You don’t know New York until you’ve seen it through the eyes of the irrepressible Leslie Jordan. That’s what a lucky group learned July 27 as the actor turned NYC tour guide for the day and employed his trademark sassy wit to lead a sightseeing tour around the city’s landmarks. The Will & Grace star dropped names, showbiz gossip, and hilarious tales at every turn.
Jordan partnered with GetYourGuide, an online booking platform for unforgettable travel experiences, which allows you to find a guide around the world and book really unique —even tailored specifically for you — tours.
“What a trip!” Jordan told the press after leading the tour. “It was so fun to take a big bite out of the Big Apple from Times Square to Strawberry Fields, Carnegie Hall and the Theater District, sprinkled with some cheeky gossip and plenty of inappropriate humor! Touring the city that never sleeps took a very long New York minute — especially during rush hour when NOTHING moves.”
Jordan added “I’m glad I wasn’t driving, because there are only three kinds of drivers here, maniacs and those who aren’t good at math. Anyway, thanks to GetYourGuide, I put a bus full of people in a wonderful New York state of mind — instead of sleep — and it was such good fun I can’t wait to do it again.”
Unfortunately, he wasn’t being literal. This was a one-time experience, but plenty of others are available via the site. And you can follow in Jordan’s tires, by pursuing the stops at GetYourGuide New York City bus tour. The tour bus traveled to Radio City Music Hall, Times Square, Gramercy Park, The Plaza Hotel, Carnegie Hall, and other iconic NYC spots.
