FRIENDS Virtual Tour

Award-winning NYC Tour Company Launches F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Virtual Tour

The One Where Friends Comes to Your Apartment

Oh. My. God. Could this BE any more exciting? Just in time for the Friends 25th anniversary, On Location Tours has launched a Friends Virtual Tour, where YOU can be your own cast member alongside Monica, Rachel, Phoebe, Chandler, Ross and Joey! This activity is perfect for those desperate to beat the winter (and quarantine) blues.

The Friends Virtual Tour is the latest from Georgette Blau, founder of On Location Tours, one of the world’s largest TV and movie tour companies, based in New York City.  With Covid-19 shutting down tourism, On Location Tours had to “pivot” their business model to ensure a safe experience for everyone. The Friends New York City apartment building was a famous location highlight on the NYC TV and Movie Tour. Since tour operations are “on a break” due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the virtual tour will let any Friends fan jump into second gear, and it will make their day, their week, their month, and even their year! The tour is hosted by tour guide Roseanne Almanzar, an actress and mother who has been a dedicated staff member of On Location Tours for 20 years.

Roseanne takes Friends’ fans on a 40-minute tour to 18 locations made famous by the acclaimed series. Additionally, purchasing a ticket will also grant a customer admission to the virtual Friends trivia night, which On Location Tours holds monthly.  The trivia ticket can also be purchased separate from the tour.

If customers are based in the US, they can purchase an additional add-on Friends box shipped to their home address (don’t worry, a smelly cat isn’t included). The box contains a Central Perk mug along with four other surprise keepsake items. The full package (tour, trivia, and goodie box) is $68, and the tour + trivia (no goodie box) is $29.  If you would like more information about The Friends Virtual Tour, please contact Erin Miller by email.

ABOUT ASIA MONET

Born in Yorba Linda, California, Asia first took interest in gymnastics when she was just a toddler. Quickly realizing she had a natural athleticism and a love for movement, her parents enrolled her in dance lessons. At the young age of five, she made history by becoming the youngest StarPower National Championship winner to ever take the title. She has since gone on to win or place at numerous competitions. When Asia is not busy showcasing her many talents, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends at the pool, going to the mall, or reading a good book. She also loves arts and crafts as well as songwriting.
 
At such a young age, Asia is no stranger to the small screen. She made her television debut at only six years old when she entered the first season of Lifetime’s Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition. Despite being the youngest in the competition, she beat dancers up to twice her age to make it to the finale. Her hard-hitting, sassy moves earned her third overall. After the competition, Asia joined Abby Lee Miller’s elite junior competition team on season 3 of Dance Moms. Asia won virtually every competition she entered while on the show, blowing her opponents away with her talent.
