What to expect
Meet up with your guide at the United Nations in the afternoon, beginning the two-hour tour with a stroll down 42nd Street. Check out the apartment of the Green Goblin, and take a trip past the Daily News Building, used as a filming location in the original ‘Superman’ film starring Christopher Reeve. You’ll then get a ‘behind-the-scenes’ look at a bar known as a famous hangout for New York’s comic artists. Also along 42nd Street are the Chrysler Building and Grand Central Terminal (with ‘Stark Tower’ looming nearby). Continue along Park Avenue, stopping to explore the historic heart of ‘Publishers’ Row,’ birthplace of some of the world’s most famous comics. You’ll see the location of the offices of Will Eisner and Bob Kane, and then see filming locations used in TV shows like ‘Gotham’ and ‘Daredevil.’ Throughout the trip, you’ll hear plenty of fascinating stories and insights into comic book history from your guide, including details about how Kryptonite was created, where Batman was saved from cancellation, and the location of keepsake left behind for NYC by The Avengers.

Great historical and architectural tour for us DC/Marvel fanatics!
Apr 2021
Our tour guide David was so knowledgeable and made the experience fantastic! I highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to explore the comic writing history of NYC and see some of the land marks where movies have been shot or used in. It explores the architecture of east midtown of the city as well. The tour was 2 hours, but not exhausting as there are many stops along the way. I would recommend this for older kids (>8) if you’re thinking of booking for your kids, as there is more of a historical focus. We will book TopDog for their other tours in the future, excellent company!

This tour was so great! Patrick was our tour guide and was very knowledgeable. We had two 11 year old superhero fans with us and he was very engaging. I left this tour wanting to rewatch all of the superhero classics. I highly recommend this on your next trip to the city.

It’s a bird...it’s a plane...it’s SUPER tour!
Oct 2020 • Friends
What a fun tour! I’ve lived in NYC for over fifteen years and I learned so much on this tour. Our guide, Patrick, was fantastic. So friendly, funny and knowledgeable. He took time to answer all of our questions and offered so many fun facts and superhero/comics tidbits, that even this comic novice was able to follow along with. If you’re looking for a fun way to fill a couple hours, I highly recommend this tour. If you’re a true comic book/superhero fan, this tour is a must!
