Georgette Blau | On Location Tours
On Location Tours is the Concierge Choice Award Winner for Sightseeing and Tours. It's one of the world’s largest TV and movie tour companies and the only one operating in multiple cities, including Chicago, New York City, Boston and Los Angeles. The company was founded by Georgette Blau in 1999.
Binge-watchers and movie buffs love to travel and visit the locations that they've seen on screen, which contributes to a sense of nostalgic joy. People generally "see" their favorite cities before actually "visiting" these cities through the screen! Studies have shown that locations that have been used in TV shows and movies experience a surge in tourism after they have been released. On Location Tours’ success is due largely in part to this very statistic.
On Location Tours hires guides who are also actors and actresses and have worked on TV and movie shows set in Chicago. They share behind-the-scenes info and trivia as they take you from place-to-place.
There are two tours in Chicago: one downtown and one that ventures out to the suburbs. When you take the two-hour walking tour downtown, you visit sites from shows and movies like Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, The Untouchables, The Dark Knight, The Bear and many more.
