From the Screen to the Streets: Succession Tour Launches in NYC With Luxe Giveaway

By Hedy Phillips
Experience First Succession Tour

In HBO’s “Succession,” New York City isn’t led by celebrities or any governing body. Instead, the city that never sleeps is led by a powerful family of incredible wealth: the Roys. 

With patriarch Logan Roy at the helm, the family uses Manhattan as their playground, running their media conglomerate Waystar/Royco out of big shiny buildings, all while hurling insults and millions of dollars at their family members at every turn. In short, “Succession” is addictive TV, and it largely takes place in beautiful New York City.

Waystar/Royco may not be real, and you might not see Shiv shopping at The Row on the Upper East Side next time you’re ready to drop a cool $10K on some quiet luxury wardrobe pieces, but you can see some of the sights from the show with our Unofficial Succession Tour. This tour will show you some recognizable spots from the HBO show and show you behind the scenes of the power players in New York City past and present. 

Read on for everything you need to know about experiencing “Succession” here in New York with our exclusive tour — plus find out how you can win a luxury NYC experience, including a helicopter ride over the city.

About the ‘Succession’ tour

Experience First Succession Tour

If you found yourself watching every episode of “Succession” with your heart racing while  Logan Roy’s car raced through New York City traffic to get him from his palatial apartment to Waystar/Royco headquarters and thought to yourself, “I want to be there,” now is your chance. 

Our “Succession” walking tour explores some of the best — and most memorable — filming locations from all four seasons of the show. From the various places used for Waystar/Royco to a few of the different residences, this tour takes you through downtown Manhattan and into the world of the Emmy Award-winning show.

Feel like a Waystar/Royco employee on par with Cousin Greg at Chase Plaza and 4WTC — two of the filming locations for the media company’s headquarters — and see where the rich and sometimes famous await their private helicopters at the Downtown Heliport. 

As for those fancy homes, you’ll see a few of those, too. The Woolworth Building, home of Rava Roy (Kendall’s estranged wife), and the Four Seasons Private Residences, one of Kendall’s homes, are both in downtown Manhattan and on this tour. 

And of course we’ll visit Battery Park, famous from the closing shot of the show.

Here’s that scene, sort of a spoiler but not really because there’s no talking, just that moody instrumental theme song.

Since this is the spot where Kendall took his final hypothetical bow, it’s the perfect ending to our tour. If you’re looking for more to see and do in New York, just ask your guide! All our New York guides are locals and experts on their cities, so we’re happy to share insider tips.

Throughout the tour, your guide will share stories about old and new money in New York City — much like the Pierces vs. the Roys — politics over the years, how the elite power the world today, and the daily luxuries of the ultra-privileged. What you saw on “Succession” is only the beginning of what you can learn about this fascinating world.

Come explore Manhattan with us and you’ll see what we mean!

Ultimate ‘Succession’ giveaway

Experience First Succession Tour

What better way to kick off our new Unofficial Succession Tour than with a huge giveaway that’ll make you feel like you’re a Roy (without all the drama and backstabbing)? Through Oct. 18, you can enter for a chance to win one of these incredible prizes.

  • Grand prize: Win a helicopter ride for two worth over $500. This will let you see the Big Apple from the sky just like New York City’s elite do all the time — and you don’t have to go to any board meetings when you land!
  • Second prize: Enjoy dinner for two at Al Coro, which you might remember from Season 2 of the show. Boasting two Michelin stars, Al Coro offers a seasonal tasting menu with the freshest Italian food. Think lobster cannelloni, caviar culurgiones, gelato-topped dark chocolate mousse, and a wine list over 40 pages long with everything from sparkling wines and Italian whites to Burgundy and Bordeaux.
  • Third prize: Enjoy a private Unofficial Succession Tour of downtown for two. You’ll discover the difference between fact and fiction (and how much these overlap!) in this immersive walking tour that takes you behind the stories that inspired “Succession.”

Since each prize is for two people, you’ll want to bring the Greg to your Tom so you can have a true bestie getaway.

All you have to do is fill out the form to enter. You have to be an adult to enter (sorry, kids), but there’s no purchase required. And your odds are pretty good, better than Roman’s chances at becoming CEO of Waystar/Royco, if you know what I mean.

Enter to win!

“Succession” may not have ended on a high note for, well, most everyone on the show, but that’s just fiction! Here in the real world — and in the real Manhattan — you can get a taste of the luxurious life for free with this once-in-a-lifetime giveaway. With our “Succession”-themed tour, you’ll see all the sights, hear all the stories, and experience everything our tour guides have to offer. 

And if you’re lucky, you’ll get to do it for free!
