In what is undoubtedly a dream tour for any fan of Sex and the City, Airbnb is now offering the chance to spend some time in New York City with Carrie Bradshaw Sarah Jessica Parker.
Is this real life?
Aptly titled ‘Sole of the City,’ the tour will offer a look at the city that never sleeps, led by one of its most famous residents, both on the small screen and in real life.
The $510 ticket will include a tour led by Parker through Bloomingdales, a trip to the New York City Ballet, one pair of shoes from the SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker collection and frozen yogurt. Considering Parker’s shoes range from $255 to $550 UDS, it’s not a bad deal.
The Airbnb listing notes that tourists should wear comfortable shoes for shopping at Bloomingdale’s, but dress to impress for their trip to the ballet.
The tour is essentially a marketing campaign for Parker’s line of shoes, but it’s a campaign we can get behind. Parker describes the tour on Airbnb as an “unforgettable shoe-shopping experience,” writing that “I’ll help you find the perfect pair of shoes from the SJP Collection to complete your look. As we peruse the shoe department, I’ll tell you about the line and how the city that never sleeps helped inspire it.” Calling the tour “a night you won’t soon forget,” Parker promises VIP surprises and the best seats in the house at the ballet.
It would appear that Parker will only be present for the first half of the tour, which will include shopping for shoes at Bloomingdales on the Upper East Side and chatting about the city over frozen yogurt. Tourists will then be sent to the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts to watch the ballet on their own.
The new tour is part of Airbnb’s latest Experiences collection, which has now launched in New York City. In addition to Parker’s tour, customers can also take a Harlem jazz crawl, learn street dancing in South Bronx and craft crystal jewelry.
Unfortunately, Parker’s trip is already sold out, but maybe if we’re lucky, there could be a second round of tours.
We can’t help but wonder whether the tour will include any proposals featuring a pair of shoes from Parker’s collection. Well, we can always hope.
