Rachel McAdams is an amazing actress and self-professed horrible tour guide.

The 36-year-old actress has been featured in movies such as “The Notebook” and “Mean Girls” and most recently in the HBO series “True Detective.”

She stopped by “The Tonight Show” to regale Jimmy Fallon with various anecdotes from her life.

More apropos to we travel enthusiasts, McAdams revealed that she once served as a New York City tour guide.

Unfortunately for those who took her tour, information on the city was a bit scant.

Here is the interview thanks to Hulu:

This interview offers a very valuable lesson for tour guide operators. Ottawa makes for an awful training ground for New York City insight.

That is where McAdams was supposed to work when opportunity struck and she found herself giving point-by-point navigation of the town on a bus.

It couldn’t have been any worse than anything Kramer would have delivered:

McAdams explains how things went awry from the start: “When I was a tour guide in New York, I had never been to New York.”

Normally, that would be a prerequisite to being a New York tour guide, but it sounds like the eighth graders received one whopping detailed romp around town.

In the end, a confounded group presumably departed not knowing with certainty where the Mets play.

Things worked out well for McAdams, however, because she has had a great career in Hollywood and may be up for a role in the upcoming “Doctor Strange” movie.

We might add that producers would do well not to give her binders of info on the character.
