The most important thing if you want to see NEOWISE is to have a clear view to the north, either the north-east in the morning or the north-west in the evening. This Sky & Telescope article provides detailed charts where to look for the next two weeks. As they point out, you will have best results for the next few days 1-2 hours before sunrise, or after the 15th 1-2 hours after sunset.
I had to get up very early two days ago (3:00 am here in Munich) to see it. I took a short walk to the fields nearby my neighborhood where I had a clear view to the north and there it was, a lovely glowing coma and a long and smooth tail pointing upwards, away from the Sun, easily visible to the naked eye but a special treat in my 10x50 binoculars. If you have binoculars be sure to use them in the hunt. A telescope is unnecessary and the magnification will be too strong.
Good luck finding NEOWISE and enjoy this rare spectacle.
