    If you like the movies and if you're on this trip well you obviously do, well you have found one of the best tours on the West coast, Bryan is just a mine of fantastic information and absolutely makes this tour what it is , We took this tour on our first day in San Francisco so it was a very good introduction the city Not only will you see a lot of San Francisco but Bryan will point out specific scenes in a lot of very different films with the useful big screen in the bus. Bryan's attention to detail is second to none so if you fancy a wonderful film based tour of the lovely city of San Francisco then you must do this I'd happily do it again given the choice I'll rate it 10/10

Thanks for making our trip so memorable Bryan! We would highly recommend to anyone ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Super movie and general location tour of SF by Bryan. His van is very well set up with a tv/video screen to show clips of the various movies as you approach their location or are at them. So many hills, so many movies ! Car chases, Star Trek, Vertigo, Basic Instinct non-adult location, Herbie and so much more. The Mrs Doubtfire house has changed color but still there on Steiner - as Sally Field told everyone on the call ! Nice scenic stops on the way too. A bonus was to see the lobby of Lucas Film, may not reoccur, where kind receptionist allowed us see and photo various memorabilia. No video and no touching cleared stated and observed ! Highly recommended !

    So much fun! We got to see so many sights in San Francisco, and the guide was very knowledgeable. I currently live in SF and learned so many new things on this tour. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.

    When my fiance suggested we go on a three hour movie bus tour of SF, I was very skeptical. However, this turned out to be a wonderful way to spend a morning! We covered so much ground and it was amazing. Our guide was knowledgeable, kind, and thoughtful. Seeing the actual spots alongside the video clips from so many different movies was incredible and really helped me learn the city. Over the next few days we'd be in various places and I'd remember the spots on the tour! Our guide took us to great photo spots at Alamo Square and the Golden Gate bridge and then stopped at a few other spots for photo ops like the Mrs. Doubtfire house and the school from The Princess Diaries. I also really appreciated the sojourn through the Haight-Ashbury even though there weren't any movie clips. He also pointed out bathroom break opportunities. Overall, well worth the time and money.

    This was an amazing tour that I will recommend to anyone that goes to San Francisco. Bryan is incredibly kind and extremely knowledgeable of the movies he highlights and San Francisco in general. He goes above and beyond by connecting before the trip to make sure you know where you’re going to meet him before the tour and offers help afterward. I’m so glad we decided to go on this tour! Thank you, Bryan! 10/10!

    We both enjoyed our tour. The guide was energetic and informative. The movie clips were entertaining and well timed with the spots we saw. San Francisco looked beautiful; this was a wonderful way to see it.

    Wonderful tour that covers so many movies, so many of SF districts and history too! Video clips of each movie are played as you approach them on the tour - so you don’t have to be a major movie buff already (my boyfriend is but I’m not!) Bryan the guide is so knowledgeable and personable - he keeps you engaged and learned what movie locations we were most excited for - so we could spend more time on them. We recommend the SF Movie Sights Tour to everyone!
