Had a great time! Our guide was very accommodating and knowledgeable. We didn’t feel rushed in the spots where we wanted to get off to snap pictures. My 14 & 8 year old loved that he included spots they wanted to see as well!

The stop under the Golden Gate Bridge was awesome. And the Bullitt stops were great too. There was a good mix of older and newer movies and now I look forward to seeing some movies I haven’t.

Arlene_N, Aug 2021
Bryan was great! His little tidbits of information were interesting and fun. He offered to show us places that weren’t part of the actual tour which we all appreciated. He was friendly, personable, knowledgeable and as ready for our adventure as we all were!!! And this tour isn’t just to show movie locations. We saw so much of what’s iconic about San Francisco too…
