Brian is a great guide and driver. He is knowledgeable about the movies and SF landmarks and places. He is also really friendly and helpful. It was an enjoyable tour and offers a different perspective than a normal city tour.

Our friends experience exceeded expectations! Brian met us exactly on time and greeted us in a very friendly , warm manner!!! The tour was amazing whether one is a “movie buff” like my husband, or just someone interested in a great tour of the city! So much better than schlepping in and off a bus !!!! Thank you so much !

A great experience. Bryan is very knowledgeable, professional and pleasant. If you are movie buff, this is a “must do” in my opinion. Classic old films and recent blockbusters are covered seamlessly!

We had an enjoyable afternoon taken around the city with AJ. She was very knowledgeable not just about the movies but the city in general. We learned lots of details that we didn't know before. The only thing missing was a bag of popcorn! Also, the bus was quite warm - make sure to sit on the shady side.

The tour was so great! Didn't realize how many different movies were made in San Francisco! Marie was like going on vacation with an old friend and she had so many interesting little antidotes about the films. A great learning experience and comfortable way to see the city too!! More than excellent!! Marie, you're Terrific!!!

We have been to San Francisco a number of times but we've never really thought about the wealth of film footage that takes place in the city. Marie, our guide, was a vivacious and knowledgeable source of information about both film and facts about the city. Regardless of an interest in film or not, this would be a great overview of the city. Highly recommend this tour if you're a flick fan.

Would recommend this tour very interesting, and informative as to how the movies are made, and what they do to sometimes fool us, had some laughs along the way too.
