    The tour was very interesting and informative. Our guide was well versed in the entire city in addition to the movies. He made it not only fun but also took time in between a very well orchestrated video to add comments and local flavor to the tour. Well worth the money. Didn’t realize how many movies were set in SF!

    Our guide, Bryan, went over and above to accommodate us and to make this tour fun and informative. He knew so many fun details about the area and movies about or in San Francisco. He frequently touched base with each guest to make sure they were having fun and he rescued us from almost missing the tour due to travel complications. We had a blast and got to see cool parts of the city. Terrific tour, fantastic guide.

    Our tour guide Bryan was very knowledgeable, funny and great! The tour was interesting. I really enjoyed that there was a TV in the bus and we were shown the clip as we sat at or passed the location in San Francisco. Family friendly activity, probably middle school and up. We had ample opportunity to take pictures and see the City.
