Fun and knowledge tour

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.
Movie sight 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 Must Do for movie buffs

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!
Great way to spend the afternoon

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.
It was great!!

Very informative very small group only 5 people total. Good value. Only 1 problem i didn’t not like them asking us for a tip at end so they could put toward lunch. I know my place and don’t like being asked to do so
