A bit pricey but a great tour!
Sep 2021
I've lived in California most of my life and in the Bay Area for over a decade, so I've done the touristy stuff and I've done the local stuff, but this was still quite a unique and fun tour. We got picked up in a van at Fisherman's Wharf and got a checklist, broken out by neighborhood, of all the movies we were going to see filming locations of (with year of release and top billed stars listed as well!). There was a big-screen TV toward the front of the van that everyone could see and we watched clips of movies as we drove by the locations they were filmed at, all the while the guide Bryan giving narration of the movie, the scenes, the history of the area, and all kinds of interesting info. One could stay in the van the entire time, but there were a few spots to get out and take a bathroom break, take pictures, or go to an extra site or two. The whole thing took almost exactly 3 hours and we were dropped off right at the entrance to Fisherman's Wharf.
Definitely worth it!

If you are a movie buff, this is a must do tour. You will watch movie clips on the screen as you’re passing by them. There are three stops on the tour, where you can take pictures or have a restroom break Bryan was the perfect tour guide. Apart from being a very nice man, he is very knowledgable about movies and the main attractions of the city. Along the way he gave us tips on how to get around the city easier and nice places to visit. He also take great pictures. We had a fun time and will go again on another visit to San Francisco.
