as travelling through USA searching shoting locations is our hobby we decided to book this tour. Simply found at internet. Interesting web page, FAQ explaining most important topics, smooth booking procedurę ( not always easy for somebody who tries this from abroad and is not an USA citizen and cannot provide ZIP code! ). Clear instruction, pick up provided and when all collected on board tour started at Fisherman's Wharf and ended there. We have participated this tour on 2/09. Our guide was natural born story teller. Atmosphere on board was great. Shoting locations presented in paralel with on board big screen presentations and trailers. Sound promptly adjusted. A few stops on the way for photos. We have been for the second time in SF thus it was also nice opportunity for visiting this charming city by occasion again. We asked our guide and all guys in the bus for easy American English and we received it thus the explanations and also discussions with other guests was much easier for us to understand. We did not notice in fact when those 3 hours on board passed. If you want to know SF from Movies shot there perspective take this tour!

We got off to a bad start because we were at the wrong meeting point! Not everyone travels with a functioning phone and internet access and the confirmation email I received had old instructions on it - the meeting spot had changed. We had to ask a taxi driver to lend us his phone to call the company, we took a $20 taxi ride to meet up with the tour further down the track, but the disappointing thing was that neither the tour leader nor the company acknowledged us - we felt like 'the naughty people' and therefore didn't really settle down and enjoy the tour.

Hi Susan:

Thanks very much for your review. I apologize for the reception you felt you received from the guide and the company. That is definitely out of character (no pun intended) for SF Movie Tours and should not have happened. In addition, you should have been reimbursed for the taxi fare, as that is our policy in situations like you encountered.

We are always working to further clarify our pick up points at Union Square and Nob Hill, so that this does not happen again, and we appreciate your input on how this can be improved.

This was by far the best way to tour the city. You see almost everything the city has to offer while learning fun pop culture trivia. We stopped at great photo locations and learned some history of the city as well.
