San Francisco Movie Sights City Tour

Explore San Francisco’s cinematic history with an actor for a guide on this tour of the city’s role in over 50 movies. This tour is designed for movie buffs who will get an inside look at where dozens of classic and recent movies were filmed. See the scenes of high-speed car chases, dramatic ocean rescues, and nostalgic TV homes.

What to Expect

Meet your guide at Fisherman’s Wharf and start your comprehensive tour of San Francisco’s film history. Watch classic movie clips as you go, and match the sights to the films they appeared in.

View Lombard Street “the crookedest street in the world” on your way to North Beach, pass by St. Peter and Paul Church and Washington Square seen in Dirty Harry, drive through the financial district and Nobb Hill, which made cameos in Vertigo, Bullitt, The Wedding Planner, and The Rock.

Next, stop at Alamo Square to see the Painted Ladies, and think back to the opening scene from Full House. Continue on to Golden Gate Park and relive the epic chase scene from Bullitt.

Next see views of Alcatraz, the Palace of Fine Arts, and the Golden Gate Bridge, before arriving in Pacific Heights where Mrs. Doubtfire was filmed. The tour ends at the original departure point.

Movie time

The movie tour is great! It was really nice to see the movie on the bus screen and then see the real spots all throughout the city. Our guide was excellent! He really explained a lot of the details during the entire tour. Good time!
