If you knew that was the tag line from the great Clint Eastwood movie "Dirty Harry", shot in San Francisco, you will love this tour! If you didn't, you really need to take this tour!

From the house used in "Mrs. Doubtfire" to the hotel featured in "Vertigo," this tour will show you the filming locations for some great San Francisco movies.

Our tour will start at Alta Park in Pacific Heights. Here we will see the steps that were permanently damaged by a car chase scene during production of the Barbra Streisand and Ryan O’Neil comedy "What’s Up Doc?". We will explore several other locations in Pacific Heights, including houses from "Mrs. Doubtfire", "Bullitt" starring Steve McQueen, and "Towering Inferno" starring Paul Newman and McQueen.

Next we’ll hop on a bus towards Nob Hill where hotels such as the Fairmont and the Mark Hopkins Hotel served as locations in classic movies like Alfred Hitchcock’s "Vertigo." From here we will walk to Chinatown, the setting for the film adaptation of Amy Tan’s "The Joy Luck Club." We will then head to North Beach where "The Godfather" was written.

Bus fare is $2 extra. Also a cafe stop, and very moderately priced lunch stop at the end of tour (costs not included).

I am a huge movie lover! Every year before the Academy Awards I send my alternative movie awards to friends and family (2014 was my 7th annual). I have worked as a movie and tv extra in San Francisco, also as an actor on the streets of S.F., have been a waiter for 6 years, have dj'ed for 10 years, and am a wedding/party disc jockey small business owner since 2008. I also volunteer for "Sunday Streets San Francisco" from April-October when part of the city is closed to cars, for walkers/bicyclists, one Sunday a month. I have walked throughout many areas of San Francisco on my own, and know quite a bit of the history of the town, also. Let me share with you the greatest city in the world!
