NOTICE: If your travel date isn't on the calendar, please contact me directly to arrange a booking. Experience the perfect blend of a driving city tour and a guided urban hike! After meeting at the best coffee shop in the high-rise Rincon Hill neighborhood, we'll hop in my van and explore the "7 Historic Hills" of San Francisco. These were the first named hills on original maps of the city. I’ll show you my city from a cinematic perspective, taking you to several iconic movie landmarks along our route. Departing Rincon Hill, we'll head to Mount Davidson. A brief hike will lead us to a stunning, 103 foot tall cross at the hill’s peak. Next up is Twin Peaks, geographical center of the city, where we'll take in the best panoramic view of S.F. and the Pacific Ocean. We'll then drive down the beautiful Eucalyptus lined Mount Sutro, and cut through the Haight Ashbury district on our way to Nob Hill. There, we'll explore the gothic Grace Cathedral and learn about the neighborhood's wealthy history. Next stop is Russian Hill, where we'll wind our way down Lombard Street on route to Telegraph Hill. There, I'll take you to Coit Tower and we'll try to catch a glimpse of the neighborhood's famous wild parrots. Our final drop off is the historic Ferry Building on Market Street, where we'll part ways with a ton of great pictures, memories, and stories to tell about our adventure!
I’m Wylie Herman, a professional actor and filmmaker in San Francisco who's lived and worked in the Bay Area for over 20 years. I’ve always enjoyed taking friends and family to visit some of the most famous (and cinematic) locations in San Francisco, and I love sharing this unique experience with new visitors from around the world! As a guide for San Francisco Movie Tours for over a decade, I’ve learned the importance of connecting with every guest on a personal level. On my tours, each guest feels like the star of their own adventure.
