What you'll do
NOTICE: If your travel date isn't on the calendar, please contact me directly to arrange a booking. Escape with me to California’s cinematic Sonoma County and beyond on a full-day adventure from San Francisco! Beginning with a pickup at a cafe outside San Francisco’s City Hall and a stop at George Lucas’ Industrial Light and Magic facility in The Presidio, we’ll head across the Golden Gate Bridge to Sonoma County. There, we’ll visit filming locations from over 25 movies past and present while watching clips in our comfortable, customized 6 passenger van or SUV. We’ll visit sites from Temple of Doom, The Right Stuff, Tucker, Scream, Bottle Shock, Basic Instinct, Peggy Sue Got Married, American Graffiti, and MANY more. I’ll give you fun behind the scenes trivia, and the inside scoop on current local film productions. Along the way, we’ll stop for a wine tasting at Viansa Sonoma or Kunde Winery, featured in the Alan Rickman film Bottle Shock. After a delicious lunch at Jack London Saloon in Glen Ellen (included in price), our premiere destination is Coppola Vineyard in Geyserville, where you’ll receive a personal tour of Francis Ford Coppola’s movie memorabilia collection. Returning to San Francisco, we’ll stop in downtown Petaluma for an American Graffiti themed treat! Contact me for groups larger than 5.
