Had a great experience even though it rained all the way through. We were going to participate rain or shine, I guess no one else wanted to. Learned a few things and definitely will be watching movies more closely for scenery matches. Our guide was giving us excellent infos, was very personable and we all enjoyed the tour and sightseeing , despite the rain.

If you're a visitor to Vancouver (or a local) this is an awesome tour to several locations used by productions in Vancouver. It was very cool to see the actual places used in film and television production.

Being able to watch a clip of the scene while standing at the location was amazing and Austin was able to share the details that changed these familiar places into other "locations." It was fascinating to learn how many different productions use the same location for different projects and gain some insight into why some places show up again and again in different shows. As a British Columbian, I get a kick out of recognizing Vancouver (and other places in the province) when they show up in film and television. This tour gave me a much better appreciation of how much work is actually being done in the city.

The tour length was perfect - about 3 hours in total with stops spaced out well and a good variety of movies and films included. Austin was entertaining and very knowledgeable and kept the pace moving along while also spending time to answer questions in depth. As a local actor, he's got lots of experience to share.

I definitely recommend this tour for both locals and visitors - it's a great way to spend a couple of hours and see Vancouver through the lens of your favourite movies and television shows.

This is a fantastic three hour walking tour in Vancouver. Our guide Daley was very knowledgeable about the Film & TV making industry in Vancouver. On an iPad, we watched footage of movies & shows that had been filmed outside of numerous buildings and on many street locations. We even got to do a “take” of a Reese Witherspoon movie outside of the Vancouver Public Library. I highly recommend this walking tour and a bonus is that you visit other tourist destinations like Chinatown and Gastown on the way too. *****

Had a day in Vancouver before my cruise and the "Hollywood North" waking tour caught my eye on Viator. So glad I signed up for it. The young man, who is a working actor in Vancouver, who led the tour was extremely well informed about filming locations in downtown Vancouver as well as anecdotal information about projects filmed here. The guide was very personable and gladly answered any questions. Instead of just pointing out various filming locations when we were at them the guide would show us scenes on a tablet from tv shows and films that were actually filmed where we were at. So cool to see how these Vancouver locations were used in the finished products. A bonus to the interesting tour of filming locations is that you get to see a lot of downtown Vancouver including Chinatown and Gastown. I highly recommend this tour! A great value for the money and is time well spent in Vancouver.

Our first day in Vancouver, so we wanted to get to know the city's highlights without losing too much time. We met our fantastic guide, Austin, at Robson, and he took us on a great walking tour, exploring different settings from some of our favorite shows and movies, like Supernatural, IZombie, Deadpool, several DC series...
Austin gave some amazing info on the settings and on Vancouver in general, also giving some tips on where to go, as well as being incredibly considerate to the pace we were walking and if we needed a drink.
I highly recommend this tour, especially if it's the first time visiting Vancouver.

I bought this tour for my movie-loving boyfriend as a birthday gift. We live here but it was really, really cool to see the city through different eyes. Movie magic is pretty wild! The guide (and guide-in-training) were both friendly and knowledgeable. It was cool to have the inside scoop of the industry here in Hollywood North.

This was a fantastic tour! Not only did we see the sites used for shooting various movies and TV shows, we also got some of the real-world history behind the places we were seeing.

Austin was our main guide and Rahat (sorry if I butchered the spelling!) was shadowing. Not only were both Austin and Rahat were super knowledgeable about the film and TV industry (obvious!) but also had plenty to share about Vancouver in general. (BTW, thanks for the recommendations!)

All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Highly recommended, especially if you're interested in the film and TV industry!

The film and TV industry in Vancouver is part of what makes the city so special, so it's great to have a tour that explores it through that lens. I learnt so much and was shown some hidden gems in the city I wouldn't have visited otherwise. Austin, my tour guide, was so friendly and knowledgeable and went the extra mile to make the experience a great one. The tour was really interactive and I got to ask a bunch of questions too.

This is a really wonderful tour.
I feel grateful !
Highly recommended !
I learned a lot of things behind the scenes of movies and TV.

Austin who is a guide and a founder of this tour company is a real actor appearing lots of movies and TV , and he guided many different places in Vancouver where shootings of famous movies have taken placed,
informatively and energetically as walking around.

He guided the scenes and secrets of shootings from “Deadpool”, “Mission Impossible” , “Fifty Shades of Gray “ and so on !!!

He is carrying a speaker in his backpack and shows you his iPad, so definitely you’ll be able to feel the scenes real.
The activity which we read the scripts and played the rolls copying the actor and the actress in the comedy in front of the same building as the scene was fun, you’ll enjoy it !

I learned the way of treating local people around the shootings of actors and staff was polite and respectable.
I re acknowledged Vancouver was a very unique city,
It can be Seattle, China, can be NewYork, and everywhere thanks to the efforts of filmmakers.
Also you can learn sort of economics of this industry.
It survived well while the world had been going though the Covid-19 situation, making people feel happier filming in Vancouver.

When you’ll watch the movies next time, you’ll see the great real efforts a lot of people are making also behind the scenes, and I’m sure your experiences will be extended and turn into being brand new.

Austin’s guide was so energetic but he was always very kind caring about my energy state and gave me the relaxing break time in beautiful Dr. Sun Yat-sen Chinese garden where the action movie was filmed .
If you’d join it with your children or your grandparents,
you’d find it comfortable thanks to their caring mind.

I hope you will enjoy this totally unique tour !

Hearty Thanks
