Yelp Review Hollywood Northwest

       
   

The tour offered just exactly what I was looking for.  I was fortunate enough to be in from out of town and on a visit to Portland this past weekend.   Since I am very much a movie and TV fan, I explored a few internet possibilities for tours that offer driving tours to see various locations where some of my favorite shows are filmed.   I was especially interested in Grimm and Twilight related sites.   The tour that Dan offers seemed to fit the bill and I contracted with him to take a four hour tour this past Sunday.    The tour offered just exactly what I was looking for and Dan does several things very right on the tour:
1. Not only do you visit filming locations from newer movies and shows such as Grimm and Twilight, but you see sights from the newer show Portlandia.   We also stopped by, or swung past, sites from older movies such as Drugstore Cowboy, The Haunting of Sarah Hardy, and Body of Evidence.
2. Dan shows scenes from the various TV shows and movies that were filmed at each upcoming tour stop on a large screen TV at the front of the bus that faces us tourists.   This gives you something to view while traveling to the next stop, besides enjoying the sights of the beautiful city of Portland.   
3. Dan has appeared in a scene or two from Grimm and a few scenes from Portlandia.   He proudly displays these scenes on DVD cuts on the TV screen in the bus and offers insights to these productions.   That is a big plus and lends credibility to the tour.   He is willing to answer questions about his experiences and it makes a couple of the stops that much more meaningful.
4. Dan is a good photographer and prides himself on this fact.   He takes pictures of clients at each film location site and posts these pictures on a web site for you to download after the tour at no extra charge.
5. Dan dropped me off at the top of the Portland tram and picked me up at the bottom, since there is no charge for the downhill tram run.    This was a nice surprise and added bonus.
6. Dan is aware of his clients needs and makes stops as necessary for restroom breaks or snacks.

If you are grumpy, if you expect the world owes you something perfect and over the top, if you are expecting an inexpensive cookie cutter tour that is excessively polished and done several times a day and must be honed to perfection, then this may not be your cup of tea.   

However, If you are a big movie and TV fan like myself, you like to support small businesses like Dan's, you enjoy driving around and seeing a beautiful city like Portland, you enjoy having someone else do the driving while you relax, and you enjoy a more personal  touch, then this tour is definitely for you.

Comment from Daniel B. of Hollywood Northwest Tour 6/5/2013    « Hide
It was great having you aboard!  It is nice to have someone who is so interested in the tour that they take notes!   I've made friends with the owners of the real house used as Nick's house, the owners of the real Spice Shop, the owner of the real Java Joint Portland-all used in Grimm, the real Feminist bookstore and they (the real people) love to tell my tourists about how the Grimm people took over their facilities to film.
A scene was filming on the Portland tram and the conductor would love to tell you all about it and show you the pictures he made during the Grimm filming!

 5/6/2013 Yelp Reviews Hollywood Northweest

My experience on this tour was very different than the one review I  had read before taking the tour last weekend.  We were a family of 5, including 2 teenagers, and we found the tour fun, amusing and interesting, sort of a mini-"back-lot" peek into the workings of Hollywood in our own backyard.  It was cool to see the real houses and storefronts that we see on shows we watch.  We're all Portlandia fans, and we even got to eat lunch at one of the restaurants featured in several episodes, the Women's Bookstore, the areas where they shot The Spirit Of The 90's videos, as well as a few of the houses used in Grimm.  He even showed us the garbage dumpster where Tonya Harding disposed some private papers that were later found and led to her own conviction.  The guide was funny and well-prepared, including having a large flat-screen monitor in the bus over his head showing segments of the TV show that featured the places we were visiting.  He's a funny guy, and we've already recommended the tour to our friends. . .

Alan Smithee

I never laughed so hard .  The guide makes tons of jokes that are very subtle And some people may not get the jokes.  Guide makes it a custom tour so if you like something special he can take you there. He checks the navigation to get you fastest to any Grimm Twilight or Portlandia set you want.  New buses with nice new plush seats and big windows to see the views. 
I love his character cut outs. He made a group shot with Edward Cullen in the back.  The pics are free and my friends at work laughed when they noticed Edward in the last row! Haa haa. Worth the money.

This tour is educational.  I didn't know that so many movies are made in Oregon, like Madonna's movie, Jack Nicholson's.  Also Grimm on NBC is done here.  The tour shows you all the sets and the coach has a big HD TV that shows the scenes as you drive to the set. So its like MAGIC to see the scene on the HD TV in front of you and then step off the bus right into Monroe's front yard, or Hank's street.  A professional Hollywood Photographer comes along and makes pictures of you on the Hollywood sets and you get the pictures FOR FREE to show to your family and friends once you get home.  You get more than you pay for with this experience.
