About Us

Doug Lumsden, Founder and President, Monterey Movie Tours®
A division of Monterey Bay Scenic Tours, LLC

Doug Lumsden has owned and operated the award-winning Monterey Bay Scenic Tours before launching Monterey Movie Tours®.

“Hi movie fans, welcome to our web site! Filmmakers have been drawn to the Monterey Peninsula for nearly 100 years in search of the perfect backdrop for their movies. Our goal is to highlight some of these wonderful movies and their stars by bringing the films to life. To see or stand where a favorite actor or actress strolled is really a thrill, we look forward to sharing these experiences with you.”


National Velvet, The Ghost & Mrs. Muir, Play Misty for Me, One-Eyed Jacks, A Summer Place, and a host of other movie classics have brought the gorgeous scenery of the Monterey Peninsula to the silver screen. Even in the early days of Hollywood, starlets and dashing leading men were familiar with this popular vacation spot and jumped on the chance to make movies here.

Doug Lumsden will bring this era of Monterey’s movie-making magic back to life with a one hour lecture and video presentation entitled Monterey in the Movies!
