This tour is really excellent. As you stroll down Sunset, the guide recounts one compelling historical vignette after another, as prompted by architectural landmarks and the general surroundings. Over the course of a couple hours, numerous vignettes and narrative threads are developed and woven together...More

This was a fantastic tour: humorous, live, full of real history and Hollywood anecdotes. History is a key word - the tour is not about celebrity gossip or sighting but about history of Hollywood and its “founding fathers.” We enjoyed every minute of the tour,...More

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night
