Thanks so much for these kind words, it means the world to me!

I'm really thankful for this, Ty, great to see you again.
It is not the generic sightseeing tour in Hollywood, it doesn’t go through the typical photo-taking checkpoint. It is all about the history of Hollywood and learning the fascinating development in the industry over decades, with visits to some interesting historic sites that you just...More
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
If you want to learn about the actual history of Hollywood and where it all began, then this tour is for you. Philip has done an astronomical amount of research and passes it along so that it's not only educational, but fun as well. You...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
I have taken many walking tours in the world, but this was one of the best!

I wanted to feel and learn about Hollywood, because I love super...More
My son lives in LA and while we were visiting we looked for something different - something that would be more special than past celebrity homes and landmarks. Well, boy did we find it! Philip's fantastical tour of the location of the birth of Hollywood...More
As he said at the start of the tour - have a hat, a bottle of water and your imagination.
It was amazing how much had happened in a small area and I loved the stories about the start of the movies and later on...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
partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
