We wanted a tour that focused on history, a sense of place and some good story telling. Felix delivered all of these in spades! His vivid stories brought those buildings to life and put them in a perspective that we could not have gotten anywhere...More
We sure enjoyed our afternoon tour with Philip ... and yes, that even includes a somewhat reluctant seventeen year old who proclaimed it as "very cool" immediately afterward. The tour was an easy walk, in an area jammed with the kind of stories and multi-media...More
My husband and I are 3rd generation native Angelenos and we enjoyed this in depth tour very much. You will be walking down a busy LA street so prepare accordingly (comfy shoes, sunscreen, etc.) but you won't actually be going terribly far. It's amazing how...More

This is a great trip of historical Hollywood studios and theaters. If you have done other typical Hollywood tours (homes, Hollywood sign etc), this tour is a great choice to learn more about the history.
The Felix in Hollywood Tour is the greatest way to learn about the real history of Hollywood and the film, music and TV industry's development. In a town that constantly reinvents itself and rejects its history, Philip proves a perfect guide into the fascinating past....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.
