If you want to know about the history of the entertainment industry in Hollywood, this is your tour. Phillip has planned out the tour in such great detail that he gives you the most possible information in the shortest amount of time with the least possible walking. He teaches you about the start of motion picture companies, television centers, radio stations and entertainment centers.

You won't go near Hollywood Blvd. on this tour. Phillip is all about where the action took place. If your focus is movie premiers or the walk of fame, there are plenty of other tours for you. This is the tour for people truly interested in how the movie industry became what it became.

I've gone on a lot of tours in Los Angeles/Hollywood. This was the best one by far.

Philip does an incredible jovb explaining the history of Hollywood, starting with how it got on the map and how it got its name. You get more recent history too, but the focus is definitely on the past. This tour is a must for history buffs and anyone that wants to dig below the surface.

Felix totally brought old Hollywood to life for us, drawing upon his encyclopedic knowledge and entertaining presentation to take us on a captivating walk past the sites where history happened. On the way, we heard stories about the personalities who made the history happen. A great tour!
