Want to do a Hollywood tour that has some real history and substance and isn’t all “glitz and glamor” (and doesn’t involve being driven around in an uninsured death-trap on wheels)? On our Hollywood tour we go back in time to when the name first appeared on maps in the late nineteenth century, then we’ll tell you how and why the movie industry first moved here in the early twentieth century (at which time the town itself didn’t even have a bar or movie-theater of its own). We’ll also show you the many iconic buildings on the famous Walk of Fame, including the Capitol Records Building, the oldest house in Hollywood (where Charlie Chaplin’s kids went to school), the Egyptian Theater, the Dolby Theater and the TCL Chinese Theater, where your Hollywood tour finishes – in the heart of Hollywood.
Our tours can sell out. If you cannot make a booking because of that email us at [email protected], telling us when you want to do the tour and how many guests are in your party, and if we can squeeze you in we’ll let you know.
