On our Hollywood tour we go back in time to when the name first appeared on maps in the 1880’s, 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). As you walk the streets you’ll see up close 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 (the home of the Oscars) and the TCL Chinese Theater where your Hollywood tour ends – at the perfect place to get lunch or to head into downtown for our LA: Wild West to Now tour.
Almost every visitor to Los Angeles wants to see Hollywood, the name has become synonymous with the entertainment industry here and is famous all over the world, but don’t be fooled by the touts on the Hollywood Walk of Fame offering “glitz and glamor” celebrity bus tours of stars houses – those tours basically involve being given completely wrong information while being driven around in an uninsured death-trap on wheels. And don’t be tricked either by other Hollywood tour companies that have tried to copy us – we don’t use headsets, flags, name badges or other gimmicks, we keep it real on The Real Hollywood Tour.
Our tours can sell out. If you cannot make a booking 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.
