THE REAL HOLLYWOOD TOUR
Date(s) - 08/19/2023
10:00 am - 12:00 pm
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 start-up movie industry first moved to this small farming town in the early twentieth century. By walking the streets of Hollywood you’ll get the chance to discover the many hidden historic sites in the area (such as the oldest house in Hollywood, where Charlie Chaplin’s kids went to school), as well offering you the best up close and personal experiences of such icons as the Walk of Fame, the Capitol Records Building, the Egyptian Theater, the Dolby Theater (the home of the Oscars) and the TCL Chinese Theater where your Hollywood tour ends, in the perfect place to get lunch or get some great shots of the Hollywood Sign for Instagram.
You can combine this tour with our Central Downtown LA tour if you book both tours for the same day. If you do the guide will take you from Hollywood to downtown and all travel between and during the tours on the Los Angeles Metro is included. The two tours then merge to create one six hour tour of Hollywood and downtown, the two most historic parts of the city.
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.
