Oh, the Places We’ll Go!

  • Did a full day walking tour of LA. Our tour guide Damien was very knowledgeable and passionate about giving us all information in a clear and concise way. The tour was very well planned and organised and was not tiring.

  • Angela took us inside some beautiful Broadway theaters, told us about LA history and was very enthusiastic about her city. The great thing was that she actually took us inside the buildings. Plus after the tour we went for the 35cent cocktails! Great tour and great guide!

  • I did the Historic Core Tour!!! It was an awesome walking tour and very informative even for this Angeleno!! I am downtown daily and drive past this area and never knew the history of various locations of the city!! This provides that!!

Tour Hollywood in the morning!

We go back in time on our Hollywood tour to when the name first appeared on maps in the late nineteenth century, then we’ll tell you how and why the movie industry moved to this small town in 1910-11, at which time the town itself didn’t even have a bar or movie-theater of its own. We’ll also show you all the most iconic buildings on the famous Walk of Fame, including the oldest house in Hollywood (where Charlie Chaplin’s kids went to school), the Capitol Records Building, the Egyptian Theater and the TCL Chinese Theater, where your Hollywood tour finishes – in the heart of Hollywood.
