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

Stuart was so knowledgeable & was worth the day with him. I had been to LA multiple times before but this is the first time I had taken a tour – so thrilled to have this experience with my mom & sister. I would recommend this tour again & again.

Did a walking tour of LA (LA in a Day). Vicky started us off with the Hollywood tour & Damien (who is also the owner) was our guide for the rest of the day. The entire day was awesome, I suggest this tour. There isn’t that much walking, to be honest. It’s very fun!

My boyfriend & I took the DTLA Murder Mystery Ghost tour with Stuart as our guide & had the most amazing time! We had experiences we will never forget! We were able to see parts & people of Los Angeles that we never would have without Stuart. I give this 10/10. If we visit again, this will be at the top of our to do list!

Absolutely amazing! Highly recommend taking both The Real Hollywood Tour & the Central Downtown LA tour! Our time in LA wouldn’t have been the same. Great way to learn about the city, see it from a different angle, explore the local life & learn about its history & filming industry. Damien our guide was fantastic!

Sylvie was our host & was fantastic. She had a lot of local knowledge & gave her unique perspective as someone who had moved to the area many years ago, so she had an outsider’s as well as an insider’s perspective. The tour gave us a great overview of Santa Monica & Venice & set us up for a great rest of the day.

We took 2 tours, the Santa Monica & Venice Bike tour (with Sylvie) & the Real Hollywood tour (with Damien). Both were great & highly recommended. Sylvie & Damien were informative, knowledgeable & easy to talk to. They were like you were with friends. We were traveling as a family of 4 with 2 boys (15 & 12). We all enjoyed the tours.

What is the Hollywood Speakeasy Bar Tour? It’s a time-traveling caper that starts by whisking you back to golden-age Hollywood, then transports you to a rooftop bar overlooking the neon-lit streets, before taking you inside a hidden historic speakeasy and the birthplace of the Oscars.

The Hollywood Speakeasy Bar tour starts at the famed Frolic Room (inside the Pantages Theatre). Since the 1930’s the bar has been used by many actors that graced the stage next door and was a regular haunt of Los Angeles poet Charles Bukowski. Next we’ll visit a recent arrival here from France, Mama Shelter – and her beautiful rooftop bar. From there you can look over the rooftops and see all the way from the iconic Hollywood Sign to the towers of downtown Los Angeles.

After that we’ll discover a speakeasy bar that’s hidden in the oldest house in Hollywood, before ending the tour at a glamorous restaurant used by the stars from 1919 to today. During the course of the night we’ll regale you with stories and anecdotes detailing how this small farming town in the Wild West became the most famous place on earth. By the end of the tour you’ll have learned a lot about Hollywood history, enjoyed cocktails that fitted each location and eaten some good food. In other words a great experience of Los Angeles.

Join us on the Hollywood Speakeasy Bar Tour and have the adventure of a nighttime.
