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.
We did The Real Hollywood tour & loved it! The tour was at a great pace & the guide (Vicky) was very knowledgeable & made the tour fun. Thank you!
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.
We had an amazing DTLA Murder Mystery Ghost tour with Damien & Dante… thank you very much from the Italian girls… very interesting & funny… absolutely recommended!
This tour was awesome! Stuart is very knowledgeable, likeable & fun. The stops on the tour were very interesting & I learned a lot. I’ve been on quite a few tours of this nature & this was one of my favorites – highly recommend!
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!

One of the best things about Los Angeles are the amazing parks we have here. The most famous is Griffith Park. Over five times the size of New York’s Central Park, Griffith Park is a wonderful resource right in the middle of LA. On any given day you’ll find Angelenos hiking, walking their dogs and jogging the many trails that criss-cross the park. Now you can enjoy it on our Mount Hollywood Hike.
For the Mount Hollywood Hike we’ll meet you at the entrance to the park, by the Greek Theater. You’ll then hike up through the Bird Sanctuary and into the Hollywood Hills as we tell you about the early inhabitants of the Los Angeles area, the Tongva. As we climb the hills you’ll see Los Angeles spread below you, so it’s a great way to get an understanding of how the city developed and how the different areas connect with each other. From the summit of Mount Hollywood you can see almost the whole of LA (depending on visibility) – the San Fernando Valley, Glendale, downtown and the Westside. From there we’ll follow the trails down, stopping at some of the best places to get photos of the Hollywood Sign, to the Griffith Observatory. We’ll finish your Mount Hollywood Hike by giving you a quick tour of the Observatory, before leaving you to enjoy this fantastic free museum. Great exercise and unforgettable memories!
