  • 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!

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 L.A. 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 L.A. – 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!
