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!
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.
The Real Hollywood Tour
$40 / pp
Free / child (0 - 11 y.o.)
An easy walking distance
10am - 12pm (2 hours)
On our Hollywood walking tour we go back in time to before that name for the area was even used, then we’ll tell you how and why the start-up film industry first moved to this small, sleepy 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 on the boulevard (such as the oldest house in Hollywood, where Charlie Chaplin’s kids went to school), as well as 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 (home of the annual Oscars) and the TCL Chinese Theater where our Real Hollywood tour ends. It's the perfect place to have lunch or get some great shots of the Hollywood Sign for Instagram.
Combine this tour with our Central Downtown LA tour by booking both tours for the same day. Then the guide will take you from Hollywood to downtown, with travel on the Los Angeles Metro included. That way you can experience and learn about the two most historic parts of the city on one easy six hour tour.
Our tours can sell out. If you can't 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.
