Hollywood is the center of celebrity fame and history. It also carries a rich tradition in food and trendy culinary cuisine. We blend all of this history, tradition, fame, and cuisine into one TOURific experience, our Hollywood Sites & Bites tour. We'll see most of Hollywood's famous landmarks, talk about Hollywood history, and stop at some of the best (some hidden gems) restaurants where all of our Hollywood friends like to eat! The food is fabulous, the history is awesome, and we promise you won't leave hungry or lacking in Hollywood knowledge! We also offer a Celebrity Insider Movie Locations tour that showcases famous filming sites in Beverly Hills, Century City and Hollywood. You'll be in the company of a leading Entertainment Journalist who will share the inside scoop on all the big stars and the movies they make. Our seasonal, specialty Chocolate Indulgence tour takes you where the locals like to buy their chocolates. All tours are in the comfort of a customized, fully-air conditioned mini-van with surround sound! Group size is maximum 7 guests for a truly personalized experience. We are happy to offer any of these tours for your private group of family or friends. Please use discount code "tripadvisor" when booking and you'll receive $15 off each ticket.

Our guide, Sandro, was so much fun, and knew everything about Hollywood, past and present. Just a delight! Trish, our driver, was fearless and skilled in L.A. Traffic! This was just a wonderful tour from start to finish, and we have been on many. It was obvious that Sandro loves the movies and all that surrounds the industry. That made... More

My husband and I recently took this tour and we can sincerely give it our highest recommendation. Speaking of sincere, it's an apt word to use to describe our guide, Trish. She is sincere in her desire for her clients to have a fun, comfortable, and interesting experience. The food was great, but what I loved the most were all... More

The main purpose of our recent trip to Los Angeles was to visit with longtime friends. On our last trip they highly recommended Trish's "Sites and Bites" tour which we took and extended to include an afternoon trip to Santa Monica, Venice and dinner. It was an amazing day from start to finish. This time around we were accompanied by... More

Trish was the perfect tour guide. She provided a well-rounded historical account of the area (just enough factual information to be interesting without overwhelming us); made sure all of the people in our group were comfortable; made sure everyone could hear her clearly; and made it a point to follow through on answering all of our questions. She was easygoing,... More

Trish gave a great tour today. It was an excellent way to get an overview of LA and see some of the highlights while at the same time have wonderful food tastings - I particularly liked the food from Grub and of course the chocolates. Thanks Trish for a very enjoyable day.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
