We were so excited to join Philip on his walking tour of Old Hollywood. We even changed our schedule so we could tour with him the day before the Oscars. It was a mile walk easily managed by most folks. It's amazing to see how most of the old studios got their start so close together. I am an Old Hollywood buff and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Philip takes time to explain the sites and has a scrapbook containing photos so you can see how things were at the turn of the last century compared to today. I think even the locals would enjoy this different view of Hollywood. Highly recommend "Felix"

This tour is perfect for film buffs, history buffs or anyone looking for an entertaining way to spend an afternoon in Hollywood. Felix takes you on a magical mystery tour. What he is taking you by, talking about, isn't really there in the form it used to be, in the eras he is describing, but he makes it seem so alive and glamourous. I took a group of students and we were all transported.
(Follow all the guidelines he gives on the website.)

Philip Mershon, aka Felix, is a passionate historian of Hollywood, from its founding to the current day. This is a small (approx. 8 people) walking tour of a 1/2 mile stretch on Sunset and Vine. Philip provides fascinating information about the founding of the major studios, radio networks, tv networks and record companies. You could drive down this street forever and not know what went on behind the walls! In fact, half of our group was from Los Angeles!
