Griffith Park is California's 2nd largest park, so we're excited to take you on one of the best Los Angeles tours out there! Our team of CPR/First Aid certified guides are photographers, entertainers, history buffs, and (most importantly) professionals. Hike Griffith Park with us to discover the Hollywood Sign and tour Griffith Observatory as we regale you with how Hollywood became the entertainment capital of the world.


Hollywood Sign – Griffith Park Observatory – Greek Theatre – Mount Hollywood – Downtown LA – Famous Film Locations – Forest Lawn Mausoleum – LA River – Century City – Silverlake – Hollywood History and so much more

*(Observatory is closed Mondays)

  • Choose a daytime or sunset hike to fit your schedule
  • Learn insider info on the sights you can see from the highest point in the hills
  • Included bottled water allows you to travel light
What to Expect
Lace up your hiking boots and meet your guide at the Greek Theatre’s box office in Griffith Park 15 minutes before your hike’s departure time. Day and sunset hikes are available; choose your preferred time of day when booking. With your guide in the lead, take in the scenery and leave the navigating and logistics to the expert. As you get higher up into the hills, stop periodically to learn about movies and shows that have been filmed on the exact spots where you stand. Your guide will provide interactive videos showing you how and where certain scenes have been shot. At the top of the highest point in the hills, stop to catch your breath and enjoy the scenery while your guide points out the sights around you. Follow your guide to a vista point that makes the perfect selfie spot with the iconic Hollywood sign in the background. You will also get the chance to visit and tour the Griffith Park Observatory.

Yes, there's such a rich and wild history about Griffith Park, that it's almost hard to believe you're learning as you take in those amazing views. Thanks for exploring with us, we're glad you had a great time!

Great experience - def worth doing - even if it’s hot. Kate was a thoughtful, informative guide, who never rushed us. Plenty of photo opportunities. Liked the stories about Mr Griffith!

Mr. Griffith is quite the character! There's so much history to the park that you would never know about if you didn't hike with a guide like Kate! We'll pass along your kind words to her. Thanks for leaving such a nice review!

No rest room along the way... they take you before you start. It’s about an hour in a half going up hike.

And yes Uber/Lyft is very easy. How much time depends on the time of day since it might take more time when people go to work and leave work.
