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.

I thoroughly enjoyed this tour, it was so well thought out and the food was excellent. Although I have lived in L.A. my whole life, I rarely get to Hollywood so it was nice to learn about Hollywood in comfort and with plenty of good food. I would recommend this tour to people who live both in LA and out... More

Trish was a wonderfully knowledgeable and warm guide who gave our family a great introduction to the Hollywood area. We've done many food tours from NY to London to Paris, and Trish has created a well paced tour with enough food and local sites to keep it interesting for the full 3 hours. Highly recommended.

Wonderful tour, Matt was great about first explaining about the tour when we called on the phone. And Trish was such a nice, friendly and helpful tour guide. She showed us so many of the interesting Hollywood sites and the different Holly wood food stops were all so delicious. We enjoyed it so much. Ray and Sue Truelson

We were planning a pleasure trip to Los Angelos and and wanted to book a food tour.

Trish is lovely and very helpful and the tastings were good fun particularly the pastrami sandwich which was excellent. It is fairly rushed as Trish was running another tour in the afternoon. In hindsight if this is the only tour you are doing in LA, maybe a different type of tour would be better.

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.
