My tour guide was excellent. I chose this tour because it skipped all the stuff I could see myself - the walk of fame, the sign, etc. Instead it focused on the history of Hollywood. Why did Hollywood become Hollywood? How did the studios start?...More

My husband and I met up with Felix and did a walking tour of the Sunset & Vine area. We learned so much interesting history regarding the area. It was like a walk back in time. Felix is very knowledgable, friendly & humorous.

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
