Discover the highlights of Los Angeles and Hollywood on this small-group tour. Leave the navigation to a driver as you visit Walt Disney Concert Hall, Mulholland Drive, the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Sunset Boulevard, celebrity homes in Beverly Hills, and more. Your tour wraps up after a meal (own expense) at the Original Farmers Market. Pickup from downtown LA hotels and a choice of departure times means extra convenience.
  • See the highlights of Los Angeles and Hollywood with a guide and small group
  • Learn about the grand old movie theaters in the Broadway Theater District
  • Have free time to stroll along the Hollywood Walk of Fame
  • Drive past celebrity-owned mansions in Beverly Hills and Bel Air
What to Expect
After morning or evening pickup from your centrally located hotel in downtown Los Angeles, start your comprehensive LA tour with a drive through downtown. Pass by landmarks such as L.A. Live, the Grammy Museum, and historic Olvera Street—considered the birthplace of Los Angeles. Stop for photos on at the Hollywood sign on Mulholland Drive, and have 45 minutes free to take in Grauman's Chinese Theatre, Dolby Theatre, and the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Next head down Sunset Boulevard, and drive past celebrity homes in Beverly Hills, Holmby Hills, and Bel Air. Stop for a bite (at your own expense) at the Original Farmers Market and The Grove, then cruise by Paramount Pictures before your tour ends with drop-off at your downtown hotel. Choose to schedule your tour in the morning or evening, which allows ample time for other activities before or after your tour.

We did this half-day tour in early December of 2019. This is a great tour to sightsee the major attractions in downtown LA, as well as to learn the history and culture from the tour guide, Doug, who grew up in LA. Great experience!
