The Hollywood Celebrity Insider Movie LocationsTour with Sandro Monetti was just what I was looking for! Instead of the usual tour of celebrity homes (which I see as kind of an invasion of other people's privacy) this was a really neat and very informative tour of movie locations and LA sites that have to do with movie and entertainment production....

We recently went on TOURific Escapes "Hollywood Sites & Bites" Tour and could not have enjoyed it more. There are larger and older Hollywood tours available but this one was a perfect fit for us and far more personal than that offered by the others. Trish does a terrific job of planning the tour so that you get to see... More

The Hollywood Sites & Bites Tour was absolutely amazing. My girlfriend and I were looking for something to kick off our Hollywood vacation, and I'm sure glad we chose this tour.

Hi Chris, Thank you for this wonderful review of your time with us recently. We've put together what we think is a very comprehensive tour of Hollywood, from the walking portion to the driving portion to of course, the food tastings and so it is heartwarming when our guests recognize that effort. It was indeed awesome to have a surprise... More

We loved this tour. It was small and the tour guide Trish knew us all by name and it was very personal without the personalized tour price. The tour began at the Walk of Fame and was a walking tour for the first hour and then we got on a bus and not only toured via bus seeing the sights... More

I cannot recommend this tour more highly. The hostess Trish is extremely welcoming and helpful. The tour starts from the Walk of Fame. You are taken around Hollywood by the driver (we had La Monte driving who was also very friendly and good fun), whilst Trish gives out lots of interesting information about the area and the sights. We made... More
