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.

we took the sites and bites tour and just loved it. Trish is a fantastic tour guide, very accommodating and knowledgeable. The tour groups are small (we had 7 people) which makes it much more enjoyable as you can hear everything she says and makes it much more personable. It was a great combination of seeing the traditional "tourist" Hollywood... More

My girlfriend and I recently visited the LA area and elected to sign up for this tour. We were absolutely blown away by how knowledgeable Trish and Matt both were. We got to see the parts of Hollywood that we only knew of from the movies. Thanks so much for such a fantastic afternoon. I highly recommend this to anyone,... More

We had a fantastic tour with Trish. She had her new ride and it was very comfortable. She is so energetic and seems sincerely happy to be giving the tour. Trish is a wealth of knowledge but it is presented in more of a conversational method than a script. It is like spending 4 hours or so with a close... More

I enjoyed the cemetery and all the eating adventures were great. The ice cream was interesting but now my favorite. I would rather taste gelato, frozen yogert and more rich choices of ice cream. Maybe you could change out an Asian experience or add it.

We decided to do this tour because the other tours were mainly walking tours. We had our elderly mother with us and too much walking would not make her tour enjoyable.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood 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.
