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.

Loved the Sites and Bites tour. Trish was extremely friendly and very accommodating with my wife who has Parkinson's Disease and relies on a cane. We enjoyed all the dining sites and the food was excellent. We hated leaving several because it would have been good to complete a full meal there.

Dear SgtBuffy, Thank you for your continued support of our Sites & Bites Tours! It was awesome that you organized a private tour for your friends who had gathered in LA for your reunion. It was such a pleasure to show everyone around Hollywood, and later the smaller group Santa Monica and Venice. Such a varied city we live in!... More

It was simply a great time. Trish combines the historic with the caloric and both are fully enjoyable. Why take one of those 'touristy' buses when you can get an in-depth account of Hollywood's past while stopping at various LA cuisine hotspots along the way. You will eat well. Our highlights included stops at Grub, Mozza, and Greenblatts. The tour... More

My partner and I booked our sites and bites tour off the back of tripadvisor reviews and we are glad we did. Our host Trish was very friendly and informative and really tried to get to know everybody. As the tour is limited to a small group of people the experience feels more personal and you have the opportunity to... More

Truth be told, I'm not one that normally takes a guided tour when I travel. The mere thought conjures up images of double-decker buses, cheap sunglasses, and the optional photo opportunity for an additional $39.99. However, on this trip to LA (having been there many dozens of times of times in my life), I thought it might be a welcome... More

We loved our trip with Trish! She has a wonderful van that comfortably fits 6 people.

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.
