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.

Don't look any longer. Call Trish and Matt and get on their schedule. Sites are awesome and the Bites are delicious. We didn't need to eat dinner after our time with Trish. Call. Call them now so you aren't mad about not getting their top notch tour with a personal touch!

This tour was great and exceeded our expectations. Our host Trish was very knowledgeable and so fun to be with. And the small group size was a bonus because the host was able to quickly get a sense of our interests and share information accordingly. Never tacky, always tasteful! And speaking of tasteful, the food tastings "the bites", were perfect... More

It will be so fun to share the new information i learned from Trish on this wonderful tour of Hollywood. We all had so much fun and enjoyed all the food tastings. Driving around in her very nice van. Trish was overly kind and sweet. She didn't hesitate to do all possible to make our tour a trip to remember.

I was apprehensive about taking a tour. I'm fundamentally opposed to the intrusiveness of the paparazzi that many of the tout sold street tours seem to be based on. This was a different experience altogether. My niece was in town and i wanted to give her a feel for LA, and the movie industry, celebs and locations. From going out... More

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.
