Tours to LA from Newport Beach

We are going to be in Newport Beach in October. We want to tour LA -- mainly the shopping and stars' homes.

Do you recommend we do a tour from Newport Beach to LA OR drive to LA and then get on a tour.

Also, which tour company would you recommend?

Thanks so much

I would recommend that you drive up to LA and then on Hollywood Blvd. you can find some places that can recommend tours...

To my knowledge, there are no tours of LA leaving from Newport.

There might be something leaving from the Disneyland area in Anaheim, but your best bet is to up to LA. I know there are a lot of people hawking tours at the corner of Hollywood Blvd and Highland, in front of the mall and Kodak Theater, but not sure what tour is best.

Starline Tours is in the courtyard of the Chinese Theater on Hollywood Bl, just west of the Highland Av:

Here are the tours that they offer which depart from the Chinese Theater: (Many leave at 9 a.m. so you'll have to drive up early from Newport -- especially, since there will be traffic unless it's the weekend).


or consider Hollywood Tours at 7095 Hollywood Bl (just west of the Chinese Theater). Verify the starting point of their tours by phoning them!!


For either of these companies, you can park in the parking structure for the Hollywood & Highland Center Mall which is on the northwest corner of Hollywood Bl & Highland Av (enter from Highland -- a left turn off of Highland, just north of Hollywood Bl).

For shopping, what kind of shopping are you looking for? Big malls, department stores, outlet stores, boutiques., souvenir shops. PLEASE BE SPECIFIC as far as what you are looking to buy since L.A. has 100s of shopping areas.

Good luck!
