“A different kind of Hollywood tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

We live in Los Angeles, but took two friends with us on this 2 hour tour of Hollywood, Beverly Hills and the Sunset Strip. What a great tour guide Sandro is!! He knows soooo much behind the scenes info on celebrities. I drive by a lot of these locations on a regular basis but had no idea they were used in movies or tv shows. Our out of town guests loved it as well as us natives! This is a hidden gem tour. Great!

“Step on Guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

I am an executive director for a trade association and meeting planner as well as a owner/travel agent. I wanted to have a step on guide for my group to do a 2 hour tour before they went on to their last event.

I spoke with Matt Rubenstein who was very helpful. He explained that they had a new Celebrity Insider Movie Locations Tour of Hollywood and Beverly Hills which was directed by a journalist to the stars, SANDRO MONETTI.

He arranged a customized 2 hour tour for us to go around our schedule and included a short stop at the Highland and Hollywood. He arrived promptly and delivered us to our last destination right on time. He has a bubbly personality and very likeable. Everyone enjoyed his wit and little stories of his encounters with the stars. He did a great job with the amount of people that we had on the bus (55). However, I think it would've been much more enjoyable had we only had 20 people which is what they recommend. The bus was a little large for him to reach all in the back even though he had a mic.

All in all, I think that the group enjoyed the tour around Hollywood. It was a great way to see all the excitement of Hollywood for those that don't have much time in the area.

“Wonderful Sites & Bites Tour in Hollywood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

We only had one day to spend in Los Angeles after disembarking a 14 day Panama Canal Cruise and decided to try something different for the day. We selected the Sites & Bites Tour and were so glad we did. Trish & Matt were like long lost friends from the time they picked us up at the hotel. They are both very outgoing and friendly. Trish is your very knowledgeable guide & Matt the driver, but they work as a team to see everything moves along smoothly and timely. We were eating nearly constantly, or so it seemed, as we toured the famous landmarks of Hollywood. We enjoyed all the quaint eateries, which were all mom & pop type establishments. Everything we ate was yummy! We've only been home for three weeks, but have eaten all our fudge purchased at John Kelly Chocolates & already ordered more via the internet. We thank Trish & Matt for an unforgettable experience.

“Forget disapppointing stock tours and have a personalized, fun adventure with 6 restaurants mixed in to make 4 hours fly by!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Trish is what makes this the best rated tour. She has a great way of connecting with each person and works hard at packing in a ton of interesting stories and sights while including fun places to eat unique food at 6 different restaurants. Trish is very accommodating for extra time to take pictures and to take them of you if needed to get everyone in the picture. Award winning chocolates, delicious 'street' specialties, and her friendship wirh each restaurant owner are just a few of the treats in store for you. We couldn't believe hiw fast four hours flew by. THANKS TRISH!!!
