OK, so here’s the deal with the TMZ tour. My wife and I went yesterday, we live in the southern California area and watch TMZ all the time. If you’re from out of town and don’t know anything about Hollywood, this tour is for you. The mini bus is comfortable, the tour guide is entertaining, and you get to see a lot of Hollywood without having to deal with the stress of the traffic. We didn’t see any celebrities, but the tour guide talks about all the stars they have previously encountered on the tour. Many things get left out about Hollywood history. They pass right by the Roxy, the Rainbow, the Whisky and the Roosevelt hotel without saying a word. This tour is all about celebrity gossip and TMZ stories from the TV show. If you’ve previously driven down Sunset, Hollywood Blvd, Gower, Franklin, Melrose or Rodeo Drive, you could easily research online where these places are located (Boa, Mr. Chow, Sierra Towers, Chateau Marmont), and where occurrences happened (what liquor store Halle Berry crashed her car into, where Hugh Grant got arrested with Divine Brown or where Paris Hilton’s sex tape was shot), put $20 in your gas tank and find them yourself.
