Great tour! The host was so friendly and knowledgeable — he wasn't just going to landmarks and reciting something he'd read on Wikipedia, he knew detailed history and lots of cool stories for each location (ask about why Carroll Burnett's star is placed where it is!). We walked at a relaxed pace, but still hit up lots of different stops and learned a lot. And as a bonus, we saw Drew Barrymore filming for her show at the Chinese Theater at the very end of our tour! While you aren't guaranteed to see a celebrity or film set on the tour like we did — chalk it up to random luck — you are guaranteed to hear some really interesting facts and anecdotes about Hollywood history from someone who clearly knows their stuff and has a great affinity for the industry.

As you'll quickly realize walking around Hollywood, there are a LOT of tours to choose from and I really feel like we lucked out in choosing the best possible option with this tour. Our guide Chris was incredibly knowledgeable and fun to talk to. He had a wealth of information, interesting stories, and gave us some great recommendations for places to check out while we were in town. I'm so glad we did this tour as one of our first activities in town, it gave us lots of context and stories to relate to as we explored more on our own. We hit all the major touristy spots you want to see, but also get some fun information and sites a little off the beaten path. Highly recommend, this was truly a highlight of our trip!

I love walking tours and I was looking forward to picking up some Hollywood trivia but I had concerns my family would be bored--NOT THE CASE. My twelve year old that cares nothing about stuff like this was enthralled by Vicky (our guide) and everything was super interesting. Despite being a walking tour it isn't bad at all and I have absolutely no regrets.

We did this tour along with the Real Downtown LA in the same day. Out guide Sonya was very friendly and answered all our questions along the way. It is much better to do walking tour like this than the scam tours they sell on Hollywood Blvd. Highly recommended.

Took the 2-hour walking tour with our family, including four kids 9-16 years old. Tour was fun and informative, and our guide, Vicky, was a delight! We had a great time learning about Hollywood landmarks old and new. Highly recommend this tour if you're visiting LA!

One might say “in Los Angeles the car is king, what would walking tours contribute?”

The answer is “quite a lot.”

My wife and I took The Real Hollywood Tour in the morning followed by The Central Downtown LA Tour in the afternoon. The sights were certainly interesting (I will not elaborate on all we saw), but the real highlights were the knowledge and good humor of our guides (Damien for Hollywood and Stuart for Downtown). Both are originally from the United Kingdom, but my wife and I saw no problem in this, they knew their adopted city very well and often non-natives are especially sensitive to a place’s particularities.

I recommend doing both tours on the same day. I found this a very efficient use of time and energy. After the morning tour Damien brought us downtown on the subway and handed us to Stuart. Before the beginning of the second tour my wife and I had lunch at the marvelous central market where all the food stands are independent family-type establishments, no chain restaurant in sight.

Is doing two walking tours in the same day too tiring? Not at all. Remember, you are not constantly walking, there are plenty of pauses for explanations and questions. I’m 66, in average shape, and had no problem at all.

We certainly learned much more from these walking tours than we would have learned from wandering on our own with a guide book or from a drone-like bus tour.

Wonderful walking tour. Our guide was so knowledgeable. The early morning tour was perfect as the streets were not crowded yet. Learned so much history of Hollywood and loved the hidden sights we would have missed just touring on our own. Highly recommend.

I booked this tour for my group of girl friends! We have all lived in LA for many years, visited hollywood many times. Yet, we didn't know anything about the history and beginnings of Hollywood. This tour definitely beat our expectations. Our tour guide, Vicky, was very knowledgeable and enthralled us with intriguing anecdotes and fun facts. I will recommend this tour to anyone visiting Hollywood boulevard as your experience is incomplete without the context that this tour provides.

Knowledgeable and fun guide. I grew up in LA, but it was interesting to learn about the early history of Hollywood. Easy pace and great recommendations along the way.

This guy(Stuart) knew his stuff, both old and new. He shows you some really cool secret spots in Hollywood along with the must see tourist spots. Disappointed we were leaving that day and could not further enjoy those secret spots. I would recommend doing this tour at the BEGINNING of your stay. It sets a good footprint for the rest of your Hollywood visit. There are some good points for young children, but geared more for teens/ adults.
