The beauty in the architecture and the masses of people can be overwhelming. The people dressed up in costume come around you asking for pictures just to overcharge you is annoying but they I guess have to make a living.

Our guide, Sarah, was great. She had a lot of information to share about the history, the decor, the costumes, and the handprints. It’s amazing how tiny some of the handprints are. I am going back to watch a movie on their IMAX format. That’s...More

We visited TCL Chinese Theatre in October and paid for the VIP tour, which quite frankly was not really worth the money. It was quite short and had minimal content. When we exited, I noticed the new film Gemini man was playing there and we...More

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

You can pay $3 for two hours if you get a validation from a store in the Hollywood Highland center. This site does not allow me to post a link. If you google Hollywood Highland parking, you will get more details. Have fun.

Agree with the other reviewers, the best value option is to get to see the inside by seeing a movie. The handprints you can do it yourself (no tour needed).
