Best advice-sit on the left. Most sites of The Tragical History Tour are on the left. Awesome tour, just wish I would've been sitting left.

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

Hi Guys, do you visit the Forest Lawn cemetery as I was hoping to visit some of the graves & also do you visit Viper Room, Whisky a go go or Rainbow bar & grill? I'm looking to do a bit of Rock 'n' Roll pilgrimage on my trip to LA & only have 2 days before we leave on the rest of our tour. Thank you.
