We had a great tour with Youssef as our tour guide. The tour really gave us a great snapshot of LA! Youssef had great knowledge and was very friendly.

Summer revealed so many of LA's hidden gems in half a day - I never thought I would see so much in such a short time and walk away feeling like I had a good sense of the real LA and yet it never felt rushed. Summer showed us everything from Hollywood Blvd to the LA Farmers Market - and... More

Thiel gave a great tour. He was fun and easy to talk to. The tour itself allowed me to experience places in Hollywood I never would have known to checkout.

We had a great urban adventure today. Vicki was tremendous. So much better seeing the city on foot and through public transportation than on a tour bus. We only had one day to see LA, and this was the perfect way to pack a lot into a short time.

I have been on many food tours (I try to go on at least one each trip), and this tour was by far the worst one I have experienced. To start, while our tour guide seemed like a nice person, she lacked enthusiasm overall and even lacked knowledge of the area. While other tour guides I have toured with in... More

Vicky from Urban Adventures really has an outstanding knowledge of the Los Angeles region and made me feel very comfortable all day. Her extensive knowledge of the history of Hollywood was impressive! We also meet up with a guy at a community run vegetable garden where we were able to sample some of the produce, the farmers market was a... More

What a great way to find out some of the history of Hollywood and to revisit days of old. Otneil was a fantastic tour guide. We felt very comfortable in his company and as we were a small group of three, he went over and above his call of duty to show us a few extra things along the way.... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
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 partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
