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

On the Ethnic Neighborhoods Food Tour, we trekked around with Brooke in the lead. She was informative, enthusiastic, and engaging. Yay Brooke! Fun that we were the only two 'true' tourists (i.e. from out of town), while everyone else was exploring their own city... what a great trend. The city bus was a necessary component to get from A to... More

Our urban tour guide, Summer, knows L.A. like the back of her hand. She showed us so much in one afternoon, it was quite unbelievable how much ground we covered. I can highly recommend the tour with farmers market, with Summer as your guide. 5 stars! #localsknow

I recently took part in the LA Getaway tour with Summer and enjoyed it so much! There was also a trainee guide named Vicky who joined us, and I'm sure she too will make an excellent guide! Both ladies engaged with the group and shared their own knowledge and experience of different places around the city which was really interesting... More

We enjoyed our tour of LA's Korea town, Little Armenia and Thai town. Although we are LA natives, we rarely venture out of our area to eat. Brooke was our guide and she was great at highlighting the historic buildings and giving us a snapshot of how the different ethnic neighborhoods came into being. We look forward to using Urban...

Summer, (our guide) planned this without a fault. We toured round the community garden where Vlad showed us round and given us some fruits to sample. We used local buses and went to see a Doritos exhibition at a not-for-profit museum. We visited where the oscars are held every year, the Farmers market... By all this is a good tour... More

My partner and I planned an Urban Adventure Ethnic Neighborhood Food Tour for our 1 year anniversary. We loved it!!! Not only was the tour excellent (through Thai Town, Little Armenia and Koreatown), we were fortunate enough to have Brooke as our tour guide. Not only was Brooke informative and approachable, she had an array of locations and foods for... More

I went with a group of friends and absolutely loved it! We are all L.A. locals and had been to Hollywood Blvd many times. It's incredible how many times we had walked by these places and never knew a thing about them. Sabrina was a great guide, she was very friendly and we felt very comfortable with her. I definitely...

Summer showed us the hidden gems of LA during our full day tour. The highlight for me was the community garden when. Vlad gave us a personal tour and had us try fruits and herbs right off the plant. We saw so many things that day that my sister, an LA resident, had never even been exposed to. This tour... 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.
