Hollywood is the center of celebrity fame and history. It also carries a rich tradition in food and trendy culinary cuisine. We blend all of this history, tradition, fame, and cuisine into one TOURific experience, our Hollywood Sites & Bites tour. We'll see most of Hollywood's famous landmarks, talk about Hollywood history, and stop at some of the best (some hidden gems) restaurants where all of our Hollywood friends like to eat! The food is fabulous, the history is awesome, and we promise you won't leave hungry or lacking in Hollywood knowledge! We also offer a Celebrity Insider Movie Locations tour that showcases famous filming sites in Beverly Hills, Century City and Hollywood. You'll be in the company of a leading Entertainment Journalist who will share the inside scoop on all the big stars and the movies they make. Our seasonal, specialty Chocolate Indulgence tour takes you where the locals like to buy their chocolates. All tours are in the comfort of a customized, fully-air conditioned mini-van with surround sound! Group size is maximum 7 guests for a truly personalized experience. We are happy to offer any of these tours for your private group of family or friends. Please use discount code "tripadvisor" when booking and you'll receive $15 off each ticket.

This was our first time to Hollywood and I am so glad I found this tour. At first when I mentioned tour to my family they were like "No, way we are not going on one of those big tour buses." I promised them it wouldn't be like that and Trish delivered. Our family of four learned about the history... More

Trish of Tourific Escapes was so nice and professional! She walked us around giving us historical details about hotels, theaters, stars, people behind the scenes and then drove us to 5 Out-Of-This-World restaurants with rich history and foods of Hollywood. Try this tour!

My daughter and I took the Hollywood site and bites tour with Trisha and had a fantastic time and discovered local cuisine we wouldn't have found on our own! She is a wealth of knowledge and happy to have questions. The van felt like a new vehicle, very clean and comfortable. Highly recommend this tour and Trisha!

We were a group of 5 for the Sites & Bites food tour & had the most amazing time!! Because our tour guide Trish was so good at making people feel comfortable, it felt more like a group of friends going on a fun excursion than a tour with strangers! While we did the traditional "Hollywood" sites, my favorite part... 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.
