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.

To be honest, I read all the reviews before booking and thought "Who is this Trish woman and how can she be THAT great?!!" Well, Trish is real and she will be your tour guide and she will be THAT great! I booked this trip for my 21 year old son and myself (on his birthday!) and we had a... More

Our family was lucky enough to have Trish to ourselves for an afternoon, and she showed us an awesome time! From moment one, she was very warm and welcoming. She did a great job keeping us adults entertained, while also catering to our two 11-year-old daughters (and if you have preteens, you know they can be hard to impress). She... More

Our family of four was in Southern California to celebrate our daughter's 21st birthday.

Trish was prompt, communicative and excited to share her understanding of Los Angeles with us. She made certain to begin by asking if there were specific requests in the group and managed to work everyone’s needs into the tour. It was as structured as it needed to be to meet all of the time obligations, but flexible enough for fun... More

I've been on a few food tours of the area now, and this is the best one I've been on by far. The food was really, really good at each stop and it's combined with a driving/walking tour that is excellent.

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.
