It was not really worth a time spent, just ok. So one should go only if it is most attractive for them. I will definitely not going again....

Do not pre book those 45 minute to 1 hour tours, as nearly every brochure has a price of somewhere between $45 to $50 per person. If you walk along the strip where all the stars are on the Walk of Fame, you will get tons of offers from all of these operators, and find that they drop their price, because of the competition, we were able to go for only $15 per person, and others got it for $10. Besides that, they ALL take you up Mulholland Drive to a spot that is supposed to be good to take a photo of the Hollywood sign, but that spot is terrible for a couple of reasons. 1 It is too far to get a good shot, unless you zoom the heck out of your camera, which means you can’t have a proper photo with your family in the foreground. The second reason is that being far away, when you add the smog that is almost always there, its terrible. There is a great view apparently from the Famous Chinese theatre right there near the Walk of Fame, but that was closed for us as they were doing repairs. There is also a great spot about 50 metres or so to the right of the theatre as you look at it. It is a shopping mall with a wide circular courtyard in the middle – you can’t miss it - . There is a balcony section a couple of levels up, which is visible from the bottom of the courtyard, just go up there at click your cameras with the best shots.

The hype over HWOF is widely overrated. Just a street full of bums, people selling crap and lousy souvenir stores...

You have heard about it all your life, so it is a must see. Kind of a let down, not very clean or well kept. It was fun walking down the street looking for our favorites and watching at all the crazies hustling on the street. Good way to spend a hour and get it off your bucket list.

Went there just to check it out but got there early before most of the tourists arrived so felt a bit unsafe for a while. Lots of beggars and people trying to sell you tours. Some good souviner shops though so spent some time shopping. Stars themselves were really quite old and some were dirty and cracked. A lot of stars I didn't even know from the very early days of film. Took a while before I found a star of anybody I knew to photograph. Didn't walk the whole area as we were short on time. What we did see was enough. Definately not the glitzy scene you see on tv and in photos. Rather disappointing but worth visiting to say you've seen it.
