Owner description: 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.

We took the TOURific escapes chocolate lovers tour of LA. It was GREAT!!! The tour bus was a smaller 12-seater so the group is the perfect size to ask questions and see everything. We had at least five different stops and sampled a wide variety of chocolates. We had gourmet artisan chocolates, triple chocolate cookies, unsweetened cacao, and even chocolate wine. At one stop we compared and learned about chocolate from around the world. The tasting included chocolate from several countries like Madagascar, Uganda and Ecuador. My favorite treat was the melted chocolate sandwich with whipped cream and bacon. The tour guides were wonderful and you can tell they have a passion for what they do. I would definitely recommend this tour. If I could give this tour another star I would.

We have lived in the Los Angeles area all our lives and toured the world extensively, but never "been a tourist" in our home areas. We decided it would be nice to view Hollywood through the eyes of visitors. Choose TOURific Escapes because their web site was the most interesting and offered a tour with a real 'English' accented person, who made the trip very interesting & enjoyable. We will take their other tours.

We went on the celebrity tour. Sandro, our guide, has a vast knowledge of Hollywood. He was able to answer all kinds of interesting questions about Hollywood, movie stars, locations and inside gossip. He was entertaining, knowledgeable and fun. This was our second tour with Tourific Escapes and the bus is very comfortable and temperature controlled. I would highly recommend this tour to people from out of town and also to locals. I think you will see new things about our city. Very enjoyable, thanks Touriffic, we will be back!

What an amazing and informative afternoon. The tour guide really knew his stuff! From Die Hard to Casablanca, to Argo, we got the full scoop on where it was shot and the behind the scenes stories about the entire process. The tour covered Hollywood to Beverly Hills and Century City. Almost every hotel, house and restaurant seemed to have a fascinating story behind it.
I highly recommend it!

Husband & wife, Trish & Matt, are the owners of TOURific Escapes. Their knowledge was amazing, great food from six different restaurants that you probably would never find on your own, and a very detailed informative tour for 4 1/2 hrs. on a lovely new front facing tour bus holding a maximum of ~14 (we had 8 on our tour due to the winter season, but more would not of been a problem).

We had taken an all day tour with another company earlier in the week that overlapped a little with the sights. The other tour company would just let us off to figure things out ourselves, but Trish had done a lot of research & went with us showing & telling us about everything. She even offered to take photos of us at different landmarks.

After the stops at six local tucked away restaurants you are absolutely FULL! My husband actually tried things that I thought he'd never try & enjoyed every bit.

We plan on doing this tour again on our next visit to LA! It's worth every penny & is the BEST tour in LA!

Thank you so much, Trish & Matt, for a great vacation memory!
