A Tour of Los Angeles
Like any good tour of Los Angeles should, ours starts with a visit to the Hollywood Sign itself. And don’t worry, you don’t have to settle for faraway pictures where the sign is barely visible. We get you as close as possible to it so you can get the best photos. You might think that seeing such a landmark would be the highlight of the tour, but this is only the beginning.
The tour continues with a drive through Mulholland Drive, the legendary street that traverses through Hollywood Hills all the way to the coast. We stop at its most famous Overlook for you to get your pictures with the Los Angeles skyline and enjoy one of the best views of the city. During the drive, you will be able to gaze upon some of the most famous homes designed by modernist architects John Lautner, such as the Chemosphere House and the Garcia House. Then traverse through Laurel Canyon Blvd. and see the beautiful Houdini Estate.
The city of West Hollywood boasts some of the most famous night clubs in Los Angeles, as well as a few of the best-known celebrity hideaways, such as the Chateau Marmont. You will be able to spot legendary music venues such as The Troubadour, the Whiskey a Go Go, and The Roxy Theater, among many others. And be sure to keep your eyes open to admire the beautiful homes and buildings in the style and nightlife beacon of the city.
Renowned across the world as a signpost of wealth and status, Beverly Hills has more than just pretty houses behind discretion hedges for you to look at. The Greystone Mansion, which you might recognize from movies such as X-Men or Spiderman, is a beautiful estate that you can visit and explore. You will also be able to view the mansion where Michael Jackson passed away, the legendary Playboy Mansion, and a few other iconic celebrity homes in the area. Of course, a visit to Beverly Hills would not be complete without driving through Rodeo Drive, the shopping district for the rich and famous, and the famous Beverly Hills sign and fountain.
End your tour in the very crib of the American film industry. Visit the landmark Chinese Theater, site of countless movie scenes and premieres, the Dolby Theater, home to the Academy Awards, and the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the star-lined sidewalks of Hollywood where all of the greats of entertainment have been honored since 1957. Our itinerary is designed to grant you the best possible look at all of the city’s highlights.
