The tour was the perfect start to my stay in Hollywood. Our guide, Breeanna, led us to major points of interest such as the Walk of Fame, TCL Chinese, Dolby, El Capitane, and Egyptian Theaters. Along the way, Breeanna shared fascinating stories about people and events that transformed the city and the industry. Highly informative and definitely recommended.

Highly recommended

I had really a great time. This tour included a walk in the road of the stars, the Dolby Theatre where the Academy Award Ceremony takes place, the history of it and also the history of the Egyptian and the Chinese theatre. I was very interested to hear the history of the Hollywood Boulevard and history of the celebrities footprints at the front of the Chinese Theatre. At the time of visit the number of the stars were 2641!!!

It was great and very informative.

I enjoyed the walking tour very much and learned so much about the Hollywood history . I felt lucky that I was given the tour even though I was the only one-it was my own private tour !! Now how often does that happen ? I would recommend this tour as one of the top things to do in the area - much better than just wandering on your .
