Full description

See Hollywood’s highlights for yourself on a guided sightseeing tour from the comfort of an open-top bus. Marvel at iconic locations such as the Hollywood Sign, where you can stop for a photo and admire the views of downtown LA.

Make your way to the local partner’s office to begin your activity. Board the sightseeing bus, and away you’ll go on your tour of Hollywood. 

Pass the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Chinese Theatre, the Art Deco entertainment complex of the Dolby Theater, and the circular Capitol Records Building and other historic sights you’ve seen 1000 times on TV. 

Next, head to the Hollywood and Vine district at the intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street. 

Cruise down Sunset Boulevard, passing famous bars and nightclubs like Whiskey A-Go-Go and the Viper Room. Admire the Chateau Marmont Hotel, where Tim Burton, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and other legends have stayed.

Then, drive past the upscale stores on Rodeo Drive as you head towards Beverly Hills. Take a photo of the Beverly Hills Sign and the Beverly Hills Hotel, plus see the homes of Tom Cruise, Leonardo DiCaprio, Elvis Presley, and many more.

Be dropped off at your Hollywood, West Hollywood, or Beverly Hills hotel at the end of your activity. If you’re staying outside of these areas, you’ll be dropped back at the local partner’s office.

The bus part of the tour was great! We weren’t sure if we wanted to do a tour like this but were very glad we did! The guide had lots of knowledge on the area! I would not recommend getting out on Hollywood Blvd to walk and see the stars. It’s disgusting and filthy. The entire walk was homeless druggies and it scared my 15 and 9 yr old kids. It literally smelled like urine the entire walk.

I think it’s a great activity for the first time visitors to LA, you get a taste of Hollywood within two hours and price isn’t too bad either. Our guide was Nick grant, very nice and helpful, had fun anecdotes about celebrities and movies that were filmed in the area.

The tour started in the not quite open car, which was shown here as an example. In the middle of a 3-seater bench, it was also rather difficult to see and photograph everything. Luckily I had my family with me who took the photos for me. Our driver was good, knowledgeable and showed us the most famous houses. She also stopped at the most beautiful vantage points so that you could take photos there.
