Full description
See iconic locations from your favorite films and television shows on this guided hike that takes you above Los Angeles. Start your tour at Franklin's Cafe and Market in Los Feliz, a neighborhood that’s home to celebrities and hopefuls.

On this 2-hour tour you’ll pass the Greek Theater before heading off the paved road and into the LA wilderness. Take a short, steep path that rewards with stunning views of the city in all directions.

During the half-hour hike you’ll ascend the equivalent of 12 flights of stairs at a leisurely pace, making frequent stops to admire the views and hear about the history of this place.

As you approach the Griffith Observatory, the iconic Hollywood sign will come into view and provide a spectacular backdrop for your photos!

The Griffith Observatory is an Art Deco masterpiece that is considered the hood ornament of Los Angeles. After the tour you have the option of entering the building (free of charge) or to take the short hike back with your guide.
