Hollywood Walk of Fame (1-hour stop)

In our opinion, forty-five minutes in downtown Hollywood on the Hollywood walk of fame is PLENTY of time. We give you 1 hour so that you don’t feel rushed. This allows ample time to walk the walk of fame, mosey through the courtyard of the Chinese Theater, go to the lookout point and take photos of the Hollywood Sign, and see all of the hand and foot prints of past and present movie stars. You will also have time to walk by the Dolby Theater, Capital Records, The Roosevelt Hotel, buy some souvenirs, see the Hollywood wackos, etc.

The Hollywood Sign (Multiple Views Available)

Hollywood sign photos are a must-have. Whether it’s from the viewpoint on Hollywood Boulevard or the majestic views cruising Mulholland Drive in the Hollywood Hills, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to scratch this off your list. Learn about the history of the Hollywood Sign and make sure to capture LaLa Land’s iconic landmark from way up high and down below!

Rodeo Drive (30-minutes stop)

As you’re cruising through Beverly Hills you will enjoy our 30 minute stop at Rodeo Drive, one of the premier fashion districts in all of the world. Featuring stores such as Fendi, Gucci, Prada, Valentino, Farragano, Cartier, Bijan, and much more, Rodeo Drive is an LA hot spot. Walk the streets made famous in the movie Pretty Woman, and take photos at the Pretty Woman hotel. Keep an eye out for celebrities! *For those interested, we provide complimentary Rodeo Drive drop-off at the end of the tour if you’d like more time for shopping.

The Original Farmer's Market (1-hour lunch stop)

In our opinion, forty-five minutes in downtown Hollywood on the Hollywood walk of fame is PLENTY of time. We give you 1 hour so that you don’t feel rushed. This allows ample time to walk the walk of fame, mosey through the courtyard of the Chinese Theater, go to the lookout point and take photos of the Hollywood Sign, and see all of the hand and foot prints of past and present movie stars. You will also have time to walk by the Dolby Theater, Capital Records, The Roosevelt Hotel, buy some souvenirs, see the Hollywood wackos, etc.

We did 5 1/2 LA Tour and had a great experience. It was nice getting picked up at our hotel and taken to all the tourist spots and not having to worry about driving or finding parking.
