Full description
Welcome to the most comprehensive city tour in Los Angeles! Begin your exciting adventure in the heart of Downtown. The first stop will be at the historic Olvera Street where one of the oldest churches in Los Angeles “The Plaza Church” is located. From there you will be transported back in time to explore the world famous Union Train Station which is known as the "Last of the Great Railway Stations." The route will continue through downtown, passing by Chinatown, the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Millennium Biltmore Hotel, the Civic Center, Broadway, and the city skyline. You will see the fashion district (which consists of over 1,000 stores), some film locations from famous Hollywood productions, and the Staples Center Arena before heading northwest toward Griffith Park. Griffith Park offers the best view of the city as well as the world famous Hollywood Sign; the views are simply breathtaking. The Hollywood Walk of Fame is the third major stop on this tour and is among the most popular stops in Los Angeles. The Hollywood Walk of Fame will give you the opportunity to walk among the “stars” that have made significant contributions to film, radio, television, theater, and the recording industries. The legendary Chinese theater located alongside the Hollywood Walk of Fame hosts movie premieres as well as other special events. You never know, you may be able to witness a red carpet premiere while there. After many attractions, you deserve a break. Next, you will stop at the historic Farmer's Market, which is one of the greatest places in Los Angeles to enjoy a variety of foods and beverages. "The Grove” which is located next to the Farmer's Market will not go unnoticed. You can take a ride on a historic 1950’s trolley and enjoy the features of a large center garden that includes an animated fountain with many shopping opportunities. Now that you've had time to relax and eat, you will be whisked off in the early afternoon to another world! From the Sunset Strip, you'll pass by iconic locations such as the Whisky a Go Go and the Chateau Marmont, before reaching Beverley Hills. While in Beverly Hills you will experience the charm of Rodeo Drive and may even feel like a star yourself. You'll soon see how varied and diverse this metropolis really is as you get an insight into what life is like once you've been discovered by the Hollywood Studios. Back on Sunset Boulevard heading west will bring you past the Getty Center. From there you will finally feel the breeze of the ocean. The Santa Monica Pier is a landmark of the city and has served for many backdrops in countless Hollywood films. Finally, round off a fascinating day with a nice walk along Venice Beach where you will be entertained by many different artists and showmen. “See and be seen” is the motto here. You will not be disappointed! With countless attractions in the most exciting city in the world, you will finally be brought back to your hotel or to a prearranged drop-off location by late afternoon. You won't sit on a big sightseeing bus on this tour. Capped at a maximum of 14 people, a familial atmosphere always develops during the tour. The tour makes frequent stops, allowing you to discover everything at a relaxed pace.

We really enjoyed the tour with Sandra and Dennis. Even beforehand, communication with Sandra was excellent. The pick-up at the agreed meeting point also worked without any problems. Dennis was super nice and constantly provided us with data and facts about the city. Of particular note was the interactive way Dennis included both images and videos. There was also a small guessing game during the journey. What was also particularly refreshing was the fact that the tour was in German, which was a welcome change compared to many other tours. We would unreservedly recommend the tour to anyone. Just great!

Very great tour! Dennis really informed us very well in the eight hours and gave us a lot of tips. Also, we made many stops with enough time! You can see all the major sights of Los Angeles! In between there was always free water. We can only recommend this tour to everyone. It's best to do it right at the beginning of your stay in LA so that you have enough time if you want to look at something again.

Everything is perfectly organized from booking to the end. Very personable, nice guide. The city tour was absolutely worth it and is highly recommended. It never got boring. We were entertained very well during the trips to the sights. Sufficient time at the stops was also planned. Not too much and not too little. Top.
