Small-Group Tour of Los Angeles from Long Beach

Small-Group Los Angeles Day Trip from Long Beach

After morning pickup from your Long Beach hotel, travel in a luxury Mercedes Benz coach about 25 miles north toward Los Angeles. On the way, see the twin ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles, one of the largest ports in the US.

Make your way to downtown Los Angeles and stop for 15 minutes at the Los Angeles Coliseum, a popular location for concerts and sporting events. Continue to the Walt Disney Concert Hall, a distinctive stainless steel building designed by Frank Gehry that’s home to the Los Angeles Philharmonic.

Check out Angels Flight, a funicular railway that goes up Bunker Hill and holds the title of being the world's shortest railway. Then head to Olvera Street, the oldest area of downtown Los Angeles. Have your camera ready to capture photos of locations from various blockbuster films including King Kong, Independence Day and Armageddon.

Head up Mt Lee to the iconic Hollywood Sign perched high above Los Angeles. You'll be able to get plenty of pictures of this world-famous landmark during your 20-minute stop. Next, go down into Hollywood itself, where you'll have 40 minutes to explore. Find tributes to your favorite stars in the TCL Chinese Theatre and on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. See the Dolby Theater, home of the Academy Awards, and the El Capitan Theatre, where Jimmy Kimmel has his show.

Relax over lunch (own expense) at the famous 50s-style Mel's Diner on the Sunset Strip before hitting Rodeo Drive, the exclusive shopping street in Beverly Hills. Then experience the laid-back atmosphere of Santa Monica and see the carnival of amusements on Venice Beach, including the bodybuilders showing off on Muscle Beach. Throughout your tour, your guide will tell you about the spots locals love and show you places like the Gold's Gym where Arnold Schwarzenegger got his start and the Stella Adler acting school where Marlon Brando once trained.

After your 8-hour day trip to Los Angeles, enjoy the convenience of being dropped off back at your Long Beach hotel.

We have been to LA several times passing through. This visit allowed for a touristy type tour and we were completely satisfied.

The only problem with the tour is that our information indicated we were touring with viator. After phoning the company a.sunseeker bus arrived to pick up other tourists. Alberto, the tour guide, was astute enough to realize we were part of his tour.he saved the day! We enjoyed the rest of the excursion.

Our driver was Alberto, very knowledgeable and entertaining. A fun filled trip. Highly recommend this tour, there is no way you could see all the sights on your own that you are able to see with a guided tour, plus having to deal with the traffic.
