We had a Blast, wish it was longer but did Enjoy our tour guide and the knowledge she had and explaining everything in detail and why. She was Awesome.
We had a fabulous time on this tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and fun. The time flew by and we didn't want it to be over.
very informative to get into the Egyptian Theatre and to look at the hand and foot prints at the Chinese Theatre with some information about it, given by the guide.
Guide (whose name I can't remember) was very informative and fun. In a short time, I think I got a feel of the the "old Hollywood". Enjoyed this walking tour despite temperatures over 100 degrees.
This was a great tour. In a short space of time we walked and heard the history of Hollywood. It was fun. The guide managed the group well (crossing roads and staying as a group while we walked through crowds). We all were connected via headsets so we could hear all the time.
The guide was really good and we learned a great deal about the past and present of Hollywood Boulevard (with a little bit of future mixed in). Well worth our time and money. - Family on a tight budget
My friend and I enjoyed this tour - the guide was excellent! The only complaint I have is that nowhere on the website did it indicate that it is customary to tip the guide.- so we felt unprepared. And the guide was deserved a generous tip!
It was great, very interesting facts about Hollywood, a glimpse to the Hollywood sign and a great explication of the walk of fame. We enjoyed it a lot.
The tour guide gave us a lot of history about Hollywood which was nice. Was friendly too. The place was very crowded, so even with headphones, it is hard to fully hear what the guide is saying unless you stay close to him/her. The place where the tour starts is somewhat inconspicuous, so go there fifteen minutes early so you can find it.
Our tour leader was friendly and very knowledgeable. Other than very hot weather which he couldn't control, it was well worth the money for the tour. I would highly recommend.
We found the tour fascinating as our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a real insight into the early days of the cinema. The headphones were an excellent idea as we were able to hear every word of the tour.
Very interesting tour. Liked the headsets as could hear everything guide was saying. Loads of interesting stories and very central location
We took the last tour of the day because we heard that you get to see extra things, and sure enough we saw the Chinese, the Egyptian, Kodak and Disney amongst others. The walk is not that bad either and do not worry if you walk slow, you have head phones on and you can hear everything while you catch up. Great!
We enjoyed the Behind the Scenes Walking Tour. The Grauman's Egyptian Theater is gorgeous and I honestly had no idea the Dobie mall is where the Oscars are held. And thanks to the juicy details about Hollywood's historical elite, I'm a bit conflicted about the snapshot I took of Charlie Chaplin's star on the walk of fame. Hmmm.
I have to give props the tour guide, though. I wish I could remember his name but what pleasantly surprised my daughter and me was the fact that we were the only 2 people on the tour and that Viator didn't cancel because of low attendance. So, we essentially received our very own private tour.
The headphones were especially helpful because the Boulevard is pretty noisy.
The walking tour met my expectations. The tour guide was able to provide additional information about what we saw, was friendly, and didn't lose anyone.
Jared was our guide. Highly informative tour. We saw and learned things one would never get by walking the area by yourself, especially with the large crowds in the area. Recommended if you want to learn the history of the area and see sights you may not get into any other way
After a long flight from Sydney to LA arriving early morning - thought this was a good way to spend a few hours.
It was very interesting and informative and a good snapshot of the Hollywood strip area including the theater tour.
Especially enjoyed the various stars that were pointed out as well as some of the hand and foot prints in front of the Chinese Theatre.
The guide was knowledgeable and I learnt a lot on this tour and found it fascinating. Recommended.
Loved this tour - wonderful to hear some behind the stories of Hollywood in the old days. Rhonda M
The guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining, and worked very hard to ensure people were involved in the tour. This is a great way to get a little more insight into Hollywood, but there wasn't much 'Behind the Scenes'.
We enjoyed the tour. Only 3 in our group, which made it more personal. Tour guide was very fun, informative, and actually shared information that you couldn't just get out of a weekly Hollywood gossip magazine. Room for improvement: More behind the scenes access. Most of the tour was outside where the general public can go for free.
