I loved this tour. Brian was a great and hilarious guide. He was highly informative and knew a lot of Hollywood history. We were able to see so many locations in 3 hours. It was a comfortable ride despite LA traffic. I loved how he showed movie clips before taking us to the location. Highly recommended!

I'd been on the Dearly Departed tour before and this one was just as excellent. The guide knew a lot about Hollywood. The new departure office was about 600 metres walk away from Hollywood and Highland in a slightly lonely neighbourhood, though I was assured it was quite safe. It was fun in the office looking at all the Hollywood memorabaelia though I would take it all with a pinch of salt (the photo of the bedpost held by Rock Hudson does not look like the bedpost on display). Fascinating tinformative our

Excellent guide - extremely knowledgeable and obviously a real film enthusiast. Videos of films shown as we arrived at each movie location which made it even more real and interesting.
