Lights, camera, action! We’ve toured our way through the USA, from Hollywood to New York to Hawaii, and visited famous locations from our favorite TV shows and movies. It’s a great way to see a different side to these locations, with heaps of insider angles on celebs and characters.
Hit the ground running with an up close and personal walk through Hollywood’s heart. This walking tour takes you to see the stars’ handprints and signatures outside Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, the home of the Academy Awards at the Kodak Theatre and the Walk of Fame. Even better, your movie guide will let you in on a few Hollywood secrets and point you in the right direction to do a little star spotting.
Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Bel-Air and Los Angeles are packed with A-listers’ mansions, and you’ll see more than 40 of them on this tour. Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera, Tom Cruise – you name ’em. You’ll also get to see famous LA sights like the Hollywood sign, Walk of Fame, Sunset Strip and Rodeo Drive.
Get to grips with Tinseltown on a tour of the sights you’ll recognise from such movies as Sunset Boulevard, Chinatown and Pretty Woman. Don’t worry if you can’t name the film – movie clips are screened on your ‘movie theatre on wheels’ tour bus while you’re parked out front, and your expert movie buff tour leader can add the inside gossip.
Step behind the scenes at Universal Studios, with entry to the famous backlots and skip-the-line entry to the studios’ shows and attractions.
