Discover the favorite hangouts and drinking dens of Hollywood’s old-school legends during this 3-hour, small-group walking tour. This booze-themed history tour is a great chance to learn about the legendary party culture and celebrity milieu that has characterized Hollywood’s social scene for many decades.

Start your visit in the evening at the Hollywood & Highland Center, following your guide on foot to the world famous Hollywood Boulevard. Listen as your guide share details about the iconic sidewalk stars that make up the “Walk of Fame,” hearing about the film world’s most influential writers, directors and actors. 

Then pop into a number of the renowned bars where various Hollywood stars have socialized, ate and drank over the years. Some of these hotspots of yesteryear still make an occasional cameo in films and on TV. But your guide will also reveal a number of lesser-known anecdotes, featuring the city’s rotating cast of mobsters and a hush-hush “Writer’s Room” that contribute to the unique atmosphere that persists to this day. Along the way you’ll enjoy select drink tastings, and also have a chance to sample the diverse street food found in the neighborhood. You may even spot a celebrity or two during your visit.

In addition to the bars visited on the trip, your guide will also point out iconic local buildings and the hotspots where locals hang out in the present day. It’s a great way to help avoid the tourist traps during the rest of your trip. You’ll finish your walking trip outside of the Roosevelt Hotel on Hollywood Boulevard, a great spot to check out the property’s amazing bar and mingle with a few natives.

I rated this higher in Trip Advisor but only because we really liked Aerienne's follow-through e-mails, etc. with us after the tour and I was basically rating the tour guide and the entire experience. Now I am only rating the tour and I will tell you what I didn't like about it. We went to 5 bars/restaurants, walking through 2 of them and drinking at the rest. By drinking, we are talking beer and wine only no martinis or other specialty drinks and on the last go-around, we had a small plate of nachos for 3-4 of us with our beer, which for a tour that started at 5:30 and lasted until at least 8:30, was not very filling. Viator tour description talked about street food - there was none: attribute this to inclement weather small tour? This bar crawl was disappointing.

Older crowd, hard to find the guide, ok phone service for when we got lost, lots of history but, not a lot of drinking. There was basically no food. It was more of a museum tour of major obvious landmarks than a bar crawl. Most of the stuff you could have found yourself. The guide was good at getting us into the 3 bars we went to quickly though, and was enthusiastic about the information he had to share. The title and description of the tour was misleading.

Just not worth the money or the time. One highlight was our tour guide, Yousuf, taking us down and old crummy alley way and talking about how the influences of Mexico are still apparent here it was literally just an old crummy alleyway.....at that point I felt so ripped off I had to laugh....the drinks along the way help.

The guide was very nice but overall not worth doing! Made it to 5 bars in a 3 block radius, only 2 drinks half the size of a normal drink and one small appetizer to share among 4 people.
