The sign was originally created in 1923 as an advertisement for a local real estate development, but due to increasing recognition, the sign was left up. The sign has been a frequent target of pranks and vandalism across the decades, but it has since undergone restoration, including the installation of a security system to deter vandalism. The sign is protected and promoted by The Hollywood Sign Trust, a nonprofit organization, while its site and the surrounding land are part of Griffith Park. The sign makes frequent appearances in popular culture, particularly in establishing shots for films and television programs set in or around Hollywood. Signs of similar style, but spelling different words, are frequently seen as parodies. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce holds trademark rights to the Hollywood Sign.

There was a big queue coming from hotel pick up tour waitung for their documents to the main tour, as the was only ONE employee working; the life audio in the main tour bus didn't work properly; Universal tour is a complete separate tour, so it made much more sense, to board the metro nearby, which is a 7 min $1.75 - next stop tour instead of waiting one more hour for the official bus shuttle.

Bus ride was too long!

, Dec 2018
It was fine until we got on the bus to go home and we literally drove over an hour and a half and our hotel was around the corner. We kept asking the bus driver where we were going next and he ignored us. We finally got off the bus at the 4th hotel we stopped at and caught an Uber. It was not a fun tour!!

Spyridon T

The tour is not exactly as advertised on viator.com. The itinerary is reverse: half day at the theme park free time where you can cue with all others to see the studio tour and then back to the Chinese Theatre to start the celebrities' homes tour. Not 9.5 hours as mentioned in viator.com but only 7. Not as good as expected but definitely worth going to both theme park and celebrities' homes.

We really appreciated being collected from our hotel. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and quite humorous. The only suggestion I have is to recommend that people take a bottle of water and possibly a snack as it was a lengthy tour of Hollywood homes with no opportunity to purchase drinks. Also we were told to be back at the bus by 6pm sharp or we would miss the bus however we sat in the hot bus for an hour before it eventually left.

Loved it all until the end of the night when we were delayed for over half an hour for our transfer back to the hotel, spoilt what would have been a perfect day. The whole end was disorganized and unprofessional and is the only reason I am giving 3 instead of 4 stars.
