Latte Time Hidden Hollywood
from 1 review
From USD 65.00

You’ll practically be a Hollywood local after going on this Los Angeles tour that includes the things you’d expect (an incredible view and wicked people-watching), and some things you wouldn’t expect (great locally roasted coffee, community gardens, and Hollywood’s best kept secrets).


Stars and Bars tour Historic Hollywood Stars & Bars
from 4 reviews
From USD 69.00

Be transported back to the golden years of Hollywood (a time before plastic surgery and TMZ) by hanging in old bars, speakeasies, cocktail lounges, and mobster hangouts. Admire the Art Deco décor and the blinking neon signs while hearing tales of Hollywood folklore and Golden Age gossip over a drink.


Beverly Hills Beverly Hills: Beyond the Botox
from 1 review
From USD 69.00

Get to know all things 90210 on this Los Angeles tour through the power and privilege of Beverly Hills’ ‘Golden Triangle’. Go beyond the botox and into lesser-known cultural havens, sample gourmet fare, and chow down at an iconic cupcake bakery. And you thought the Golden Triangle was an opium growing region in Southeast Asia!

Summer was a great guide, very easy going and knowledgeable. There were just three of us on the tour so we had plenty of time to talk to her and learn more about the places we visited.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. The only comment we would offer is that it was a bit too long. We would have deleted the last two stops. We were all pretty tired by then and certainly stuffed! But very generous to give us so much for such a small fee. We live here so we now have all these great new places to go! We will definitely do more!

This was a birthday surprise. We have never done this before and we enjoyed it. Summer was our guide and she was awesome. I liked all of the history that Summer gave us along our tour. She gave us info on the city, the cultures that we were experiencing, and a little background on the owners of the restaurants we visited. We even got to meet a few of the owners. We booked the Ethnic Neighborhoods. I couldn't wait to tell my friends and family about this surprise. I even told a salesperson at Sports Chalet about it. I gave her the website to look at. Thank you Summer!!!!

Summer was an excellent tour guide. She effortlessly led us around the city and knew a great deal about the areas we were visiting. Although we never felt rushed, she finished exactly when she was supposed to. We were very impressed with the whole tour. I saw this tour on Groupon and it looked like fun, so I invited three of my friends to go. We'd do it again in a heartbeat!

A really interesting and informative tour, not to mention all the wonderful food-sampling. It was more food than expected and the restaurants were all very clean and nice.

I'm not really a bar person but my friend wanted me take this tour with her, and I had an absolutely wonderful time! We learned about some wonderful off the beaten path bars. Some were upscale, others were comfy locals only type places, but all had rich Hollywood history. Our guide was knowledgeable, funny, and made everything comfortable and easy for our group.

It was one of the best tours I have been on. I was the only one who signed up for the tour and they still proceeded with the tour. Summer my guide was wonderful. Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. She took me places that I had only heard about and had never seen. I learned a lot about my own backyard. I think most locals feel that they know their city but that is not true there is so much to learn and this tour taught me more then I ever expected.I would definitely recommend this tour. Honestly, sign up as quickly as you can. You will not be sorry.

I had another great tour with Summer!! She was very entertaining, knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. We laughed and had a great time! The best part of the tour was eating spicy Thai soup, so incredible! I would love to go on another tour with Summer!
