Itinerary:

Venture out on the “Walk of Fame” and learn about the stars that dot Hollywood Boulevard, both literally and figuratively. The famous and infamous bars along the walk were lunch spots and evening haunts to the celebrities and wannabes of Hollywood’s Golden Age, and still appear frequently in film and television. Speakeasies, mobster hangouts and even a “Writer’s Room” are the lesser-known histories lodged within these historic hot spots. Go behind the scenes--behind the beautiful Art Deco facades and bright neon lights--where these bars, lounges and restaurants are host to celebrity lore, ghost stories and maybe even star sightings.

 

We’ll stroll the boulevard on foot, stopping into bars of note and admiring iconic buildings along the way. We’ll enjoy select drink tastings at designated locations and get to know where the locals go!

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.

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.

Our guide Marci (sp?) was great. The tour gave us an opportunity to learn some history and experience some Hollywood night life. The tour more than lived up to our expectations.
