  • Experience Hollywood’s “Walk of Fame” by taking in the ambiance of its Golden Era bars and learning about the stars that dot Hollywood Boulevard, both literally and figuratively. On this LA walking tour, pass the famous and infamous bars that 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 places 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 stroll the boulevard on foot, stopping into bars of note and admiring iconic buildings along the way. We enjoy select libations at designated locations and stop for a light snack along the way on this cocktail tour of Hollywood. By the end of our evening, you know where the locals go to eat and drink in Hollywood!

    Otneil was great! He was very informative and personable. He took/shared lots of photos AND gave us a list of tour stops which is most welcomed as my memory isn’t that great.

    Mr. Liz A. from USA traveled on 01 Feb 2017:

    Otneil was a fantastic tour guide!

    Mr. Vladimir K. from Australia traveled on 27 Dec 2016:

    Great guide.
    Rainny weather.

    Ms. Laura H. from USA traveled on 04 Oct 2016:

    The tour, and our guide was fantastic! We weren’t sure what to expect as this was our first Urban Adventure, but the evening far surpassed our expectations. We had some locals and some out-of-towners in our group and everyone learned something new and enjoyed the stops. Fun to see the bars and restaurants that were popular during Hollywood’s hay day and we have added a few to the list of future dinner and drinks excursions. I can’t recommended this enough–we had so much fun and know that this will not be our last Urban Adventure!

    Mr. David G. from USA traveled on 25 May 2016:

    Loved this tour. Haven’t stopped talking about it with my friends and family. Summer made this tour pop! I really got a better sense of LA thanks to Summer’s knowledge and enthusiasm. Have recommended this to a lot of people. Thank you.

    Ms. Joyce C. from traveled on 26 Feb 2014:

    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.

    Ms. Tracie L. from traveled on 08 Jul 2013:

    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.

    Mr. James S. from Australia traveled on 20 May 2013:

    Yousef was an excellent guide and i will be recommending Urban Adventures to my friends.

    Ms. Elaine M. from USA traveled on 09 Nov 2011:

    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.
