About Historical Hollywood Tour

Along an unassuming half-mile stretch of Sunset Boulevard–where high-rises are headstones for long-gone landmarks–Hollywood’s birthplace is brought back to life during this enchanting 90-minute walking tour. Journey through decades to the nucleus of classic Hollywood, where it all began. Your guide knows the rich history behind every inch and icon of this famous strip and he’ll uncover the origins of major film studios, radio and television networks, and record companies from the 1910s through today. This fascinating black-and-white world transforms into Technicolor through vintage photographs, gossip, and anecdotes as you tread the hallowed grounds of Tinseltown’s trailblazers. Whether you’re fresh off the plane or have driven these streets for years, you’ll never see Hollywood the same way again.

1500 Vine St., (statue in front), Los Angeles, California 90028

Review

Philip was extremely knowledgeable about Hollywood history and related quite a bit of it in 90 minutes. He was very entertaining! I really appreciated his willingness at the end of the tour to stick around and answer any and all questions. Highly recommend!
