The magic of Hollywood comes alive! - This is one of a series of walking tours I did with knowledgeable local guide Phil, it was great to see different elements of the early social and architectural history of such a big part of our culture - happened to be there a few days before the Oscars so we saw some of the 'behind the scenes' preparations and sort of walk the red carpet which was fun!! Our guide Phil knows his City and can tell a great story, sharing it with great enthusiasm - the tour is well worth your time - do it!

Fantastic, fun walking tour through the history of Hollywood Boulevard. - This was an intriguing, exhilarating, and informative tour of Hollywood history with Cheyenne. Her energy and enthusiasm was only matched by her knowledge and story-telling abilities. I was thrilled to get the inside scoop on the early years of Hollywood and the contemporary state of the neighborhood, not to mention recommendations for eating and drinking at 'old Hollywood' destinations. Cheyenne really knew her stuff and was, in addition, a great conversationalist. I highly recommend this tour!
