Very informative and entertaining tour. Philip knows how to tell a story that expertly weaves together all the threads of Hollywood history. Who would have guessed what a rich and varied story emerges from an otherwise inconspicuous strip of largely non-descript streetscape. By the end of the tour our imaginations were on fire and we could almost see the ghosts of Hollywood past strutting up and down Sunset Boulevard.

Philip is a great tour guide filled with interesting information about Hollywood. It was a terrific way for me and out of town guests to spend an entertaining afternoon learning new and surprising stories in the very places where they happened, and we all left feeling that we had made a new friend in Philip. I hope that there will be other opportunities like this in the future. I highly recommend this tour.

Philip is so incredibly passionate about Hollywood history and it shows! You can't help but be excited with him. Without him, I'd probably have just walked by all these buildings, completely unaware of their significance. It's amazing just how much entertainment industry history is in that one stretch of Sunset. My brother and I were lucky enough to get Philip all to ourselves for the tour and we both had a blast. Locals, next time someone out of state visits you, take them on THIS tour. You will both learn so much!
