After meeting Philip Mershon at the Larry Edmunds Bookshop several years ago, I was finally able to go on his walking tour of historic Hollywood sites. This is not a “look at the stars in the sidewalk” type of tour, it’s a more of an archeological dig into the history of a 1/2-mile stretch of Sunset Blvd where you discover the origins of 4 major film companies, 3 radio networks, 3 television networks, 6 record companies, 2 legendary recording, and much more! It’s well organized, thoughtfully researched, and Philip has a real gift for teaching. I give it my highest recommendation!

Our guide was like an encyclopedia of Hollywood history. The tour was very informative and well planned out. Highly recommended for anyone that wants to delve a bit deeper into the roots of Hollywood.

Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and personable. The tour was actually the highlight of our trip to California where the weather was gloomy and water activities were not feasible.
