- Guided historical tour of Hollywood
Phillip (Felix) was very informative and well-researched. His walking tour was entertaining, and he kept the interest of our group for the entire time. He has a deep knowledge of the history of Hollywood, and it was fascinating to learn some of the inside scoop, particularly of the birth of Hollywood. I'd definitely recommend this tour for anyone who enjoys the history of movies, TV, or music.
Exceeded all our expectations. Felix is a brilliant tour guide into a world that few of us know so little about. His command of the history of the early years of film making & his delight in the stories & personalities he evokes brought to life, vividly, the birth of the movies.
A little too much detail about business end and early 1900s Wanted more info which was closer to the "times" I think younger people would like more contemporary info.
This was an amazing tour! Highly recommend to anyone wanting to learn unusual and interesting things about old Hollywood.
The tour provides an experience that is rarely or never available in any other tour. I'm sure the information is also not available in any single book. Philip also provides the appropriate atmosphere to revel in the wonder that is in front of those joining the tour.
I was lucky enough to get an exclusive tour, and I loved every minute of it. Very informative, and really fun. I learned a lot about a subject I was curious about but not well versed in. Thank you for a fantastic experience!
Phil's passion for film history made this tour fascinating. His knowledge and enthusiasm for films made for a fascinating afternoon. I didn't realize how much film, TV and music history took place at Sunset & Vine. Fantastic job Phil!
A highly informative and engrossing tour, highly recommended!
Very interesting and personal tour. Especially interesting for History Buffs and those who want to walk the footsteps of the great producers of tv, movies and music. I recommend this tour highly!!
A very charming, and more important, knowledgeable guy, his tour is not your usual star-struck Hollywood tour. It involves history, the recording industry. It's about how it all happened!
Very informative, great value for money and great guide!
Concise and Very Informative. Better than any TV documentaries about Historic Hollywood.
Felix was a walking encyclopedia of Hollywood origin knowledge. It was so enjoyable to learn the hidden & glamorous history of a street I've been on so many times!
Extremely informative and interesting, giving a more authentic side of Hollywood and its development as the entertainment capital of the world than you can get anywhere else. Philip was so nice and accommodating as well!
A fascinating walking tour of the true origins of Hollywood. Felix is a great guide who is extremely passionate and knowledgable about the subject. Lots of wow factor. Highly recommend taking this tour!
This is how all Hollywood tours should be! Very informative and intersting! Felix has packed a lot of information I this delightful tour! Thank you!
Philip of Felix is an incredibly knowledgeable, personable, and entertaining tour guide. He knows his stuff and has a clear passion for the history of this city, which he has clearly and thoroughly researched. I have been a fan of his blogs and pages for some time and was no less impressed with the man himself. The portrait he paints of this half mile stretch of Sunset Boulevard is vivid and fascinating, and I left the tour both inspired and even more curious. I highly recommend this not only to film aficionados to anyone who has been touched, moved or experienced music, movies or television. This tour will take you way, way back to the epic events that shaped our culture and ourselves. http://facebook.com/quoththemaven ;)
Philip has spent years researching his material and he clearly loves his subject. He manages to bring to life the history and importance of the early years of Hollywood. Much of what he told me helped make the rest of my stay in LA so much more interesting.
Highly informative, educational and good fun. A well spent 90 minutes. Thanks
Wonderful experience and great information. It far exceeded my expectations.
Phillip and his knowledge are amazing! He knows how to engage people and tell stories too!
I really enjoyed the story and visuals that you created for us. Our imagination took us back in time, and you gave us some insight into how the showbusiness industry has developed. It was an extremely well streamlined tour, I learnt a lot, and I would thorougly recommend to everyone. Still thinking of anecdotes you mentioned and having a chuckle. Thank you very much Phillip.
We learned so much about vintage Hollywood and the stories that built the foundation for this town. I highly recommend this tour for first-timers and those who think that they know all there is to know about Hollywood. Top rate, great experience!
Phil was a great tour guide. Knowledgeable and entertaining. Hated that it had to end!
Felix is an incredible story teller and makes (important and not-so-well-known) history come to life. The tour was the best part of my LA so far, and I would even do the tour again next time I'm here!
Great guy, extremely knowledgeable, looked after us patrons very well, willing and able to answer any question. I did the Paramount studio tour later that day and knew more than the guide there after this tour! I would highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in the history of Hollywood.
Great tour from an enthusiastic and very knowledgable guide. Hollywood history came alive, and the cultural impact of a half mile stretch of land was entertainingly and informatively presented. Would highly recommend.
The walk covers what, to the untutored eye, looks like a fairly nondescript stretch of Sunset Boulevard. However Philip's depth of knowledge and obvious passion for the history of Hollywood vividly brings to life the early days and heyday of Hollywood. At various points I got goosebumps thinking of some of the people who have walked that street and performed, filmed and recorded in that area. Could not recommend the tour more highly if you want to know the real Hollywood story. Also recommend combining with a visit and a martini at Musso & Franks!
Philip was just great on this tour. It is well worth taking this tour. He has so many facts that are not known about old Hollywood. It was fantastic. I learned a lot.
Philip was a fantastic story teller and was truly able to transport my husband and I back in time. I love classic films and to see where it all began was amazing! My husband and I have been talking about the tour all week. We live in LA so it was really interesting to see our surroundings in a new light. Thank you! I will definitely be referring my friends!
Though the tour guide was late arriving, he was very knowledgeable and gave a good tour.
We are still talking about our tour. It was so full of information! We enjoyed it!
Philip was a great story teller and made the entire tour interesting, educational, and fun. It was clear that he was very knowledgeable and passionate about the history of Hollywood and he made us feel like we were going back in time with his old pictures and stories about the characters who helped create the Entertainment Industry. I would recommend Philip's tour to anyone looking for something different and fun to do in LA. Marc
Felix knew the subject, was passionate about Hollywood and the movies and conveyed that passion and a wealth of information to us. We seek out these individual tours when we travel and this was one of the best I have ever experienced
Our group of 6 (different ages) enjoyed your tour very much and we learned a lot. You kept us interested for the whole time, Philip. THANK YOU!
Felix is a great story teller. He kept us engaged and entertained while giving great history on how the Hollywood industry developed.
