Hollywood Summer Fun – Hollywood Sightseeing Tour

Do you want to have a summer fun day in Hollywood? Do you want to know where they filmed certain movies? Do you want to know where the stars live in beautiful breathtaking mansions?  Well then, you’re way overdue for a Hollywood Tour!

A Hollywood Tour is the perfect way to enjoy Hollywood, entertain the family or your relatives, and learn about Hollywood’s famous.  Be sure to bring a camera and relax while your tour guide drives through Beverly Hills, Rodeo Drive, Bel-Air, and Mulholland Highway.  Mulholland Highway is not really a highway, but a two-lane road that ascends into the local hills, where the stars call home.

A short rest period at the top of Mulholland allows for picture taking and a breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains and the Los Angeles Basin. The Hollywood sign is in the distance and looking in the opposite direction you can see the city of Los Angeles with all of its tall buildings. On a clear day one can see out to the ocean. 

Not such a clear day over the L.A. Basin

The tour guide points out homes of the famous in Mulholland, Bel-Air and Beverly Hills. Be prepared to see the enormous homes of Clark Gable, Elizabeth Taylor, Ronald Reagan, Jacqueline Smith, who starred in television series in the 1970’s Charlie’s Angels and so many more.

The tour guide provides tidbits of information about famous streets, hotels and buildings where actors got their start or met their un-timely death and where they filmed movies. 

One of those buildings featured as the apartment in the movie, Pretty Woman 1990, starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere. At the end of the movie, he climbs the ladder after a light rain and meets her on the stairs and they fell into each other’s arms, a true romantic moment.  

A Hollywood Sightseeing Tour is an afternoon of fun and excitement. There is something for everyone, of all ages, to enjoy on a Hollywood tour. After the tour, which drops you off right on Hollywood Boulevard, you can walk the Hollywood Walk of Fame and see the famous stars that have made Hollywood, the Entertainment Capital of the World.
