About Hollywood - Behind the Scenes Walking Tour
Hollywood is a place, a name and a phenomenon known in every corner of the globe. But there is so much more to this mecca than just movies. Hollywood is a living museum of American architecture and history. Discover little known theaters, landmarks and architectural marvels on this insightful one hour walking tour!
Go behind-the-scenes - Part sightseeing tour, part architecture tour, part history tour - this is Hollywood's only tour offering access inside the landmarks including Disney's El Capitan Theater (where the Disney movies are premiered), Grauman's Egyptian Theater (birthplace of the movie premiere), the Blossom Room (site of the first Academy Awards ceremony), a real Hollywood 'Speakeasy' from the gangster era of Prohibition Hollywood and the Stella Adler Academy (where movie stars train as actors).
Waste no time - In 1 hour and 15 minutes, guides will personally escort you directly to Hollywood's most famous landmarks including Grauman's Chinese Theater (stars' hand and foot prints), the Kodak Theater (the home of the Academy Awards), Hollywood and Highland, the Walk of Fame and Hollywood Sign plus much more. Along the way guides offer narration on the history of Hollywood and movie making plus the stars that helped shape Hollywood.
Hear the Narration! - Enjoy a 21st Century experience with the ultra high-tech 'Live-Audio' hearing system. Each visitor wears a 'walkman-like' headset receiver while your guide wears a headset microphone. Visitors control the volume of the guide along the way drowning out street noise - especially helpful for the hearing impaired. This is not a pre-recorded tour.
Spot a star - The stars no longer stroll Hollywood Boulevard but you guide will tell you where to find them. Your guide will offer you hints on places one would mostly likely spot a movie star in Hollywood.
