Los Angeles: Hollywood & Celebrity Homes Tour
- Duration: 2 hours
This by far was on my to do wish list.... ✔check now accomplished! I had such an AMAZING experience flying around some of California in the helicopter on my Birthday for the very first time ever! The whole entire crew/staff and my helicopter pilot were very hospitable and courteous to me upon my arrival. I even received a courtesy call on my way there to the helicopter charted tours from Trevor Perrin the Operations Mgr at "Orbic Air" just to confirm my reservation for that day as I was running a bit behind my reserved schedule due to LA traffic. I HIGHLY recommend anyone who may be thinking about flying in a helicopter someday to just do it, and do it with THIS particular professional chartered company. I believe that you won't regret it.
It was a chilly and foggy day, bad for us tourists. Thankfully I was by myself, so I sat up front with the driver and HEAT! It's an open window bus, so I imagine it was pretty chilly, especially when went got onto the highway to the Grove. Levi is an excellent guide, lots of fun facts, he stopped or slowed down for any picture opportunities. Love the Santa Monica pier, the Griffith Observatory (the exhibits in the building were awesome, if I had known I would have headed there right after taking pictures of the Hollywood sign). I thought gawking at the celebrity houses was a bit much. Overall a great experience and I would highly recommend!
The day was a bit chilly, so apparently lots of people had cancelled. It was just us two and another person, yet the tour still went ahead which was great. The tour guide Sammy privided us with blankets to protect from the harsh winds. There is only one stop where you get out and takd pictures with the Hollywood sign and the downtown LA skyline, but there are plenty of times along the way where the car stops for a moment to let you take pictures of the celebrity homes. All in all, we enjoyed the tour and it was a good way of noting places you think are worth coming back to on your own.
The tour guide was excellent! He did a wonderful job and is very informative on regards the history of not only the area but Los Angeles in general. He also gave us some very good tips on the Hotspot in LA.
It was a great experience and Levi was awesome. Would have preferred to spend more time at Santa Monica Pier and eliminate Griffith Observatory, but understand offering diversity.
