The tour was far more than we could have imagined or hoped for. Our tour guide was a wealth of knowledge and juicy tid bits of the Hollywood who’s who and made the adventure well with the money. The air-conditioned Mercedes van was comfortable, clean, and a great way to see all those amazing homes! Highly recommend.

Our driver/tour guide was very friendly, fun and knowledgeable about the area and the old stars homes. We would recommend this tour to anyone looking for a good time while learning about some history.
