    Really enjoyed the hike! Good views of the Hollywood sign and the LA county. Our guide, Sarah, was entertaining and very informative. She knew the place at the back of her hand, she was sharing tidbits of trivia and stories of places we saw in the view while we were hiking. Also shared tons of recommendations of things-to-do in the city. She said she's from Chicago but would totally pass as a local guide. Would recommend even for those who haven't hiked in the past! You'll break a light sweat but easily doable.

    A great experience to get to know Los Angeles. I recommend wearing comfortable shoes, a cap or hat, and sunscreen. If you want to climb on your own it is not the best, the guide is worth it because if there are confusing trails and the photos are incredible with their recommendations.

    We had a great experience, it was the first time my kids (age 13 and 14) were in California. Our tour guide Emily was phenomenal! She was very knowledgeable about the history of Hollywood and the sign and offered insights that made the hike very fun and interesting. I would definitely do this again and highly recommend it for families of all ages.
