Los Angeles: Make The Most of LA Private Tour

2. Los Angeles: Make The Most of LA Private Tour

This is an example of your private customizable highlights tour. Meet your guide and get comfortable in a new, climate controlled vehicle. You'll begin with a brief drive to the beautiful neighborhood of Venice Beach. Once a seaside resort town, this surfer’s paradise is crisscrossed with canals, just like its Italian namesake. Venice is the center of counterculture in LA and is home to some of its most eclectic and bohemian residents. Stroll down the vibrant Venice Boardwalk and enjoy its street vendors, artists and performers as you learn about the birth of skateboarding and surfing culture and make your way towards the iconic Santa Monica Pier. Along the way, you will see the "Baywatch" headquarters, Muscle Beach, pass by the local Freak Show and let the laid-back ambiance of Venice Beach wash over you. Next, head to Santa Monica to learn about its interesting history. On the iconic pier, you will be dazzled by the local flavor of live music, laughing children, happy travelers and carnival noises which will heighten your senses and you will quickly come to understand why this is such a beloved part of the city. Try your luck at one of the carnival games and feel instantly transported back in time. Finally, snap a photo beneath the landmark sign and say you made it to the end of the historic Route 66. After a leisurely lunch, now it's time to glitz it up in the center of cosmopolitan LA. Your group will cruise by La Cienega’s restaurant row and see some of the world's most famous restaurants. View legendary institutions like the Saban Theater, home to many famous plays, musical events and filmed television segments from shows such as "Glee." Along the way, you'll cruise the Miracle Mile and see some of LA County Museum of Art outdoor exhibits. Right next door, the group will behold the wonder that is the La Brea Tar Pits - a natural pit of tar that has trapped prehistoric animals and now displays their large, dinosaur like fossils throughout the park. As you make your way into Hollywood, you will pass notable locations including the iconic Hollywood sign. Count stars on the Walk of Fame. Fit your hands into the impressions of legendary actors at Sid Grauman's Chinese Theater. Don't forget to strike a pose at the Dolby Theater, where the Oscars are held. Now cruise down Sunset Blvd. See iconic venues of famous rock stars such as the Doors, Jimi Hendrix, the Ramones, Aerosmith and more. The day will wrap up scoping out the homes of the stars in glamorous Beverly Hills. Join your guide and walk the grounds of a billion dollar estate, Greystone Manor.

What people are saying about Los Angeles County Museum of Art

A good way to get around Hollywood, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, and surrounding areas. The recorded commentary provides interesting facts about some of the sights along the way. The separate tour of the homes of the stars climbs into the Hollywood Hills for some good views. The app allows you to find out when the next bus is due to arrive at your stop.

This was nice to see more without being on my feet the whole time. They stop and you can get off and get back on when the next bus comes around. Very nice tour and bus and staff. The staff were all friendly and professional. They didn’t run us down and try to force us to buy like the other similar companies.

Loved it! Great way to discover highlights around LA. The staff were friendly and helpful The bus drivers were not particularly personable but we really didn’t have to deal with them because it’s an audio tour

Excellent tours. It gives you an overview of important parts of the City.

I had an amazing experience! They are very comprehensive and kind.
