Tipping Info

If you are happy with the services provided by your local guides a tip - though not compulsory - is appropriate. While it may not be customary to you, it is of great significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels, inspires excellent service, and is an entrenched feature of the tourism industry across many Intrepid Urban Adventures destinations. Please consider this when budgeting for your extra expenses on this tour.

Itinerary

A haven for art, beauty, and gourmet fare, Beverly Hills’ Golden Triangle offers more than just window shopping on Rodeo Drive. Just off the tourist path, the area is dotted with galleries, museums, and gardens often missed by the average tourist. Join us on this LA tour to step off that tourist path in favour of the less travelled side streets, and an introduction to the realities of Beverly Hills. We’ll show you quirks and local spots that will prove there’s more to Beverly Hills than botox and boob jobs.
Because it’s so iconic, we will travel down Rodeo Drive, but instead of window shopping, we’ll dish on things like historic architecture, local stories, and relatively unknown quirky facts that will help you really understand Beverly Hills.
Your LA tour will also be chock full of sweets and treats, with visits to some of our fave shops – rustic cheese and gourmet chocolate, anyone?! We’ll also hit up Sprinkles, the original cupcake bakery in Los Angeles (and the people responsible for making cupcakes so insanely popular). Dig in to a sample while learning about Sprinkles’ sustainable practices and celebrity status.
Keep your sugar high in check, because next up on this Beverly Hills tour is a rather impressive family-owned gallery, stocked with masterpieces by Rembrandt, Renoir, and Dali (to name a few). We’ll also check out one of LA’s most interesting and underrated museums, a unique media museum that you probably wouldn’t have found on your own.
