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

Hidden Hollywood is a crash course on life in Hollywood, local style! On this LA tour, you’ll see Hollywood like a true local as you avoid crowds by veering away from the tourist scene, in favour of walking residential streets and sipping coffee at a local cafe. You’ll even get the inside scoop on places some locals probably don’t know about.
We’ll navigate you through Hollywood’s hills and neighbourhoods by foot, observing the area’s ornate architecture, local lifestyle, and pointing out celebrity homes tucked in amongst regular locals.
Visit an historic, members-only community garden that is actively preserving 100-year-old avocado trees and keeping one of Hollywood’s oldest tourist attractions intact.
Admire the Mediterranean, Victorian, and European architecture prevalent in Hollywood’s original estates, and walk partway up Runyon Canyon Park for an inspirational view over Los Angeles. This Hollywood tour with a local really is the very best way to get to know this iconic neighbourhood, and with all the local insight you'll learn about it, you'll leave this tour with a fresh perspective on Hollywood.
