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

Venture out on the “Walk of Fame” and learn about the stars that dot Hollywood Boulevard, both literally and figuratively. The famous and infamous bars along the walk were lunch spots and evening haunts to the celebrities and wannabes of Hollywood’s Golden Age, and still appear frequently in film and television. Speakeasies, mobster hangouts and even a “Writer’s Room” are the lesser-known histories lodged within these historic hot spots. Go behind the scenes--behind the beautiful Art Deco facades and bright neon lights--where these bars, lounges and restaurants are host to celebrity lore, ghost stories and maybe even star sightings.
We’ll stroll the boulevard on foot, stopping into bars of note and admiring iconic buildings along the way. We’ll enjoy select drink tastings at designated locations and get to know where the locals go!
