Walt Disney Concert Hall Wonder

Street view of the Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los AngelesNo custom tour of Los Angeles is complete without a visit to the Walt Disney Concert Hall, home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra and Gustavo Dudamel.  The building defies description and must be seen to be believed.  The exterior is wondrous and the interior is breathtaking.  Enjoy a private tour of Los Angeles with a stop for a special tour of the facility during the day and return in the evening for a concert to fully experience Frank Gehry’s otherworldly vision of what urban civic architecture can be.

Oysters on the Half Shell

Photo of Chaya Venice's oyster dishChaya Venice, a great place to stop for drinks and dinner any time, especially after having taken a tour of Malibu, Hermosa, Redondo and Santa Monica beach communities.  The eatery often features oysters, the mollusk with a delicious jewel inside every shell.  Oysters on the half-shell, fried oysters, oyster chowder are all amazing as well as being served with incredible meat and salad pairs.  Oooo-la-la, if these dishes are not an aphrodisiac they will certainly arouse your taste buds.  Enjoy!

Still Feeling in the Pink’s

Well, since Bank of America is getting all those marketing miles from reminding everyone that they financed the company back in the good old days, we just want to say that Pink's is a great place to stop on one of our Hollywood tours because the hotdogs are great.

Holmby Hills Home Security System

Photograph of 2 bulldogs peeking under a gate in Holmby Hills

There is no reason to spare any expense when it comes to home security in Holmby Hills. These two dogs would keep anyone (even us during a tour) away.

See the Basketball Stars

Logo of the Los Angeles ClippersIf you have spent the day out on a custom private tour of Hollywood and Beverly Hills hoping to see a movie star, well, you are unlikely to see them sitting in a lawn chair on their front yards or walking on a sidewalk entering a studio.  Where you can pretty much count on seeing them is at a professional sporting event at the Staples Center.  This year the Los Angeles Clippers are returning to celebrity favor and are a contending team in the strike-shortened season.  Billy Crystal and Frankie Muniz are always regular Clipper fans but who else is joining the celebrity fans ranks?  Drop by and see for yourself.  This coming Monday the Clippers host the New Orleans Hornets.  Enjoy an evening watching big stars watching tall athletes.

How Tour Guides Know This Stuff

Book cover for MGM - Hollywood's Greatest BacklotAs we tour Los Angeles, Hollywood, Beverly Hills and other interesting neighborhoods with our guests we often have occasion to tell stories about the sights we are seeing.  Our guests are always impressed with our knowledge.  Where do we get that information?  From books such as M-G-M, Hollywood’s Greatest Backlot.  This book and its website provide incredible relevant gems for our staff in the way of anecdotes and facts about the once great studio that we show off in Culver City.  If the guests desire a walking tour of the studio we can accompany them and often contribute to the information the docent provides.  We recommend this book if you want to learn more about M-G-M.
