Always Surprises When Our Private Tour is at The Grove
The convenience of our private Los Angeles tour is that we meet our guests at their hotels when they are staying in the area. We also meet them at whatever time of the day they want. That is the essence of a private custom luxury tour. From their hotel we show them around the city visiting all the destinations they express an interest in seeing. No set route, no set itinerary. We can proceed, double back and stop whenever our guests wish. Now, sometimes our guests are driving into the city just for the day and request that we meet them where they can park their vehicle. That is pretty common. One of our favorite rendezvous locations is The Grove. This wonderful outdoor shopping mall is unlike any other (except for the developer’s equally impressive mall in nearby Glendale, the Americana at Brand). Designed to be like a village there is dining, entertainment, shopping and apartment-living all in one location. The mall is extremely walkable but there is also a double-decked trolley that circumnavigates the mall to save some wear and tear on the soles of our guests. The Grove is immediately adjacent to Los Angeles’ famed Original Farmers Market which only adds to the pleasure of spending time here. We find that the ample parking (most important, a valet service!) and assorted activities make this a perfect place to meet our guests. They can really enjoy themselves before and after our tour of Hollywood and Beverly Hills and wherever else in Los Angeles they want to visit with us. And who knows, they might find themselves there the day a giant bubble-making machine is rolled out. Bubbles in spring, as joyful as the manufactured snow that falls here during the winter holidays.
