How Tour Guides Know This Stuff
As 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.
