Dropping Names in Bel-Air
Bel-Air Is a Gold Mine of Celebrity Homes for Our Private Tour Guests to See
Right across from one entrance to UCLA (University of California Los Angeles) is one of the extravagant entrances to the exclusive neighborhood of Bel-Air. We think of it as the Beverly Hills of Los Angeles but without the luxury shopping. Sightseeing here is really about celebrity homes that line the verdant canopied streets winding up into and around the hills. In many ways it is a highlight of our Los Angeles private tour when our guests really want to know where their favorite stars lived…or live today. When we head through this gate our guides can begin dropping familiar names from all periods of Hollywood history from the Silent Era to present day. Just to give you an idea along just this one road: Joe E. Brown, Howard Hawks, Talia Shire, Lauren Bacall, Peter Ustinov, Terry Semel, William Friedkin, set location for 9-5 (Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Dolly Parton) and Hart to Hart (Robert Wagner, Stephanie Powers), Sonja Henie, Sherry Lansing, Joseph Pasternak, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Brian Wilson, Janet Gaynor, Howard Hughes, Grace Kelly, Elvis Presley, Majel Barrett/Gene Roddenberry, Cary Grant, Ray Milland, Basil Rathbone, Carol Bayer Sager, James Burrows, Richard Gere, Red Skelton, Jerry Herman, David Wolper, Jim Backus, Alfred Hitchcock, John Barrymore, George Sanders, Peggy Lee, Mick Fleetwood, Rita Hayworth, John Forsythe, Dennis Franz, Robert Loggia, Dennis Wilson. There are many more streets in Bel-Air, too, and lots more names to drop as we slowly cruise through the area. And do not forget there are Holmby Hills and Beverly Hills to explore, too.
