Spread Out the Joy of a Private Tour of Los Angeles
over Several Days
There is no reason not to see as much of Los Angeles on a visit here as you can. Rather than squeezing as much as possible into as short a time as possible we suggest planning several days for an extended private Los Angeles tour with us. No matter how large your family or travel group we can customize a tour to get you to all the best sights to see and destinations to enjoy. Our large happy group from Australia spent a day sightseeing in Hollywood and Beverly Hills and along the coast, learning about the city’s history and how we became a center of culture and industry through the past two centuries. Another day we spent learning about all things Walt Disney during a visit to his Magic Kingdom of Disneyland in Anaheim. Our guides are well versed in the history and details of the park and know all the ins-and-outs. Plus, we get amazing photographs because we practice all the time. A third day of touring was spent at Universal Studios Hollywood where we embarked on their very special VIP Experience, a somewhat private exploration of the park and studio with lots of perks that the tram riders do not get to enjoy (breakfast, lunch, front-of-line access, Q&As with the performers after the shows plus a guide with a show schedule whose sole purpose is to see that every show is seen and enjoyed at just the right time….in other words – no waiting. You just can’t beat the Universal VIP Experience for its informative nature and private enjoyment of the studio.
The Road for our Los Angeles Tour to Disneyland Might be Wider…
…but it might not be any faster. We decided to take a look back as the new year begins but not to last year, much much earlier. Disneyland was built on farm land back in 1955 and Harbor Boulevard, only 2-lanes wide, was the main roadway through the fields and into the park. This might have been a photograph taken by our private tour guide on the way to the Happiest Place on Earth if we had been in business way back then. Our guests today enjoying a custom luxury tour to the famed park see a lot more asphalt and very few fields. The new film about Walt Disney and Mary Poppins, Saving Mr. Banks, likely had to employ a lot of CGI to get the look right for Disneyland in 1961.
