Private Hollywood Tour in Comfort and Style
We love our vans so much we have given a couple of them names — Mona and Lana. We don’t share the names with our guests but they love the vans as much as we do. The leather captain chairs are beyond comfortable and the large tinted windows allow everything outside to be clearly seen in a very private setting. Appearing more like a limousine we slip into and out of very exclusive neighborhoods in Beverly Hills, Holmby Hills, Bel Air, Brentwood and Malibu to show our guests celebrity homes and other major sightseeing destinations on all our private Los Angeles tours. We take care of all the little details to make sure you feel special during the entire course of your luxury tour, maybe in Mona and maybe in Lana.
In my opinion, there was no bigger show in the 1970s and early 1980s than Little House on the Prairie. The resident bully, Nellie Oleson, is still considered a “Character Most in Need of a Time-out.” Allison Arngrim, the actress who played Nellie, described her role as “having PMS for seven years.” In addition to acting and volunteering, Arngrim is a comedian and occasional Hollywood tour guide.
Nasty Nellie Tours is an exclusive tour of Los Angeles hosted by Arngrim, who shares her insights and humor with guests. She has rich stories to share from being a former child star, living at the Chateau Marmont during the 1960s, and having been to all the celebrity haunts of Hollywood. I booked one of Arngrim’s tour vans Los Angeles as a special treat for myself and some girlfriends. It was absolutely worth every penny! Arngrim is an entertaining delight as a tour guide.
The Sunset Strip has been the crux of numerous songs and films, but few people are aware of the actual history of this iconic stretch of Sunset Boulevard. Walking down The Strip it’s impossible to not become inundated by the surfeit of advertisements that are now emblematic of the area. During the 1970s, the Strip became a haven for rock stars and groupies, and its reputation as a reprieve for Hollywood celebrities remains intact.
Not only is there a litany of restaurants, stores and clubs littering the strip, but it also features high-end condominium complexes. Many A-list celebrities also reside in the Hollywood Hills, which are located just above the Sunset Strip. If you want the full Sunset Strip experience, your best bet is to employ some tour vans Los Angeles on your next visit.
The the 14th Annual Los Angeles Department of Water and Power Griffith Park Holiday Light Festival is always a sight to see! This magnificent display of lights along a one-mile segment of Crystal Springs Drive has become a holiday tradition that attracts more than half million visitors each year.
This festival symbolizes LADWP’s proud history and shared legacy of service to the people of the city. It is also made possible through the generous support of the Los Angeles Visitors and Convention Bureau (LA Inc.), the Los Angeles Department of Transportation, the Los Angeles Zoo, the Los Angeles World Airports, Autry National Center, Automobile Club of Southern California and CalTrans.
To demonstrate continuing commitment to a “greener” LA, the Holiday Light Festival will be a pedestrian only and “vehicle free” event from December 4 through December 17. Visitors may park at the L.A. Zoo parking lot. Parking will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Walkers are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes and to dress warmly to walk the full one-mile route each way. It is also recommended that walkers have outerwear, as it can get chilly. I have conducted many Los Angeles van tours, highlighting festival!
