Los Angeles Tour Guest Gets An Eyeful
Our tour guides have to remember that their guests are new to Los Angeles and not used to seeing sights around town that locals hardly notice. Take the winged walker above, for instance. Resting his wings between flights or just mindful of other pedestrians? We could say that this is something that only a private Los Angeles tour guest would see here in West Hollywood. However, the angel in America might also be an another overlooked exerciser in San Francisco, SoHo, Key West, Providence, Palm Beach, …
Our Private Tour Guests Want a Classy Halloween
One of our favorite West Hollywood restaurants is Fig & Olive on Melrose Place. They are hosting, along with Veuve Clicquot champagne a Halloween dinner party where you can dress to impress for fun. The posters from each of the Yelloween partners give all the details. Make your reservations now, get your costume together and prepare for a real Halloween treat.
West Hollywood, Hollywood, Beverly Hills – we tour in all these neighborhoods and keep track of what is happening there so that our guests can decide on things to do after their private Los Angeles tour.
Colorful Pacific Design Center Seen Best from Helicopter Tour
Our private Los Angeles tour guests cannot help but stare when we drive them past the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood. Three eye-catching glass buildings designed by César Pelli. Blue, green and red glass. Interconnected. But to really see them, the best view is aboard one of our helicopter adventure tours where our guests are treated to a the sight of the three extraordinary buildings beside one another like 3D puzzle pieces strewn into the orderliness of West Hollywood. Walking through the buildings is equally enjoyable, seeing the latest in interior design elements and concepts, furniture and appliances. We think of it more as a museum of colors, surfaces and house features than as a wholesale store for designers and builders. The fact that the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) has an outpost on the 14 acre grounds seems perfectly fitting. We like to drop in about lunch time to eat at one of Wolfgang Puck‘s two restaurants (Spectra and red|seven).
Laurel Hardware – A Los Angeles Tour Sight to See
Don’t let the sign fool you, the fixit problem you solve here is your appetite. The tools you work with are silverware. This rollicking part of Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood makes a great drive through on our private Los Angeles tours and at certain times when our guests are hungry we can make a meal break at any of the fine restaurants along the way. Laurel Hardware is one of the newest and most interesting. An eclectic brunch, lunch and dinner menu with designer cocktails and desserts, you don’t need a loose hinge to decide to join the ambience of the former hardware store in its new life as an elegant eatery in the heart of Los Angeles. Join us as we explore this neighborhood between Hollywood and Beverly Hills. Let’s do lunch!
Anticipating warmer weather and longer days (and Daylight Savings Time) we fully expect our private Los Angeles tour guests to be getting thirsty on our excursions around Hollywood and Beverly Hills. Our custom vehicles are equipped with drinks to be certain everyone stays well hydrated in our dry climate (and snacks to go with the drinks) but we don’t carry milkshakes. For that we recommend stopping at Millions of Milkshakes on Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood. Here our guests can design their own dairy (or non-dairy) concoction for nutrition or simply indulgence. It’s a milkshake lover’s heaven.
West Hollywood really offers some wild new architecture. The Pacific Design Center (PDC) has always been eyecatching with its blue and green geometrically shaped glass buildings and the fanciful and appropriate public art displayed throughout the property. Now the red structure is complete and truly complements the existing structures. Our private luxury sightseeing tours through Hollywood and Beverly Hills reveal lots of interesting Los Angeles architecture. The Pacific Design Center certainly piques our guests’ attention when we pass by or fly over (you can’t miss the PDC on a helicopter tour of Los Angeles).
The new West Hollywood Public Library across the street does not turn heads in the same way though inside the building you are treated to a masterfully designed and practical use of space dedicated to reading, information and the exchange of ideas. More important, you can look up from your text and enjoy the sight of the Pacific Design Center.
