  • The bus stops for about 45 minutes at each location, so you’ll have plenty of time to do some exploring on your own.

  • Plan to spend the whole day with us! The tour will last about 7.5 hours.

The Grove

We’ll stop for lunch and dine al fresco at the Original Farmers Market at the Grove. The historic L.A. landmark opened in 1934 and today features more than 100 vendors including plenty of delicious eateries.

Griffith Park 

A favorite among locals and visitors alike, Griffith Park and Observatory sits high in the hills offering panoramic views of the city, hiking trails, and views of the world-famous Hollywood sign.

Hollywood Walk of Fame 

Out LA City Tour wouldn’t be one of the best tours in Los Angeles if it didn’t include a little brush with stardom, which you’ll feel when we stop in Hollywood. Stroll the Hollywood Walk of Fame to find your favorite actor’s star, see where The Oscars take place at the Dolby Theatre and stop for a photo in front of the TCL Chinese Theater.

After our last tour stop together, we’ll take you safely back to the same place we picked you up, passing by a few more points of interest on the way home.
