About the tour

Let’s take a stroll down Hollywood Blvd, the most famous sidewalk in the world and meet the “stars!” Your guide Linda will begin the tour at the La Brea Gateway, a sculpture by Catherine Hardwick that pays homage to legendary women of Hollywood. As you travel down the boulevard you’ll get to catch glimpses of old Hollywood alongside today’s current scene. Grand movie palaces, restaurants, and other architectural sites will be highlighted and the history behind them as well. Learn about Hollywood’s golden era through stories from the Roosevelt Hotel, Grauman’s Chinese Theater, CC Brown’s Ice Cream, Max Factor’s legendary makeup studio and Musso & Frank’s iconic restaurant where our tour will end.


Meet your local guide

Linda

Linda was born and raised in Southern California and loves to share its many adventures with others. Having traveled North America extensively as a professional musical theater actress, her favorite pastime is getting outside and “walking and gawking;” meeting new people, trying new foods, learning about different cultures. Especially in the car-centric city of Los Angeles, taking a walk gives you a different perspective on this complex and historically fascinating town. LA, and its surrounding areas, is a quilt of international neighborhoods that Linda can’t wait to share with you!

Linda has been guiding since Aug 2020

Although we had to leave the tour prematurely for other reasons, we thought Linda was really enthusiastic and gave a vibrancy to the tour as far as we followed it.
