Rockin Hollywood Tours carts Tinseltown enthusiasts through star-dotted territory during two-hour outings, covering dozens of illustrious sites and landmarks along the way. Knowledgeable guides churn out Tinseltown facts and history as the open-air vehicle chugs through Hollywood and allow a backup soundtrack to chime in with details about each point of interest on the itinerary. While staying alert for any sign of escaped MGM lions, riders can enjoy the sights and sounds of celebrity-packed neighborhoods that include cribs belonging to Julia Roberts, Cher, and Ringo Starr. They can also keep their cell phones and fanny-pack video cameras peeled for glimpses of Waldo as they journey through timeless locales such as Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, and the Sunset Strip. Buses leave every 45 minutes; all-day parking is available nearby for $5–$10.
Rockin Hollywood Tours
Buses coast down sunny avenues lined with palm trees and pastel-colored buildings. Many of these buildings boast complex histories—as music venues, film studios, boarding schools for stuntmen, and more—that synced audio tracks and charming tour guides divulge during Rockin Hollywood Tours' interactive excursions. On each tour, groups pass more than 70 sites around the streets of Bel Air, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, and West Hollywood. Guides expound on well-known landmarks such as the Hollywood sign, the Jim Henson Company lot (the former home of Charlie Chaplin Studios), and the Playboy Mansion. They also lead riders through musical history and Elton John's personal diaries as they pass venues including Whisky A Go Go, the Troubadour, and Capitol Records studios. Driving through residential areas, guides also point out the past and present homes of celebrities such as Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson, Eddie Murphy, and Nicolas Cage.
