In 1935, an audacious Hollywood chauffeur had the idea to organize trips for tourists who were in town and hoping to see the homes of that era's biggest stars. More than 80 years later, Starline Tours of Hollywood continues to peel back Tinseltown's corners to reveal its glitzy gems and iconic sites.
Today, the company engineers numerous signature tours, as well as multilingual tours, excursions to local theme parks, and trips to the beach to explore the Pacific coastline. Of course, those signature tours remain Starline's biggest draw—read on to learn a bit more about two of the company's offerings:
Celebrity Home Tour: This tour whisks passengers through the city's most exclusive neighborhoods while showcasing opulent estates owned by the world's biggest stars. The tour cruises through Beverly Hills, Hollywood Hills, and more, providing looks at the current and former homes of everyone from Tom Cruise and Ellen DeGeneres to Jennifer Aniston and Simon Cowell.
The Grand Tour of Los Angeles: Grand, indeed—this 5.5-hour journey offers a comprehensive look at Los Angeles, including moviemaking landmarks and opulent residential neighborhoods. Sites include The Hollywood sign, La Brea tar pits, Olvera Street, Walt Disney Concert Hall, and many more.
