The Best Hollywood Tours and Sightseeing
Los Angeles is one of the most famous and visited cities in the world, and the metro area’s also dizzyingly vast: Even if you’ve been here before, it can be hard to wrap your head around the geography and plan out a sightseeing itinerary. Well, the good news is that Hotel Amarano here in Downtown Burbank (the Media Capital of the World) gives you the absolute perfect boutique accommodations for exploring Greater L.A., and the other good news is that great tours of this global city abound—including the varied itineraries offered by Tour Beaver!
Earlier this year here at the Hotel Amarano blog we spotlighted a few awesome tours the company leads, including Madame Tussaud’s Hollywood, the Dearly Departed Tragical History Tour, and the Movie Star Homes Van Tour. Today we’re going to shift the focus to a few other Tour Beaver L.A. outings you’ll definitely want to consider for guided adventures in the City of Angels!
There aren’t too many more famous zip codes in America than 90210. Explore the fabled celebrity stomping ground of Beverly Hills by foot—obviously the deeper, more immersive means of sightseeing compared to the out-the-car-window alternative. Check out such iconic attractions as the glitzy shopping hub of Rodeo Drive and Santa Monica Boulevard, plus more than a few homes of the rich and famous.
One of the absolute treasures of Los Angeles has nothing to do with legends of screen and stage: the La Brea Tar Pits, an unparalleled fossil repository of Pleistocene beasts that paint a very different picture of our neck of the woods. This tour gives you the chance to learn more about the vanished Los Angeles ecosystem—populated by such imposing creatures as mammoths, giant ground sloths, dire wolves, sabretooths, short-faced bears, and American lions—on the zippy two wheels of a Segway.
If you’d describe yourself as a foodie, this is the Los Angeles foray for you. Eat your way through the flavors of the city—and digest a little history as you go—via the renowned Los Angeles Original Farmers Market, established back in 1934.
Hit the pavement in the center of the pop-culture universe with a Hollywood Walking Tour, which goes beyond the here and now to unveil the astonishingly rich layers of this gilded and star-powered neighborhood’s history.
