Private Total LA Tour

This private, full-day tour option will have you exploring on foot and by public transit as you ride alongside locals and get a feel for what it really means to live in Los Angeles. Yes, you will see the Hollywood sign, Rodeo Drive, and Venice Beach (can you really come to LA and not see them?), but you will also visit a hidden garden oasis on Hollywood Boulevard, learn about film and television history at a local media museum, and ride a bike along the Pacific Ocean's famous beach path.

Your private tour guide is a local, professional and knowledgeable escort who can adjust the itinerary to suit you, just let them know what you're looking for and if possible they will do their best to show you the special places you are dying to visit.

Begin in Hollywood, LA's birthplace of film, and see the Chinese Theater and Dolby Theater with their iconic Hollywood sign backdrop. Glimpse your favorite stars on the Walk of Fame or maybe even in person! Once you've seen what the strip has to offer, make your way off the beaten path to Hollywood local hotspots, to the hidden gems even some residents don't know about, like a secret garden right on Hollywood Boulevard. Then it's time to jump on a local bus for a quick ride down Fairfax to an LA institution that's over 80 years old. The Original Farmers Market began in 1934 as a makeshift gathering of local farmers selling fresh produce out of trucks. Today, the market is a melting pot of tantalizing food stalls, old-fashioned vendors, fresh produce, and lots of local atmosphere!

A tasty lunch break, locals-style, will await you (lunch is at your own cost, giving you full freedom to choose from the vast array of delicious foods available). After your lunch break, take a quick bus to the heart of Beverly Hills. Taste a treat from a world-famous cupcake bakery, then check out whatever costumes, sets, and props are on display at a local media museum. Finally, stroll one of the most renowned shopping streets in the world, Rodeo Drive. Leaving Beverly Hills, ride through West Los Angeles, passing through the high-rises and UCLA neighborhoods of Westwood and Brentwood. You can also use this chance for a quick nap or to strike up a conversation with a local.

Once in Santa Monica, take in a view of the Pacific then set off for a quintessential LA experience on a laidback Cali beach cruiser (bicycle). Soak up the local culture, SoCal sun, and Pacific breeze on this leisurely 10-kilometer ride from the Santa Monica Pier to lively Venice Beach, home to Muscle Beach, funky shops, and eclectic locals. This easy pedal along the beach is a rewarding end to your LA getaway. Finish your Los Angeles city tour at the Santa Monica Pier, where your guide will assist you with finding public transportation or a taxi to your next destination. Or, if you still have the energy, stay and explore Santa Monica's Third Street Promenade and vibrant nightlife.

This is a day you will always remember as you get up-close and personal with some of the very sites you have always heard about or seen in the movies, all along the way you will certainly snap Insta-worthy pics to add to your site and make your friends and family jealous!
