What you'll do

It will be my pleasure to highlight the landmarks and main sights in the Heart of Hollywood on our 1.5 hour excursion. We will enjoy the main attractions and historic landmarks in Hollywood from a historic and entertainment perspective by commentary, pictures and photo opportunities. We will meet just outside the front doors of the Roosevelt Hotel which was home of the first ever Academy Awards Ceremony. We will then move along the Walk of Fame before arriving at the TCL Chinese Theatre, where we will view the famed hand and footprints of favorite movie stars dating back to 1927. We will continue along the Walk of Fame to view the exterior of the Dolby Theatre which is where the Academy Awards are currently held. We will continue into the courtyard of the Hollywood & Highland shopping center to view Babylon Court, the El Capitan Theatre, and the Road to Hollywood. At this time we will have a view of the famed Hollywood Sign. We will then head back to the Roosevelt Hotel to conclude our tour. All of these landmarks come to life with stories about how they shaped Hollywood the community and the growing film industry. Enough time will be spent at each location to allow for photos and questions. You will leave with a much greater understanding of how each landmark helped shape what we know as the Heart of Hollywood!

Trish

I have been an independent tour guide since 2009 after careers as an elementary teacher, focus group moderator, special events coordinator and crew member aboard major cruise lines. I have a certification from the International Tour Management Institute. I created and own my tour business since 2010 and am proud to have 800+ reviews on Trip Advisor. My strengths are my friendly disposition, my love of meeting people of all ages, my love of the city of Los Angeles and my experience of knowing what guests enjoy most on their adventure. I make it my goal to ensure the history of this city comes alive, regardless of guest age and how many times you have visited. I keep up on the latest local events so that my commentary is current and relevant. Los Angeles is a great city and I am honored to showcase all she has to offer.
