Explore the best of Hollywood through sightseeing and food tasting
Hollywood is known as the entertainment capital of the world but is quickly becoming popular in the culinary world too. This unique tour combines the best of Hollywood's sightseeing attractions and special food tastings. Your tour guide will walk with you down Hollywood Boulevard while sharing historical tidbits about the Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre, Dolby Theatre and Hollywood & Highland complex. After you have captured some memorable photographs, you will get onboard your private transportation and your driver will guide you down the most popular streets including Hollywood Boulevard, Melrose Avenue and the Sunset Strip. During this time you'll view more famous landmarks like the Capitol Records Building, Paramount Pictures and the Chateau Marmont and also be treated to five tastings at some of Hollywood's most interesting eateries, with both savory and sweet foods presented, along with a few specialty beverages.

The sites and bites tour of Hollywood gave us a real flavour of Hollywood. It was a really nice mix on our tour and we got to visit local eateries we would not otherwise have ventured in. Trish our guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the area and clearly puts the time in to make sure she is excellent at her job. She was very friendly and good company. We would highly recommend this trip.
