Crusing Hollywood with Rockin Hollywood Tours Nov 11, 2011
I stumbled into these guys as I was walking by their little stand on Hollywood Boulevard. I was actually on my way to catch another tour with another company, but the sales person noticed that I was a little curious and he approached me and did a heck of a job selling me the tour. The tour lasted about a couple of hours. The guide/driver was an LA native, very entertaining, and very knowledgeable of useless celebrity stories.
The first stop was an observation point along the famous Mulholland drive. It had a great view from the city and the Hollywood sign. He then took us along Sunset Boulevard, where he amused us with stories of celebrities that took place in many of the establishments along the route. You know, like Lindsey Lohan’s no so secret hide-out and such. Most of the tour took place driving along the streets of Beverly Hills where he showed us a bunch of celebrity houses. Julia Robert’s house was pretty impressive, Courtney Cox’s? Not so much. There were a lot of them so after a while you start losing interest on who lives where. Finally, Beverly Hills, the town, not the neighborhood. It was pretty, but besides a lot of very expensive stores and restaurants, there was not much to see.
Overall, and considering that I got a discount ( I paid only $20) because I almost walked away from the sales person, I think the tour was good, but not great. The weather was absolutely perfect and that helped a lot. Did I mention that the van was topless? There are lots of these companies along Hollywood boulevard and I got the impression that the competition between tem can be fierce, so I recommend taking to several of them to see if you can land a good deal. They are usually a block or so away from each other.
