A very enriching hike tour!
Beanca_M, May 2022
My friend and I were the only ones in that hiking tour that Saturday so we were in for a solo treat! Matt was a really really good tour guide and we learned a lot about the history of the Griffith Park, Griffith J. Griffith and the Los Feliz Village. I honestly just came here to visit the Griffith Observatory but I never knew there was a bright (and dark) history behind it! Hike was not so bad! Just a lot of incline. You were so great to us Matt!!! Thank you for sharing your stories and time with us. We really had fun!

Fantastic and Friendly
Emma_D, Mar 2022
Great tour guide who was very knowledgeable on the area and very friendly. Walk was about 2 hours 30 minutes and took in some amazing views over LA whilst we walked up to iconic Griffith Observatory. View the Hollywood sign at the top. We also wandered into a local housing area to view the amazing houses and to hear stories about the residents and history of some of the houses. I would highly recommend.
Hike at Griffith Park is awesome!

Gorgeous Views, Stunning Houses, and a Deer!

Amazing tour! Paul was super knowledgeable and well-spoken. He’s also just a very nice person, and it was an absolute pleasure to have him as the tour guide. Wait until you see the views and houses on this tour! And to cap it all off, we saw a deer scurry off the path and down the mountainside as we headed back down. Just a great experience.

My boyfriend and I wanted to try something new on our recent trip to LA. We found this on google and decided why not? I'm glad we decided to do it, our tour guide was so great and informative. We actually got more than we expected. She showed us some real hidden gems in Los Feliz. The hike was a little steep in the beginning but the higher you go the more level it is. We got some great pictures. We decided to stay at the observatory and hike down later.

This was a great tour. Lisa was a fantastic guide and historian. Very natural. You will need some stamina for this, but worth every step. A nice way to see the Park, and get some history on the Hollywood sign, as well as architecture, animal and wild life in the area, city scapes/photos. I would highly recommend.

My wife and I enjoyed this guided tour up to Griffith observatory. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. Although she took us up public paths that were accessible to anyone, it was nice to have commentary and point out sights that we might have missed without her guidance.

My girlfriend and I enjoyed this tour very much. Lisa the tour guide was excellent. That day was very hot. She was there early and waiting for us. After we met up she went into the coffe shop and bought us cold water. She guided us through the area that we wouldn't have known if we were going on ourselves. She explained the area very well. We saw amazing houses and spectacular views.

This was a great tour to see the Hollywood sign, Griffith park and the Griffith observatory. The tour walks through neighborhoods seeing some cool houses. Our tour guide, Alex, was great! He gave us lots of information about the city and the sights we were seeing. Additionally, he gave us suggestions on other things to do in and around LA. Great tour with a great tour guide!
