Traveler Tips

For the price, it's totally worth getting the exercise and meeting some cool people.
The hike was not so hard but it took a while, which would have been boring with no guide.

Amazing trip
Patrick_L, Sep 2023
Amazing trip, and a amazing guide named Katy. The view was fantastic, the hike was great, and Katy had information about anything. She even brought water even though it wasn’t included. Big + on a 38 degree Celsius day 😊

So glad you enjoyed and stayed cool!
It was cool seeing Mick...
Cindy_D, Aug 2023
It was cool seeing Mick Jagger’s first house! Parking was easy, too, and the path was mostly paved and really easy to follow.
Response from Host, Aug 2023
Very cool part of the tour! Thanks for the great review!
The unforgettable Hollywood hike
Ben_T, Aug 2023
Standing on top of the hill behind the Hollywood sign with my family and looking at the entire LA was priceless. I won’t forget my kids smile when we first got close to the Hollywood sign. Chris was an amazing tour guide, he deserves a big raise!
Response from Host, Aug 2023
We love hearing this! Thank you for this incredibly kind review. We're so glad you and your family had fun with Chris!
Good tour
Elaine_H, Jun 2023
Chris was a knowledgeable guide and let us decide whether to do the whole 3 hour hike or cut it short. We opted to cut it short, so he walked back with us.
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Chris is pretty great, if we do say so ourselves! Glad you had fun! Hope to see you again in LA soon!
Wonderful experience
hsinyi_h, Jun 2023
Jose was a really great tour guide. He told us a lot of stories, taking care of everyone, this was a wonderful experience!
Response from Host, Jun 2023
We're glad you enjoyed your tour with Josh! Hope to see you again soon!
Wonderful experience
Leslie_S, May 2023
Mark was a great guide - he was very knowledgeable about the sign and its history, and the history of the area and the film industry. We were lucky enough to have pretty much a private tour. Four people were on the tour but we were the only two that went to the top, behind the sign. The weather was decent so the view was great and Mark took wonderful pics of us. All in all a great experience.
Response from Host, Jun 2023
So glad you enjoyed your hike with Mark! Thanks for touring with us, hope to see you again soon!
Sarah is the BEST
Hearher_B, May 2023
Sarah was hands down fantastic on this Hollywood Hills tour!!! Extremely knowledgeable and entertaining, while going into great detail on the rich history. I would recommend this tour to natives and tourists.

Great tour with great tour guide Josh
Noelle_v, May 2023
Josh was a great tour guide! He has great stories to tell about the history of Griffith Park, the Hollywood Sign and the area and has a great way of telling the story! Absolutely loved the tour!
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Thanks for the nice review! Glad you enjoyed!
Natalia_V, May 2023
It was easy to book so 5 stars for that The customer service rep gave us incorrect name of the guide 3 times so we almost missed our trip. My friend had an asthma attack going up the hill , instructor didn’t even come down to check what happened to 3 people from her group so no i don’t recommend. It’s unsafe no one will care if u can’t keep up
Response from Host, May 2023
Thanks for leaving feedback about your experience, but according to our call logs your feedback is not fairly representative of the experience we provided. You reached out to us 8 times the morning of your experience because you were not going to make it to the meeting point for your ticketed time. As we always offer, you were given the chance to reschedule to our afternoon tour for no extra charge, but you insisted on sticking with your morning start time. We also cautioned multiple times that the tour does leave promptly at the ticketed time whether or not everyone is there because there are multiple guests that all have their own schedules they are trying to stick to. As you arrived at the meeting point after the tour departed, it sounds like you then tried to run to catch up to catch the guide (who would not have known to go back for guests whom she had all reason to believe we not joining the tour as they missed the start). With all that said, we don’t want you to leave LA with a bad taste in your mouth, so we’d love to host you on one of our other tours so you can see more of the city without forcing yourself to be so rushed. Please reach out to us directly and we will set this up for you.
Just I paid the money that’s it.
Abdullah_M, May 2023
There was not any memorable parts. I did it all by my self. I arrived a little bit late. Then I messaged them where are you so I can join. After that I’ve arrived at the top of the hill they message me back and they were 23 minutes away from me.
Emily da best!
Aditya_S, Apr 2023
Emily was amazing! Not only was she full of local knowledge about the Hollywood sign and Griffith park, but also about the LA area, plus she presented everything in an extremely lively and fun way!
Response from Host, May 2023
Lively and fun are two words we LOVE to hear about our guides! Thanks Aditya!
Fantastic hike with fantastic guide
Bergen_J, Apr 2023
I would 100% recommend this hike! I thought it would be a basic hike but it was quite a good workout! Noelle made it so fun with her stories about LA and celebrities and suggestions around the city. She is very knowledgeable and really helped set the scene throughout the hike. She has an amazing personality. Great views of the city and landmarks and AMAZING PICTURES!!!
Our Hollywood hike
Rosemary_F, Apr 2023
Our hike was to start at 4:15, we were there at 3:40 according to google maps we followed the directions to meet, there was also an undisclosed location to park your car so we did but the goggle maps took us around these narrow streets and a habitat of private homes but when we asked around we were told it must be up the street we walked about a mile now time was getting closer and no cell service to call omg! Well we missed our guide! My grandson has ASD and was vivid that we walked so far and missed our guide on our way back to car he threw his iPhone and broke it! OMG so we head back home 3 hour trip. He was left very disappointed
Response from Host, May 2023
Thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback, though it unfortunately sounds like your experience was impacted by Google maps and not at all indicative of your interactions with our team as many other guests that day found the meeting point without issue. Our meeting point address is CLEARLY stated on your ticket complete with a description of the area and details about the available street parking. And while we sympathize with your son's frustration, it's hardly fair to lay the blame of him throwing his phone and breaking it at our feet. With that said, we want you to have a positive memory about your time in LA, so we'd like to host you on one of our other LA Tours before you leave. Please reach out to us directly so we can set this up.
Brilliant hike
Sarah_L, Apr 2023
Erik was brilliant we highly recommend doing this hike we went to the top just above the Hollywood sign. Allow about 3 hours in total well worth it.
Behind the Hollywood
Rishab_G, Apr 2023
The tour was really amazing with fantastic views plus the information regarding the mountains and the canyons ☺️ The tour guide Chris was really nice as well and plus he becomes a selfie stick for you to take your pictures which makes him really nice ☺️ You really get to see what Hollywood looks like from very close. The only thing you cannot touch it ….Hahhahahah but still it’s worth experiencing one time ☺️ And don’t worry it’s not that a big hike Go to the top, that’s my suggestion for everyone
Great tour!
Jeffrey_R, Apr 2023
This was my fav tour that we did in LA. The tour guide was also the best we had and I’m so mad at myself for not remembering his name. Maybe it was Matt? The tour was a lot of uphill walking but definitely doable. The guide is patient and knowledgeable and takes plenty of pics for you along the way.
Noelle is the best!
sonia_b, Apr 2023
Noelle was AMAZING. So grateful that we had her as our awesome guide. She was super funny and knowledgeable. Her photography skills are first class too!! It was a really nice intro hike. Nothing too steep. And not too long. Lots of stops along the route to make sure that everyone could be included. All in all I would highly recommend.
Spring break
Ashley_K, Mar 2023
Sun finally came out for our walk! Chris our guide was great. We did the 1/2 way point and that had great views of the sign.
A great morning hike ! Very memorable.
Nicky_L, Mar 2023
I had a great time with Chris who was a superb guide. We were in a small group that was fantastic. I found the journey up to the top to be so worth it and we got up and down with no troubles. Truly stunning up there on the most beautiful day. Chris was warm, kind and very informative.
