Hollywood Homes Tour

Hollywood Homes Tour


Want to see how the stars live? Hop on a home tour and take a trip around the neighborhoods of your favorite celebrities. A number of tour companies operate movie star home tours and most of them offer pick-up locations in the San Fernando Valley, predominately in North Hollywood. Hollywood Tours (www.hollywoodtours.us) and Los Angeles Tours (www.losangelestours.us) both offer pick-ups in North Hollywood. Other companies, like Starline Tours (www.starlinetours.com) will require you to get yourself over the hill, but that’s an easy trip on the Metro from North Hollywood or Universal City Station.

Once on board your choice of a double-decker bus, single-level coach or other transportation option, you’ll head out on a driving tour that will take you to approximately 45 homes. You might see the current homes of Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Orlando Bloom and Tom Cruise. As well as the former homes of classic stars like Lucille Ball, Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra. In addition, you’ll get an overview of Hollywood, including a view of the Hollywood Sign, a trip past Grauman’s Chinese Theater and down Hollywood Blvd’s Walk of Fame.

These companies offer a variety of tours, but they generally last 2-3 hours. In the process, you’ll also head out of the crux of Hollywood and down some other famous streets like the Sunset Strip and see locales that were crucial to the history of music, like The Whiskey A Go Go, the Viper Room, once owned by Johnny Depp and The House of Blues. And no trip would be complete without a jaunt down the world famous, glittering shopping mecca of Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. You’ll want to bring your sunblock if you’re on an open air vehicle. And don’t forget your camera! You never know who you might see headed out to get the morning paper!
