Awesome Hollywood stories telling tour
By Nohead Verified Reviewer from Montreal, QC on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Behind-the-Scenes Hollywood Tour by Red Line:

Highly recommend if you like stories about Hollywood history and Hollywood stars. Our guide Micheal is a terrific narrator, he has probably told the stories hundreds of times, but he still kept us captivated. It's a 75 minutes walking tour, but it's only 15 minutes' walk and listening stories for the rest of the time. Yes there are Hollywood historic information, anecdotes about stars, stories about Hollywood boulevard theatres, but the narrator makes it as a whole "ensemble". My girlfriend and I had a great time. It's probably the tour that I learned the most compared to other tours in the area. It's a great tour for LA GO card!

Comments about Smart Destinations Behind-the-Scenes Hollywood Tour by Red Line:

Not really a "Behind-the-Scenes tour since most of it takes place in public places. However still well worth the time and due to some awesome pictures the guide shares along the way a lot of fun. The guide was indeed very well informed and could answer just about any question. A great option to orient yourself quickly to the area. Our cards were easily scanned and no hassle.

Comments about Smart Destinations Behind-the-Scenes Hollywood Tour by Red Line:

My friend and I have literally just returned from the 10am Red Line Hollywood Behind-the-Scenes tour as I write this. It was awesome!Our guide was great and able to answer all the questions we fired at him about the Oscars and the theaters. The tour is a great concise introduction to the history and current status of the landmarks. We covered the Egyptian Theatre, Chinese Theatre, Kodak Theatre, Hollywood Sign (viewed from the Hollywood and Highland Centre), Roosevelt Hotel, El Capitan and the Walk of Fame . Highly recommended!
