A Starline Hop-On Hop-Off tour is an excellent way to earmark where to shop, eat and drink in LA. There are four city loops – Santa Monica and West LA, Hollywood/West Hollywood and Beverly Hills, Downtown LA, Venice Beach and Marina del Rey – and two connector routes – Fisherman’s Wharf in Marina del Rey to the LAX hotels and Hollywood to Universal Studios. As the tours run for a couple of hours each, consider opting for a 48-hour ticket… unless you're visiting Universal Studios, in which case the 72-hour ticket may be the better choice. Starline also runs specialty tours including a new three-hour Movie Locations Tour in partnership with Turner Classic Movies (TCM), a TMZ Hollywood tour for fans of the so-named gossip celebrity program and the Movie Stars’ Homes Tour. Tech tip: the very convenient GPS function is accessible via text, web or phone and provides the approx. time of bus arrivals at every stop. Also, the multilingual audio guide caters to nine languages.
A neighbourhood loved for its association with the film industry, Hollywood draws crowds for the Walk of Fame, Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, Dolby Theatre and a variety of retail offerings. Plenty of tours start and end here. The Hollywood Hills are home to many celebrities.
