My Experience
, Jan 2022
The Hollywood Walk of Fame and the Roosevelt Hotel were great. The Chinese and Egyptian theaters were a disappointment not the fault of the Viator tour guide. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. I really wanted to see the inside of at least one vintage Hollywood movie house, so I was disappointed in the end.

Hi Anthony, thanks so much for coming on the tour and so glad you liked Oliver. Totally understand that you wanted to see one of the movie palaces on Hollywood Boulevard, but we replied to your message asking about them to tell you that we don't go inside. It's also listed as an exclusion here on TripAdvisor/Viator, so we're not sure why you were expecting to see inside them. As we explained in the message you can get tickets for the Chinese Theatre tour, which is the last stop on our tour and which begins right afterwards. We hope you made the most of it :-).
Our tour guide was great...

Our tour guide was great at sharing interesting historical info. He covered topics that were all new to us - capturing the true founding of the area and the people who helped build this town.
