Was so excited to go on this tour especially after reading recent reviews just a couple days before we were taking the trip, but we were very disappointed by the whole experience! First, the tour started late, the bus wasn’t there on time; then the bus was not as described in the description on the website or in the reviews, there were obstructions by window posts even though there was no window glass, and people who were stuck sitting in middle seats were unleashed to see or take pictures. Next we were taken straight to the designated spot to take pictures of the Hollywood sign, our time was cut short because we were already behind; also you are so far away from the sign it’s just a white blur in your pictures! The view of the city from this spot is beautiful but there was not time to enjoy it with such an extremely short amount of time and having to stand in line to take a picture with the sign, there were 3 other tour buses at this spot at the same time. After piling back in the bus, we made our way up Mullholland Dr, our driver pointed out some famous peoples houses, slowed down at a couple of them, even stopped momentarily at a few but was in such a rush by the time you had your picture set up to take over peoples heads next to you and around the window posts he would speed off. We made our way to Beverly Hills and Rodeo Dr which was probably the best part of the tour, and then made the drive back to the starting point. The tour description said you could choose to stay and explore the walk of fame, that wasn’t even an option, so we had to walk back over to Hollywood Blvd from the tour office, which we were being rushed off the bus so they could get the next tour on. I’m glad this wasn’t one of the more expensive tours, but it just goes to show you get what you pay for!

It’s absolutely a must have! To be fair, it’s not really that what we expected to see but worth. It’s just a shopping street where you find the stars on the pavement wherever you walk. It’s also quite expensive but the feeling you get is fantastic. Walking down the Walk of Fame! Amazing! The street life actually hit us. You boys were playing music, convinced us to sing and to dance with them, fantastic! They made our day! We also did not expect sooo much fun on this busy strip!

This was high on my must see list for our Los Angeles visit. We ended up walking the entire walk of fame. Come wearing comfortable shoes and have some water.

This is not the gleaming polished walk you see on TV at new star reveals. This is a high traffic sidewalk and looks like it, at least did by midday when we visited. You also have to contend with a thousand others jostling to see their favorite stars star. And 90% of them are oblivious to you and the fact you are trying to snap a picture of Snoopy’s star.

There are maps ($10) to show you where the various stars are located for those on a schedule. There are public parking lots nearby .

Be prepared to be approached by hawkers trying to get you on a tour of the stars (every 100 feet). There is also some very interesting people and shops lining the walk of fame.

My daughter thought it would be fun to see the Walk of Fame. It's basically streets lined w/ souvenir shops, bar restaurants, street performers, vendor tables a few homeless people. Watch your valuables here! I saw a few people eyeball tourist backpacks. I would visit definitely morning to mid afternoon esp with kids/ teens as early evening it starts to get more crowded & a little rowdy.
We left at 6 PM as street performers & followers we're covering the Walk of Fame stars and you couldn't read the names nor would dare ask somebody to move . The tables and booths were set up along the streets which made it incapable of reading the stars.
I'm not sure how it gets later on in the night, can only imagine. If you grew up in a big city this probably would be OK for you but if you were from a smaller town, it would probably be a little uncomfortable. The Dolby Theater & its shopping area is nice to see. I was expecting the sidewalks to be pristine but in my opinion, a little shabby. We took a taxi back to our hotel as I didn't feel comfortable walking with my teens alone just before dusk back to hotel. While in traffic in the taxi, we saw a police officer holler at somebody to stop and they kept running as 4 police officers were chasing him and two police cars in persuit -think we left a good time:)

Come early in the morning before the crowds make it impossible to see all the stars on the sidewalk and by early I mean 7am. You will have the place to yourself and can avoid the druggies and what not. Snap photos of your favorite stars and you can say you did Hollywood splendid! Because a trip to Hollywood just isn't complete without seeing the Walk of fame, ya know?
