Tour Code: LAX/LA1
People either love it or hate it—but no matter what, Los Angeles makes no excuses and changes itself for no one. And you've got to admire that. Made up of dozens of communities, there is not one single experience that can sum up the life and heartbeat of this city. But what can be noted about Los Angeles by both tourists and locals alike is the hustle-and-bustle lifestyle, the vibrant and unique neighborhoods, and the extreme diversity that sets it apart from any other city. From the eternal sunshine and Hollywood glitz to all the small communities with their own distinct cultural personalities, this City of Angels will forever be many things to many people.

We will depart from the hotel and travel to the city of Santa Monica. This famous beach town is known for its beautiful views and has been the shooting location of hundreds of Hollywood films.
Santa Monica promises the picture-postcard Los Angeles experience with its wide, palm-tree-lined beaches and stunning sunsets over the Pacific Ocean. What started as a seaside retreat in the early 20th century has today settled into a model city (clean, walkable, and eco-conscious) with a laidback urbanity that attracts artistic types, young professionals, affluent families, and celebrities as much as surfers and beach bunnies. A good deal of the action happens downtown on the pedestrian-friendly Third Street Promenade–lined with shops, restaurants, and street performers–and the tourist-flooded Santa Monica Pier, while Montana Avenue and Main Street are more low-key shopping satellites that cater to locals.
Walk along the Santa Monica Pier and enjoy views of the Pacific Ocean.
Next we will head to Beverly Hills via Rodeo Drive
This world-famous city with its world-famous zip code is synonymous with wealth, status, and celebrity. The understated elegance and grace of the residential neighborhoods are balanced out by Rodeo Drive , which offers some of the finest—and most expensive—shopping in the world.
Celebrities and the ultra-rich frequent this shopping area, making it one of the most glamorous destinations in the world. After leaving the wealthy enclave, we will head to the Original Los Angeles Farmers Market, originating in 1934. You will find many international cuisine choices among the delicious California grown produce.
Los Angeles Farmers Market
The Farmers' Market area is really two things: the original Farmers Market, an outdoor eating and shopping area begun by farmers during the depression and The Grove which is an open air mall. The Farmers Market is next to CBS Television City (studios) where "The Price is Right" and many other shows are taped.
After lunch, we will head up the hills above Los Angeles for spectacular views of the city and the iconic Hollywood sign. We will continue on to Olvera Street. This 200 year old street is a colorful Mexican market place and is known to host Mexican music, dancing and holiday celebrations.
The big sign just about says it all: Hollywood is glitz, glamor, and unavoidable. While many people are critical of Hollywood, they still can't help but satiate their curiosity by visiting this busy area. The center of things is, without a doubt, Hollywood Boulevard, location of world-famous tourist spots including Grauman's Chinese Theater , the Hollywood Walk of Fame , and the Kodak Theatre where the Oscars are now held annually.
After, we will stop in downtown L.A. at the Staples Center, home to the Los Angeles Lakers, the world champion basketball team. Finally, we will transfer you back to hotel.
