Extensions

Warner Bros Hollywood Studio Tour and Movies Stars Homes Tour

With so many exciting things to see and do in and around Los Angeles, it can be hard to fit everything in. This inspired combo is ideal if you’d like a memorable flavour of Tinseltown in a single day. It combines a unique tour of the working Warner Bros Studio lot – home to everything from the DC movies to The Big Bang Theory and Ellen – with a brilliantly entertaining tour of Hollywood stars’ homes that’s practically a show in its own right. So grab a coffee at the Central Perk from Friends, take a selfie in Harley Quinn’s cell from Suicide Squad and experience the process of taking a script to screen, before seeing how (and where) the A-list lives. 

Hollywood Hills Hiking Tour

Walking in the Hollywood Hills is an LA rite of passage, and this guided two-and-half-hour hike takes you into this arresting natural environment en route to spectacular 360-degree views over the City of Angels and the San Fernando Valley. You can take the tour in the morning or as the sun begins to set and, as you walk, your entertaining and fact-filled guide will give you an insider’s history of the area, sharing clips from movies and series filmed in the locations you visit. There’s a selfie-op with the Hollywood sign, and you’ll crest the Hills at the world famous Griffith Park Observatory.

San Diego Zoo

San Diego Zoo may well be the most well-known in the world. Committed to conservation and respecting its furry, scaly, feathered and leathery residents with space and authentic habitats, it’s an object lesson in how to educate and delight visitors while working to protect and nurture species from around the globe. The result is a remarkable day out, full of surprising animal encounters, a range of optional, guide-led tours, entertaining and informative shows, and play areas for your little monkeys to clamber over while you soak in the Californian sun.
