This particular road sign is increasingly popular around Hollywood these days. Understandably there are neighborhoods and neighbors who dislike the convoys of tour buses chugging up and down their streets in an effort to get their customers to a good vantage point to see the famous Hollywood Sign. We sympathize as we ourselves are neighbors in Hollywood and find ourselves sitting in tourist traffic when we have important errands to run. Keeping that in mind we avoid the most traveled routes when we can and take advantage of a smaller vehicle (our luxury SUVs only carry six passengers) and our intimate knowledge of the roads and paths all through the Hollywood Hills. We drive as close as we can and walk the rest of the way if our guests are willing. We even encourage our hiking tours to enjoy a walk up a dusty service road along the side of Mt. Lee that ends up above and behind the tall white letters that everyone is so excited about. Even more important, our guides know the best places and poses for photographs with the sign in the background. Talk about a perfect souvenir of a private tour in Los Angeles. Individual and group pictures will fill our guests’ tour photo album, pictures they can share on the favorite social media sites and images that can grace their next holiday season card. By all means let us do the driving (and photographing) while you just sit back and relax and enjoy the sights of Los Angeles.
