After pickup from Anaheim in the morning, its off to LA for a full day of exploration. Relax on your 33-mile (52-km) drive north and pass through Downtown Los Angeles on your way to your first stop, Hollywood. Along the way, your driver will tell you historical facts and anecdotes, provide some fun trivia, and point out where various movies and TV shows have been filmed.
You'll then have three hours to explore Hollywood at your own pace before continuing to Santa Monica or Venice. Walk down Hollywood Boulevard to visit the TCL Chinese Theatre, the Hollywood Museum, Madame Tussauds Hollywood wax museum and Ripleys Believe It or Not!. Find your favorite stars along the Hollywood Walk of Fame, walk down the historic Sunset Strip, and get great photo opportunities of the Hollywood Sign in the distance.
Spend your whole three hours in Hollywood or catch the complimentary shuttle from Downtown Hollywood to the LA Farmers Market or The Grove. Enjoy free time to shop and have lunch at one or both of these famous places, with two shuttle departure times to choose from.
Board the shuttle and head back to Hollywood in the early afternoon, and then hop on the coach and continue driving through Beverly Hills. Enjoy commentary from your driver as you make your way to the pristine beaches of Santa Monica or Venice, where youll have two hours to spend independently taking in the sights.
Walk along the beautiful Santa Monica Pier and ride a roller coaster at Pacific Park the only West Coast pier with an amusement park. Or, saunter along the Venice Beach waterfront promenade to view its many street performers and eclectic souvenir shops.
