Start your trip in the early evening, meeting up with your group in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theater. You can also arrange to get picked up from select hotels as well. You’ll start your nocturnal L.A. exploration in Hollywood, ground zero for the city’s movie industry and celebrity culture.

From there continue to downtown Los Angeles, one of the city’s hottest new areas, where you’ll get to check out spots like the Staples Center, Walt Disney Concert Hall, and Microsoft Theater. Then proceed to Griffith Park, where you’ll have a chance to enjoy nighttime views of Los Angeles from the summit while also learning about the park’s role as a filming location for the James Dean film “Rebel Without a Cause.”

Continue over to West Hollywood, home base for some of L.A.’s hottest nightclubs, music venues, and the legendary “Sunset Strip.” Contrast this nightlife mecca with an evening visit to upscale Beverly Hills, the center of L.A. life for the city’s rich and famous and its most famous boutiques.

Before you conclude your trip, you’ll also get to visit the famous Grove and Farmer’s Market, stop by the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and see Century City’s Avenue of the Stars. Guests who join the trip during “high season” will also get the added bonus photo opportunity in front of the famous Hollywood Sign.

The stars are permanent public monuments to achievement in the entertainment industry, bearing the names of a mix of musicians, actors, directors, producers, musical and theatrical groups, fictional characters, and others.

The Griffith Observatory is a facility in Los Angeles, California, sitting on the south-facing slope of Mount Hollywood in Los Angeles' Griffith Park. It commands a view of the Los Angeles Basin, including Downtown Los Angeles to the southeast, Hollywoodto the south, and the Pacific Ocean to the southwest. The observatory is a popular tourist attraction with a close view of the Hollywood Sign and an extensive array of space and science-related displays.

Pass By:  
Hollywood Sign
The Hollywood Sign (formerly the Hollywoodland Sign) is an American landmark and cultural icon overlooking Hollywood, Los Angeles, California. It is situated on Mount Lee, in the Hollywood Hills area of the Santa Monica Mountains. "HOLLYWOOD" is spelled out in 45-foot (13.7 m)-tall white capital letters and is 352 feet (107.3 m) long. The sign was originally created in 1923 as an advertisement for a local real estate development, but due to increasing recognition, the sign was left up. The sign has been a frequent target of pranks and vandalism across the decades, but it has since undergone restoration, including the installation of a security system to deter vandalism. The sign is protected and promoted by The Hollywood Sign Trust, a nonprofit organization, while its site and the surrounding land are part of Griffith Park. The sign makes frequent appearances in popular culture, particularly in establishing shots for films and television programs set in or around Hollywood. Signs of similar style, but spelling different words, are frequently seen as parodies. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce holds trademark rights to the Hollywood Sign.
Pass By:  
Walt Disney Concert Hall
The Walt Disney Concert Hall at 111 South Grand Avenue in downtown Los Angeles, California, is the fourth hall of the Los Angeles Music Center and was designed by Frank Gehry.

Bounded by Hope Street, Grand Avenue, and 1st and 2nd Streets, it seats 2,265 people and serves, among other purposes, as the home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestra and the Los Angeles Master Chorale. The hall is a compromise between an arena seating configuration, like the Berliner Philharmonie by Hans Scharoun, and a classical shoebox design like the Vienna Musikverein or the Boston Symphony Hall.
Pass By:  
Sunset Strip
The Sunset Strip is the 1 1⁄2-mile (2.4 km) stretch of Sunset Boulevard that passes through the city of West Hollywood, California, United States. It extends from West Hollywood's eastern border with the city of Los Angeles (Hollywood) at Crescent Heights Boulevard to its western border with Beverly Hills at Sierra Drive.

Staples Center, officially stylized as STAPLES Center, is a multi-purpose arena in Downtown Los Angeles. Adjacent to the L.A. Live development, it is located next to the Los Angeles Convention Center complex along Figueroa Street.

Stop At:  
The Original Farmers Market
The Farmers Market is an area of food stalls, sit-down eateries, prepared food vendors, and produce markets in Los Angeles, California. First opened in July 1934, it is also a historic Los Angeles landmark and it is a very big tourist attraction. The Farmers Market features more than 100 vendors, including ready-to-eat foods, grocers, and tourist shops, and is located just south of CBS Television City. Unlike most farmers' markets, which are held only at intervals, the Farmers' Market of Los Angeles is a permanent installation and is open seven days a week. The vendors serve many kinds of food, both American cuisine from local farmers and local ethnic foods from the many immigrant communities of Los Angeles, with many Latin American and Asian cuisines well represented. It is located at the corner of 3rd Street and Fairfax Avenue in the Fairfax District of Los Angeles. It is adjacent to The Grove outdoor shopping mall; an electric-powered streetcar runs between the two sites. The market is a destination for foodies in search of the market's ethnic cuisines, its specialty food markets, and its prepared-food stalls. A sign that reads "Meet Me at Third and Fairfax" displays at the front of the Farmers Market.

Night tour without night value

Imagine LA night tour without visiting neon lit Sunset Strip or seeing the iconic Griffith Observatory night skyline. Instead, listen to standard 1920s Hollywood history commentary while driving through empty and dark Downtown office blocks. Includes a 45min break at Farmers Market, however after 8pm when most of the food court places have closed already.. Starts with a 1-hour waiting / walking tour at Chinese Theater you could do well without the guide as you wil not hear anything from his loudspeakef anyway. A complete waste of time and money compared to Startours brilliant night tour a couple of years ago.

I have mixed emotions about this tour, the guy running it was lovely and so knowledgeable I feel bad saying anything negative about it but honestly it went for 4.5 hours and he didn't allow enough time at points of interest to take photos, barely stopped, so all of my photos are blurry.

Good tour. a little long and the last hour was rather repetitive my wife actually fell asleep. Had actually expected a drive and stop get out, photos, get back on. No, its a pure driving tour so if you want photos you'll need to pick a different one.

The tour guide did a great job. He earned his tip. I chose this tour because it was the only one that I could find that had a view of Los Angeles at night from Griffith Park Observatory. This was definitely a highlight.

The only thing worth seeing was the top of Mulholland Dr. Definitely not worth the money.
