Awesome views
Christian_J, May 2024
Our tour guide was excellent, provided awesome views of the Hollywood sign & downtown LA. I would highly recommend for anyone visiting the Hollywood/LA area.
Fun Experience
Brandy_M, May 2024
The most memorable thing was hanging out with someone on an intense hike, but made it fun and didn’t even seem that long. He was patient, kind and funny. Thanks Jon for such a good hike to the Hollywood Sign and keeping us hydrated and with granola bars
Fun hike and great guide
Tuan_D, May 2024
Matt was a wonderful guide. He kept us entertained with the history of the trail and surrounding area, jokes and recommendations on restaurants and other sites. I would not hesitate to recommend his tour to all my family and friends.
Amazing experience
Royale_L, May 2024
It was an amazing experience. Even though I was by myself, I appreciate Elko for helping me feel comfortable and included.
Hollywood sign tour

Hollywood Hike

Tour to Hollyvillesign😂 was so much fun! (Elco, Alco) I’m not sure of the spelling, was our tour guide, and he did an absolute amazing job. Made a long walk fun, interesting and made the 4.6 mile hike very enjoyable. We got some great pictures and awesome memories! Thank you!
Unique view of Los Angeles
Erica_V, May 2024
My girlfriend and I had a great time with JB on the hike up to the sign. He was informative, funny and just so very kind to everyone in the group. He gave us great info that brought the history to life, and he kept an eye on all of us to make sure we were enjoying ourselves on the trek up the hill. Highly recommend, keep in mind it’s not an easy stroll but JB helps pass the time as you walk through history.
Great tour guide, great value for money
Esther_L, May 2024
Our tour guide Matt was great! Entertaining and knowledge for the entire hike. Would recommend - I would not have found my way to the best places to take photos with the Hollywood sign myself! And learnt a lot about the history of the sign. Matt also provided complimentary water, granola bars and sunscreen!!
Had the best time with Jon!
Amanda_A, May 2024
My boyfriend and I absolutely loved our tour with Jon! We learned so much about the history of Hollywood while also being thoroughly entertained by Jon and his gorgeous pooch, Mozart, the entire time. Got some beautiful pictures and made wonderful memories. I highly recommend and if you’re lucky, you’ll get Jon as a guide!! Definite 100/10
Good company to deal with
Dina_M, May 2024
Unfortunately our tour was canceled, but I’m giving them 5 stars for several reasons. First, they let me know via email about the cancellation with plenty of notice to do something else. Unfortunately I didn’t see it, but we walked around ourselves, so no harm, no foul. Secondly, the reason for the cancellation was due to a possible contact with COVID & I’d rather be canceled than have been at risk. Thirdly, they offered to reschedule me to the next tour with a different operator, which I appreciated. And lastly, they communicated well & when I explained that I could not reschedule, they sent me a refund with minutes. No hassle. Next time I am in California, I will book again.
Highly recommend, a must-do for your L.A. holiday.
Rhiannon_E, May 2024
Does exactly what it says on the tin, relatively easy hike up to the Hollywood sign. Great little trip and a must-do in my opinion if you’re in L.A. Elko our tour guide was so funny, bought humour to the trip, whilst being really personable and getting to know everyone on the trip which I thought was lovely. Also a great way to meet and get to know people from all different countries and walks of life which I didn’t expect. Elko also takes a great photo and takes his time to make sure everyone gets a photo! You go to 2 vantage points, one below the sign and one above, the one above gives you an amazing view of the city of L.A. which in my opinion is the best part of the trip as the views are stunning. Elko is also really knowledgeable of the area. I’d highly recommend this trip! Yes you could probably do the walk yourself without a tour but for all the above reasons I’d suggests getting on this great value for money tour!
Great fun. Highly recommend.
Tracy_D, May 2024
We had a great time with our guide Elko. He was very funny and knowledgeable about the sign and surrounding area (he is also amazing at taking photos!). Thanks for the memories. X
John (Mozart) are best guides, knowledgeable and hilarious!
Ellen_W, May 2024
John (and his dog Mozart) were the BEST guides. John is hilarious and was also extremely knowledgeable about the Hollywood sign history as well history of the general area. I would definitely recommend him as your guide!!!
Great experience
Kelly_G, May 2024
great trip! Pretty easy for the most part, until right at the end when it gets the most steep. We wore our teva walking sandals and were very comfortable. I did this hike at nearly 16 weeks pregnant and felt great doing it!
Highly recommended!
Tim_F, May 2024
The Official Hollywood Sign Walking Tour was amazing! I enjoyed getting some great photos by the Hollywood Sign and I also enjoyed the hike to the top of the hill. And it was great to get a spectacular view of the entire city of LA from up top. I highly recommend this walking tour. It is so worth it!
Amazing tour!
gillianleigh, Apr 2024
Our guide was brilliant. Very chatty, social and funny. He explained everything really well and the walk itself was great. Brilliant views, and the host was amazing taking photos!!!
Amazing Experience!
Kate_B, Apr 2024
We did this hike on a family holiday from Australia and it did not disappoint! JB was fun and informative and kept a pace that worked for the whole group. Our 3 teenage sons were totally engaged the whole time! Great photo opportunities along the way and plenty of water and snacks supplied! Highly recommend 👍🏻
Highly recommended Hollywood Sign Hike
Lyndsay_D, Apr 2024
Matt was a great guide and Lola a great addition to the hike. Slow & steady hike (no pressure to go faster than you can manage) with lots of information on the area. Even though the other 3 participants weren’t up for the challenge of the hike, Matt continued in a professional manner and completed the tour to the fullest. Highly recommend this activity. Excellent views of LA skyline
Stunning & well paced
YaJun_W, Apr 2024
We loved our tour guide John and his beautiful sheepadoodle Mozart! John was enthusiastic, highly knowledgeable, kind, funny, super accommodating and went above and beyond taking photos for our group. The tour was well paced, with plenty of photo opportunities and the view from the top of (behind) the Hollywood sign was breathtaking. A great morning of exercise and sightseeing. I would definitely do this again when in LA again! 10/10
Great hike
Heidi_T, Apr 2024
Mat the guide was awesome and talked nonstop! We got to see the Hollywood sign from all angles, and got some great photos.
