Take a trip into Hollywood's Golden Age with a tour celebrating 100 years of Tinseltown. The Felix in Hollywood Tour Company goes behind the glitz and glam, hitting the pavement instead of the double-decker busses, tram rides, and open-air van tours that only further muddle and mythologize the movie capital's complex history. Hollywood historian Philip Mershon leads a fascinating 90-minute walking tour that uncovers the past behind the major film companies, recording studios, and TV and radio networks that have made Hollywood what it is today. It's a unique, star-studded voyage that promises to appeal to both locals and tourists alike.

Felix in Hollywood says…

Not your ordinary Hollywood tour! It's a live action documentary. Come and enjoy a fascinating exploration of the exact area in Hollywood where it all began. As a walking tour, there are no crowded buses and no star's homes blocked by walls! We'll stroll back through the decades down the same star line that all the greats did. We'll talk about how Hollywood (the town) happened and why Hollywood (the business) happened here.
