Beautiful day, amazing tour!
This is absolutely a must-do if you want to go to the Griffith Park Observatory and see the Hollywood sign. We met our guide, Lisa, at a small market/cafe at the base of the hill. She took us through a winding neighborhood and then up the hill to the Observatory, and back down again. Lisa pointed out many interesting facts and sights that we would not have known or seen had we been by ourselves. She was very friendly and offered to take our pictures on many occasions. We were blessed with a beautiful day, weather-wise, and the city of Los Angeles was in full view. We decided not to visit the Observatory, as there were several school groups and it had just opened for the day. Lisa led us back down the hill and we parted back at the market/cafe. At no time did we feel rushed - this was a very relaxing tour. There are some stairs and hills, but Lisa stopped several times along the way, so it was not difficult at all. I will definitely check out the tour website and request Lisa for our next tour!

Fun activity for locals and visitors alike!
I grew up in the LA suburbs, but never spent much time in this part of town. I finally decided to get to know the area and was glad to be led by the incredibly friendly, considerate, and knowledgeable guide Chris! He made the experience one my friends and I will always remember.

Great hike and guide
Chris was great! He had great information regarding the history of how the park came to be and we loved the walk through the great neighborhood too. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to know more about where they live and the history of it.

FAQs

How much walking is there?

At a leisurely pace, you’ll walk roughly 1.5-2 kilometers. We’ll also spend 30-40 minutes climbing up a steep slope at a slow pace. If mobility is an issue, you can also arrange a private tour.

Will we tour the Griffith Observatory?

Your tour guide will lead you to the Griffith Observatory’s entrance after you’ve seen the Hollywood Sign and will tell you everything about this LA landmark. After the tour, you may either enter the observatory or return with your guide on a short hike.

What is the rescheduling policy?

We are aware that plans might change. You may easily change your tour up to 24 hours before departure. We provide a 100% refund up to 24 hours before the start of your tour. Within 24 hours of your tour, we would have incurred hard costs and therefore cannot allow rescheduling or cancellation without costs.

When should I get there?

Prepare to arrive 15 minutes early. The trip begins immediately, and if you come late, you may not be able to catch up.

What if it rains?

Our tours go on rain or shine, so please check the weather forecast before you go. If we have to cancel due to severe weather conditions, we will give you the option to reschedule or get a full refund.

What about gratuities?

Tips are always appreciated, but they are never expected. They’re an excellent way to express your gratitude and tell your guide that they did a fantastic job.
