So glad we chose this tour!
We had a fantastic morning hiking to the Hollywood sign with Maria! She knew so much information about Griffiths Park and the Hollywood sign. Would definitely recommend - thank you so much Maria!

Great Griffith Park tour!
My husband and I had a great time on this tour! Lisa was very knowledgeable and entertaining about the different sights (man-made and natural) we saw. The hike wasn’t too difficult (we are both 70+) and Lisa made sure we went at a pace we could all enjoy. I would recommend this tour to both visitors and Angelenos; we live in LA but learned lots of information from Lisa!

Great tour!
Really enjoyed this hiking tour with Maria, Chris and Chris' dog! We were luckily enough to be the only customers so were able to get a wealth of information from our friendly and knowledgeable guides. This hike finishes right above the sign and the route up seemed pretty complicated, so I'd definitely recommend using these guys!

FAQs

How difficult is this hike?

The round-trip distance for our Hollywood Sign adventure hike is 6 miles. The path is somewhat tricky. It’s like ascending a 45-story skyscraper. Although it’s challenging, the experience is undoubtedly worth it!

Are there restrooms available?

There are no restrooms at the start or end of the hike. Be sure to use the bathroom before heading out on your walk.

What should I bring?

Make sure you’re prepared for the warm temperatures in Los Angeles. Hats, sunscreen, and light clothes are all recommended. It is necessary to wear sturdy footwear. Choose a pair of closed-toed, comfy shoes that you can trek for 6 miles in. We also recommend packing a snack or lunch to eat at the summit.

How do you customize this private tour?

This tour is exclusive to your group. Please let us know what areas of interest you have so that our guide can personalize the hike to meet your needs. Whether you want to learn about Griffith Park’s botany, Hollywood magic, the history of the observatory and park, or simply get some suggestions for your vacation to LA, our experts are delighted to help.

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.

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.
