Make Appointment

The Earth is the ground upon which we all stand, together in our differences.  It is an ever-shifting, politicized landscape of borders, exclusions and omissions, as well as shared terrain under pressing physical assault. This multigenerational and multicultural group of artists explore the reality of a shared planet that is humanity’s most divided territory and damaged common ground.

Hey Kids, Get in the Car, We're Going to Hollywood!

By Staff Writer

 

Residents of the Valley may not think about all of the wonderful tourist attractions that lay right here in our backyard living in the greater Los Angeles area, but the opportunities for residents and tourists alike abound with Starline Tours, the largest purveyor of guided tours and entertainment in the greater Los Angeles area. Starline Tours offers a variety of tours of popular attractions such as Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and Malibu. Our tour guide, Lisa, an affable San Fernando Valley native, hosted tour number 1, which is the tour of stars homes in the Hollywood and Beverly Hills area. The tour began with an interesting overview of how Hollywood came to be, the development of the area around the studios, and the Hollywood legends past and present that reside in the area. Leaving from the TCL Chinese Theater, parking is conveniently available at the Hollywood and Highland parking garage, providing easy access to covered parking. Guests are taken around in a comfortable open top converted van that provides ample room for approximately 15 guests per van, but at no time does anybody feel crowded. Earphones are provided for each guest providing clear sound as the tour guide provides interesting banter about Hollywood lore and current residents. Some of the current and former stars’ homes on Tour 1 include those of television personalities like Jimmy Kimmel, Larry King, Lucille Ball, and Ellen DeGeneres; movie stars Tom Cruise, Bruce Willis, Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks, and music personalities such as Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, and Ozzy Osborne. Starline tours offers a unique way to see LA as a tourist, or give out-of-town guests a hassle-free way to see all LA has to offer from the comfort and convenience of an open-top van or air-conditioned bus. Prices vary by tour. Tours leave daily from TCL Chinese Theater (and other locations), 6925 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, CA. 323-463-3333, http://www.starlinetours.com/los-angeles-tours.asp
