Escape the cliché! See the best of LA in just a day while getting off the beaten path and discovering the city’s lesser known sites. This LA overview gives you both landmark icons and secret gems, taking you from Hollywood to Santa Monica, with the Farmers Market and Beverly Hills in between. Explore on foot and by public transit as you ride alongside locals and get a feel for what it really means to live in Los Angeles. Sure, you’ll see the Hollywood sign, Rodeo Drive, and Venice Beach (can you really come to LA and not see them?!), but you’ll also visit a hidden garden oasis on Hollywood Boulevard, learn about film and television history at a local media museum, and ride bikes along the Pacific Ocean’s famous beach path.

On this Los Angeles city tour, you’ll begin in Hollywood, LA’s birthplace of film, and see the Chinese Theater and Dolby Theater with their iconic Hollywood sign backdrop. Glimpse your favourite stars on the Walk of Fame… or maybe even in person! Once you’ve seen what the strip has to offer, we’ll head off the beaten path to Hollywood local hotspots, to the hidden gems even some residents don’t know about, like a secret garden right on Hollywood Boulevard.

Then it’s time to jump on a local bus for a quick ride down Fairfax to an LA institution that’s over 80 years old. The Original Farmers Market began in 1934 as a makeshift gathering of local farmers selling fresh produce out of trucks. Today, the market is a melting pot of tantalising food stalls, old-fashioned vendors, fresh produce, and lots of local atmosphere! Lunch is at your own cost, giving you full freedom to choose from the vast array of delicious foods available.

After our lunch break, we take a quick bus to the heart of Beverly Hills. You’ll taste a treat from a world-famous cupcake bakery, then check out whatever costumes, sets, and props are on display at a local media museum. Finally, stroll one of the most renowned shopping streets in the world, Rodeo Drive.

Leaving Beverly Hills, you’ll ride through West Los Angeles, passing through the high-rises and UCLA neighbourhoods of Westwood and Brentwood. You can also use this chance for a quick nap or to strike up a conversation with a local.

Once in Santa Monica, take in a view of the Pacific then set off for a quintessential LA experience on a laidback Cali beach cruiser (bicycle). Soak up the local culture, SoCal sun, and Pacific breeze on this leisurely 10-kilometre ride from the Santa Monica Pier to lively Venice Beach, home to Muscle Beach, funky shops, and eclectic locals. This easy pedal along the beach is a rewarding end to your LA getaway.

Finish your Los Angeles city tour at the Santa Monica Pier, where your guide will assist you with finding public transportation or a taxi to your next destination. Or, if you still have the energy, stay and explore Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade and vibrant nightlife.

“The LA Getaway itinerary is an excellent way to see LA in only one day. The opportunity to see Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica and Venice Beach all via local transport and with a local guide looking after all of the details is really valuable and highly recommended - in my opinion so much better to see a city this way, in a small group. Visiting the community garden in Hollywood was an unexpected treasure and a real highlight, as was the bike ride from Santa Monica to Venice Beach. Summer was delightful to deal with in the pre-booking process, and with her generous advice I had the information and confidence to see a couple of extra sights in LA on my own.”

“Enjoyed a lovely LA day with Pip seeing both the mainstream and alternative sites. I enjoyed wandering around the community garden with a enthusiastic Glad, and getting an introduction to the buses of LA, proving can get around without a car. Really enjoyed finishing off with a bicycle ride along the beach at Santa Monica... something for everyone.”
