This wonderful Los Angeles tour combines a Stars’ Homes tour and Universal Studios tickets.

Start with the famous Stars’ Homes Tour. Travel to exclusive Beverly Hills and see the magnificent mansions where the mega-stars live. Drive along the world-famous Rodeo Drive and see the places where the stars hang out and the exclusive stores where they shop.

Then get inside the world’s largest and busiest movie studio, Universal Studios, creator of some of the biggest Hollywood blockbusters and enjoy a fascinating tram tour and some edge-of-the-seat thrills.

If you wish to save a bit of time, then an option that gives you the celebrity homes and Universal Studios, but not the city tour, is available.


At the start of this enjoyable day out, you will be picked up from your hotel in an air-conditioned vehicle. An English-speaking guide will accompany you.

You will drive through the exclusive districts of Bel Air, Beverly Hills and Holmby Hills and see the grand mansions of the super-stars.

You will also be driven through the shopping paradise of Rodeo Drive, where the rich and famous go for retail therapy. Premier stores here include Bijan, Gucci, Prada, Harry Winston Jewelers, and you will see the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel featured in the film ‘Pretty Woman’.

Your guide will not accompany you to Universal Studios, but your admission ticket entitles you to a fascinating Studio Tour by tram. This tour, which lasts about 45 minutes, is led by a guide (seen throughout the tram on a video screen) and travels through the Front Lot, Back Lot and various other attractions.

You will be able to see the sets and props from blockbuster Hollywood movies and television shows. The Tour is the signature attraction at the Universal Studios Hollywood theme park and goes into the heart of a busy, working movie studio. Sets from films The War of the Worlds, Universal Pictures' King Kong and The Fast and the Furious: Extreme Close-Up will be visited in the tour.

Your ticket includes entry to all rides, shows and attractions and you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the fun at Universal Studios. Face heart-pounding special effects at every turn on the ‘Revenge of the Mummy’ rollercoaster, raging dinosaurs in ‘Jurassic Park’ and defy every dimension at ‘Shrek 4-D’, an ogre-the-top adventure!

Around 6:00pm, your vehicle will pick you up and drop you back at your hotel.
