not that many famous people there and hard to find many of them there. A beautiful place but exhausting if your elderly or disabled and a little depressing and sad being there.

We mainly went to see the hollywood legends area, like the ramones and musical legends. It was quiet the day we went. You can buy a map for $5 or just walk around but the legends are all together

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night

We didn’t take the tour. You can get a guidebook at the flower shop near the entrance and do your own. That’s what we did. Sorry for the confusion.

There is no need for a tour. You can just walk at your own pace. You can do some research online at their website.
