Los Angeles, United States-port

After the Jesuits built a series of missions along the coast of Alta California, the Spaniards established a port in 1781 as a supply stop for their coastal shipping routes. With the arrival of the transcontinental railroad and the discovery of oil, people began to arrive in droves. In 1923 the much-photographed giant letters were erected on the hill, and the golden age of Hollywood was born. The scale of Los Angeles, 90 miles long by 50 miles wide, defies belief.

Tour Code: LAX-001

See the icons of L.A., from Mann's Chinese Theater to the Staples Center to the Farmer's Market on this all-encompassing tour.

Starting off from the pier, you will enjoy a definitive panoramic tour of the City of Angels, with stops at L.A.'s most recognized landmarks. Traveling along, you will pass a few of its most renowned sporting venues, including the Coliseum, which has hosted two Olympics, and the Staples Center, home to the L.A. Lakers, Clippers and Kings.

It's only natural that there will be plenty of photo opportunities being that Los Angeles is home to so many movie stars. One of the most famous stops is at Mann's Chinese Theater. Its forecourt features the handprints and footprints of nearly 200 Hollywood legends, including Gloria Swanson, Clint Eastwood and Brad Pitt. Then, enjoy free time to stroll Hollywood Boulevard's Walk of Fame, where more than 2,400 Hollywood icons are immortalized with a star imbedded in the pavement. You will also visit the Los Angeles Music Center, a complex of theaters that includes the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion and the Frank Gehry-designed Walt Disney Concert Hall, a burnished stainless-steel structure reminiscent of his Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain.

Of course, not every venue revolves around entertainment. Stops are also included at Olvera Street, where the Spanish pueblo of Los Angeles was founded in 1781, the sprawling Farmer's Market, and The Grove, a chic shopping district.

After a wonderful time taking in the sights of this legendary city of dreams, you will travel back to the pier where your tour concludes.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 2-hours of moderate to strenuous walking, plus any walking at the guests' discretion during free time. There are steps to negotiate at the Music Center and Farmers' Market. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and not considered suitable for those with mobility concerns. Weather appropriate clothing which should include a sweater or jacket, and flat, comfortable walking shoes is suggested.
