1. How many persons in your party-including yourself-would be joining this tour?

      Itinerary

      Day 1: Southern California's Most Famous Beaches

      Venice Beach: This city, which receives millions of visitors a year, has been labeled as "a cultural hub known for its eccentricities." Expect to see performers, fortune-tellers, artists and vendors. The highlights are the boardwalk and Abbot Kinney Boulevard.

      Santa Monica: This resort beach city is Southern California at its finest (and most expensive). The highlights are 3rd & Promenade, with all its shops and pedestrians, the pier and Main Street.

      After exploring these two neighboring cities, let's watch the sunset at Hotel Shangri-La and afterwards go to Bungalow Lounge for some drinks and socializing.

      Day 2: Hollywood Excitement, Griffith Observatory, Theme Park & Evening Socializing

      The Americana at Brand: This large and outdoor shopping, dining and entertainment complex in Glendale is popular with locals and tourists alike.

      Griffith Observatory: This is a popular tourist attraction with a close view of the Hollywood Sign and an extensive array of space and science-related displays. It is also a popular place for hiking.

      Universal City Walk: This is a three-block entertainment, dining and shopping promenade. It has more than 30 places to eat, a 19-screen movie theater, indoor skydiving and more than 30 stores.

      Hollywood Walk of Fame & Chinese Theater: The stars embedded into the sidewalks along 15 blocks of Hollywood Boulevard and three blocks of Vine Street are permanent public monuments to achievement in the entertainment industry, bearing the names of a mix of musicians, actors, directors, producers, musical and theatrical groups, fictional characters and others. The Walk of Fame is a popular tourist destination, with a reported 10 million visitors in 2003.

      Sunset Boulevard for Drinks & Socializing: The Sunset Strip portion of Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood has been famous for its active nightlife since at least the 1950s. We would spend our evening hanging out here.

      Day 3: Rodeo Drive, a Famous Farmers Market, Celebrity Homes & West Hollywood

      Rodeo Drive: Known for its luxury goods stores, this drive has been featured in a countless number of movies.

      Santa Monica Boulevard/West Hollywood: This area is home to some of Greater Los Angeles' most prestigious bars. We would spend our evening hanging out here.

      Mulholland Drive: This road is featured in a significant number of movies, songs and novels and displays several celebrities' homes.

      Melrose Avenue: This is a popular shopping, dining and entertainment destination.

      The Grove at Farmers Market: This is an outdoor retail and entertainment complex located adjacent to an area packed with food stalls, sit-down eateries, prepared food vendors and produce markets.

      Note that you can extend this standard 3-day trip by one day. Just like adjacent Los Angeles County, Orange County is worth exploring. We would show you Newport Beach’s marina village (called Via Lido), Corona del Mar’s popular lookout point (called Lookout Point Park), Crystal Cove State Park (encompassing 3.2 miles of coastline, canyons and beach houses) and Laguna Beach. Would you like to add a day to this standard 3-day tour so we can show you Orange County? This would make your tour 4 days in total. Let us know.

      I had tons of fun on this company’s tour of the Greater Los Angeles area. I never realized there was such a variety of activities right in my home state! It was evident we were brought to the best sites and CharlieTheTraveler did an excellent job planning the perfect short vacation.

      There was a lot included in this trip, including all tours and transportation. I felt the price was a value and I would not be able to find a better deal. The short trip was ideal for a quick getaway. CharlieTheTraveler organized a great 3-day trip and I am glad I went with this company!

      Even though I am originally from California, there was never time to do all the Los Angeles sightseeing. I am glad CharlieTheTraveler offered this 3-day value tour. I found the tour ideal. It was interesting, as our tour guide was more familiar with the area than I was. He even was able to recommend the best places for me that I have not been to! Growing up with California cuisine, it was important I had a tour guide that understood the area and the food!

      I was burned out and required a short trip, but something that still had a balance of exploring during the day and enjoying nightlife in the evening. CharlieTheTraveler’s Greater Los Angeles tour seemed to have all that and more, plus positive reviews, so I booked. I enjoyed every moment during the trip!

      I am fascinated by sightseeing and touring different cities. However, I struggle to plan trips, as I am not sure what are good places to see and good things to do. I found it comforting that CharlieTheTraveler had everything planned for the 3-day trip to Greater Los Angeles. Our tour guide knew the area very well and was able to help me navigate while I explored. By the end of the trip, I felt like an expert myself!

      After a few stressful months of work and everyday life, I felt I needed a “stay-cation”. However, I didn’t have time to do research and plan for it. I was thankful to find that CharlieTheTraveler had a tour through the Greater Los Angeles area, so I practically had no planning to do. Our tour guide was knowledgeable of the area and had excellent recommendations for authentic California meals.

      CharlieTheTraveler had a very organized trip to the Greater Los Angeles area that made for a perfect short vacation. I enjoyed all of the sightseeing. I appreciated having a tour guide during each of these activities, as he knew practically everything about the area and was able to offer me quite a few interesting facts I did not know, which I thoroughly enjoyed.

      My friend was getting married in California, and since I had never been to this state, I stayed a bit longer to explore the area. With everything else going on, I knew I would not have a chance to plan a whole trip of sightseeing and exploring the cities. Upon Googling tours, I came across CharlieTheTraveler who had excellent reviews and a perfect 3-day Los Angeles tour. I felt confident booking with this company and I am glad I did!

      The 3-day trip to Los Angeles was tons of fun for me. I enjoyed exploring famous tourist areas. However, I don’t think I would have enjoyed it as much without the tour guide from CharlieTheTraveler. He had great recommendations of non-touristy places in the area and he made everything entertaining.

      I enjoyed touring this famous area of California. The short trip offered a great balance of activities and day trips, all of which I enjoyed. I also appreciated that the tour organized by CharlieTheTraveler had a group limit, as the small group style allowed intimacy and a sense of safety while I explored the cities.

      There is so much to do in the Los Angeles that I would have never been able to plan an organized 3-day trip and still had time to actually enjoy it. I was thankful to have found CharlieTheTraveler already had this great tour planned and I barely had to organize anything. I found this was the perfect trip for me, as it included all of my favorite activities- shopping, eating, and sightseeing!

      California has a distinct culture, and the culture is emphasized and highlighted specifically in the Los Angeles area. CharlieTheTraveler organized a great trip to experience each aspect of the Californian culture--enjoying the beach of Santa Monica, shopping in Glendale, and sightseeing in Hollywood. There was so much to do on this tour for one great price!

      A business trip was planned for California, so to help relieve some stress after the trip, I wanted to plan to stay a few more days in the area for some fun. I heard great things about CharlieTheTraveler’s tours abroad, so I booked the domestic tour of the Los Angeles area. The short trip was refreshing after all of my meetings. I appreciated the company including an American cultural experience unlike any other!

      Hollywood has always been on my bucket list, but I did not know how to start planning a trip to such a legendary place in our country. The Greater Los Angeles trip by CharlieTheTraveler seemed organized and included a lot of activities I was interested in. I was not expecting how great the company treated me from the time I booked until the time I was back at home after my trip. Throughout the trip, I found our tour guide very helpful.

      We had only 4 days to see LA & our 3-day tour was tailored especially to our needs. We had a 9 year old with us & Charlie made sure she enjoyed the tour by picking kid-friendly things to do too. Each day was action packed. We saw all of the famous beaches, Griffith Observatory, the Hollywood sign, the Hollywood walk of fame (where we looked for our favorite stars), all over Beverly Hills (including Rodeo Drive), the Farmer’s Market, went shopping at The Grove & played at the Balboa fun zone. We literally packed SO much into each tour day that we were exhausted at the end of each day! Charlie even recommenced we get out of our comfort zones to try need foods so we tried Armenian & Brazilian foods & found new favorites.
I would VERY HIGHLY recommend this tour to anyone!! It was above & beyond anything we had expected. It was first class!!!!

      Do I Get Any Free Time to Myself?

      Of course. Once each day’s tour is over, you have the rest of the evening to yourself. Because our tours tend to be very active, our customers typically want to simply relax once the sun sets.

      What Happens If I Arrive Late?

      Notify us as soon as possible and we will do our very best to arrange a meeting point. Please note that we do not refund for any days or activities that you miss.

      Can I Opt-Out of Certain Activities?

      Generally speaking, you can opt out as long as we are given adequate notice. Please note that opting out of certain activities does not reduce the price of this tour.

      What Happens If I Get Injured on This Trip & Cannot Continue?

      We would do our best to keep you safe and make you as comfortable as possible, as well as make special arrangements to address your situation. Partial refunds are not offered if you cannot continue with the tour. However, most travel insurances reimburse you for such situations. This is one of many reasons why we require our customers to purchase travel insurance before taking this tour.

      What Happens If I Cancel This Trip?

      To confirm your tour, full payment is needed at the time of your purchase. However, refunds are offered. You will receive a full refund if canceling at least 91 days in advance from the departure date. Cancelling between 90-60 days prior to departure entitles you to a 50 percent refund. Cancelling between 59-31 days prior to departure entitles you to a 25 percent refund. Canceling 30 days or less prior to departure is not eligible for a refund. Cancellation requests need to be made by email and become effective on the date received by CharlieTheTraveler.

      What Happens If You, CharlieTheTraveler, Cancel This Trip?

      In the unlikely event CharlieTheTraveler needs to cancel this trip, such as because of very poor weather conditions, we will give you a full refund for the tour within 14 business days of the cancellation. Note: We are not a participant in the California Travel Consumer Restitution Fund, nor is this transaction covered by the Restitution Fund.

      You should receive an email from us within 24 hours of purchasing this tour as well as a week before departure. The first email gives details about what to bring, how to prepare yourself, etc. The second email is more like a timetable combined with important contact information.

      Is CharlieTheTraveler Licensed & Which State in America Issued it?

      The owner of the travel license is the same owner of CharlieTheTraveler. Charlie is a California born and bred resident. The company is headquartered in Greater Los Angeles. The registration number is CST 2136740-70. Please note that travel agents registered as a seller of travel in California does not constitute approval by the State. Also please note that California law requires sellers of travel to have a trust account or bond. CharlieTheTraveler has a trust account.

      Are the Tour Guides Licensed & Will They Be With Me the Entire Time?

      Our tour guides/drivers are licensed, speak English and know how to bring excitement to your day. What we deliver is the complete opposite of the cookie-cutting tours the big corporations offer, leaving you in complete boredom. Although our tour guides/drivers are attentive, accommodating and engaged, they also know when to give you your private space and free time. It's a perfect balance.

      Are We Required to Have Travel Insurance?

      Travel insurance is required for all of our customers, for their protection and safety. CharlieTheTraveler does not sell travel insurance. We cannot endorse any specific company. Please check out different companies online and go with the one which offers the most comprehensive coverage.

      All of our tours are offered in English. If you prefer another language, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you.

      Can We Customize This Tour?

      Although we are open to customizing this tour to fit your liking, as a general rule, we discourage the practice. We do our best to keep the cost of the tour low. The more we customize it, the quicker the price goes up. As our tour is currently advertised, you absolutely will not find another one out there as packed with activities and attractions. What’s more, you will not find another tour out there that offers it all "FIRST CLASS," yet for a relatively low price. We have thousands of travelers taking this specific tour every year, and that's because no competitor can beat us on quality, price & substance.

      Do We Need to Get Our Own Transportation to and From the Airport?

      Absolutely not. We make the arrangements for you.

      Can We Book Instantly?

      We do not offer the option for you to book instantly because we first need you to tell us via email or phone call the answers to these questions below. Once we have this information, we can send you the link so you can book immediately.

      1. Would you be sharing the room with others in your group (e.g. a spouse, relative or friend) or do you want the room exclusive to you?
      2. Do you prefer a budget-sensitive 3-star hotel, a better quality but pricier 4-star hotel or a luxurious 5-star hotel?
      3. How many persons in your party-including yourself-would be joining this tour?
      4. Do you know on which date you would like to start the tour?

      Is Someone Available for Us 24-7 While on This Tour?
