August and September offer a fun selection of WEHO walking tours of famous landmarks and stunning world-class architecture. From Deco to The Doors, from Mid-Mod to movie stars, lots to see!
1. GOLDEN AGE OF (WEST) HOLLYWOOD
August 6 SATURDAY -10:30 AM
Long before there was Weho there was another West Hollywood, also full of stars & bars. We venture on foot to the playgrounds of the legends, from the Roaring Twenties to the Sunset Strip riots-our most popular tour.
2. DOORS TOUR
August 13 SATURDAY – 3PM
Dress in your rock finery as we rock out to the music of The Doors and visit the favorite hangs of Jim and the boys. A dozen sites in a dozen blocks, this was Jim’s creative home. Follow the Lizard King’s footsteps- bring your own Jack Daniels!
(Extra optional $15 fee to enter grounds of Cherie Amour, last known US residence of Jim Morrison.)
3. GOLDEN AGE OF (WEST) HOLLYWOOD

Reprise of our most popular tour.
