We’ve developed a fresh and exciting take on an LA institution: the movie star homes tour.
Celebrity homes tours have been a fixture in Los Angeles since the heyday of Hollywood’s golden age in the 1930s. Most of them use cramped passenger vans and stuffy tour buses to follow cookie-cutter routes to generic celebrity destinations. We wanted to give people a more invigorating and exciting alternative, which is why we developed a unique self-guided bike tour that highlights dozens of unique LA attractions in addition to over 30 celebrity homes.
Here’s how it works:
You’ll ride off on a premium-quality hybrid bike, and our guide will send you on a carefully designed route through some of LA’s most glamorous and fascinating neighborhoods.
Beginning in colorful West Hollywood, you’ll proceed past Marilyn Monroe’s former apartment building to Greystone Mansion, one of the most iconic architectural treasures in movie and TV history. From there, you’ll see the last house Michael Jackson lived in before visiting legendary Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills.
Along the way, you’ll pedal past more than 30 homes currently or formerly owned by some of the biggest celebrities in show business. This tour also includes many LA landmarks made famous by movies and TV shows, including the Beverly Hills Hotel, the Four Seasons Beverly Wilshire featured in Pretty Woman, and many others.
The wide, palm-lined streets of Beverly Hills make for amazing biking, and this tour is perfect for guests of all fitness levels. We also offer the opportunity to upgrade to a self-powered electric bike for an affordable extra charge.
Our Movie Star and Celebrity Homes tour makes it easy for you to discover Hollywood history and experience Los Angeles at your own pace. It runs daily at 10:30 a.m. The tour covers 10 miles, and takes about three hours to complete.
Come see why our movie star homes tours have helped make us LA’s top-rated outdoor activity.
At Bikes and Hikes LA, we’ve earned a reputation for providing invigorating, innovative outdoor activities that deliver a rejuvenating workout and a healthy dose of sunshine. Our movie star homes tours have helped us become TripAdvisor’s #1-rated outdoor activity in the city, and we’d love to have you join our long list of satisfied customers.
