Owner description: Hollywood is the center of celebrity fame and history. It also carries a rich tradition in food and trendy culinary cuisine. We blend all of this history, tradition, fame, and cuisine into one TOURific experience, our Hollywood Sites & Bites tour. We'll see most of Hollywood's famous landmarks, talk about Hollywood history, and stop at some of the best (some hidden gems) restaurants where all of our Hollywood friends like to eat! The food is fabulous, the history is awesome, and we promise you won't leave hungry or lacking in Hollywood knowledge! We also offer a Celebrity Insider Movie Locations tour that showcases famous filming sites in Beverly Hills, Century City and Hollywood. You'll be in the company of a leading Entertainment Journalist who will share the inside scoop on all the big stars and the movies they make. Our seasonal, specialty Chocolate Indulgence tour takes you where the locals like to buy their chocolates. All tours are in the comfort of a customized, fully-air conditioned mini-van with surround sound! Group size is maximum 7 guests for a truly personalized experience. We are happy to offer any of these tours for your private group of family or friends. Please use discount code "tripadvisor" when booking and you'll receive $15 off each ticket.

“Sights and Bites is the perfect way to see LA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2012

We only had one day in LA and wanted a tour but not the standard touristy type. TOURific was an incredible alternative. A small group, very personal service by Trish and a great view of LA. We had a view from a local perspective, with samples of terrific restaurants and shops that would not have been on any of the recommended lists. Grub, a teeny restaurant was a pure delight with food that satisfies even the most picky foodie! After 4 hours we had had enought food to last us through to a late dinner, had learned about the history and glamour of LA and had enjoyed the company of other travelers from Norway, Singapore and New York. Overall, a wonderful experience and the perfect intro to LA.

“Chocolate tour was great and Trish and Matt were awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

The LA chocolate tour was great! We went to 5 places in the LA area that had a range of different types of chocolate. The tour guides Trish and Matt were awesome! They were friendly, knowledgable and the tour had a great pace! I wouldn't miss this one!

“An eye and mouth opening experience of LA's best chocolate!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

Kudos to Trish and Matt for putting on such a great tour! I got their Chocolate Indulgence tour as a birthday present, and it greatly exceeded my expectations. We visited five destinations in and near Hollywood and West Hollywood, all specializing in unique chocolate creations. I've lived in LA most of my life and Trish introduced us to places we'll most definitely revisit. Trish and Matt are pros and made everyone in the group feel welcomed. The destinations were also very welcoming - and generous with the samples!

You may want to bring a camera and comfortable clothes - but most importantly - do not eat before this tour! You will want to save the room to taste every delectable bit put before you. Bravo, Tourific Escapes!

“The one tour you have to take”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2012

We went on TOURific Escapes Chocolate Indulgence tour and boy were we indulged! Matt and Trish, the couple who own the business and run the tours, are themselves are worth the price of admission. Trish knows EVERYTHING about chocolate and ALL the best places in LA to fulfill the craving. With a spiked chocolate drink to start us off, we visited 4 chocolatiers and cupcake shops. With plenty of treats and surprises between stops! I can't wait to join them again on another tour of the culinary delights of Hollywood and Santa Monica.
