Kermit greets us at the Jim Henson Company studios in Hollywood, one of our regular stops when we have enthusiastic kids aboard. We expect to be seeing a lot of Kermit in the next few weeks with Spring Break upon us. We know many cool places to see and visit that kids will especially like besides the usual places that mom and dad appreciate seeing on an Elite Adventure Tours excursion through Hollywood and Los Angeles.

Maybe we should consider making the Pantry a regular tour stop for lunch for downtown Los Angeles tours much like we use the Farmers Market in Hollywood for a fun and filling break.

This very old vintage photo from the earliest days of Musso & Frank Grill (since 1919) on Hollywood Boulevard. This great (then and now) dining establishment attracted the movie stars. Today we like to offer it as a lunch stop to our Elite Adventure Tours guests on their private Los Angeles tour.

That's MacArthur Park and downtown Los Angeles in a photo taken during one of our private helicopter tours. Our Elite Adventure Tours guests requested a flyover of the lake so they could sing the refrain from the great Jimmy Webb song. We can do that in a helicopter, for the most part, and we always vary our ground tour routes to accommodate our guests' wishes. That's the beauty of a private custom tour.

After a year posting our private Los Angeles tour photographs we can proudly say that this is our 2nd most popular image. Since you are here you can scroll through the images and find our most popular photograph (by a longshot) or wait for a little while until we talk about it on our blog. At Elite Adventure Tours we love taking photographs for all our guests on their tours of Hollywood and Beverly Hills.

Johnny Depp is everywhere when we and our Elite Adventure Tours guests arrive at Grauman's Chinese Theater in Hollywood as a part of a custom private tour of Los Angeles. Handprints, his Walk of Fame star, his Madame Tussaud's figure and several live characters are all right here in one place.

The recently repainted Hollywood Sign practically glows atop Mt. Lee overlooking the Los Angeles basin and clearly seen from miles away. This is the favorite stop for our private luxury tours for taking photos of the sign and of Los Angeles.

Local Los Angeles artist Kikki Eder loves to capture interesting structures, people and L.A. scenes in her colorful paintings. We like to visit the neighborhoods she depicts as we drive around Los Angeles with our private luxury tour guests. Art guides us as much as we are guides to Los Angeles art.

After Universal Studios Hollywood completes the expansion of Springfield from The Simpson's, it will be a must-see! Hope it happens in 2016 (when the Harry Potter area is planned to open!)

Griffith Park Observatory sits on the hills above Los Angeles, California. Great place to visit! Go to or just click on photo for home videos and much more on sites like this.
