Los Angeles, United States-port

After the Jesuits built a series of missions along the coast of Alta California, the Spaniards established a port in 1781 as a supply stop for their coastal shipping routes. With the arrival of the transcontinental railroad and the discovery of oil, people began to arrive in droves. In 1923 the much-photographed giant letters were erected on the hill, and the golden age of Hollywood was born. The scale of Los Angeles, 90 miles long by 50 miles wide, defies belief.

Beverly Hills/Rodeo Drive Walking Tour

Moderate Activity/Walking

Duration: 4 hours

Tour Code: LAX-008

Shop along glittery Rodeo Drive, the most renowned and ultra-luxurious street in Beverly Hills, especially the three-block area with one glamorous designer shop after another.

After departing from the pier, you will enjoy a leisurely I hour drive inland to Beverly Hills, perhaps the most glamorous, well-heeled city in metropolitan Los Angeles and above all, a small town for the wealthy. Less than six square miles in size, Beverly Hills is strictly a neighborhood of homes and shops. The city has churches, but it has no smokestacks; it has restaurants, but no industry; boutiques, but no billboards; parks, but no eyesores. There's not even a hospital or a cemetery in the city to remind the residents of their mortality. It has been said that, technically, no one is born or dies in Beverly Hills. Despite the beauty of the residential neighborhoods and landmarks such as the Beverly Hills Hotel, shopping reigns supreme in Beverly Hills, especially along beautiful Rodeo Drive.

Upon arrival, you will have a walking tour to introduce you to the area’s highlights and then you will be turned loose to explore this legendary shopping mecca at your own pace. The epicenter of luxury and fashion in Los Angeles for nearly 50 years, the list of shops and boutiques reads like a Who’s Who of the world’s most famous designers. Cartier, Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi, Gucci, Jimmy Choo, Louis Vuitton, Rolex and Versace are but a few of the world-renowned shops. This is truly one of the world’s finest collection of shops and boutiques, so be assured that whatever you wish for in luxury merchandise is here on fabled Rodeo Drive.

You’ll have just under 2 hours here before it’s time to re-join your coach and transfer back to the pier. Those who are not at the appointed place at the appointed time for the transfer will be responsible for making their own way back to the pier, at their own expense.

Please note: Walking on this tour is primarily at the guests’ discretion. You may encounter uneven surfaces and steps to negotiate. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have an able-bodied companion to assist them. Those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Weather appropriate casual chic clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; sunscreen; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Motor coaches are required to drop guests a few blocks away from Rodeo Drive but a few minutes of walking will bring you to heart of the shopping district.
