Beverly Hills Hidden Gems Walking Tour
Go beyond mainstream Beverly Hills on this 3-hour walking tour that takes you through the area’s lesser-known attractions in the so-called Golden Triangle. Navigate side streets and explore under-the-radar cultural havens, secret gardens and covert galleries with your insider guide. Taste gourmet cheeses and artisanal chocolates, as well as cupcakes from Sprinkles, a trendsetting bakery that has achieved its own celebrity status. Best of all, your group will be small, with no more than 12 people, to ensure quality.
Go beneath the skin-deep surface of Beverly Hills on this informative walking tour. You’ll veer from the mainstream tourist path and discover a fresh new way to see Los Angeles’ cultural attractions in what is known as the Golden Triangle in Beverly Hills. Explore often overlooked and tucked away side streets that have become a haven for art, architecture and gourmet foods.
Listen as your guide illuminates the stories behind the galleries and gardens found down the alleys. You’ll begin to see the 90210 the way the locals do. You’ll learn what makes the hidden side of Beverly Hills different from what most people see on the big screen. Bring your sweet tooth, as you’ll make plenty of pit stops at Los Angeles’ best sweet-treat destinations. Dig into a fluffy vanilla cupcake at Sprinkles, the bakery that’s earned celebrity status and is responsible for the recent cupcake craze, and learn about the chain’s devotion to sustainable practices. There will be plenty of time to ask your guide questions along the way and to stop at epicenters for gourmet cheeses and artisanal chocolates.
Check out an impressive family-owned gallery, stocked with international masterpieces by Rembrandt, Renoir, Dalí and many more famous painters. You’ll also get a peek at an underrated museum that’s well known among locals, a unique media museum that you probably wouldn’t find on your own.
And just because it’s so iconic, you’ll also hit one of the area’s most well-known attractions, Rodeo Drive. But instead of window-shopping, your guide will teach you about the historic architecture, local lore and relatively unknown details. By the time you finish your tour, you’ll see Beverly Hills the way the locals do.
