|About these ratings|
So you've seen where the stars shop, where they eat, where they surf and where they party. Now you want to see where they live. A variety of minibus tours provide amateur paparazzi a peek at the lifestyles of the rich and famous. You probably won't see the celebs themselves, but you can catch a glimpse of the homes of A-listers like Sandra Bullock, Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry, Tom Cruise, Madonna and more. Also, expect to see facades that once housed the likes of Lucille Ball, Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra. Along with the stars' abodes, buses usually make stops at the Walk of Fame, the Sunset Strip and Rodeo Drive.
According to recent travelers, the demeanor of your tour guide can make or break your trip. Travelers stuck on tours with grumpy or mumbling guides tend to wish they had just bought a map and done the tour on their own. Also be sure to check the weather for the day: Extreme heat or a sudden shower can put a damper on an open-top bus ride.
Starline Tours, LA City Tours and Amazing LA Tours earn high praise from recent star-seekers. Some tour companies will pick you up near the TCL Chinese Theatre; others will scoop you up directly from your hotel. Whichever you choose, you should be willing to part with your cash: A guided tour of movie stars' homes costs between $42 and $95 per adult and last from two to five hours, depending on the company.
