Located in the heart of Hollywood, Starline Tours is the largest tour company in Los Angeles, offering a full range of tours. We have been featured on hit shows like Ellen, American Idol, the Muppet Movies, Iron Man 3, NBC’s Today Show and showcased on the Travel Channel. We’ve also been written about in the LA Times, USA Today and other reputable newspapers and travel magazines from around the world.
Starline originated as the Movie Stars Homes Tour when Mr. Sid Grauman, creator of the famous Chinese Theatre, gave his chauffeur (Bud Delp) the idea of driving people around Hollywood to see the homes of celebrities, back in 1935. We are still the leader in this tour today.
For movie enthusiasts, we have the Warner Brothers VIP Tour and The Movie Locations Tour (presented with Turner Classic Movies), which recently has been added to our tour selection.
Starline’s City Sightseeing Los Angeles covers over 100 miles of route, with guided narration in nine different languages, making it the largest Hop-on Hop-off service in the world!
Also included in our tour portfolio, are our Grand Tour of L.A, City and Beach tours, 1-Hour Fun Tours and Night Tours. We also have tours to take you to Southern California’s major attractions like Universal Studios, Disneyland, Six Flags Magic Mountain, Knott’s Berry Farm and Sea World. We also offer full day excursions to San Diego and Tijuana.
In addition, we have a large fleet of deluxe highway coaches available for charter to local clubs and organizations as well as groups from all over the world.
For the guest’s convenience, we have pick-up and drop-off services available at over 250 hotels in the greater Los Angeles and at hotels in the Anaheim Resort area around Disneyland. We are headquartered in Hollywood and have a terminal in the Santa Monica/West LA area (11857 Santa Monica Boulevard). Our Anaheim terminal is located at the Travelodge across from Disneyland.
Founded in 1935, Bud Delp started the Movie Stars Homes with three limousines and drove star struck tourists around Los Angeles to see celebrity homes. In the mid 60’s, our President and owner Vahid Sapir, who was at the time an exchange student from Iran with an entrepreneurial spirit, became Bud’s protégé. By the end of the decade, he took out a $50,000 loan, bought the company from Bud and built Starline to what it is today – a thriving tour company with a large fleet of open-top vans, closed-top double-decker buses and open air trolleys offering a variety of tours given by our fun, up-to-the-minute informed drivers.
As part of Hollywood history with 80 years of experience in the tour industry and the largest number of celebrity encounters of any tour company, Starline Tours is the #1 choice for your Los Angeles sightseeing adventure.
