Starline Tours, known around the world as the pioneer of celebrity tours, today announced a new tour in partnership with Young Hollywood, which is set to launch on Saturday, August 11 and offers a guided look at some of the most iconic celebrity playgrounds of Los Angeles.
The two-hour live narrated tour will depart from Starline’s Tour Center at Hollywood & Highland, home of the Academy Awards, and will feature celebrity favorites in Hollywood, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Century City, Melrose and Fairfax districts. The 26-passenger bus with digital video/audio will immerse passengers into the world of Young Hollywood, the leading digital celebrity and lifestyle network for millennials.
Young Hollywood reaches 300 million monthly viewers and 12 million social media followers with 500 hours of content produced annually. The tour version will be live and rolling through the streets of Los Angeles neighborhoods.
The tour was conceived by RJ Williams, Founder and CEO of Young Hollywood, and created in partnership with Kami Farhadi, CEO of Starline Tours. Like the original Movie Stars’ Homes Tour conceived in 1935, this tour breaks new ground, featuring today’s young celebrities. No other tour has more insider knowledge and access to today’s Young Hollywood scene.
