Meet Your Favorite Celebrity
Combine a private tour of Hollywood and Beverly Hills with the exclusive chance to meet your favorite movie star, television performer or recording artist. Insider connections with top entertainment agents and managers afford you an audience with a high-profile celebrity of your choice (if available), usually in exchange for a donation to the star’s preferred charity.

Marina del Rey Yacht Cruise
Step aboard a magnificent yacht and cruise beautiful Marina del Rey, one of the largest man-made small-ship harbors in the world. Your personal guide and crew will cater to your every whim as you soak in the sun and enjoy a gourmet lunch.

Malibu Wine Tasting by Helicopter
Fly above downtown Los Angeles and Hollywood, and get a bird’s eye view of Bel-Air’s mansions and Santa Monica’s beaches; then land at a 1,000-acre private winery nestled in the hills of Malibu. After touring the estate and vineyards, you’re invited to a personal wine tasting, where the vintner has selected a very special bottle of wine for you to take home.

Joshua Tree National Park
Meet your private guide in Palm Springs and travel by Hummer through the Mohave Desert, where you’ll view the Park’s namesake Joshua trees and other exotic plants. During your visit, you’ll also explore mysterious rock formations, visit a desert oasis and see historic mining settlements.
