Stories Of A Hollywood Tourist Guide

Hollywood Tour Stories- Author/Narrator Stephen Schochet researched Hollywood and also Disney tales and lore for 10 years while giving trips of Hollywood. He had the unique concept the stories could be told anywhere and that’s what led him to develop the critically acclaimed audiobooks “Remarkable Walt Disney” and also “Tales Of Hollywood”. Here he shares some stories that happened while he was in fact providing excursions:

On one scenic tour I explained the Fox Plaza, the building that was blown up in the movie Resist. A tourist asked me “How did they placed that structure back with each other so quickly?” * On the excursion we stop at Rodeo Drive. The people were returning to the bus after their go to and Steve Garvey came walking by. A life long Dodger fan I stated,” Hi there Steve.” Delighted for the recognition, he came by to satisfy the people on the bus. Regrettably, the entire team was from England as well as Germany as well as not a single person knew who he was. Hollywood Tour Fun!

* The day after OJ Simpson was apprehended, I was doing an excursion where we stopped in front of the Chinese Movie theater. My clients were looking at the handprints and also impacts, while I stretched my legs near a row of parked scenic tour buses. Two guys, one with a shooting electronic camera approached me. “Hi We’re from CNN. Are you a tour guide? We would like to interview you concerning OJ.” “Sure.” “Great. Roll the electronic camera. We’re speaking with a Hollywood tourist guide. So did your consumers ask you today about OJ’s house.” “Well today my people are from Romania. They are here for the Globe Cup. I do not believe they care about OJ.” “Well will you be including OJ’s house to the excursion?” “Possibly not since he lives west of the 405. We go east of the 405 and also we are so pressed for time. Enjoy Hollywood Tour!

I wouldn’t be amazed if we have some men who point at any kind of old home and also insurance claim that it’s OJ’s!” I was kidding however the press reporter took me rather seriously. “So tour guides do that do they? What excursion firm do you benefit?” I thought, that does this person think he is, Mike Wallace? I pointed at one of the buses possessed by a competing trip company. * When I first began training as a scenic tour bus chauffeur I rode with other overviews to see exactly how they did it.

One guy, unfortunately did not captivate himself to the customers with a patter of stagnant and sometimes sexist jokes. At one factor he revealed the Hollywood Indication, and told the unfortunate tale of starlet Peg Entwistle, that unable to succeed in the change from stage to screen, leapt fifty feet to her death from the top of the letter H. He completed the story with the tagline,” Obviously the last individual to jump was a tour guide that didn’t get tipped.” There was a pause and then an Australian customer from the rear of the bus shouted out,” Oh yeah? Well there’ll be an additional one tomorrow!”
