Vintage Venice Reel to Real Tours presents their second annual Venice Holiday Walking Tour. Once a year, the Venice Canals sparkle with the reflection of the holiday lights. Vintage Venice takes you there. You'll start out the afternoon traveling back in time over a hundred years as Jonathan Kaplan, tour guide for the Los Angeles Historic Theatre Foundation and a longtime Venice resident, shows you film clips via iPad going back to 1910. Watch long-gone canals, roller coasters and pleasure piers spring back to life before your eyes while standing at the actual locations. Watch long-gone roller coasters, movie stars and pleasure piers spring back to life before your eyes while standing at the actual locations. You'll see where Chaplin put on his iconic derby and mustache for the first time in 1914, where Jim Morrison spent the summer of '65 writing poetry on a rooftop, where Schwarzenegger pumped iron and much more. Then stroll modern Venice's bike path, Ocean Front Walk, graffiti pit, basketball courts and murals. As the sun sets, the tour will head over to see the festive holiday lights along the canals.
The reviews on Goldstar have been great and I talked to Jonathan he has been doing these tours for several years. There are just a few tickets left for the 28th, but Jonathan will open it up for 2 more additional participants, you can contact him direct at[masked]-8687. On Goldstar the cost $25.00 plus the Goldstar fee of $5.00.
Do Not RSVP until you have purchased your Ticket, there are limited slots available.
For those interested we will also go to dinner after the tour. I will post the restaurant details a week before the event, it will be some where in the Venice area probably on Main Street.
This involves walking 3.5 hours so please make sure you are comfortable and fit enough to participate. We will take breaks during the tour, but I suggest you wear comfortable shoes and warm clothing. There is free street parking. Check out the Goldstar suggestions and reviews
