“I began giving tours in 1981 after earning my Master’s Degree in Urban Planning from UCLA – I haven’t stopped since!”


Cities are fun – especially when someone else can show you their hidden treasures! Hoffy Tours is dedicated to highlighting the best in cities and this is what I love to do.
The tours are educational, entertaining and unique – showing you hidden features of cities that you may have heard of but never quite had the time to explore.


Hoffy Tours, LLC, is an urban tour company whose primary goal is discovering the best in cities. The focus is on appreciation of the built environment – great architecture, interesting urban design, fun restaurants, engaging museums.

“Bill is an incredible tour guide. He’s funny, engaging and really knows the area. Bill felt like part of our group. We loved the food and learned a lot about Laguna and Orange County.”
