We had an amazing day, from the efficient pick up from the hotel to our driver John who was excellent with a his knowledge oF LA it was a good way to see LA with the limited time we had.

Thank you for submitting your review of your day with us on our Los Angeles tour. LA is a big place with a ton of attractions. Selecting a representative sampling for the time available is a challenge, we appreciate your recognition. I have forwarded your comments to John and he has asked me to express his appreciation for your kind words. We hope to have an opportunity to serve you again.

Over priced, stopped for little time at every place But the guide was good While booking over phone, i asked for promo code and I wanted to do it over app But the lady said the no discount which wasn’t true I lost out on the discount code
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
I appreciate your submitting a review, but, I must admit I am very confused by what you have said. First, we have no female employees or non-employees who answer our phones. It is correct that we have no "promo code" or discounts. I am curious as to how or where you felt we did have such a code. With your comments concerning the actual tour, I appreciate your saying that the guide was good. Although we do have two longer stops (an hour for lunch at Mel's, and 45 minutes on the Hollywood walk of fame) the other stops along the way are intended to give our guests a sampling of some of the popular tourist spots along our 100+ mile route. Comment from our guests have expressed appreciation for the number of quick (5-15 minute) photo opportunity stops we make along the way. Again, I am concerned as to the bases for your comment concerning the "lady" and the "promo code". It is possible that you made your reservation through a tour agency which may make promotional opportunities. If so, that would be something between the guest and that agency.

Ehh, could have been better!

We saw some great tourist places but we spent too much time on the bus. The Mel's dinner hour was a complete waste of time, food not good, service less than desirable. Would have much preferred more time at places and we just drove by Rodeo drive, not even able to drive down the street.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Thank you for submitting your comments. Los Angeles is a big place and what you have referred to as "great tourist places" are scattered around the county. Our 8 hour tour covers over 100 miles in order to show off those places. Unfortunately, it does mean a considerable amount of time in the bus. We do, however, provide numerous opportunities to get out of the bus at many locations along the way. Your opinion of the lunch stop at Mel's as being a "complete waste of time" raises a challenge we face with all of the attractions we include on our tour. We opt to include the locales which receive the most positive reviews from our guests. Mel's is one of those locations. It has received hundreds of positive reviews here and elsewhere. With respect to Rodeo Drive, the City of Beverly Hills has recently imposed significant access restrictions. In response to guest requests, we do, as you indicated, "drive by" Rodeo which does provide a photo opportunity. Thanks again for taking the time to express your opinions.

Very nice!! Driver took his time and made sure we got to see all that we wanted!! Worth the money!! Convenient by picking you up right at your hotel.

Thank you for your kind words and recommendation. Although our tour itinerary was established to include as many of the local attractions as possible, we always do what we can to accommodate special requests. One of our most popular features, as you mentioned, is picking up our guests at their local hotels eliminating the inconvenience of them having to go to some distant location to join the tour. Thanks again for sharing your most welcome comments with us.

An overview of Los Angeles!

, Mar 2022
We had a thorough tour of the area of Los Angeles. Pick up from Long Beach was easy! Our guide was knowledgeable all aspects of our tour down to noting all the route numbers we were taking. It was a long day with a few stops. The stops were brief, giving you a quick flavor of the area. Lunch at Mel's Diner was excellent. We enjoyed our tour!
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
I'm glad you enjoyed the tour. We try to present a tour which includes a sampling of what Los Angeles has to offer. We have opted to include many short stops in several places rather than extended periods in fewer locations. I have shared your comments with your driver and I will let the Mel's management know of your review also. Thank you for coming with us. We hope to have an opportunity to serve you again.

Thank you for review. We have worked hard to provide tours that show as many attractions as possible in the time available. Los Angeles is a big place with myriad attractions, selecting a sampling for our guests is a big challenge. Thank you for letting us know that you appreciated our selection.

Superb tour. My 15 yr old son rated it best ever. Alberto was vastly knowledgeable about Hollywood, charismatic, dedicated and enthusiastic. He really brought LA alive for us in the limited time we had available. If you only have a short time in LA and want to make the most of it this is the tour for you.

Perfect tour of downtown L.A. without having to brave the traffic! Jim was a very knowledgeable guide who pointed out lots of interesting sights, provided added information and was very responsive to the needs of his passengers. We were very pleased with the quality of the tour including downtown L.A., Beverley Hills, Hollywood, the movie studios, Hollywood signs, etc. Excellent tour if you only have a limited time in the L.A. area and prefer a smaller tour group.
