Great experience
, Jul 2022
Great experience! The driver was funny and helped us with good directions of where and what to do when we stopped in the touristic places. Go with sneakers because you walk in many places.
Tour guide was horrible
, Jul 2022
Tour guide was horrible. Spent more time talking about what kind of vehicles people were driving and himself than anything else.
A great overview of LA and Hollywood
, Jun 2022
I found Josh to be hugely entertaining with his knowledge of LA and Hollywood and the who’s who of the motion picture industry. The tour covered a large area of LA and surrounding districts in a very comfortable “open” bus and all of it was interestingly presented and described. This tour (and Josh as the guide) was very enjoyable and is strongly recommended.
A great trip
, Jun 2022
Key was our very knowledgable and entertaining guide. She safely navigated the street of LA to show us all the sites. We had a great time
Disappointed travelers
, Jun 2022
Bus arrived to pick us up at hotel. We were told when we reach the office departure point we would be changed to another bus. This didn’t happen and we were all squeezed in like sardines. Others on the bus felt the same way, so we decided to cancel our tickets, and left the bus, hence those left on the bus would have been more comfortable. The bus was not the one on the advertisement and was grotty…very disappointed. The staff could or would not accept our ( and other passengers) opinions…
Good way to get a view of the city
, Jun 2022
It was a really good way of coming around in the city, and the tour guide Chad was really good. The only thing I missed was getting close to the Hollywood sign. There were some places we could have stopped for taking a good picture.
It was a good ride!! Too...

It was a good ride!! Too much time was spent to ride on the hills; just to show few celebrities homes, was a waste of time.
The best tour ever
, Jun 2022
Our guide was so well vexed with everything. He was friendly and went out of his way to make it memorable.
First LA tour 😎
, Jun 2022
I recommended this tour because you can see a lots of differents L.A point of view condensed in around 5 hours. I really appreciate the farmer market and phil's sandwichs and I recommended you our wonderful guide called Bee. She's funny and know LA by heart ♥
So glad we booked

Chad was a wonderful guide. Very informative and entertaining. Plenty of time to relax and sightsee from the can and also get out and explore. A great way to pack a lot of LA into a little time! Great for a quick trip. Would definitely recommend this tour.
Awesome tour
, Jun 2022
Great tour guide and perfect way to see LA spots quickly in a half day. Would definitely recommend to anyone in town for a short period of time.

Worth every penny

Talib our guide made the experience worth every penny. Only wish we could have gotten out at Justin Beiber’s former residence…😂
Fun day in LA
, May 2022
This was the best way to see the sites of LA and Hollywood. Chad, our driver had really done his research and his humour made the experience a lot of fun. Well worth a go. Highly recommended.
The tour was great except...
, May 2022
The tour was great except I never got to see the handprint at the Chinese theater. It was never mentioned to us during the tour that it was by the stars walk. We got off the bus candy were given a free gift coupon but nothing was mentioned about handprints. I had time to see it had I known cause we got back to bus 20 minutes early. I questioned the tour guide and he stated that it was part of tour. We stopped for about 5 minutes if that to get pics of Hollywood sigh. I appreciate the guides knowledge though So all in all a good tour just disappointed that all wasn’t shared.
Chad was informative,...
, May 2022

Great and loved it.

Great Tour
, May 2022
Chad was great. The tour was very informative and you don’t even realize it spanned over 5 hours. You get to see a lot of the city. A must do if you want a great overview of the area.
LA experience
