Our driver, although it can't remember her name, was AWESOME. She was funny, witty, and very knowledgable about the areas we drove through and was sure to point out certain spots that are in movies, shows, etc.
We did the VIP Tour and would recommend it to anyone. Its not cheap but we felt worth it and the lunch is just delicious
Pacific Coast Sightseeing and Tours picked us up at the specified location in a timely manner. The driver was very knowledgeable in points of interest. I would definitely use this company again.
I highly recommend to get front of the line tickets. Front of the line tickets are the way to do universal studios because you get priority entrance to all of the attractions.
Amazing place, the transport to Universal from Anaheim was comfortable and the driver was hilarious and interesting, we loved him!!! He gave us the best tips on how to fit all the rides in, which was extremely helpful. Universal is huge, wish more of there rides were 'real' as i felt there was alot of 3D/4D. Jurassic Park ride was amazing we went on it twice and loved getting wet as it was a very hot day.
Okay, we were not that impressed. The driver was friendly and a good driver, but the tour itself was poorly organised. To start with, our tickets that we printed said that the tour started at 7.45am and that hotel pick-ups would commence 30 - 60 mins prior to this time. We thought this was great because we wanted to be at Universal nice and early - before the gates opened.
The actual pick up time was 8.20 am from our hotel and then we went to some sort of depot where we sat in the bus for more than 20 mins. We got to Universal about 10 mins after the gates had opened and luckily it was a Tuesday, so this didn't affect our queue times too much. Still not what we had expected. We expect that if we had used the public transport (trains etc.) that we had researched, we could have gotten ourselves there before 10 am.
On the way back was even worse! We had to be back on the bus by 6pm (park closing time), but then we waited for about 30 minutes for someone who had obviously decided not to use the return journey. The bus departure time was made very clear early in the day, so why did we even wait for this person? Maybe 10 mins would have sufficed?
Then, there were apparently 16 scheduled hotel stops and it appears ours was going to be one of the last. We went past our hotel on the other side of the road and were not permitted to get off. We got off at the next hotel stop and walked back to our hotel. It was close to 9pm by the time we got back to our hotel with dinner. We really expected to have been back at a reasonable time for dinner with a 6pm departure from Universal. Perhaps this needs to be spelled out (you'll get back really late!) when people are booking this tour. When we got off at about 8.30pm, only around 6 stops (of the 16) had actually been made! We were not going to wait for the other 10 stops. That's crazy. You need a max of 3 stops and people will just have to get to one of those places.
It was okay, some good rides at universal bit similar to florida, was disappointed with the studio backlot tour. The evening tour of la was okay, was underwhelmed in la, expected more. Your pick up was on time, and host was knowledgeable and upbeat
We were picked up by a shuttle bus and transferred to a depot, it was VERY hot in the bus while we waited for them to sort the passengers out. No consideration was given to the excessive heat of the day. The driver talked non stop, she told us all her business and her families business. She offered to "chase down " any celebrities we saw on the way. She slowed down to point out things along the way. We had purchased VIP tickets at Universal Studio's but missed our breakfast . Wouldn't do this again
We had a good bus driver and arrived at Universal on the dot of 9.00. The coach was new and comfortable. We were picked up exactly on time and had a great day at the park.
Doing what: Universal Studios Hollywood with Transport
great way to get to there when staying at anaheim ,well organised
I had a very positive experience with this Tour Company. A trip to Disneyland is one of the most memorable experiences in one’s life. The atmosphere of the park is live and filled with joy. However, this fun-filled experience could be quite expensive buying individual attractions tickets like the Universal Studios, Seaworld and three days to disneyland park and theme park. Southern
California CityPass is a bonus and worth it. It was not crowded the time we went, so there was no need for fast pass. Experience was awesome. The whole family and I enjoyed it.

I took my son, daughter in law and 6year old grandson to Universal. It was my 4th trip but their first. We all had a ball, what a fantastic place, especially the studio tour, they enjoyed the Jurassic park ride and also the Water World show which is not to be missed, very professionally done.
Skipping the line is great but we used it on a Tuesday and it wasn't that busy anyway so maybe wasted our money, but on a busy day or the weekend this would be worth every cent!
Service was good- on time, clean bus, picked up and dropped off on time. Would recommend.
Bus was clean and on time. Driver was a driver we had on another tour a few days before however he was very bright and alot of fun. He gave very useful information on the ride to Universal studios and allowed plenty of time for pick up that evening.
