Diane was amazing! This was one of the best food tours we have ever had. The Farmers Market was excellent and we made a entire day out of it. I strongly recommend trying this tour it is a little piece of heaven in a big busy town. Thank you Mellting Pot Tours.
Tour guide Diane was fantastic- so friendly and knowledgeable. The food was great too, and the place is so interesting. We ended up with a private tour as we were the only ones booked in for that day. Would recommend to anyone visiting LA!
Very disappointing, not typical of the usual high quality of Viator products. The first thing the tour guide did when he pulled the van out of the parking lot was to dump us in front of a tourist trap shop most of us had already walked away from before the tour started. Twenty minutes later he took us on a high speed run through the areas where entertainers live. He seemed very interested in letting us know how well connected he was with all the stars. Photo opportunities were few and far between because he drove so fast, never slowing down. He talked extremely fast and the van's earphone sound system was tinny and scratchy. When we learned the only Los Angeles City Tour thing he planned to do was to dump us at Farmers Market, we opted out of being steered to another tourist store. Definitely not worth the price we paid. Viator, please find a more qualified local provider for this tour.
Your guide was nice. Very fast driving. Didnt see as many homes as promised on the tour. Your is cheaper to buy in Hollywood than viator so that was disappointing. Would recommend others to go on the tour. You cannot cover as much as the tour can on your own.
Lisa our your guide was fantastic, really enjoyed the tour and had a great time
The tour guide was great and friendly but the tour. was boring. Especially for the price- I would not reccommend this tour
We were shuffled on to the wrong tour although I asked the person collecting the tickets if this was the right one for us.WE had an interesting but overly long city tour but missed out on seeing the stars homes which was the main draw of this purchase.I also found a lot of star references rather old instead of more contemporary stars.
There was a very mandatory demand for 15-20percent tipping with the tour guide standing at the door watching every tip going into his bucket .As New Zealanders this felt very mercenary.
although we enjoyed this tour too much time was spent driving round the Movie Stars Homes considering that most of the time we were only looking at gates to their driveways,
Not enough time was spent on the Walk of Fame - we very rushed
We all felt that the sign in the tour mini bus asking for $8 to $10 per person tip for the driver was out of order, it should be down to the individuals on the tour to decide what they wanted to give.
You get to see a lot for this price. Many houses of the stars and locations around the city. Bus is comfortable. Try not to wonder a lot since time is short and the driver will try to go as many places as he can.
The tour itself was good but there were a few issues that totally spoilt it for us.
The pick up from the hotel was 20 min late. After 15 min I tried to ring the contact number but no answer - then the bus turned up. A stressful start!
We then arrived at the office. We had a voucher but still had to wait in line with people buying a ticket - why bother to pre-book? This took 30 minutes.
When we eventually got our second voucher we were directed to our bus which had been waiting for an hour with people on board - this were pissed off. Out driver/guide greeted us with 'oh you have eventually turned up!' - lucky for her I did not hear her at first!
This is the worst tour I have had with Viator and I doubt I will use you again because why pre book when you still have to stand in line and this has been raised before in your reviews and you have done nothing about it.
A complete waste of part of my holiday.
Lovely hotel, great location, right on Hollywood walk of fame, and other popular tourist attractions. However, the weekend we were there, the hotel was having some kind of "Promotion" going on; extremely crowded - couldn't even get near the pool !
Great fun! Our driver was Alan, he was very entertaining :)
Awful. They basically want the price againvin tips and harass you when you don't comply. Bus driver was aggressive to other drivers. Constantly getting off bus for 5 minutes then had to wait 20 minutes for everyone to get back on
Very interesting! A bit long if you traveling with the kids but very entartaining for adults!
Excellent guide. Very knowledgable and friendly. The food and the location was awesome.
Had great L A tour with our very entertaining guide Michael. He showed us around all the main hotspots as well as a tour of all the movie stars homes, although hard to tell since was mainly a lot of gates with security hedges! Recommend if limited time, very good guide and tour!
We were told to arrive at 9.00 am trip finally left at 10.20 am but still ended at 12.30
Bus had windows unlike others we had seen so photos didn't come out as we had expected

Really enjoyed going up into the hills on the small but very comfortable bus! Our driver (Mike) was wonderful--entertaining and knowledgeable without being overly ridiculous. British as it turned out--and so am I!
Problem however, with such a small amount of time for lunch at the Farmer's Market, and then when we rushed back to meet the return bus, it felt like we were stranded for quite a while, and there was a lot of confusion about who would take us back. It got sorted after about a half an hour--but it didn't feel like a good end to an otherwise very good trip! You need to do something better about that turn-around part of the tour.
guide had alot to say but we couldnt understand most of it because of his accent. only 3 houses on trip could be seen properly the rest were behind trees and bushes,could have been anyones.would have been nice to be taken nearer to hollywood sign instead of taken to beverley hills sign for photo. on the plus side weather was lovely and the taxi driver from airport was very informative.
More a list celebrity homes please didn't know many that was shown on the tour.
Awesome trip, tour guide was very informative and would highly recommend to all visitors to LA. Be a tourist in your own home. Loved it!!
Thankyou Kendall for our tour. Your knowledge of the history of the market and the experiences you gave us were excellent and have definetly made us want to come back and explore LA more thoroughly. There is a special side to LA that we now know about. Do not miss this tour if you want a special insight into LA life.
Kendall was fab and really knowledgable, the food tasting was excellent and I will always squeeze my donuts from now on!!!
