Loved it, so much time to explore by yourself and so much fun information
We were happy that we booked this tour as it gave us a look at Down Town LA and ample time to do our own thing as well.really enjoyed the day. Guide was informative and everything ran on time.
Alex our driver was wonderful. His commentary was informative and interesting and he went out of his way to give you photo ops from the bus. He gave great advice as to what to look at while we were there at Hollywood Blvd and what to avoid. I was the only person who took the Venice beach option and he was very helpful with ideas of what to see. Would definitely recommend to anyone with limited time to get a taste of Hollywood.
Our driver Alex was amazing! He was patient at each hotel pickup and thoroughly explained every step of our journey. We learned so much at each stop and all along the way as well. He even made sure we saw an orange tree! Five stars without a second thought ... a great way to spend a day and learn about Hollywood, Santa Monica and Venice beaches and so much more!
Enjoyable day with our Lux bus driver Kenneth who was informative, friendly and timely. Was awesome visiting Santa Monica, Beverley Hills, Farmers Market and Hollywood. Would recommend this trip to first time visitors to LA to get an overview of the area.
We are still raving to anyone who listens about our trip. We absolutely loved it. It was just enough, not too overtiring, the driver was awesome and the stops were perfect. I am now telling anyone at all that is coming or having friends coming to California to do this and not waste time driving up to LA and figuring out where to park and how to get around. This is absolutely the best deal in town. The bus was gorgeous and so comfortable, if I wasn't so busy looking at everything, I might have settled in for a nap. We live in Southern Orange County and refuse to drive further north than Santa Ana so this was perfect for us. The only problem I had was finding the bus terminal, since we live here we had to go there. They could have just told us they were actually located in the parking garage at Garden Walk, but didn't mention that until three desparate phone calls later! And we were late because of an accident on the 5 so spent 15 minutes driving around the block looking for a bowling alley and a fitness center, when they're actually located in the parking structure. But other than that, PERFECTION!
Must do tour of Hollywood, our driver was fantastic and was very informative, we had plenty of time to wander around at our leisure to buy gifts and take photos. If you are in LA worth booking thumbs up.
The Hollywood Highlights and LA Beaches Tour was fun. Bus picked us up near hotel, and dropped us at the GardenWalk to board the bus to Hollywood. The commentary by the driver on the way up was fun at first. I guess when you are driving tourists around day after day, you need to come up with new things so some of what she was pointing out was incorrect. All in all, she was great and had me laughing.
For those of you who have never been to Hollywood, it is not the cleanest city so be forewarned. If you decide to stay in Hollywood the full three hours, go to the Max Factor Museum on Highlands around the corner from the Dolby Theater. For $15, this is a fun place to visit to see some true Hollywood memorbilia. After, head next door to Mel's Diner for lunch.
For the beaches part, we chose Santa Monica. Probably not the best since we had been at Disneyland all week. The pier is great carnival fun and the Santa Monica Beach is spectacular.
Good tour. Guide was very informative and kept us entertained with his personal experiences. The Route 66 stop itself is worth this trip. Recommended!!
An interesting tour, would have liked to see more of Rodeo Drive and Beverly Hills. Not alot to do in Hollywood however we were given plenty of time to explore Hollywood. The drivers recommendation that we go to Santa Monica instead of Venice Beach was fantastic and we had a great time there.
The driver was fanastic and very informative. He made the drive interesting and fun.
