5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

We first want to say THANK YOU to Brandon our tour guide for sharing his Amazing wealth of knowledge of Anaheim, Universal and Hollywood. What a learning experience it was for us all. We had a lot of time to spend at universal studios and to tour Hollywood on our own at night. It is an extremely long day but well worth the time from an educational standpoint and just to see these two locations. We will definitely be recommending it to all our friends that head down to Disneyland and I will be sharing our experience on this tour. A definite must if you want to see Universal and Hollywood at night with all the lights.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

The driver was Juan, he was knowledgeable and funny. He kept everyone entertained. He also gave good tips for the visit at the park. Though, I recommend taking the tour of LA in daylight to properly view all the sights and be able to take photographs.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

Great bus trip. Our driver Bill was very informative and had great local knowledge. It was good to not have to drive out to Universal ourselves. The night tour was ok. More time in Hollywood would have been appreciated.
