This is the only way to see L.A. Hollywood, Beverley Hills etc.if you are only visiting for two or three days. The tour guide and driver John was excellent and really new a great deal about the area we visited.It was money well spent and an enjoyable and worthwhile experience.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2014

John, our guide, was outstanding. He was very knowledgeable of local sites and spoke of individuals of note. The bus was comfortable and the length of tour just right. Enjoyed the trip immensely.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2014

John , our tour driver and guide was excellent. He took the time to show and explain the sites we were seeing. With my limited knowledge of L.A., I though John covered most if not all of the areas that we wanted to see. We asked John about the differences in the motion picture studio tours. He explained the differences and gave us his recommendation and why he would choice that one. An extra hour on the trip would have given a little long in the Hollywood stars area. I would highly recommend the tour and thought the price was reasonable.

4 star rating: Recommended April 2014

The guide is great. Friendly and knowledgeable. On time. 3 short stops but would have been better if stops were longer. Stop to see Hollywood sign was a disappointment as sign was so far away.

3 star rating: Worth doing April 2015

I wanted the full day trip and only received the half day trip. Was very disappointed.

3 star rating: Worth doing May 2014

could've been a good way to get the lay of the land, but the driver/guide was pretty selective about playing to some segments of his audience not others .. didn't really learn much more than his personal opinions on things and his life story. frustrating
