Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Go Los Angeles Card. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
We bought a 2 day card as a 3 day card onwards makes it very expensive since universal studios is added to it. If you don't intend to go to universal studios, 2 day pass is enough as you will realise you can't travel to all the places included in the card without travelling for hours. Saved us money
A bit disappointed wasn't aware the card expired at 5:30pm, so a one day pass is not even a full day.
Options on tour were okay. But be sure to note that even if the attraction is open after 5:30, the Go Card scan machine is shut off at that location so you can't use it anymore. Tried to use the card at Pacific Park at 6pm and couldn't because the card couldn't be validated. Very silly.
Positive that we planned well what we should do every day. You get to see much, because you want to use the card.
It was worth doing, but for tourists you have a long way to travel in order to collect it..only three spread out locations to collect it and being such a vast city this can pose logistical issues for tourists and cut down our travel time.
would have rated better if it included metro travel around LA as the attractions were spread all over the city.
What's the use of offering studio tours when the studios don't have a free slot during the two days where the pass was valid.
The studios are closed on the weekends so, we couldn't do those, and with only one day left on the card, We had to scramble to partially visit two of them, the ones that weren't booked out already. I feel I barely broke even but with much hassle. Still the places I did visit made having the card worthwhile.
The card offers you a lot of attractions, but I took out 2 stars for the fact that it can only be used until 5:30 PM, and seing that most attraction begins around 10:00 AM, it does not give you enough time to do everything you would like, even if you plan ahead, especially knowing the kind of traffic that L.A has.
Overall: Good card, but should not have a time limit.
In all honesty, its hard to say if the card is worth it. we bought the three day card, most of the included things seemed to have restrictions placed on them (always had the option to "upgrade" to better things when checking in). Probably would not do the card again.
This is good but alot of places you can go is very far away from each other. I have bought a New York pass before and all the attraction are quite close to each other. Each place on the LA card are far.
Used card with no problem. Plan in advance to make the most out of it as la is a big place.
The card was good, but found we didn't have enough time to do all that we would have liked.
I think this card is ideal for people who want to be nonstop on their holiday. Otherwise there are so many options with this card that you feel like you kinda wasted money on it because you didn't get to do most of the things in it. If you were able to use the card for longer it wouldn't seem as though your missing out on as much.
You might want to update your listings as to what the card includes. VERY disappointed to find out when we went to book the Paramount Studio tour that it is no longer included in the Go LA Card. As well, you can only get admission up to 5:30 pm for some attractions, even though they stay open later than that. You really need to plan ahead as reservations are needed and you need to take into account travel time.
Los Angeles is just too big and traffic too slow to make this cost-effective, unless you limit your visits to one geographical area (Hollywood, downtown, Santa Monica) per day. We had a one day pass. I had planned a studio tour for the end of the day and left from Santa Monica with a little over an hour to get there, but traffic made that impossible and we missed the tour.
some of the attractions that was on our card was not available at the time we wanted a bit dissapointing.
Not too worth it to buy unless you are driving. Most of the places of interest needs to travel by car.
Viator website gives wrong information about this card. I bought it for Movies Stars Homes tour & Legoland (including Sea Life) as was stated at their website. As appeared, the Movies Stars Homes tour wasn't the one that I wanted (it was departing from Santa Monica NOT from Hollywood Boulevard). The Legoland didn't include the Sea Life as was promissed on Viator's website. Madam Tussauds was surprisingly included though on their website it was the Wax Museum (which is also their in Hollywood).
Not a great deal unless you use 5 days or more. Had to pay full admission to the water park because they claimed they couldn't use the discount from this card!
What a rep-off. Once you get the card they tell you that certain providers are not part of the deal Paramount Pictures. Further more you book your ticket for the Hollywood sites tour and the vendors decide to cancel the trip as only people with the card booked on that day. Do not waste your money
Dont even bother with this, its a waste of money...the places you can get into arent even that good and they close early so by the time you finish from one place and go to the next the places close. The card is only valid til 5pm also.
Overall, this card is a waste of money.
The pass we had was for two days and we were unable to use the pass much for the issues of the time set (pass to end at 5:30 pm) and some places were closed without notice- we lost the use of the card for a complete day-due to the hours of card use allowed- this is not suitable for a tourist - I wouldn't want to lose that much money again!
I was not aware that I had to pick up in Beverly Hills though this company. You can buy them at almost any travel desk too (I learned later) so do that if you wish but don't buy through Viator unless you are in Beverly Hills area. I had to make a 4 hour round trip to get it.
It would be cheaper to just go to the attractions because unless you use it on all of the expensive attractions it is not worth the money. Very disappointed with this apparent deal and the money I wasted on it.
