5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

Such an amazing experience - I would recommend this tour to anyone in the Los Angeles area. Our guide, Steven, was such a friendly person with an obvious passion for nature. The walk itself was far easier than I thought it would be and I was surprised when told we'd reached the highest point in Los Angeles! The views are breath-taking and the trip inside the Griffith Observatory was fascinating. Doing the sunset hike was so worth it as the sunset is unlike any I've ever seen before. I would definitely do this again were I in Los Angeles.

One of the best tours I have ever been on. Our guide, Stephen, was very knowledgable and friendly. I would highly recommend this tour!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Good tour and knowledgeable tour guide. Only complaint was that meeting point was not clearly marked and guide was not identifiable and took some time to locate him.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Would recommend this tour to anyone: Great views, tour guide JS was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Also the quick side trip about 15, 20 min inside the Griffith Observatory was very informative for this short time.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

One of the iconic sights of Los Angeles is the Hollywood sign, together with the nearby Griffith Observatory, set among the hills. I liked the idea of walking the hills and thought it would be more pleasant, as a single traveller, to do the hike with an organised group rather than on my own. It certainly paid off! - our guide, Eric, was very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of interesting information about the area which I doubt I would have known about otherwise. The Batman connection is particularly beguiling! You'll have to take the trip to find out what it is!. As a visitor to LA, there was certainly a lot to take in, not just the views in themselves, but the history of the area which Eric was very well up on. I would just add that the timing of your walk could be important, depending on your level of fitness. It was slightly overcast in the morning, when I climbed the hills, which suited me: I'm not an unfit person, but I did find it more pleasant walking under these conditions rather than I would have done later in the day when it was far hotter. In case this is a concern to you, Eric does ensure that everyone can keep up and you don't feel intimidated if you get a bit behind. The emphasis is on enjoyment more than anything else .... go see!

Our guide J.S. was very knowledgeable and made sure everyone was looked after on the tour. The hike went smoothly and the scenery was fantastic! I'd do it again and recommend it to anyone who likes an active holiday.

Our tour guide was Eric, who was very knowledgeable, well spoken, and considerate of our needs and safety. Highly recommend this tour and was able to do the hill climbing while admittedly not in the best of shape. Just take your time - and Eric will take care of you. Great Job!
