This is a great way to see the city particulary a large city like Los Angeles .... we were able to transfer to different routes very easily ...the drivers and all the people that were working at the stops were very freindly and helpful.

This is a great way to see LA

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Great way to see Los Angeles in a short amount of time. Staff were very helpful and informative. Had a great time visiting Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, Venice Beach and Marina Del Rey.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

The Hop-on Hop-off bus covered a huge part of LA and we were able to see a lot more of the city than what we would have, if we were trying to do it on our own. You also don't have to worry about the traffic, which is fantastic. The narration was interesting and gave a lot of extra information, which we enjoyed. Be warned that LA is a big city and there is a LOT of ground to cover, so if you plan to do this in one day, you'll have to start as early as possible and probably stay on the buss for most of the day. If you have more than one day I would suggest getting passes for multiple days as the busses really do cover most of the city.

These are the best way to get around and see what you want and when. We went all the way to Santa Monica and Venice Beach all on the bus. We rode it all day long.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Hop Off Hop Off is a great way to see Los Angeles. We bought the 48 Pass, so the first day we did the Red and Purple Route. The second day we did the Yellow and Green. We stayed at the Universal Hilton, which the Blue Connector picked us up each day to go to the Chinese Theatre to start our day.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Loved this. Was a great way to see all the sights. Had a 3 day ticket. Absolutely worth buying for multiple days. Drivers helpful and pleasant.
