This was a great way to see a lot of the city in a short amount of time. My tour guide knew a lot and was very entertaining. I highly recommend!
Our night tour of Los Angeles was fantastic. Our driver/guide, Abel was great, knowledgable and hilarious! He made the tour. We saw all the places advertised and more.He knew his way around and drove really well. I would recommend this tour to everyone.
Fantastic intro to LA for my first night and visit to the city… managed to catch a rare clear night and the views from the observatory was fabulous!!
Tour guide was great and full of information. Great way to see the highlights of LA.
We were only in town for a couple days. This was a great way to get to see many things in a short period of time. The driver was informative and entertaining. Wish we would have stopped on Rodeo Dr. and in Hollywood for a bit longer, but over all its is worth the money!
If you don't have enough time to look around, it is good opportunity to look around.
The staffs are friendly, but just normal not special.
It was informative and fun. Our driver was very good. We were disappointed that the ad said we would spend 20 minutes in Hollywood and 1.5 hours at universal. Based on this we had spent the afternoon at Hollywood because we thought we were going to be at Universal for a while in the evening. This basically gave us no time at Universal which was one of the main things we wanted to do.
The driver didn't talk much about the different places and was very general about everything. He didn't take us close to the Hollywood sign. He reminded us about tipping and how much each of us should tip him (regardless of the service). When I gave him his tip (which he didn't deserve much, if any, because of the poor job), he looked at the money and huffed about it very rudely. No company should huff about their tip. They should appreciate they get anything and should not expect it. It is only given for good service.
The information on the tour itinerary was not accurate and we didn't get much help on the phone as well. The tour guide was well informed but he was driving with one hand and holding the microphone on the other hand for the whole tour.

the itinerary was fine, but our tour guide was lacking. Zero was friendly upon departure but lacked the ability to provide interesting or accurate information on the tour. He did not communicate clearly or effectively and just threw our random thoughts. He drove in some areas that were off the beaten path to avoid traffic and then paniced about being in residential areas at night without permission. This was more like having a taxi driver than a tour guide. I would not recommend this tour to others.

Our guide was mediocre at best. He talked alot but said nothing. The tour was fine but started late. We were dropped off at the Chinese Theatre for dinner and were told we had 60 minutes and that we had to leave on time. All the tourists were there but we waited 20 minutes for our bus to arrive and when it did the guide and Heather (?) had enjoyed smoking on it while driving around LA. It reaked of cigarette smoke but of course no windows to open. We then stopped down on Rodeo Drive and were told that we had 5 minutes to take pictures but guess what the guide and Heather stood behind the bus smoking for 20 minutes. The PA system worked at times but not usually so it just cut in and out. Save your money.
This tour was terrible.We had to get to their office 1 hour early as they didn't pick up from our hotel. The tour finished 1 hour earlier than advertised straight after the tour guide asked for his tip! We did not go to Santa Monica or Venice Beach (as advertised) there was no time for dinner. AWFUL
We were picked up at our hotell by a really grumpy driver, who yelled at us because we, as visitors to his city, should have understood that we could not wait for him by our hotel entrance; we should have been standing by the hig trafficed road nearby, even though we were told we was to get picked up by our hotel. The he started to "drive", allthough "race" would be a better description. We really wasn't sure we'd make it to their office alive.
Getting there, we were expecting a bit better treatment, but after half an hour we was sendt to the same kind of bus as in the first place, but this time with another driver, crossing our fingers he'd be driving safer... He did NOT.
I've never been more scared in my life, and if i'd known he had used one of his arms to hold the mic in which he constantly spoke hopelessly bad jokes, and told us how little he'dmiss us when he could let us off, i had been jumping off in the first light-crossing, if it wasn't for the fact that he usually didn't stop for red lights eighter.....
The "driving through, experiencing universal studios at night" was only a "you have to hurry through the shopping facilities that is next to Universal"-stop.
The best part (except for the scary driving up and down the steep hill), was the view from the viewpoint at the top of Mulholland drive, that was great. Problem is that according to the driver, this was not really a part of the ordinary trip, so you can't expect to see that view if you take the trip...
At the end of the trip, the driver had no way of understanding that his guest was really fed up, and he continued for more than an hour more than planned, ruining our other plans, even though everybody aboard the bus stopped getting out to see the sights he wanted to show us, and of course, then makinng even more bad jokes about us all.
