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.
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!
unfortunately due to the flight delay could not be in this tour but hope will have another chance to do it
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.
I could not do the Night Tour due to distance and time constrain. I rang the tour operator in Los Angeles that day, and I was told to go to the meeting area which is close to the airport (address was given). But my hotel was far enough (plus the traffic situation) that I could not to get there on time. The tour operator advised that I contact Aviator when I get back to Australia (I got back last week) and that I will be refunded for the tour as it was beyond my control. The person I spoke to has given me his name.
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.
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.
We were extremely upset and totally disappointed with this tour as the itinerary states quite clearly that we would get 1.5 hours at universal city walk , the driver said you have 45 mins ! Absolutely no time for dining or a leisurely walk , when I questioned this , I was told they NEVER stop there that long ! Also when we went to Hollywood the driver told us which shop we could use the bathroom with out having to buy anything ! Felt he was connected to this establishment , as we had no problems with using the facility's of other stores .
Tour guy recommended what he'd do when we arrived at Universal Studios and that was 'Girls and a drink' got an impression like he was some kind of dirty old man, we were the youngest on the tour but still. I think its better to go during the day so you can see things
