Great trip, both the bus tour and Universal were amazing. The home tour lasted two hours which was just enough and was a great way to see not only the houses but Hollywood in general. We had five hours at the park and considering it was a Saturday had more than enough time to do the rides before leaving. Great time, great tour, def do early in your trip as it will show you where to hang out in Hollywood.

Enjoyed both tours especially Universal Studios although I booked as one tour it was actually two seperate tours so had to go on the stars homes tour first then when that arrived back at the office had to go in the office again and wait around for another b us to go to universal studios.

Would certainly recommend Universal Studios

Great day! The movie stars homes tour was fab, although we didn't see anyone famous. The guide was very charismatic and funny, and told us lots of useful and useless information!!
We had over 5 hours in Universal Studios which was actually more than enough time! Great!

Very entertaining driver.
Unfortunately all you can see on Movie Star Tour is 8m high hedges.
Universal Studios were great.

A fun way to see the homes of the stars and Beverley Hills in general. Tour of Universal Studios was informative and fun with a couple of movie experiences along the way.

3 star rating: Worth doing

Loved it all until the end of the night when we were delayed for over half an hour for our transfer back to the hotel, spoilt what would have been a perfect day. The whole end was disorganized and unprofessional and is the only reason I am giving 3 instead of 4 stars.

The tour was great but they are a bit unorganised in the mornings and directing people to their right bus. I don't believe I was on the exact tour I booked (as it included the market) - but covered everything I wanted and I was happy. The tour guide knew his stuff well.

The visit to Universal Studios was great and very funny. The attractions of WaterWorld, Sherk, The Simpsons and the tour of the studios were of the best. As for the route of the famous houses was quite heavy and you do not see much, you have the feeling that they can not be any big stars. Profit after half an hour wandering around the hills, pretty boring. In short, if you recommend Universal but the visit by the house would not do.

The tour itself is very good. However if the company can be more organised in allocating drivers and arranging the time then it will be good. I'd had the tour 2 days in a row, and always late from schedule time.

The tour was good, had a great day. But not long enough at universal studios and a 45 minute return journey took nearly 2 HOURS !!!! The driver got lost on they way to our hotel not a good end to our day .

The tour guide didn't go to half of the homes listed. eg: Playboy mansion/Marilyn Monroe/Spellings homes. Saw the pink palace in the distance. Universal Studios however was excellent.

My guests and I have very mixed feelings about our experience with the tour. The initial pick up was approximately a half hour late and when we arrived at the tour start it was very confusing, long lines, equipment that was not working to print vouchers. Once we received out vouchers, we asked if we had time to use the bathroom since it had been quite some time since we had left out hotel by this time. We were told there was time and to our surprise the the van was gone and they had to bring it back to pick us up. Now the tour took a turn for the better once we started out star home tour. We had a great tour guide and we thoroughly enjoyed this part of our day. He dropped us of at the Farmers Market where we were to have lunch and told not to be late for our 12.30 pick up even though we were told we would be at Universal Studios at Noon. We were not late, but waited again at least 25-30 minutes. We arrived at Universal Studios about 1.30 and our pick up was at 6.00 pm. There was no way to see everything there and be finished at six. We opted not to ride back with the tour and paid more money to take the Metro back to our hotel. We spent a great part of a day riding around to pick up one tour where the other left off and going back to the Grauman Theater about three or four times during our trip. This tour was expensive and we left saying we would not use your company again.
