The bus tour itself covered most of what I wanted to see in L.A. The recorded commentary, however, was horrible. The information given was strictly where celebrities died, where some lived, and where they had been spotted eating. No history, no information on architecture, etc. I took out the headphones and enjoyed the ride, since the info was pretty shallow.
We chose the red route and stopped for lunch at the farmers market. After lunch the bus back was full and we had to sit inside. Because of the poor visibility we could not enjoy the last part of the tour (bus windows were covered in advertising, making it impossible to see anything!).
We bought a 3 day pass and it was fantastic and easy to use. We saw everything we had planned on seeing. Buses were clean and drivers were friendly and helpful. Only one small complaint - the long distance between stop 14 and 15 on the red line. Would have loved a stop half way as the walk to and from the Forever Hollywood Cemetery was very long! And then it was closed anyway. The weather was perfect as well, which was a bonus.
The tour around the red route was OK but the pre-recorded narration on the headphones wasn't in sync with where the bus actually was so we had either just driven pas the place they were referring to or had not arrived at it. Only had the 24 hour ticket and realistically this was not long enough to do more than one route
Very bad experience in finding the stops in downtown - there is none at all! The drivers drops me at a place where that shouldn't be a stop! I waited there for the next bus and it didn't come by as I saw it on the other street!
Also there is only one bus 1 hour, very inefficient to go around places if you have a short trip.
Our tour did not start well at all. It took 3 people on 3 different buses to get our ticket printed, and one driver even told us we has to go to the Starline office! Also, all the headphones either worked badly or not at all. We we never use Starline again!
