I was the only one who booked that night and was contacted ahead of time asking if I would like to reschedule. Unfortunately I was leaving the next day so they were generous enough to give me a solo, or I’d like to say private tour. This was such a releaf since the trip I had booked earlier canceled and I was really hoping to get in a tour/do something touristy while I was in the area for work. Danielle showed as happy about giving a tour for one as I’m sure she would be with a large group. Her enthusiasm for the history and folklore of the area was evident in her fun and engaging storytelling. Would highly recommend to anyone interested in the more “hidden” and darker history of the area.

Tour Guide Lynsie was lovely. Unfortunately the tour itself was a disappointing.

We booked this trip at the last minute and were pleasantly surprised by the efficiency of the staff.

Santa Barbara, Solvang and Hearst Castle Day Trip from Los Angeles
, Dec 2019
This tour far exceeded my expectations, especially as I found out at pick up that I was the only person to
book this tour on this winter day. My tour guide, Jacob, was incredibly informative and knowledgeable. As an Australian visiting the area for the first time, he was able to answer all of my questions. The Santa Barbara stop and Mission tour was a highlight, and the Solvang lunch stop was enjoyable. The stand out was the tour of the incredible Hearst Castle, which has been on my bucket list for many years. To top the day, Jacob drove me to a nearby cove to see elephant seals. This was undoubtedly a highlight of my holiday in the US. Thanks to Jacob and to the tour company!
It's a nice trip if you already know LA. Hearst Castle is located 245 miles north of LA, so be prepared to spend quite a lot of time in the mini-bus, but it you want to see it, just do it! They have some original pieces inside, like a Canova's statue and some antique Egyptians statues. The 2 pool are amazing :-).
I will suggest a stop in Santa Barbara, not only see the main street by bus, and I'll go first to Heartst Castle and then Santa Barbara, if you arrive at 8AM everything is closed, there is no fun... Solvang for a European is nothing special, looks very "fake", but can give an idea of ancient Denmark. Very appreciated to be in a small group (11 people)
Explore the incredible scenery and fascinating history along the Southern and Central California coast on this 12-hour day trip from Los Angeles. Enjoy one of the world’s most picturesque oceanfront drives as you head north, stopping first at Santa Barbara to visit its harbor, gorgeous beaches and historic Spanish Mission. Then see Solvang, a Danish-themed town near Santa Barbara. Finish the day with a visit at the sprawling Hearst Castle, constructed by famed publisher William Randolph Hearst. Your California coastal day trip also includes coach transport, live on-board commentary and Hearst Castle admission.
Hollywood Sign, Beverly Hills And Movie Locations Vip Adventure
Well recommended trip
, Nov 2019
We booked this trip before we went to Hollywood and were not sorry as it was a fantastic three hours. Our driver was Frank who was really knowledgeable about the area and took us to some great places and was talking to us all the time about the areas which made it really interesting. Well worth booking
We couldn't have planned for a better tour if we tried. Frankie our tour guide was equal parts Hollywood historian, comedian and storyteller. We opted for a small half day tour instead of a full day tour and this one brought us up close to the Hollywood Sign, through and around the legendary lure of Mulholland Drive and Hollywood Hills and down Sunset Strip. Along the way we heard great tales and passed the multimillion dollar estates of several Hollywood stars. You won't be disappointed with this tour!!
If you only have a few hours to explore Los Angeles, you can still visit the city's most celebrated sights on this half-day tour around LA. Stop at the world-famous Hollywood Sign, see fashion-forward Rodeo Drive, and snap a selfie in front of the landmark Beverly Hills Sign. Along the way, take a stroll in Greystone Mansion and Park—a famous location featured in numerous blockbuster movies.
As a resident of LA County I like learning more about where I live. This tour fit the bill! Chris, our tour guide, walked us all around DTLA, telling us about various buildings, famous residents, historical tidbits, and various and assorted information about lots of things we came across. Made me realize how much I didn't know about my own city! He had a fairly encyclopedic knowledge of things we asked about that weren't even on the tour! We really enjoyed our walk and plan to do another one from this company sometime in the future.
Discover an authentic side of Los Angeles beyond the glitz and glamour of Hollywood on a walking tour of downtown.

See LA’s oldest street, hear tales of famous former residents that weren’t movie stars, and learn about the impressive behind-the-scenes systems of this sprawling cultural hub.
