We booked this tour at the last minute and must say we lucked out! It was exactly what we were looking for - a quick intro to the main spots around the city, with a focus on Hollywood. Bing was very knowledgeable and the celebrity home tour with her was clearly the standout of the tour.
The tour picked us up in a large van filled with people and little room left for my family to sit. The van was hot and crowded. The tour guide rushed us through each attraction. We had little time at each attaction to view and take picture. We were told at the Griffith Observatory that we were not allowed to go inside. We were barely able to see the Hollywood sign from the observatory. We had to go back to the Griffith Observatory, walk of fame, Hollywood sign, and Chinese Theater on our own time and money to actually see everything. We drove past 2-3 star homes, not impressed. We spent so much time stuck in traffic hearing the tour guide point out irrelvant coffee shops in Koreatown. Such a waste of a day. I would reccomed that you avoid this tour.
Thank you for taking time out to write this review. We are sorry that your experience with us was not to your expectations.
Our tour is designed as an overview of the city, not as a deep dive of each landmark we stop on the route. For example, the stop at the Griffith Park Observatory isn’t just to provide one of the best views of the Hollywood Sign — it is also to show our guests a breathtaking and sweeping overlook of the city, while enjoying another historical landmark that the majority of our visitors have on their itinerary.
We’re sorry you were disappointed in the traffic. It’s an unfortunate fact that LA has the nation’s worst traffic, despite it being our favorite city (call us biased). That said, as we return to drop people off at their hotels, we’d rather our guides mention our city’s rich and diverse culture by pointing out places of interest (such as popular coffee shops and restaurants) rather than simply being silent in the van.
Finally, we’re sorry and surprised to hear that you only saw 2 or 3 stars homes. This tour highlights the neighborhoods of the Hollywood celebrities and has over 20 homes and filming locations on schedule. We confirmed this route with your driver that day, and are happy to discuss any discrepancy further if you’d like to give us a call.
All the best,
Bing was an excellent tour guide and knew all about the attractions and where everybody lived or had lived and who lived there now. The tour moved very smoothly with no stops too long. We were not a hotel pick up and Bing communicated with us about where to be and when to be there. She knows the town well and we never got stopped or delayed in traffic. One of the best tours on our two week trip in California.
Thanks for sharing your Afternoon City of LA tour experience you had with Bing. It's great you found the stops to be just the right amount of time. Bing has lived and worked in LA for over 30 years and truly knows the town, which most defiantly helps her navigate through our epic traffic. It's fantastic this tour ranks as one of your best in your two week visit to our state!
Amazing Tour. Even though traffic was pretty bad, Paul was super patient and entertaining. The dispatcher was also helpful. Communication. Service. And over all experience is great. We went during the busiest time of the year. Just a few days before 1/1/19. The tour was longer than usual due to traffic but again Paul was great!
Driver/tour guide was prompt and very nice. Tour was informative and interesting. Tour guide was a bit on the corny side but it all fit with the Hollywood tour. Tour guide was the funniest when he was not trying to be. He passed the House of Pies and told us it was good place to get a pie. Overall enjoyed the tour. May want to play some appropriate music relative to the sites being visited.
This tour was even better than we thought it would be. Our tour guide Paul, was definitely the nicest, most knowledgeable and friendliest tour guide I've ever had. He made the whole tour feel like we were hanging out with friends and learning about the city while doing so.
