What You Can Expect

City Tour of Los Angeles from Long Beach and San Pedro

Beverly Hills

Enjoy morning pickup at your hotel in Long Beach, then board a comfortable Mercedes Benz tour coach to ride the 25 miles (40 km) north to Los Angeles. During the journey, view the twin ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, one of the largest ports in the country.

In downtown LA, stop first at the Los Angeles Coliseum, where many of the city's biggest concerts and sporting events take place. Then head for the Frank Gehry-designed Walt Disney Concert Hall, the distinctive building where the Los Angeles Philharmonic plays.

Stop at the shortest railway in the world, Angels Flight, a funicular that goes up Bunker Hill. On Olvera Street, get a feel for the oldest area of downtown LA, where many blockbuster films have been shot.

Head for the Hollywood Sign, perched high above the city on Mt Lee. Hang out there for 20 minutes to snap photos and enjoy the views, then head down the hill into the neighborhood itself. Spend forty minutes exploring the Dolby Theater, the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the TCL Chinese Theater. 

Eat lunch (own expense) at Mel's Diner on the Sunset Strip, then peruse the luxury shops on Rodeo Drive. Contrast that with the relaxed vibe in Santa Monica and Venice Beach.

After 8 hours of exploring the City of Angels, enjoy a lift back to your hotel in Long Beach.

Our guide was local and very well informed. Pick-up was punctual and although we had done the LA trip twice before with other companies, this was easily the best. The visit to Hollywood boulevard was much more leisurely than previously and the lunch stop-off at Mel's diner was memorable and included a celebrity spot! I would thoroughly recommend this tour and would travel to Long Beach again just to access it! Highly recommemded and delivered all that was promised. Thank You!

This tour was like being shown around home by a new best friend. John drove us where he thought we would enjoy it best and unashamedly talked us to death while he drove. He new where to take the best photos and warned us we might be disappointed. It was a gorgeous day, but with a risk of mist, so maybe not great for seeing the Hollywood sign. And there might be crowds because it was Fathers' Day. So he delivered more than he promised and this was the highlight of a two trip to California for a couple of Brits who felt as though we had our own Stars on the sidewalk in Hollywood. All we wanted was to have fun. Right on cue, someone asked ' Who's that statue ? 'Santa Monica ' came the answer. Great Tour.

My kids and I had a fantastic time with John who was our tour guide. We saw all the extractions we wanted to see even an extra quick stop on the way. Our tour guide John was so professional and knowledgeable. He really made it fun for us! We took turns sitting in the front seat to be fair to others. You get a better view up there. Thanks for an awesome time!

We had a marvelous LA tour with our driver, Alberto. He was very informative and a delight as our tour guide. Loved the songs he played for us while on the tour. This Evansville, IN, crew had a wonderful day!

We had a wonderful time on this tour! Our driver was SO personable and knowledgeable. While we drove from Long Beach into LA, he told us many delightful stories about the area. At lunch time, he took us to the original Mel's Diner where we had a yummy lunch including their famous malts and shakes. It was a full day tour but we were thrilled to see so many highlights of LA, Hollywood, Venice Beach, Santa Monica, and everywhere in between. Being in a small group cost more but it was definitely worth it.

Kudos for being so efficient and convenient with pick up and delivery from our hotel in San Pedro, and providing a comfortable van for sightseeing. We will recommend your services to others and you'll be the first go-to on future trips. Thank you again, Alberto, for making our few hours in Los Angeles so enjoyable and unforgettable. You made such an intimidating city come to life! Fondly, your Mel's Diner Lunchmates - Janet, Gail and Bunny Fri 3/30/17

This tour was everything we had hoped. Weather was nice, we had never been in LA and got to see the basics and the beach. We all enjoyed it. Had a great lunch at mels.

Our small group tour of Los Angeles from Long Beach was fantastic. Our driver and guide, Alberto, was fantastic. He was not only a great historian of all things Los Angeles and Hollywood that was enhanced with a fantastic sense of humour but he was also very considerate about our timings and ensuring we relaxed and enjoyed every aspect of the tour. His driving was impeccable and we felt safe throughout our journey. A very worthwhile tour of LA that we would recommend on any visit to this huge city.
