Traveler Tips

The top is open which is great, but know that it can get very cold up in the hills so I'd recommend bringing a warm sweater and maybe even a knit hat to keep ears warm too.
There is plentiful parking available in structures about a block away.
It gets super chilly up in the hills in the morning with the air blowing through the open bus.

Alissar_S, Mar 2022
We came in from Canada to view Los Angeles for the first time and it was such a cool experience ! Our driver tommy was so funny and so friendly with all of us we got to see everything that we had wanted and all the celeb homes were cool to see ! I would deff recommend !!
Great experience!

We had a very good time! Our tour guide was knowledgeable and funny. Their customer service was also exceptional. We were running 8 minutes late because of an accident and they called to check where we were, took the group on an extra loop, & came back for us. There are bathrooms at the shop where you meet & a purchase discount. Would definitely book a tour again. The only thing to note is that at night it’s cold in the fall and it’s hard to see houses in the dark.
Great tour

The tour guide made it very exciting and entertaining. He was very knowledgeable. The openness of the transportation made it easy to see the sites.
The best choice for the Hollywood experience
Ronit_S, Aug 2022
We were visiting Hollywood for only a few hours (as part of a bigger west coast journey), and this tour was undoubtedly the best activity to do while in Hollywood! In a couple of hours we got to see all the must see places of Hollywood, including the Hollywood sign, a special view on the area (got off the vehicle), comedians famous/historic stand up Venus, owned bars, special theatres, Beverly Hills neighbourhood, Rodeo Dr where the celebrities shop, special places where they eat (including who and where), and of course - their homes! We saw so many houses of known famous people, got so much related information and “celebrity gossip” during this journey. But we are sure that we enjoyed every moment especially thanks to our funny, witty, bright and informative guide (and driver) - Tommy! We didn’t stop laughing the whole time! And He was so great, so nice and very attentive to our requests! My daughter (15 yrs old) wanted to see Justin Bieber’s and Taylor Swift’s homes, so Taylor’s was planned by Tommy anyway, apparently (although the organisers said it’s not included), and for Justin Tommy especially showed us a rental house he had the previous summer, although wasn’t in the journey plan… Thanks Tommy, if you see this! Anyway, if you have only a few hours in Hollywood - this is definitely a good choice. (And don’t ask the organisers questions about contents of the tour, they don’t really know what’s actually included , it seems that it mainly depends on the driver/instructor knowledge). BTW, it was two hours length or even a little more. Definitely worth the money.
Definitely Worth It!

We got to see many sights and enjoyed the interesting background about Hollywood. We would have definitely missed out on this without doing this tour.

Erin_A, Jul 2022
My family loved this tour! Great way to see a lot of the beautiful parts of the city in a short amount of time. Our excellent guide did a nice job pointing out notable places with stories as well. My son loved that he pointed out luxury cars.
Teressa_B, Jul 2022
It was a great experience. Our tour guide Tommy was funny and knowledgeable. We saw all the sights we wanted to see in CA.
Fun and entertaining way to see Hollywood with an expert when you’re on a tight schedule
Michele_R, Jul 2022
We had a great time on the tour from start to finish! We hit horrible LA traffic on the way and our guide, Ryan, circled back to make sure we didn’t miss the tour. He allowed us to go see Ringo Starr when we by chance, saw him dedicating a statue in Hollywood. He even went slightly off course to see a Harry Styles store at my daughter’s request in Hollywood, even though it was empty when we got there. Ryan was super funny and made sure everyone had a wonderful once in a lifetime experience. :)
Great experience

Great way to see Hollywood!
Jody_L, Jun 2022
I would recommend this tour! Tommy was a great tour guide. He was entertaining and very knowledgeable. The tour was a great way to see areas of Hollywood you wouldn’t see if you were trying to do it on your own. We did get put in an open-top bus. Beware if you do, the vinyl seats were very hot and b/c the trip is about 2 hours you can get sun-burned. I appreciated the fact Tommy did have sunscreen he let us use. It was just a very hot day! There was a coveted bus that left right after us from the same company. If I did it again, I would request/book one of those. You can bring drinks on board. You do stop and get out at the Beverly Hills sign for pictures. There is a public restroom there. We used metered parking on the side street right near the Hollywood Blvd. pick-up address (outside a souvenir shop). We also walked down to the Chinese Theater to get pictures of the handprints there and the stars on the sidewalks along the way.

Ryan was great! Great way to see areas you would never seen. Stunning views I would recommend to all
Fun with fantastic views.
Dana_P, Jun 2022
Beautiful views! Up close to many celebrity homes. Opportunity to take lots of photos along the ride. Didn’t get close to the Hollywood sign, but did see it in the distance a few times. Mulholland Drive was my favorite thing to see as I’ve wanted to go there for years. Very entertaining driver. He made the tour so fun! I’m terrible at remembering names, but he was the Asian guy. I know it’s a touristy thing to do, but it’s a great way to see a lot without the stress of driving yourself, and a nice way to cool down and escape the heat of Hollywood.
First time in LA
