Excellent Tour for limited time in LA
David_S, May 2022
We were very happy with the tour and recommend it to anyone with limited time in LA. Saw a good amount of LA in a 4 hour period and left feeling like we saw all of the attractions you hear about. Great tour guide. Unfortunately we forgot her name, but she was a local who was very friendly, easy to chat with, and provided a ton of information. Excellent experience.
Absolutely priceless tour
William_L, Feb 2022
Our tour guide (Paul) immediately made us feel welcome. He was so knowledgeable and exceeded our expectations. Our trips focus was to see the Super Bowl 2022 but as we remember our trip years from now, Paul's tour of LA will be treasured as a highlight of our trip.
Response from Host, Mar 2022
Hi William, Thank you so much for sharing your tour experience. Paul has been showing folks around the LA area for over 40 years. We also love to travel, and we know that connecting with a local is a great way to feel welcome. For many years we use to do tours in larger vehicles, the tours were great but that personal connection was not as strong. Traveling to a large city for such a huge event like the Supper Bowl can be intimidating. We are so glad that Paul made you feel welcome and his knowledge exceeded your expatiations and the experience was Absolutely priceless! We are so moved that the tour was the highlight of your trip!!
Really Good Tour
ROBERTTA_G, Jun 2021
The tour was very nice, detailed and informative. The tour guide was nice and gave a lot of historical information on LA and California. She hit all the hot spots of LA including Rodeo drive, Sunset Blvd, and the Staples Center. I would definitely recommend this tour to someone that has never been to California before and would like to see the site and know the history.

Hi Robertta, Thanks for rating your tour very nice. It's great you got a lot of historical information and you saw hot spots. Thank you for the recommendation! Happy travels.

If you want to see and experience the BEST tour ever go with Bing! My family absolutely loved every minute of the tour! Don’t miss a great experience!!!!!
A Great Way to See Overview of LA
Geri G, May 2019
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.
Response from Host, Jun 2019
Hi Geri, 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! I

Charla F, Aug 2017
This was a terrific tour company and we highly recommend! Cost was reasonable and it was like a friend took us around to all the best places to see - and that friend knew how to navigate the crazy California traffic like a pro. We really got to see everything we had hoped and more. The friendly staff helped with everything from where to park our RV and get picked up, to all the cool insider info about the area, to helping locate items we forgot in the tour vehicle. Note that this tour is in an air-conditioned passenger van, which makes things very comfortable, but a bit harder to see some of the sights like tall downtown buildings. Lots of stops help with that issue - we were free to get out and get all the pictures we wanted. Would definitely take this tour again!

Jim W, Jul 2017
Loved the tour. Pick up was prompt... right at our hotel. The tour guide was quite entertaining and knowledgable about the city. The vehicle was a Mercedes van so it wasn't too big or too small. We were a family of four. There was also another family of 4 and a family of 3. We got to see all the major attractions, Hollywood sign, Griffith Park, Hollywood blvd, Dolby theatre, Grauman's chinese theatre etc. Plus we toured famous star's neighbourhoods. Our guide was knowledgeable and very friendly and wasn't rushed about getting back. Great way to get an overview of L.A.

Mary S, Aug 2017
Carlos was our tour guide - positively THE BEST! He demonstrated amazing skill at navigating LA traffic and turns while describing - NON-STOP, every building and site of interest, complete with history and anecdotes. And it was clear from his accent that English was his second language. Well done, Carlos!

Charles S, Dec 2017
If you want a great tour then look up Paul for your next tour guide. From the start of our tour, Paul made us feel at ease, he was courteous, polite and most of all very knowledgeable about the Downtown Los Angeles and Hollywood area. If you want to have a meaningful and memorable experience I recommend Paul. Thanks for the great tour!

Charnelle M, Mar 2017
From booking to tour this company exceeded my expectations. Every customer service agent and the tour guide were fantastic. I was able to book this tour for a friend and myself the day before with no hassle. The tour guide Maria Quey was awesome and perfect in every way!. Very knowledgeable of the area, and safely got us from place to place. We were able to see homes of various stars, the Hollywood sign, Walk of Fame, and other significant places. She really made the tour a special and unique experience that we will never forget. I feel like we were able to see so much of the city and learn about its history in such a short amount of time. Our guide was very friendly and had such a warm spirit. Anyone who gets her will be assured an amazing time! I would recommend this company and this tour to anyone. There aren't enough stars you could put up here to describe how wonderful our experience was!!

Tour Extraordinaire at a great price!
Stephen_A, Aug 2022
Paul was an excellent tour guide, informative, funny and punctual with stops and pick ups. He also personalized the tour to make it interactive.
Response from Host, Oct 2022

With our small groups we do like to make the tour interactive and personalize the overall experience. . With everything so expensive we do try to keep our tour cost in an affordable price range. Thanks again for the "Tour Extraordinaire" rating !
Fun and fantastic intro to LA!!
Treewillia, Jul 2022
Paul was a terrific tour guide. His tour van was very clean and comfortable for my family of four. We shared the tour with another family of four. Paul was great with all age groups, including my two teenagers. We saw so much in those four hours, and Paul certainly did seem to know all the short cuts, best parking spots, etc. to pack in as much as possible. His knowledge of LA, Hollywood, and Beverly Hills, as well as the world in general was amazing!! Thanks so much for a fun and informative afternoon!!
Awesome tour

Hi Chester, Thanks for taking time out to share your tour experience with us. After nearly 35 years of showing folks around this iconic city we love to share our acuminated knowledge. It's great you had a good time!
Super exciting!
Carolyn_P, Aug 2021
My most memorable part of the tour was the Observatory where I was able to view the Hollywood sign. Overall the entire tour was great. Dave was a great tour guide, very informative, and knowledgeable. I learned a lot.
Response from Host, Oct 2021
Hi Carolyn, It is great that you learned a lot on the tour. After 34 years of showing people around this very large and historic city we love it when people not only have fun with the great scenic and memorable views from up in the hills at the world renowned Griffith park observatory (elevation 1135 feet), and home of the Hollywood celebrities, but to go home having really learned about the unique culture and history of the nations second largest city!!
