Traveler Tips

Stops are often a block or two away from the place they are promoting, so make sure you can comfortably walk tat distance before getting off, or you could be stuck there for uptown 90mins in some cases.
Sometimes takes longer than 30min wait to catch the next bus but overall a great service.
If you leave on last bus you can only do the loop if you get off you'll need to find own way back to Hollywood Beverly Hills etc

Not good value
Sue_K, Jan 2023
Not good value for money. £40 for 24 hours and the buses run from 10am to around 4.30pm. This tour in Europe/UK would have been priced below £20. Our experience was the very first bus of the day was 10 minutes late and the commentary didn’t work. The Red route didn’t impress us, yellow route to Santa Monica was ok. Didn’t have time for downtown LA.

John_O, Jan 2023
This bus trip was a complete disaster, none of these buses had windows & they were completely flooded with the rain driving through & soaking everyone. The first bus driver we encountered was extremely rude, had erratic driving & did not communicate. We waited for the second bus in Hollywood, the second driver was good in comparison, but the weather conditions ruined the trip as the buses should have roll down plastic covers in the situation to stop people getting soaked.
jenn_P, Dec 2022
We throughly enjoyed the adventure - including the rain(we are vancourites) , it added a nice misty affect to the sightseeing. A suggestion though - roll up roof might be nice just in case or rain ponchos. Other than that - we enjoyed our visit and see you next time.

Bus broke down twice - a lot of waiting time - only good thing is it brought us to different parts of LA that would have been hard to get too
Great way to see the city
Maxine_P, Nov 2022
We loved these tours! It was a great way to get around and see the sites all the whilst enjoying the views and sunshine.

Ali_J, Nov 2022
Friendly driver, interesting talk, and we're had the whole lower inside of the bus to ourselves most -everyone else was upstairs in the open top. Relaxing trip.
It was a great tour...
Tracey_M, Nov 2022
It was a great tour despite the rain … only thing I would say is that we did purple route to red route and it was quite cold on the bus as it was open sided.

On the road to nowhere
Gareth_J, Oct 2022
3 different routes to choose from so better than the Big Bus option. However they don't run all the time which is annoying, however the most frustrating thing is the traffic, not the bus company's fault but you go nowhere fast. If you want to go out to Santa Monica use the subway

Constance_B, Oct 2022
Most memorable was how difficult it was to find bus stop at Farmers Market. Directions was a bank address when actually its on Fairfax without signage of hop on stop. Company did not disclose lay over in Hollywood.
Do not waste your money. The service is so bad it will sour your experience.
Carmen_H, Oct 2022
There was nothing memorable about this experience. The person who helped us with the tickets before boarding was rude and unhelpful. The driver was equally rude.

Emily is amazing!
Karen_P, Sep 2022
I had the best time on this hike and I have to say that this was largely due to Emily. I could not have asked for a better guide. I learnt so much from Emily about the history of LA etc and she was genuinely hilarious (everything you want in a guide). I struggled a little bit towards the end of the hike and Emily was so supportive and got me to the end. Thank you so much Emily!
Bus tour
Karin_M, Sep 2022
The driver was wonderful. The seats on the top of the bus was too small for me to fit into to. Also when on the top of the bus, you need to look out for tree branches. All in all the tour was interesting.
Everything was great!...
Erika_M, Sep 2022
Everything was great! Very honest and helpful people too! I left my phone on a bus for 2 hours! Everyone was so helpful to bring it back to me! 1000% recommend!
Truly a memorable day.
Shirley_L, Sep 2022
Santa Monica Pier was wonderful. The tour to see all the sights in one fell swoop. Did the trick. Our driver was friendly and informative.

Very disappointing
Wayne_M, Aug 2022
Seemed to be a very rushed tour, tiny amount of time between sights. Some sights discussed on the audio weren’t even there.

Not enough buses to offer the promised service
Percival_G, Aug 2022
We booked a two day trip which allows you to experience three different tours. Unfortunately, the 3pm purple tour to the city (downtown) was cancelled the first day so we decided to get there earlier on the 2nd day but then the 12.15pm tour was also cancelled. So we had to hang around for an hour to wait on the 1.15pm. This tour simply does not have enough busses to offer the service that they promise and make you pay for. In the end we did not do much hopping off because we realised that we were just waiting and waiting around for the bus to arrive. I will not use this operator again.
Quite long
lynn_t, Aug 2022
The Hollywood branch of the tour was good. The Santa Monica branch was long. The beach area is beautiful, otherwise, very long tour. If you plan to do the Santa Monica route, get off the red line at the appropriate stop, otherwise - if leaving from Dolby Theater - you end up riding the red line twice. My 15y/o and 17y/o were largely unimpressed, and kept asking when it was going to be done. We did the Hollywood/red line, lasting a generous 2hrs. We did not realize that the Dolby Theater stop only runs the red line, so by the time we took the red > to get to the yellow > to get back on the red (as we were parked at Dolby Theater) it was well over 4hrs. (In addition to the generous 2hrs we had already done.). My misunderstanding that neither the red nor the yellow bring you through a route passing homes of the stars - the part my teenagers were most looking forward to. Overall, I would try a different option if we return to LA.

The view was the best, very enjoyable. Good clean bus, driver was very accommodating. Will definitely book again

Very hot and sad tour
Lyntena_L, Jul 2022
Very sad and hot tour. The bus was over 30 minutes late. No air on the bus. No real interesting stories.

PLEASE DON'T, the negative reviews are true! I gave them a shot anyway...
Rising_S, Jul 2022
I'm easygoing and was giving these reviews the benefit of the doubt... and I am going to tell you right now DO NOT USE THIS SERVICE! The buses do not leave on time nor did they at the time arrive on time. Several people on our small bus started to complain about the time frame. Once the bus started to move, we were relieved, on an afternoon trip and a 24-hour pass you will NOT get your money's worth. 4 of us were stranded at a stop where the driver didn't see us and we were told to stand, it could have been the wrong stop who knows???? but either way, we followed the previous bus drivers instructions about where to stand and go. Who knows, but after trying to chat with someone and call someone nothing was resolved. If you don't get off the bus maybe, but this was a terrible waste of a day in LA and we can't get our time back and we are fighting to get our money back now. And let me tell you about their 24-hour pass, its also worthless because the bus stop running at 3:30pm on one route, 4:45pm on another 6pm on the last... (Approximately)... 24 hours means that you can use it the next day from the time you checked in?! why? so I can get stranded again? Thankfully, you can pay an uber driver to pick you up and pay them extra to drive where ever you want to go. This truly was a horrible experience, they need an app... and app that lets the driver know when there is a family standing and waiting in the hot sun.
