Great trip, both the bus tour and Universal were amazing. The home tour lasted two hours which was just enough and was a great way to see not only the houses but Hollywood in general. We had five hours at the park and considering it was a Saturday had more than enough time to do the rides before leaving. Great time, great tour, def do early in your trip as it will show you where to hang out in Hollywood.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2011

Enjoyed both tours especially Universal Studios although I booked as one tour it was actually two seperate tours so had to go on the stars homes tour first then when that arrived back at the office had to go in the office again and wait around for another b us to go to universal studios.

Would certainly recommend Universal Studios
