There are better tours but they cost more and/or take more time.
An excellent tour of the major tourist attractions if you are short on time.
Sitting in back was very chilly and windy on freeway Moved up front, much better.

Kelly was an amazing guide. She was funny, knowledgeable, and a good driver. We saw so much of the area that I never would have been able to see in a day on my own. The farmers market was amazing!!
Crystal_L, Nov 2022
We had a great time our tour guide was awsome she was funny and very informational. Only thing I would change is have little more time at the farmers market and the walk if fame.
Loved it!

Great time seeing LA in 5 hours
Amanda_W, Nov 2022
Great tour for first time in LA on a limited schedule! Our guide was great, very funny and knowledgeable. Just a note, the vehicle is open, so bring a sweater with you, but if you forget, they provide blankets. I would recommend this tour

My hubby and I celebrated our 31 anniversary in the LA area. We had a great time. This tour was awesome and our tour guide, Kay, gave us a tour to remember. She is very knowledgeable about the area. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in knowing about the LA area, where celebrities live and hang out! Thanks Kay!

Excellent trip
Anna_B, Aug 2022
Excellent trip - Key was so knowledgable and a great guide. Loved it all Highlights seeing the walk of fame
Karen_P, Aug 2022
The pictures on your website are very misleading. The van we toured in was a sketchy looking vehicle with a cloth top and nothing on the side stating we were touring the area. The tour guide, although he tried to be funny, offended most people we passed by and pretty sure the information provided were half truths if not completely false. I was unable to sit next to my daughter because I'm guessing they overbooked. I would not recommend this tour to anyone. Sorry
Stranded in LA!
Maher_C, Aug 2022
We missed our connecting flight to Sydney and had a day to spare. LA wasn’t part of our original trip (only east coast), so we decided to make the best out of it and booked this tour, which suited us in terms of timing and duration. Our guide Bee was amazing and really funny. Being driven around colourful LA and getting to see the city and major tourist spots without being rushed was the best part.
Canadien in Hollywood

Kelly our driver was excellent. I very nice person. Everything was very interesting . During the visit we were comfortable but 3 persons on the same seat was to much . Two persons would be better because the one Who is seat in the middle do not see anything
Very well organized tour
Larson_D, Aug 2022
Booked this tour for my sister-in-law and her husband who were in LA for the first time. They both liked the tour a lot. The tour covered most of the spots they wanted to see. They had a great experience with the tour organizers and tour guide as well. Very good value for money. Would surely recommend others.
