Average 3.65 out of 5 stars based on 23 verified reviews from Cool Destinations and TripAdvisor
Although it was a rainy Saturday, we opted for the covered bus tour and quickly realized we made a great decision! Our guides were AMAZING and so knowledgeable. We were able to get out for a walk around downtown as well as stop at the Farmer's Market for lunch. I would absolutely 1000% recommend this tour to others and it probably would have been even better if not for the rain.
This tour was great. Farmers market was interesting, unfortunately we didn't spot any movie stars. The drive through Beverley Hills and Hollywood was good. Seeing all the stars names in the pavement was interesting.
The tour guides were super. Learned so much about LA that I never knew x
Great overall tour of LA. Our guide Stan was excellent!! Very knowledgeable.
great day out guide and driver very welcoming and friendly defiantly worth doing as saw so much of the city which wouldn't have been possible without the tour so many wonderful places to see lunch at farmers market was fantastic well worth doing
Great tour by a great tour guide, very knowledgeable.
The tour was just what we wanted. The guide was great!
BRUCE was our tour guide in a small van and it was a lot better than being in a big bus......there were only four of us plus him....
He was very knowledgable about the history of all the sights and threw in some funny lines along the way......
The only thing my wife and I had a problem with was that we were told that we would be back at the starting point at 6 p.m. and it was about an hour late.....we know the traffic is horrible.....I'd suggest that they tell you the tour ends at a certain time, but don't expect to get to your car until later than expected.....
Overall, it was a fun informative experience and would suggest it to someone who wants to see the entire LA area....
