Loved our tour of LA. A lot was closed due to covid but this tour allowed us to see everything that was open. Super hot day but they provided water and snacks!!

Our tour guide Colin was great! They offered hotel pick up which worked out perfectly. Weather wasn’t the greatest, but still had the opportunity to see lots. Some stops I would have liked more time. All in all a great tour! I would highly recommend.

This trip was absolutely amazing, even with all of the rain. The driver, Raul was fun, knowledgeable, and very helpful. Definitely want to do this again, the next time we are in L.A.

Colin was a fantastic guide with a great wealth of knowledge about LA and surrounding areas. The bus was incredibly clean and comfortable. A good value for all that you see for the day.

This tour was perfect for what we wanted- see LA area highlights without the hassles of driving. Our guide was entertaining yet informative. Delightful day!

A lot of walking, but interesting info during the rides between destinations. The disappointment with riding a bus is that it is difficult to get pictures directly ahead of us or on the other side of the bus.Plus, we had occasional problems with reflections in the window on our side of the bus. An open top bus has the advantage of no window reflections. But the most wanted pictures for us were at the actual destinations where we walked to see the sights.Overall, though, we really liked the tour and the driver did a great job giving info and answering questions.
