What people are saying about El Capitan Theatre

Love this tour. The information provided for the places we were passing was very interesting. Drivers were friendly and professional. I enjoyed a lot listening to the stories during the tour in Hollywood , unfortunately when I changed to the bus that goes to Santa Monica pier we didn’t have one. Nothing to hear for a long ride. Over all I give the tour a 5 starts.

Great experience, great family event. We rode the bus to Santa Monica Pier, got off the bus there and enjoyed the entertainment, got back on the bus and finished the tour

Great way to the highlights of LA in a short time. Well maintained buses. Very informative tour. Great for solo travelers. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Fun and informational and if you get stumped the hints and ability to move forward make it a good experience.

loved seeing the parts of LA that I wouldn't have seen on my own
