This was nice to see more without being on my feet the whole time. They stop and you can get off and get back on when the next bus comes around. Very nice tour and bus and staff. The staff were all friendly and professional. They didn’t run us down and try to force us to buy like the other similar companies.

So worth the money. Our trip was made even better by our guide Mike. What an amazing person. His sense of humour together with his vast knowledge just made it for us. So informative. I highly recommend this company. Easy to book and value for money.

Loved it! Great way to discover highlights around LA. The staff were friendly and helpful The bus drivers were not particularly personable but we really didn’t have to deal with them because it’s an audio tour

Highly recommended to get to know Los Angeles quickly, easily and safely. Except for the Hollywood Sign and Bel-Air, you know the main things about the city in your language.

Was a well run and entertaining tour. Can only recommend. Thanks very much
