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.

Roger, the driver, meant a lot with his easy-going information, interspersed with music. I have been skeptical of this variant but was wrong. It was great fun!

It was an open top bus tour of the larger residential areas on Mullholland Drive. Many impressions of both the houses and Hollywood and the surrounding area.

Very entertaining and informative about where the many of the stars and famous musicians live and Hamhung out.

The tour guide made the experience fun and enjoyable. She engaged everyone on the bus to participate.
