What people are saying about Los Angeles County

It's worth the price involved! Parking included with valet service, excellent meal (buffet) in the "Parisian" district, the attractions follow one another thanks to the priority passage. All that's missing is a studio tour with an audio guide in French because I didn't understand everything. Lots of references to American movies and TV series!

It was nice, we loved the tour! Little group and a great guide! Much to see but at the same time not too much, it’s not overwhelming. We can absolutely recommend it!

Very good tour, with the possibility to get on and off at any time.

It was a lovely well organized tour. It was vip indeed,

Staff is really friendly. Bikes aren’t easy to drive.
