This excursion was the HIGHLIGHT of mine and mum's trip when we visited relatives in downtown LA end May. Bing our tour guide went above and beyond in making our trip memorable. Even my cousin who lives in LA was so impressed with all her knowledge of the area that he too even said for him there were many info he hasn't heard before. This isn't just a tour, Bing explained the different type of areas, its history and who and when the celebrity lived at such place. I love her pragmatic approach and attention to detail making sure we were at each destination on time! It's as if we knew each other. Overall i would give this trip 10 7 stars. It's a shame a few members in our group couldn't adhere to time keeping. They were so ignorant! But that didn't spoil our trip. I will not hesitate to recommend this City tour to friends and family as i know they will be look after from beginning until the end! Thank you so much Bing! You were magical!. Come to England sometime! :) Jo x

A good way to get around Hollywood, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, and surrounding areas. The recorded commentary provides interesting facts about some of the sights along the way. The separate tour of the homes of the stars climbs into the Hollywood Hills for some good views. The app allows you to find out when the next bus is due to arrive at your stop.

Although the tour lasts 5 hours, it is very entertaining. Our driver Jerry commented on the journey with insider knowledge and his own stories. The breaks were sufficient to eat or take pictures. The whole family had fun on the tour!

Everything went perfect. In time, high level. Our Guide Chelsea was super cool. She explained a lot of interesting things and insights and it was fun. Thx a lot. Clearly recommended and look for Chelsea

Great tour. Paul was very knowledgeable about each area of the city.
