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.

This was a really nice comprehensive loop of most of the main sight seeing points in the Hollwood area. Interesting facts pointed out on the free audio headphone tour at numerous points. Friendly, personable, and a great value for the money. We enjoyed it so much that we purchased another tour from them of homes of the rich and famous which was equally good if not better.

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.
