Amazing super complete tour!!

You get to see all of LA’s landmarks in just 7hrs! It’s amazing. Just the perfect amount of time to take pictures and explore the area. The guide, Mark, has been living in the city for over 20 years and it’s an expert when it comes to the film industry, LAs anecdotes and facts! The bus is super comfy and they have fresh water on board. This is the best tour you can do!!

Tour was nice

The tour basically covers most if not all of the things you might need to see in and around LA without the hassle of planning, driving, parking, etc. My only complain is that the bus should have had better airconditioning. It was hot inside the bus especially since they packed about 20 people inside.

Top notch tour!

I was hesitant to book this tour because it is a full day (7 hours) but the day went by quickly and i feel i got a very good sense of the “must see” of LA. From the minute I walked into the office I knew i was in good hands for the day. Highly recommended!
