This tour is a really good way of seeing Los Angeles. We did the two day so we could do the red route one day (Hollywood, Beverley hills and surrounding areas) and blue route (Santa Monica Piet/Venice beach) the next. The guides were friendly some more informative than others. Would definitely recommend

Excellent way to get to know LA. Although we’ve been here several times on business, for special events, etc., we’ve never really explored the full breadth of Los Angeles, without having to worry about traffic, parking, etc. We took the two day option, and Loved being able to spend time at the La Brea tar pits, Farmers Market, walking from Santa Monica to Venice beach, stopping off for lunch, shopping, cocktails, etc, and then hopping the bus back. Tour guides and drivers were all very good, and some were exceptional, wish I had written down all the names. Highly recommend!
