A good thing to do if tight on time and without a car in LA

Overall a positive experience and an easy way to see some of the main sights. Not much into such tours otherwise but once for a change it was OK. I took 2 full tours and a bit of a connecting one. Beware that when booking a tour, on the confirmation it will say that your start of the tour is at Chinese theater. This was a negative surprise for me as I was starting at Venice beach which is at least 2h away by public transport and this way lots of time would be lost. I decided to try and take a bus already in Venice beach and it worked out perfectly fine. Driver took my printed voucher and gave me a receipt I could use on all the following buses. I was really glad there was no complication about the starting point but this is something that GetYourGuide could clarify and make sure that it's easy for travelers to use. I believe you could start the trip at any stop and not necessarily from the Chinese theater. Also bring a hat and plenty of water, it gets really hot on the top of the bus!

Perfect for a variety of activity levels

This was a great way to see the ocean front and learn some history about Santa Monica and Venice. I recently had knee surgery so exploring had been difficult and this was the perfect solution! Because of the electric bike, myself and a friend could enjoy this activity without me pedaling, and her getting a work out. Barbara was a lovely host who truly seems to enjoy what she's doing- also kudos for the lunch recommendation- Library was perfect! A great day!

Great way to see Downtown LA, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica.

The tour was great! Really got to see what we wanted in LA and the surrounds. Some drivers were nicer and more helpful than others. The administration staff over the phone were terrible though. They need to be trained on the cities these tours operate in.
