What people are saying about Los Angeles

We had an amazing time going above and below decks, seeing the big guns (from the outside), a number of the 2000+ lb 16.5 inch rounds, the bridge, the 1980s modernizations (including a cruise missle), plus getting to see the kitchen, the captain's in-port quarters, and much more. Good descriptions along the way, and the below decks mess & museum were unexpected surprises. It made for a great half-day.

So easy to use and loads of choices. Just make sure you download the app for your qr codes to enter your venues. Used ours for san diego zoo, sea world and knotts berry farm. 100% recommend. Great value for money considering knotts berry farm wanted $99 per person on the gate.

Super profitable! Possibility to see lots of things to do in Los Angeles and without queuing or even booking for the most part! Brilliant I recommend!

Everything went well with redeeming the selected attractions.

It was really simple and fun from arriving to departure
