Very expensive and frankly awful. The commentary was pre recorded and not particularly interesting. Route was ok but we didn't really see any celeb houses. Was very expensive at $48 each. Would not recommend. Get one of the smaller tour trucks (absolutely loads situated along Hollywood Boulevard) as these have live narration from the driver and better routes.

To anyone reading this DO NOT use la sightseeing. We bought a 2 day pass for the hop on hop off bus tour. The first day we used it we had a number of problems, the driver drove into the back of someone, the commentary is pre recorded & is so dull it's painful and it's out of sync so... More

We booked a tour with Viator whilst back in the UK. The trip started with our hotel pick up at 8.30am for a 6 hour tour of LA. We started the tour at 9.40 which when reading the small print your hotel pick up is part of your 6 hr tour so not a good start the driver took us... More

We paid for 5 adults and our MONEY and our TIME went to the trash can! The narration was very poor and not loud enough. The Time Table for Departures on the itinerary is very tight but you don't see this until you book the tour. We are very disappointed that we were only able to do ONE STOP instead... More

Poor experience at best. 45 minutes late. Wrong tour. 20 Charge for pick up from the hotel that on their list, even though the site says no charge. Rude clerk. The bus with broken microphone. The driver with the attitude 'I don't care'. The guide spoke so quietly we could not understand anything. Very short stops, not enough time to... More

My husband and I did the LA and Universal studios tour. We were limited for time and wanted to see as much as we could and this was perfect. We saw a lot of the sights we wanted to see and our driver had a great knowledge of the sights and history, and had a great sense of humour. The... More

First of all, the tour guide/driver, he is a nice, fun, friendly guy. However the front desk, she does not understand what is meaning of customer service.. Before we go, I checked our e-mail, we already booked #1(hop on-off) tour however, when we arrived counter that day, she told us that one is cancelled and said we already sent mail... More

Kind driver and guide, many stops (Santa Monica Pier, Rodeo Drive, Universal Studios, Mulholland Drive, Walk of Fame). Bel Air and Beverly Hills are quite disappointing, not very things to see, few stars' houses It's a good option for those who don't have many time in LA

Our tour guide worked his tail off and was really nice. Showed us a lot of the main attractions in half a day and made sure we were all getting our pictures taken. So kudos to him! The tour itself is nice but LA is spread out and had to pick up some people on our way back which extended... More
