I was stopping over in Los Angeles for a day and thought I'd do a tour as I had visited the city a number of times but knew little about the place. I'd never even done a lot of the touristy spots. The driver JT was knowledgeable and funny and had a lot to say even when we were stuck... More

We took this tour (2) in light of it's 'celebrity Homes' feature. Turns out it is not what it seems as the ad is quite misleading, we were disappointed to come to the end of our tour with only being pointed out 2-3 houses that were so far away you couldn't see them. After asking the tour guide he mentioned... More

If you are staying in Santa Monica, this company is great. The staff in the office are really friendly and there is good seating while you are waiting for the bus to arrive. You feel as though you are being treated as a person. The bus is air-conditioned and very comfortable. We did the afternoon Beverly Hills/Hollywood City tour and... More

I was offended by our driver and tour operator, John, giving a racism lecture during my tour yesterday Monday April 6th 2015. He told us all we were 'judging a book by its cover' by not guessing where he was born, and that we were using the fact that as he put it 'he was multi-racial' to not be able... More

We had a great tour of LA provided by our driver Charlie. He had a ton of knowledge to share with us, and at the same time related the info. Back to where the tourists on his bus were from. Definitely got our money's worth on this tour.

We had a small tour so the tour guide was happy to show us what we wanted and also deviate a little from the schedule. He was really knowledgeable about the area and told us heaps of interesting facts. We did the Premiere Tour which I can recommend.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
