“LA City Tour”

We had a terrific time with Joe as our guide. He's interesting, knows his stuff, we learned so much about the city, and we were very fortunate to have him all to ourselves. Thanks so much Joe!

“Great Los Angeles Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

I flew in from Austin and wanted a tour of Beverly Hills and Los Angeles area. My tour guide was Charlie. He was extremely knowledgeable, entertaining, friendly, and had a great attitude! He was very professional and accommodating to everyone on the tour. He spoke clearly and had a great pace so those who do not have English as their mother tongue could understand. The tour itself was a ton of fun, I had 30 minutes to check out Rodeo Drive and the area next to Grauman's Theatre. I went back the following day to spend some time shopping for souvenirs. Thanks Amazing LA Tours, it was totally worth every penny!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Yes, Charlie is very positive and upbeat and we are glad he was able to accommodate everyone. It is also good to hear that the tour was kept at a pace that was easy to follow considering we have many travelers from outside the US and we want everyone to be able to understand and have the chance to ask questions. Hope the rest of your trip was as much fun as your day with Charlie! See you next time you are in LA!

“Fun, comfortable and informative!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I live in LA but my friend was in town for the first time so we decided to take the 3 ½ hrs tour. What a surprise! So many things and spots I didn't know. The tour was great, comfortable and informative but most of all it's fun! Our guide Joe was very charming, pointing out sites of interest and attractions with humor and interactive trivia games (He even sang for us!) We later learned he was a comedian, no wonder. My friend was fascinated: an afternoon learning Hollywood history with out even noticing. We got to stop at Rodeo Drive, Mullholland Drive and the Hollywood Walk of Fame with enough time for pictures, exploring and bathroom breaks without feeling we're wasting our time. Will take the tour again with the in laws!

Sometimes the most fun you can have as a local is when pretending to be a tourist! We have many guests come on a tour with their out of town family and they tend to love the tour just as much! When living in Los Angeles, you don't always have the time to enjoy the famous spots of the city without dealing with the traffic and parking, but on a tour you get to relax and let us take charge. We are glad Joe was informative yet fun and that he kept you entertained! Thanks again for writing a review and we hope to see you back with the rest of the family!

“Harrison is a god.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

If you have to do a tacky LA tour (and yes, you really do have to) this is the one to take. As part of this tour we got stuck on the freeway for an hour and a half (the full LA experience) but Harrison kept us entertained all the way. How any person can cram so much useless information into such a small scruffy frame is beyond me. I guarantee wherever he is right now he is still talking. All stuff you'd never otherwise know (and probably don't need too) and great fun.
All the usual sites you wouldn't normally get round too.
I hate tours like this but it was a scream. Thanks Harrison.

We are glad to hear you had so much fun with Harrison! Our tour schedule is specifically designed to keep you out of as much LA traffic as possible but sometimes things do happen. I remember this specific day and while your bus was on the freeway an accident happened in front of you resulting in 3 lanes being closed all at once! We would never want you to sit through that type of traffic, but I heard the tour went smoothly after that and Harrison kept you entertained. As you can see, the traffic/LA driving/parking is why many travelers decide to take tours of the city instead of dealing with it on their own. We are glad Harrison turned what could have been a bad experience into an enjoyable trip! Thanks again for choosing Amazing and we will be sure to let Harrison know that he's a tour "god" in your eyes!

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. The Tour #1 is perfect to show you the highlights of the city in quick tour. Joe seems to make all of his tours personal to each set of customers he has. Glad you had a fun time and learned some interesting facts/trivia. See you next time you are in LA!
