My favorite part of the Grand City Tour of LA was watching my teenage grandsons listening intently to our tour guide Bing's narration. She made the tour so interesting, the boys even put down their cell phones for a bit. Bing threw in several extras for us and she spent just the right amount of time stopped at the sites. We never felt rushed. My husband and I had been to some of the sites before, but we learned a great deal more from Bing. Highly recommended.

Hi Laluce6, Wow! Yes it is always great to see teenager's engaged with our guides during our tour! We always love to throw in some local extra insights that we have accumulated over the years. We are glad the whole family learned more about the nations second most populated city. Thanks you so much for highly recommending us!!

The tour covers all the important places in LA (except the beaches), the stops were well programmed and the city has many interesting places.

But the best thing of the tour was our guide, Paul, he was incredibly knowledgeable of the city, its places and its people. He was nice, funny and helpful in every way possible. We have learned to love the city because of people like him.

Hi Juan, Thanks for writing this review about Paul's tour. After over 30 years Paul has accumulated a lot of knowledge about our great city! We all love to interject some humor. We love to share our history of this great city. See you next time you pass through the LA area. Happy Travels!

I took this tour with my Mom who came to visit me in LA, and it was a great way to show her the sights. It was especially nice to go on a weekday morning, as things were relatively clear and uncrowded. Our tour guide Bing was incredible - very knowledgable, thorough, and entertaining, and she helped my Mom (who has limited mobility) in and out of the vehicle at each stop. The next time I have visitors, I know which tour service to recommend!

Our tour was amazing. Bing is an excellent tour guide and really knows her stuff when it comes to LA landmarks. We had a really great time and would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting LA, especially if you’re only there for a short time.

I would like to say thank you again to Guideline Tours for providing me with an enlightening tour of the City of Angels. This was by far one of the best city tours I have experienced. The tour guide was very informative and detailed in the story telling of the site and sounds of Los Angeles. This is a trip that I never will forget and I'm glad to have shared it Guideline Tours. If you are in the Los Angeles area, I would highly recommend Guideline Tours. #ILoveLA

A great start to our Californian holiday - our lady tour guide was fantastic; personable, very knowledgeable and always willing to spend a little more time giving the tour that "little bit extra". Timings were pretty much spot on in terms of the sights visited - and it was good to finish at the Farmers Market where there was such a wealth of different foods on offer.

We would certainly recommend this tour as the best way to get that initial feel for LA, Hollywood and Beverley Hills....

We had an excellent half day tour of LA. Our guide, Jim, was outstanding. Very friendly and knowledgeable. We had a family of 5 so it was just us on the tour in the van. We were really amazed at all we were able to see in a fairly short amount of time. Griffith Park, Hollywood Blvd, Beverly Hills, Farmers Market, etc. With 3 kids, I was worried they might get bored riding in a car for so long around town, but it was easy to keep them engaged with the sights. If you're looking for a good tour of LA and Hollywood, I would highly recommend this over the generic buses going around. Felt a lot more personal with just us in the van and didn't have to worry about leaving our belongings onboard while we got out at the stops.

Had the best time touring LA with Guideline Tours. Got the chance to visit the 'must-sees' in LA plus we had an amazing guide in Bing. She is very friendly, pleasant, knows a lot of interesting stories about LA and very patient in answering all questions. Highly recommended especially for solo travellers who would like to explore LA.

My guide Carlos was amazing! He knows Los Angeles so much and showed us the most famous points in the city, telling us about the history and general information about each one. It was a wonderful day knowing the city and getting the best tips about LA. I recomend this tour and Carlos as guide!

Sunday morning tour started at 9 am. Pick up was at our hotel and we almost immediately started the tour. Our guide was friendly, competent, professional. He intimately knew the history and the backstories to all the LA locations we visited. He also shared interesting personal stories related to the tour. The van was enclosed, clean and comfortable with A/C. Water was on board as well. Since we had extra time, we visited other locations not on the tour itinerary. A shout out to our guide, Uncle Paul, who made the tour memorable and worth while. Highly recommend.
