I recommend this tour, it’s worth the price, all the stops are major points of interest. Bus was clean, comfortable and air-conditioned. It was a good enough time, about 45 mins, at each stop to get a taste so if you’re interested you can re-visit and spend more time on your own. Our tour guide, John, was very professional and relayed his knowledge to us clearly and continuously. Customer service with the company in general was very good from beginning to end.

My only complaint is that our tour ran 9 hrs when website states time should be ~ 7.5 hrs (we started the tour at 9:30 am and ended at 6:30 pm). Not the driver’s fault, we ran late leaving every stop due to passengers not returning and boarding bus on scheduled time.

A Day in LA Tours was an excellent experience for my boyfriend and I. We were generously greeted by the tour staff, and the itinerary perfectly laid out what to expect throughout the day. The tour included numerous landmark visits, beautiful vistas for photos and selfies, and so much more. On top of that, our tour guide was outstanding—his knowledge of the city, coupled with his deep interest in film history and culture, provided us with an unforgettable LA experience that we will hold onto forever.

I highly recommend you travel with A Day in LA Tours if you want to experience some of LA’s most iconic sites and hear the compelling stories that give life to them. 11/10

Took the LA tour today and it was brilliant. We chose the pickup from hotel option and the driver was friendly and on time. We were dropped off and met others who didn’t go for the pick up option and given a bus number. When your bus arrived you were greeted and explained everything by the driver who will be your tour guide too.
We had Stephen who was amazing (he had only been working for the company for a few months but was a real credit to them) He gave us lots of interesting information and facts along the way. Very friendly and answered all questions.
First stops were Santa Monica pier and then Venice beach. Although the sea fog was disappointing (but you can’t control the weather) we were given enough time to explore, use the facilities etc.
Afterwards we went to Rodeo Drive and Beverly Hills. Stephen gave us lots of facts and info on the way stopping/ slowing down to show places on route.
We then went onto The Original Farmers Market for lunch. Again Stephen was helpful and gave us all recommendations of places to eat. We went to The Gumbo Pot-Their Jambalaya was delicious!
We then went up to Griffith Observatory where the views were amazing looking out to Downtown LA. You can go in if you have proof of vaccination and a mask. (Mask was provided if needed)
Last stop was The Walk of Fame. Loved going to the Chinese Theatre to see all the famous handprints. We were then dropped back off to our hotels. Stephen was extremely kind enough to drop us off further down from our hotel so we could pick up our rental. Thanks Stephen.
All in all I would highly recommend the tour- the bus was comfy, lots of cold bottled water available and no need to drive your way through the traffic. Just sit back and relax.

My favorite thing about this tour is that it’s impossible to narrow it down to just one great memory. Major highlights were the Hollywood Sign and Griffith Observatory, Santa Monica Pier, Venice Beach and Hollywood Blvd/The Walk of Fame. The reason why this tour company gets stellar ratings is they are doing everything right. The tour bus is new, comfortable and holds only holds 23 people. Our bus was on time and picked us up at our hotel. Our guide Steven was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He shared the history, pop culture, famous landmarks, movie trivia, nostalgia plus current sites like the famous Google binocular building. We had ample time to visit each site rather than feeling too rushed. In case visitors planned a longer stay he pointed out some of the best night life spots, restaurants, shopping, comedy bars, etc. Our weather was perfect allowing us to take incredible photos, enjoy the outdoors and relax while lunching at the original Farmers Market. We followed Steven’s dining tips and laughed when we bumped into him carrying the empanadas we were enjoying at our table. I highly recommend this tour. It will jump start your trip and help you hit the high spots that many can easily miss.

Did the LA day tour with Janette on May 21, 2022 out of Anaheim. Janette was an excellent guide and somehow managed to get us into places just before the crowds started. She also queued music to each of the stops, which made the tour a lot of fun. Janette was a safe, experienced driver (I’m from NY and was sitting in front) circumventing all the traffic and giving us enough time to see everything. All the folks kept to the schedule and there were no delays. Janette gave us a very good idea of what LA is about, from the beaches to Beverly Hills. The tour was informative and fun. I recommend this company and the personal touch they bring to their tours.

This tour company was totally awesome. George the tour guide was the most informative guide I have ever had!
They were on time and kept a perfect schedule throughout the day trip.
For the entire day packed full of awesome stops it was also very reasonably priced.
George was very interactive with the guests and played a ton of awesome relevant music to go with our stops. I highly recommend this company.

I really enjoyed this tour. LA is such a huge city and distances between the main sites are sometimes large so it’s brilliant to just sit back and be taken to each one plus have landmarks pointed out and stories shared along the way. I looked up the price of Ubers and it cost approx $35 to go from Santa Monica to a viewing point of the Hollywood sign one way. When you factor in that cost once again on the return leg, plus trips to other sites you’d like to see, the price of this tour is definitely worth it. Thanks for a great day which enabled me to see so much on just a short space of time.

Only taken 1 point off as it would have been nice to have a bit more info about must see’s at certain points. For example, Rodeo drive is really just expensive shops and nothing else, but I happened to know about the Beverly Hills sign so made my way there. No one else on the tour knew. It might have been on the leaflet you’re given, but a verbal reminder would be helpful as you’re looking at sites out of the window not reading. But, I very much enjoyed it.

From the moment I booked the day, I was impressed by the level of responsiveness of the company. They texted me to confirm and when I had a question, they were very quick to text back response. Pickup at my hotel, so very easy and on time arranged. Great day spent with Jeanene who is a firecracker! Went to a bunch of LA sites, and had plenty of time off the bus to sightsee on our own. Having visited a bunch of these sites earlier in the week on my own, I can tell you the cost value of the tour is amazing! The time saved in traffic and parking fees at each of the sites pays for the day. Thoroughly enjoyed all sites and the commentary, and felt very safe (as I was alone without my family), i would definitely schedule another tour with this company. Thank you!

roger did a great job explaining the city and taking us to all the sights in LA, this tour is really one you shouldn't miss, i recommend do this first before anything else then get enough information to visit other places throughout city. lots of information a full day, they have bottled water for you all day, small comfortable buses

i must also say the communication with company was fantastic, they texted me several times gave me information where to go, and picked us up at hotel.

i highly recommend

We had a fantastic time. Our tour guide Alecia was knowledgeable, and I appreciated being picked up and dropped off at my hotel. I would not have been able to see as many sites on my own, so I felt that this tour provided a great value, and I’d recommend it to any first-time visitors in LA.
