      Amazing experience with MR HOLLYWOOD
      I was visiting LA with my gf & thought it’d be nice to take a bus tour & see some of the city. It is an understatement to say that I was completely blown away by the experience. MR HOLLYWOOD was absolutely phenomenal & extremely knowledgeable about the city! I learned a lot & had a great time thanks to him. Highly recommend.

      Amazing experience with MR. HOLLYWOOD
      MR. HOLLYWOOD WAS AMAZING!! I love his high energy, and I just moved to Los Angeles and he gave me such an amazing tour! I just moved here from Colorado and didn’t know too much about the area that I was living, but he gave me such an insight on it! If you ever take one of these celebrity chores, book with MR. HOLLYWOOD!! He’s amazing and super high energy and positive to be around!!

      Fun and best way to get a sense of LA area
      Great value for the money! Would have never covered so many sights in 1 day or even known where to look. Tommy was a great guide and driver. Made the whole experience fun and hilarious! Don't be put off if operation appears a bit "casual". These guys have a great operation and well worth the money and time. Excellent.

      YOUR new Wife.
      So this was first hot wondered why we were the only bus with no overhead covering. So bring sunscreen, the tour itself was fun , and Tommy was so great at showing us places to eat, spots for pictures, celebrity homes, and all over Hollywood. Despite the sweltering heat his jokes kept me alive. He is so funny ( also why I am proposing to him. A Girl with Blue locs says she's ready for commitment here.) The tour was fun and pretty exciting , I had a grand old time. Wish I put my number on my tip, uhhh but it was fun.

    The guide was very nice. The bus was on the older side and although it had no windows it does have a roof (I thought it would look like the bus in the pic). Our tour had A very loud group which made it difficult to hear. I wish guide would tell loud groups to tone it down. All in all I enjoyed the tour. Hit major spots although it can be difficult to snap pics. Also... pic of Hollywood sign is from VERY FAR.

    The tour took us around to see many different areas but was not exactly as advertised. The "Hollywood Sign" was not a stop, rather a distant view from the bus with a 15 second pause along the side of the road. The tour was too heavy on celebrity homes and the tour guide (Lawrence) just talked too much. Overall it was good for what we paid and allowed us to get around to a few different areas... but wished it was a bit more diverse and that iconic landmarks had a bit more significance.

    Having done a similar tour before I thought i knew what to expect. Unfortunately this was a very poor experience in comparison. Our driver, Ryan, after having taken us on a very brief tour of Beverley Hills then stopped in Rodeo Drive and told us all to get off the bus and wander around for 35 minutes before rejoining him. There had been no prior warning that the tour would not be a full 90 minutes with the guide.

    The whole experience was rushed and of poor quality. The guide was mostly inaudible and we kept having to ask him to repeat himself. The information was random anyway - more about the colour of the power lines in each road than anything more interesting.

    We didn't rejoin the tour after the 'break' as Ryan said the remaining 20minutes would be a drive down Sunset then back to Hollywood Boulevard. It felt like we had just taken a very expensive uber ride to a smarter part of town and not had the advertised experience at all.

    Rather than just leave a bad review I tried to liaise with the company directly but they were not interested, Customer satisfaction is not high on their priorities - filling their ancient buses more so.

    Don't use this company. You will get a better experience elsewhere.

    Sorry to hear about your bad experience with us but Rodeo Drive or Beverly Hills stops are no more than 20 minutes. We will make sure that our tour guides comply.

    This is the most disappointing experience I have had in my entire trip to LA. I had kept it for the last so I could end my trip with a great experience of LA, but it turned out to be the worst experience. These guys are not professional at all. The original tour manager kept us waiting for some time saying that the bus would arrive soon, but after sometime he vanished from the scene. A completely different tour guy came and asked to go in his bus which was already waiting there for more than 15 mins with people in it, but had exactly the same number of seats to fit the number of people in our group. Looked like it was a pre-arrangement between the original tour guy and the second guy... managed two different tours with only one while charged for two. This is totally unprofessional. The second guy himself told us that the original tour guys were very unprofessional and we should never book the tour with them. Overall, we were not satisfied with the tour itself at all. If you really want to have good experience, DO NOT book your tour with these guys.

    Cons: The tour company is in an armpit area of L.A., be aware while you are waiting on the street. They tell you to arrive 20 minutes early, which we did, but that is just so that they can herd you into their souvenir shop to get you to spend money. There is a restroom available if you need it prior to departure. We had to keep checking out front to see if the guide was ready to leave, and they finally boarded us on the (dirty) bus 20 minutes after we were supposed to have left. We sat on the bus for another 20 minutes, waiting for another group of six to show up. They never did, so 40+ minutes late, we finally left. The guide was just ok - he kept stopping in the middle of stories, said he would come back to that story, and never did. Listening to him was really more like reading a copy of TMZ magazine or something - not necessarily relevant information to what we were seeing, and most of the time what he was saying felt made up. Twenty minutes into the tour, he circled back to the beginning where we boarded the bus to pick up the party of six that finally showed up. It was obvious that the only thing this guy was after was tips at the end of the tour, and the more people that boarded, the better his odds were. We left and repeated the whole fist part of our tour, hearing the same nonsense and seeing the same sights. This was really unacceptable. He was not entertaining or funny or anything, and a lot of times, seemed to be struggling to remember things to say.

    The bus is uncovered and similar to the picture shown, so keep that in mind when he jumps on the freeway! It was pretty windy and I did not always feel safe in the crazy traffic. If you are afraid of heights, the view on Mullholland is pretty steep, as are the hills going up and coming down. My husband had to look away at one point when we stopped to look out over a cliff at the houses, etc. I was fine with it, but just a heads up.

    Pros: If you've never been to L.A. or Hollywood, this tour does leave you with a sense of "Been there, done that." I used to live in North Hollywood, so I knew what to expect (no glamor). Rodeo Drive and Beverly Hills was nice to drive through, and yes, you do see the Hollywood Sign several times. Overall, I think the tour was worth the money but not the time. We ended up being unable to visit with CA family (we were in town from Ohio) because the delay in picking up the very tardy party caused us to hit miserable rush hour. I suppose I would recommend the tour, but you'll certainly not want to do it a second time.

    These are some of the best people to deal with. Amazing service and very helpful. I, my wife and our 2 year old son were in LA for a couple days, and I accidentally reserved for the wrong date. They don’t operate on Wednesdays and that’s when we were visiting. I thought the whole time our booking was for Wednesday but it was actually for Friday. Lisa, whom I spoke with on the phone, was prompt at answering all my questions and helping us finding a driver on their only day off in the week. They went out of their ways to arrange a personal VIP tour just for the three of us, which meant a lot to us. Tommy, the guide was funny and very informative. He knows this stuff guys. He knows the whereabouts and celebrities and their houses. Overall, a beautiful experience and staff is just on point.

    If you’re practicing social distancing, this is NOT the tour for you. This company is operating at full capacity and seats you where they wish, even if you’re with a group. Refused to give a refund as they say the bus is open. Poor customer service.

    We hear your concern and we’re sorry that our Hollywood location host did not let you know that there is another option for all those with health concerns to upgrade to a private tour for an extra fee. All buses are sanitized before each departure and we always keep family and groups together.

    This tour is a great introduction to Hollywood and along the way gives you views of celebrity homes. The tour guide (his last name was Cool) has been given tours for 12 years and was extremely knowledgeable about star’s homes and real estate pricing. We had a slightly drizzly day and overcast and quite cool, and it would have been better if the weather had been nicer but of course the tour company can’t control the weather. It was a very enjoyable trip.

    Tracy was super accommodating and knowledgeable. She is quite invested in making sure your experience is everything you want and goes above and beyond to assure your satisfaction. She knows Los Angeles intimately and is generous in sharing her insights and secret places not typically traveled by tourists! You will not be disappointed booking a tour with Classic Experiences!

    It was fun the driver was funny and kept it "Hollywood " I forgot his name maybe jason. Fun guy. The only not so good thing I would have to say is he rushed, I would realy have lied if the tour was a bit more slowly driven so that we could have enjoyed the scenery more especially along the
    Residential part and the shopping area's. Maybe that's how the tour's are supposed to be, but man slower by maybe 10 mph would have been great. Other than that the tour guide was fun and informative. I liked his snoop dog interpretation (lol).
