Friends and I took the Starline Hop-On, Hop-Off buses from Downtown, through Hollywood and Beverley Hills to Santa Monica Beach. Worked out surprisingly well with friend using the app - aiming to get to the beach. Good recorded commentary and friendly drivers (especially Lynelle). I bought a 48 hour ticket but didn't use it the second day - bus didn't... More

A great way to see a part of the great city of Los Angeles. Informative commentary which gave great pointers but was slightly lacking the personal touch of a compare. We were staying close to universal so about six miles to the Chinese theatre, by the time we used the courtesy bus to universal then the blue line to the... More

Thank you David. Yes, each route averages anywhere from 1.5 to 2 hours so being mindful to plan if doing more than 2 routes is definitely a good thing to do. We do state all of our routes, their approximate times and live GPS tracking (starlinegps.com) for all stops and buses on our website, brochure and rack cards so we... More

We took a City by Nite tour which was great . Our driver Sean had so much knowledge and information that really kept us wanting more . Though we started a little late he made up for with the who what where when and why . This is a must do with Starline Tours of Hollywood !

This was so fun. We saw a lot of amazing movie locations, famous./infamous spots and of course celebrity homes. The truth is that the guide makes all the difference and our guide, Michael was AMAZING! Very knowledgeable and engaging. I'd do it again if he was gonna be my guide!

Hi, your post is very vague. What exactly was it that you didn't like? The waiting part? Because if you notice in the brochure and online, the blue route is just a shuttle route, and the yellow route is on the west side of town by the beach cities so did you not use the red to do the transfer...

Not on the list of highly favorite sites for teenagers. Tip should have been included in price as there was nothing more than a high end real estate show on a very jerky ride through rich neighborhoods. Disappointed it was so long!

We are currently travelling around California on vacation. One of our stops was L.A. Initially, we wanted to do a full-day sightseeing tour and get to see the celebrities' homes.

Thank you Peter for the information. Do you remember the driver's name and/or bus number? Any details would help, such as what time perhaps you were picked up by this driver and from what location? This is completely unacceptable and not a reflection of our company as a whole. I will also personally follow up with our Operations Manager to... More

We did the red and purple tours which allowed us to see everything in hollywood and downtown on 2 two hour tours. We made no stops and instead listened to the recorded commentary. Good value for money but no good if you want to sit downstairs out of the sun as all the windows were blacked out with advertising.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
