*Likely to sell out: Based on Viator’s booking data and information from the provider from the past 30 days, it seems likely this experience will sell out through Viator, a Tripadvisor company.

    Erick was on it from the start, there was some type of miscommunication between the Viator and Bikes and Hikes and he was able to resolve the issue quickly so that we could start our tour on time. Erick led a group of us effortlessly up the hill and shared a lot of knowledge of Colonel Griffith and the history of the Hollywood sign and the park overall. Thanks Erick we had a great time and would recommend to anyone looking for a hike to do it with you.

    The tour guide Tom was super nice, knowledgeable, funny and professional. The bus was really comfortable and air conditioned which was really great. The tour gave a perfect view of Los Angeles and Hollywood showing all the iconic sites and attractions. I will highly recommend.

    Miriam was a great leader, and everything went smoothly. I feel that the price was right for three people. The only negative was hikers arriving very late and being disrespectful of others' time. If everyone else arrives and lines up on time, others can, too.

    We can’t say enough great things about this tour!!! We have actually done 3 tours with company now and every one is better than the last. We thought that we would explore on our own, but the experience with the tour was so exclusive and special that we were so happy we did the tours instead of on our own! Highly recommended and will come back every time we come back into town to do a different experience. We would give it more stars if we could!

    Based on what you were offering for the self guided tour, I decided not to participate. When I looked over the information, I realized that it would be a waste of my time.

    Ben was a great guide who had us entertained and informed! He also took many family pictures for us that we will treasure. I really appreciate that he drove us through the UCLA campus even though that is not typically on the tour….we have a rising HS senior who was interested in seeing it. He was very flexible and wanted to show us what we were interested in. I highly recommend this tour and Ben as a tour guide!

    My husband, Jason and I did the Notorious LA 4 hour Tour with Derek today. It was so much fun and very enjoyable. Derek was super professional, friendly and laid back. He was very knowledgeable about the subjects at hand and took us all over the notorious areas of LA that included true crime spots with historical aspects of the city. It was such a delightful experience we would definitely book him again. If your in LA please check him out. 4 hours went by so fast we wished we had booked the 6 hr tour. If you get the chance you definitely should. Thanks for a great day that will be memorable for us Derek !
