“Excellent Guide but not the best bus”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

Plus points:- location was great, picked up and dropped back at hotel , Sabrina our Guide was delightful. Tour covered all major landmarks you'd want to see here in L A.
Bad points :- not enough time at some locations, we got the old red bus unlike some of the newer looking buses we saw leave.
Overall we had a great time. Sabrina went out of her way to make the day great. We would recommend the tour to everyone just make sure you ask for Sabrina and ask for a newer bus.
We did the A1 tour which covered the beaches, the city and also the homes of the stars.

“OK- good way to to a quick cover of greater LA”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

Tour guide had a strong accent that made it hard to understand. Realistically, though, not much to see in LA.

“LA Tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

We took the short tour, #1, which was just enough to get a flavor of LA. The tour hit the highlights including Rodeo Drive, Chinese Theater, and some beautiful views and celebrity homes.

“Avoid this tour if you have children”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

Did the A1 tour on the 24/10/2012. The bus was not open topped, air conditioning not good and quality of the driving dreadful. But what shocked me the most was the language on the bus and aggressiveness of the driver. There were young children on our tour and they played a recording from Pulp Fiction with a number of "F" swearing words in the piece, the driver called another driver an ar*ehole and had an agressive conversation with some Spanish passenger who wasn't going to tip him. I wish we had the courage not to tip either. Please avoid

“Don't bother with this tired grubby company”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

We chose this on the recommendation of our hotel..... bIG mistake. They were over one hour late picking us up; no air con in the newish Mercedes bus; marshalled us at their Hollywood Blvd office which was smelly, small, dirty walls & floor, no restroom. Driver detoured at the start to "pick up a 14 year old niece", who didn't want to join us. Result, a 2hour tour ended up 1 hr 45 mins.
Our male driver made lots of excuses as to why we could not see David Beckhams house, & we found out other tour did.
Final comment, when we got off the bus at our hotel, another young female passenger showed us a note. the driver, (obviously in his 50's), had given her a piece of paper with his private mobile number. This was reported to the company.
