“Guideline Tours is wonderful.”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

The best way to explore LA on a short timeframe is with Guideline Tours. The staff are professional, informative and highly organized. The extra cost ensures no gimmics or false information. Thank you for a fantastic experience! Can't wait for a return visit with you.

“We would be lost without Guideline”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

We travelled to LA to mainly visit Disneyland but the Concierge recommended that we take a tour of the city as well. At first we wanted to take like a car rental and all but since it was our first time in such a big city, and we heard a lot about pickpockets and gangs in LA so we decided to take a guided tour instead. Our hotel at the Figeruoa recommended Guideline tours. With our awesome guide Tim, we were able to see Hollywood, Melrose, Beverly Hills and Farmer's Market. He was a local so he recommended a lot of food places for us to go to after our city tour. Booking a tour at Guideline tours was really worth all the trouble of driving around lost in a huge city

Thank you for going with Guideline Tours.
I am glad you enjoyed your tour with Tim.
We have been in business since 1988, your tour guide Tim is a native Californian and has been with our company for over 10 years. Like all of our tour guides, his knowledge of Los Angeles , Hollywood, and Beverly Hills is extensive.
We do apprentice your business.

“Great way to see a huge city”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

When we arrived in L.A., we knew right away that it would be a tough place to figure out in just a couple of days. Upon the recommendation of our concierge, we took the Guideline City Tour. Our pick up was right on time. Tim, our guide, was fun, interesting and knew the answers to all of our questions. We saw the Hollywood Sign, Hollywood Blvd (walk of fame), the homes of the stars in Beverly Hills and a lot more. One nice thing about the tour was the amount of time that we spent out of the mini bus, walking around several different neighborhoods.
We really enjoyed the tour and would have taken more, if we had the time.

Thanks for choosing Guideline tours.
I looks like you had limited time while here in Los Angeles.
Our tour #1 is a great choice as it combines the the tour of the Stars Homes of Beverly hills and Bel-Air, with the city of Los Angeles, and Hollywood, all in one package.
We truly appreciate your business and hope to see you next time you come through.

“Guideline Tours is the best!! from Remy H”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

My bff from Australia visited me. We have not seen each other for almost 40 years. I decided to take her to a city tour and we made our reservation with Guideline Tours. This is the best thing that we have done. We enjoyed our Los Angeles and Movie Star home tour. The tour bus is very comfortable, our tour guide, Philip, is very knowledgeable and entertaining. I highly recommend Guideline Tours, the best way for sightseeing tours!

“Best way to tour beautiful Los Angeles”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

We attended a class reunion in LA one weekend and decided to take a city tour. Guideline Tours offers airconditioned buses with comfortable seats driven by a very professional, friendly and courteous guide Philip. We toured the historic and famous parts of the city and along the way, Philip would identify special places and explain the cultures that contributed to the beautiful city's rich history. My group being a class reunion made me feel like I was again in a classroom attending a history class but with the added benefit of actually seeing and feeling history unfold. Aside from the historic places, we got to see places where movie stars hang out, their homes, Hollywood and also places where ordinary people go about their business. Guideline Tours offers a relaxing way to see the city. The tour went on like clockwork from start to finish. We will definitely do this again and I will certainly recommend Guideline Tours to friends and relatives.
