This tour of Los Angeles was excellent. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and had a true, personal knowledge of the area. She added some extra sites and was very friendly. The bottles of water on a hot day were much appreciated.

Hi vonetterichter,

We really appreciate your kind words regarding your tour on a hot August day.
The weather in Los Angeles can be a bit warm in summer, maybe next time come through LA in winter and still enjoy our mild winter weather.

Staying in Los Angeles almost two weeks allowed some sightseeing. We prebooked a grand tour with extension on Wednesday 27th June 2018. A bit late for the pickup time we were a bit nervous but the driver, a sweet and skilled lady originally from the Filippines, took us safely through the raging traffic to meet up with our tour guide Paul. He then made a very personal tour with numerous stops. It was a small bus, not open, that made the possible views a bit scarce. At lunchtime we got to Farmers market and had lunch, afterwards the lady got back and drove us to Santa Monica Pier. Both guides were skilled, friendly and very interesting. The lady, who's name I've forgotten, also drove us to Universal on Friday. Calm and skilled, she managed the Friday rush with a smile and after pickup that night she made us feel like family. All in all, small buses, not so easy to see all the views but numerous stops compensate, that and the personal care and treatment we got. Safe from door to door. We were a family of four and shared with two other families, one from US and one from UK, on the Grand Tour day.

Hi sollan,

Thank you for review of experience with our company.
We remember meeting your wonderful family from Sweden. I am so happy you and the family found your guides to be sweet, skilled, safe and knowledgeable.
We find our Mercedes Benz tour buses keep people comfortable with climate controlled air conditioning or heat, and safe from the intense southern California UV Sun Rays and smoggy air.
I am sorry your driver was a bit late, but there were some no show passengers at the hotel down the road form your pickup.

Please look us up next time you return from the beautiful country of Sweden!

Great and very fun tour. Bing was amazing as a tour guide, took the time to learn peoples names and gave a really good insight to the area. We saw a lot in a few hours. Recommend it highly.
