I have to say that our family went on this tour because of the rave reviews the guide received from TripAdvisor. While true that she was very friendly and kind and knowledgeble about the area and the biography of the Hollywood stars (albeit stars of a bygone era), the van is enclosed thus really limiting your view to the side you are seated on. We took this tour because it was a hot day and I thought the air-conditioning was a necessity instead of being out in the sun in an open air vehicle. But now I wish we had done the open air as it was really difficult to see things on the opposite side of the van from our seats. Also, I think her air-conditioning needs recharging as it was only barely comfortable inside. Most of the views of the star's homes was a disappointment as the shrubbery is so high that we were usually viewing the rooflines. Kind of disappointing in that regard. We would have appreciated one or two stops to stretch our legs like when we passed Beverly Hills Park or even the shops on Rhodeo drive. That would have broken the trip up a bit and would have been fun instead of seeing so many rooftops of stars homes. Just a suggestion to the very nice guide. Also don't understand why "tips are appreciated" when the owner is running the vehicle.
