This tour was recommended to us by Kim, one of the concierges at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel where we stayed in LA. Initially we baulked at the cost, but it was totally worth the expense.
Our guide and driver Paul picked us up promptly at the arranged time and took us to the clean, roomy and comfortable van that we were to tour around LA in. He took a few minutes to explain the rate for the tour ($175/hr) and how it was up to us where we went and how long the tour lasted. We told him basically what we wanted to see (Walk Of Fame, Chinese Theatre, Hollywood sign, movie stars mansions and just a general tour of the ritzier parts of LA) and off we went.
Paul was an entertaining and informative guide, and we had a great time with him. We stopped at a national park near the Hollywood sign and got photos as close as it is possible to get to the sign. We also stopped at the Walk of Fame and Graumanns Chinese Theatre for a while and then we set off to Beverly Hills and Bel Air to look at a selection of celebrity homes.
We ended up spending 3.5 hours with Paul and that was plenty of time to see everything, all from the comfort of our private van. Included in the tour is a photo package with heaps of photos the guide takes on his camera along the way, as well as some standard photos of other points of interest in LA, which is available for download after your tour.
We are really glad we did this tour and would recommend it to anyone. Although it is more expensive than the average group tours of LA, we found the comfort and flexibility of the tour made the extra expense worthwhile.
