“Acceptable tour”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Our family of four took the five hour city tour. Antonio was our guide. The tour was OK. We saw the main city sites: Hollywood sign, Beverly Hill shopping, Hollywood blvd. etc. Not many celebrity homes. Just felt like the tour information was limited. Maybe our guide was just having an off day. I am sure it varies greatly based on the tour guide.

I orginally tried to book the Rasta tour but it was booked on the day we went. Reserved the tour with Amazing LA tours on recommendation from Rastas.

We appreciate you writing a review as customer comments are the best way to know what is working and what we can improve upon. We thank Rasta Bus for referring you to us, but remember we are two different companies with two different sets of tours to offer. It looks like you booked the Beverly Hills/Hollywood City Tour which shows a few celebrity homes along the tour route, but if this is something you wanted to focus on, we do offer a semi-private Celebrity Homes Exclusive Tour which will show you around 60-70 celebrity homes of past and present. Although your tour took you to the main tourists attractions in the city, you might have been happier on one of our full day tours that combine Downtown LA/Venice Beach/Marina Del Rey or our Celebrity Homes Exclusive with the Beverly Hills/Hollywood City Tour. Maybe one of these combination tours would have better matched up with what you were originally planning on taking with the other company. It is hard to say without knowing which additional sights you had planned on seeing. Next time you are in the city we hope to better assist you in making a tour choice that will take you to all the areas you intend to see.

“L. A. tour with J.T.”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

We took the three hour tour with J. T. on the weekend before Christmas. We found him entertaining and a good leader for articulating facts and fun for the group. We will recommend our friends to ask for J. T. on their next visit to L.A.
Thank you and Happy New Year.

It looks like you took our shorter city Tour #1 which is 3 1/2 hours. It seems to be just enough for those who want a quick look at the most famous attractions in LA. JT is a wealth of information and we are glad you had a fun day with him. Thanks again for choosing Amazing and Happy New Year to you as well.

“Great experience”
Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

We have loved the fact that the company came to pick us up at the hotel for free and dropped us back to the hotel when we came back.
Our tour guide Phil was really interesting and funny and shared his huge knowledge of L.A with a great sense of humor.

We have stopped three times at different locations and been through the "must see" places of the area including some stars houses.

I would really recommend this tour to anyone who want to discover the wide city of Los Angeles.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience! Yes, as you said, Los Angeles is a very "wide" and spread out city, so we do our best to pick out the places we feel most travelers will want to see. Our goal is for you to have a day out in the city without stress and that is why we provide pick-up and drop-off at area hotels so that you can leave the entire day of driving to us. We are glad you enjoyed your experience and we hope to see you next time you are in LA!
