This was nice to see more without being on my feet the whole time. They stop and you can get off and get back on when the next bus comes around. Very nice tour and bus and staff. The staff were all friendly and professional. They didn’t run us down and try to force us to buy like the other similar companies.

Thank you for the informative city tour, which was brought forward because of the Oscars and the barriers. Our guide Ping made the best of it and put a lot of effort into it - making the tour a highlight

Great for anyone wanting to see as much as possible in the shortest amount of time. If you have no idea what to do in LA start with this tour. You'll have a few ideas afterwards.

Bing was a great guide! She gave us so much information and was so friendly! The 4 hours flew by!

Enjoyed the trip and the extra time our driver gave us! Two thumbs up.
