What people are saying about Los Angeles

Impressive! And a must-see! - This steel colossus is maintained and made accessible by volunteers, a great achievement. In any case, it is worth taking part in one of the local tours, as the guides tell many interesting anecdotes and bring the ship to life. The openness, friendliness and politeness of everyone on board was also wonderful.

I thank you Alyssa for her explanations and kindness . Be amare free wifi at the observatory is not very powerful. Book in advance your uber to go back to l.a.

Just a kind reminder to the tourists, taking a screenshot of the bar code will make the process easier.
