Had a great tour experience! Sammy our driver was very knowledgeable and told us great information on the different locations we’d drive through in LA. Was great tour and highly recommend you book this. 1 of my highlights was getting to stop off the bus to take a photo with the Beverly Hills Sign.

A great way of seeing a huge city which without a car would be impossible. The commentary is informative and the loops overlap so you can swap between routes easily. Good value for money.
