It was a chilly and foggy day, bad for us tourists. Thankfully I was by myself, so I sat up front with the driver and HEAT! It's an open window bus, so I imagine it was pretty chilly, especially when went got onto the highway to the Grove. Levi is an excellent guide, lots of fun facts, he stopped or slowed down for any picture opportunities. Love the Santa Monica pier, the Griffith Observatory (the exhibits in the building were awesome, if I had known I would have headed there right after taking pictures of the Hollywood sign). I thought gawking at the celebrity houses was a bit much. Overall a great experience and I would highly recommend!
Our day started off by not getting there on time. I called ahead to let them know that we weren't going to be there in time and they were kind enough to move us to the next tour. Our driver (George) made the tour so enjoyable. He took the time to meet everyone and introduce them to each other. He remembered everyone's name and mentioned everyone by name throughout the tour. We had so much fun. We got to see many star's homes and traveled along Mulholland Dr, Rodeo Dr, Route 66, Beverly Hills and much more. It was well worth the cost of the tour. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to see the area up close and personal.
There were four of us in my group and the vote was unanimous. We all had a great time on the tour. We all agree that we got a well rounded view of the Hollywood/Beverly Hills area, the other group of friends who shared our bus were very friendly, and our guide was great. The only thing I would have wished for was just being able to slow down for a second or two to get good photos of special sites. That aside though, kudos to Gary King, not only for his expert city driving skills but also for his people skills. He was a super friendly, funny, engaging tour guide whom we all enjoyed riding along with!
It was a great experience and Levi was awesome. Would have preferred to spend more time at Santa Monica Pier and eliminate Griffith Observatory, but understand offering diversity.
This was a great way to see this large city in a snapshot! We were able to learn a lot and go back to the places where we wanted to spend more time.
