I had a great time. Our tour guide Jeff was a pretty cool guy that had a great personality. He kept us entertained the entire time with facts about different areas of the city and bad jokes, while waiting at traffic lights. He was able to connect with us by where we from, names are so impersonal. LOL!! I wondered why this attraction had only a few reviews and Jeff informed us that it is a fairly new tour that began a couple of months ago. It is definitely the "appetizer" of tours for LA, as he stated. We were able to see so much in the time allotted for this tour. I wish I had done it within a day or two of my visit to LA. There are places on the tour that I would like to spend more time at. I highly recommend this tour and hope that you have Jeff as your guide.

I toured with 7 other family members and we had a great time!! Our guide was particularly considerate of those in my party who had trouble walking and we appreciated his kindness and humor! What a wonderful day...

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.

Our tour guide knew lots of trivia about the area and it’s history. Really enjoyed the tour.

Great tour guide. Very friendly and knowledgeable.
