It was a lovely tour and it was absolutely lovely being part of the journey which only has one motto of having a great day in Los Angeles while exploring the actual famous and significant landmarks. I was already in Los Angeles for a week, and my wife and I could have just gone out all by ourselves to explore the city without even paying the tour charges. The reason for me to take this bus tour is that we wanted to visit the good places around the city, as we found out the Los Angeles is a gigantic city by area. However, though, the started out pretty well from Los Angeles in the morning and we made the first stop at an Observation deck which helped us witness the panoramic views of the region. I was a little shocked by the tour services that they delivered the excellent transportation, places, and the guiding services. I’m nothing but super thankful for this amazing bus tour! I hope everyone a great time! Good luck.

I live in Los Angeles myself, but I didn’t know I am going to enjoy strolling through my city so much! We went to so many places, and everything was so exciting. The guide helped us everywhere, and accompanied us throughout the process. The tour is not only very exciting, but also very economical. At such a cheap price, you can look everything this beautiful city has to offer and I didn’t know it is so colorful, and endures a diversified culture theme. (yes, I fulfilled my dream of touring Hollywood walk of fame too!) Anybody looking to learn more about LA should definitely take this tour!
on the recent holiday season, my mon and I had to come to Los Angeles for our Christmas Shopping and some stuff. While we were out of the town in Los Angeles, I wondered why don’t we spend a day out in Los Angeles and see what it offers us. Then my mom found out about this bus tour, we just booked the tour online and pay them to reserve our seats for tomorrow because we wanted to see the true nature of Los Angeles. It was the early morning when all the guests were on board with us in a massive bus, we all first went to the OUE Space Los Angeles, the most awe-inspiring place I have ever been to, the views, the glass windows, were absolutely amazing. I loved how the tour was led by the professional management and they provided us what we wanted and there was no disappointment or something we could ask for everything was well-management. We loved the time Los Angeles, thanks a lot, guys!
I took this tour with my college friend, and we are pretty much satisfied with the tour. The tour was well managed, but I think there was no real plan for the tour. We visited so many places, and spent so little time at each of the place, for which I think we should have taken out more time for each place, and gone through it thoroughly. So it was just too many things in a few hours. Other than that, the transport was good (better than I expected), and it was well executed. If you are looking to visit this city, I would suggest you to take this tour. There’s a lot to see in the city that you know of!
Lucky us that we visited the Staples Stadium on a right day since there was a hockey championship that was going inside the staples stadium and we could hear the loud noises of the people screaming to support their specific team or a player. Anyhow, the tour manager seemed a little upset for some reason, not sure what was wrong with that guy, but he seemed a little off, and only told us that we are going to a certain place and we are going to be spending this much of time and all that, despite being friendly and providing us assistance while touring the locations, he just stepped aside. I was expecting the tour could be a little more luxurious and enjoyable in Los Angeles, otherwise, I don’t understand what are we paying for. The last thing I want to add is that there are only a few landmarks which we explore like the Space Center, Space Observatory, and Microsoft Plaza, there should be more places like those as there is plenty of time in a day for a visitor to explore.
Hi. we came from Hong Kong and landed exactly a day earlier at the LAX airport. We called the tour services at night, and we mentioned that which hotel they would suggest us to check in at, rather helping us out, they decided to just hang up on us. I was just mentioning my first impression with the management. However, my boyfriend found a decent, not expensive place where could spend the night. The thing which I would like to include is that they should take full responsibility for the guests joining their tours from abroad, after all, we were there for them, and they hang up on this. The next morning, the tour bus started early in the morning and took all the visitors on their buses to the places which were mentioned on the tour schedule. There was just no space for anything extra or optional, rather we were being dragged from one place to another with the tour them! I think Los Angeles is way better than what they offered us.
