LA traffic makes this bus experience not something that makes sense for a tourist. You are much better off spending money on a ride share and getting to the spots you want quicker. Due to the size of the bus it cannot take short cuts in LA backstreets forcing you into relentless traffic. You'll barely see LA in a single day if you want to get on all the loops.

I bought a ticket on double decker Starline Tours at Hollywood to have a leisurely sightseeing of famous LA sights. It’s was a beautiful day and I enjoyed listening to the commentaries of each bus stop. I took the Red route then switch over to Yellow route towards Santa Monica. Then switch back to Red to get back to Hollywood.

Drivers were not friendly. I took a map/timetable. Turns out it was the wrong timetable and apparently there was a corrected printed one but the driver never bothered to hand it to me. Therefore, we ended up waiting an hour for a bus because we had the wrong time. Having said all that, it’s an easy way to see a lot of the city.

We were really disappointed with our experience with Starline. We booked tickets a week in advance of going and opted for a two day hop on hop off pass which covered three routes, Hollywood, Downtown and Santa Monica. The website did not suggest their tours were operating from a different timetable so having researched the timetable we decided this would work with our schedule. I printed out my email confirmation of the order and despite the driver converting this to QR tickets he insisted on taking my email copy. I asked for what purpose and he said I didn’t need it. I advised that it had my email address and name on it and that I don’t want these shared with just anyone. He said it was mandatory that he took it so I relented only to find the folded email on the bus the second day! I wish that was the only problem. We opted for the downtown route first and were provided with a printed timetable stating pick up and drop off times for February 2022. We had no reason to doubt the validity of this until we were waiting at a bus stop and the bus was 25mins late. We called the helpline who advised us they were running a reduced timetable! Would have be great if we had of been informed! We lost 2.5hrs as a result! The bus itself was a little cramped in some of the seats, mainly towards the back. The mic system was temperamental and I had to plug my headphones into the unit behind me on two occasions. The audio itself was awful, it was so out of sync that we missed major tourist stops because we had already passed them despite the automated guide saying ‘coming up on your left’ etc. Overall we spent a lot of money on a less than mediocre tour. Our friends travelled with Big Bus and had a very different experience, if I went again I’d book with Big Bus.

Dreadful. It is not a hop on hop off, if you do you’ll miss the majority of the tour or worst miss the last bus back. You spend hours driving around listening to a prerecorded commentary on earphones about celebrity addictions, death and misdemeanours. The recording isn’t in sync so you miss the highlights. One good thing was we saw what a dump Hollywood is and glad we didn’t waste money in staying there. If there was a smaller more intimate tour I’m sure it would be better. I do have to shout out to the drivers, they made sure the connecting bus to Santa Monica waited for us, I’m sure they didn’t have to.

Waited 1 hour for the bus to come in Santa Monica, altough we were told it would be 30 minutes. When the bus arrives, the driver was not very pleasant and we begin our tour, but nobody can hear the commentary thru the headphones. Turns out the driver forgot to turn on the audio for the first 15 minutes of the tour. By that time we were almost at our transfer point from the yellow bus to the red bus. Another wait, 30 minutes for the red bus to arrive to take us to West Hollywood, Sunset....he arrives, this time he is friendly and we are off only to turn around after 5 minutes and head to the meeting spot because someone was waiting to get on the bus. After this pickup fingers crossed we can begin this tour. The headphones and plug ins are spotty. I moved seats twice to hear the commentary. The bus itself is filthy, maybe try giving the windshield a wash occassionaly. The downstairs seating is useless as you cannot see out of the windows. The tour commentary often didn't line up with where the sites being described were. Finally we took a chance to get off the bus at the Chinese theatre and wait for another bus to complete the red line. Very odd that the bus just doesn't do a complete rotation. Anyway saw the last few stops jumped off at the whiskey a go go and opted to take an uber. I have done these tours in other cities, where the buses are frequent and there is no standing around. What a waste of money. Save yourself the pain. This is not a hop on hop off because it doesn't operate enough buses so once you hop off your hooped.

My wife and I took the tour on October 2 and we’re passed by a tour bus and had to wait 45 minutes in the hot sun for the next bus. We’re both senior citizens and when I contacted the company I’ve basically been ignored. No customer service whatsoever!!

Went on the tour for one day thinking I could do it all but then in the middle of the day my cousin that lives here asked me to meet up with him and that ended up cutting my day short. I called Starline after asking if I can extend my ticket for a day because someone had told me it would be possible for 18$. The lady on the phone told me she didn’t have the access to extend my ticket, that only the bus driver would. I wasn’t able to get on the bus so I came today to the pick up spot to ask to extend my ticket. They extended it for free! Which was so nice of them!

one of the best hop on hop off i have been on, so many great stops all over LA! multi route in santa monica & hollywood and i heard there was a thrid route in downtown la area.
best way too get around the whole LA area, hitting all the major tourist attractions.
good price, great staff, nice double decker busses.

i would say i would like them too add more buses, so you dont have to wait 45-hour between busses.

This was my first time visiting LA. Since I did not know where to go, I decided to take a “hop-on-off” bus. I have taken this type of busses in other cities and loved the experience.

Starline tours was unlike these other experiences. It was TERRIBLE. And that is an understatement. The largest issue was that the busses are ill maintained. During our time, we got off at a 2 locations and had to wait for about an hour after the scheduled arrivals. One of the drivers told us that one of the busses had broken down.

At our first bus, the narration was not working for the whole bus. So it became just like a overpriced public transportation that is always late.

The bus interior was disgusting and the seats were coming off.

Lastly, if you are coming to LA, skip these tours. Rent a car and just drive around.
