Hi Marie M, We are sadden by most recent experience on the Grand City Tour. We never want our guest to feel that they need to feel as though the tour is a routine. We strive to be as patient and thorough with our guest and of the tours. On this tour that you had embarked on are two washroom breaks one is located at the Griffith Park Observatory (Next to the drop off and pick up point), The other washroom break is in Beverly Hills. (Several cafes, and public facilities). We also have a washroom which is located inside our office located at the Hollywood Walk of Fame. However, We will use your suggestion and will clearly inform all guests on where the washrooms are located at each stop. Thank you for your time in sharing this with us. Regards, Alex C
