We booked our tour online in the evening. Soon after hitting "enter" I received an actual, personal phone call to confirm our pick up location. The tour was comprehensive, entertaining, and felt personal. We saw so much of LA and heard a lot of personal experience stories that made us feel more like insiders than typical tourists. Paul was our... More

Our guide, Carlos, was very informative and entertaining and gave us a comprehensive tour around Hollywood, Beverley Hills and downtown Los Angeles, showing us all the highlights of the area. For a great half day tour of the area, ask for Carlos.

It was my family's first trip to Los Angeles. We could only spare half a day due to our schedule so we decided to book this tour. We used their website and it was very simple and easy. They picked us up at the hotel -- very convenient. The best part of this tour was the driver/guide. She was very... More

Bing aka Maria Que was the best tour guide I've ever had. We had an amazing private tour and comedy show. She had me laughing so hard. She truly made the LA traffic worth the trip. Thanks Bing!!!

My boyfriend and I booked the Afternoon Sightseeing Tour on the morning itself - 1.5 hours before in fact - and were amazed at how punctual Bing had come by to pick us up at our hotel at Universal City. She proceeded to give us a short, personalised tour en route to Downtown LA where a bigger bus would await... More

We only had one day to 'see the sights' of LA before a cruise. We hadn't been to LA before and wanted to see some of the main tourist attractions. We contemplated taking one of the Red bus tours but there were too many routes and we wanted to stop off at different places that were on different routes. We... More

Bing was great she showed us all around Hollywood and Beverly Hills sharing with us her great local knowledge of all the sights as well as giving us plenty of time to explore on our own.

The tour guide tried to be funny but it just came across as annoying. He took us to Beverly Hills and showed us houses that people no longer owned or had died. He would start a sentence and never finish it. Overall was very underwhelmed with the tour we received after reading reviews on trip advisor

Mark is an excellent guide. We saw everything that was promised, and had time at three spots to explore his recommendations. A good morning.

We booked this tour through our travel agent. When Dave pulled up in an awesome Mercedes van we were ready to roll. Turns out the other people had to cancel due to jet lag so lucky us got a private tour!!!! Dave was so knowledgeable and enriched us with lots of history and stories as we drove. We were able...
