Kara_M, Aug 2023
Fun looking at the Hollywood hills neighborhood. The app could be a little more user friendly. But over all a good excursion.
Response from Host, Aug 2023
Kara, I'm happy you had a great experience exploring the Hollywood Hills neighborhood with my Hollywood Celebrity Homes Audio Tour. Your feedback on the app's user-friendliness is valuable, as I'm always striving to improve. If you plan on visiting other destinations, you might want to check out my Action+ Tour Bundle, which includes more than 100 self-guided tours to exciting places. Have fun exploring!

William_S, Jul 2023
Some of the houses were not easy to find (Beyonce) and others seemed incorrect (i.e. "behind this brick wall" when there was no brick wall).
Response from Host, Jul 2023
Thank you for sharing your feedback, William. I apologize for the difficulties you experienced locating some houses during the tour. I have updated the tour information, specifically removing any mention of a brick wall that does not exist. Please accept my apologies for any frustration this may have caused.
Margaret_C, Jul 2023
Once we understood how to use, the app, tour was good. We went at dusk and seeing the beautiful homes and stunning views of the city was great.
Response from Host, Jul 2023
Thank you for your review, Margaret! It's great to hear that you had an exciting and enjoyable experience with the Hollywood Celebrity and Star Homes tour. I'm grateful for your patience in learning how to use the app, and I hope it made your overall experience better. If you're planning on traveling more, be sure to check out our Action+ Tour Bundle, which provides a range of self-guided tours for your upcoming adventures. Have a safe and happy trip!
Not recommend, not enough infos.
Eugen_W, Jul 2023
Not sure if it’s worth it… or just better hop into a real guided tour. The houses are hidden yes. But with this app you drive long ways along beautiful houses or corners which are also interesting but there is no explanation or even a hint of an info. So sometimes get bored because you just don’t know what you are looking at. For a quick tour it’s ok. We stopped halfway through.
Response from Host, Jul 2023
We appreciate your feedback on the tour Eugen! Our goal is to showcase notable celebrity homes and points of interest along the route. We understand that everyone has different preferences and we value your input. It's worth mentioning that the tour offers detailed audio commentary at various points, including the beginning, which provides insights into the locations you pass by.

Adventure on the Road
Lisa_S, Aug 2022
Tour was fun. Had some trouble navigating app. & some street signs were not visible due to long tree branches. We did enjoy the experience.
Response from Host, Sep 2022
Thanks Lisa for your feedback! I’m delighted that you found my tour informative and enjoyed it. We have no control over the long tree branches in that area. I'd like to know more about what went wrong and your issues while navigating the map. I’m not sure what happened, but I’d like to identify & fix it so that others don’t face that issue in the future. I also have 100 other self-guided tours for other parks, scenic drives, cities, and historic sites in the US — hopefully, you’ll get the chance to try them next time! Also, just to remind you, the tour you bought is yours for a lifetime. So, you can listen to it at home or on your next visit.
Not worth it
Jennifer_R, Jul 2022
It was extremely hard to navigate. We got so frustrated we gave up. It was confusing. I felt like I had to keep going between google maps and the app at places I could not pull over
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Thanks for the feedback Jen! For those having trouble with the “Go To”, following the given route is a great alternative!
Good idea...bad functioning.
Maria_R, Jun 2022
You have to work offline with the app but it's difficult to follow. No voice prompts. You can't choose options before hand and just do the ones you choose.. No cell service in area.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Thank you for your insight, Maria. It appears that you did not download the app or tour prior to your visit. Because there is almost no cell signal onsite, I recommend downloading both ahead of time. I added stop-to-stop direction pins to the tour. Anyway, I have 100 other self-guided tours for parks, scenic drives, cities, and historic sites across the United States that you should try the next time you visit! Remember that the tour you purchased is valid for life. You'll be able to listen to it at home or during your next visit as a result.
Don't waste your money
Harri_E, Dec 2021
I use my phone for photos and navigation, so I couldn't use the app to navigate and take photos at the same time as the audio would stop on the Bluetooth. Not use friendly and very heavy app, had to stop by a Starbucks and download 156mb of data on my iPad and still couldn't use it on two devices and we were four adults in the same car... All we could see were walls and bushes... Not recommending it a bit and I would have asked for my money back if it was worth my time...
Response from Host, Dec 2021
The audio and camera won’t interrupt each other — we have an extensive FAQ which covers audio/Bluetooth questions and 24/7 support who can help as well. And yes, it’s a large download (lots to see!) because we want it to work completely offline (no data/connectivity issues that way). We highly recommend downloading at home/hotel for that exact reason. And as we explain quite clearly in the description, the welcome, and the individual stories, not all homes are totally open to the street for the public to look through the windows. But quite a lot is visible of many homes, which is why so many folks enjoy this inexpensive and DIY tour option.
Would not recommend
Rachael_B, Aug 2021
It was not user friendly and too difficult to navigate without another passenger and clicking through the app as a driver is as too dangerous. Overall a disappointing experience. I went to the first two stops and then quit.
Response from Host, Aug 2021
We’re sorry to hear you weren’t satisfied with this tour! The app should be completely hands free once you get started. Can you contact us with details about what went wrong? We appreciate your feedback!
Great way to see Hollywood Homes
Elizabeth_P, Aug 2021
It was so easy to navigate and loved you could change your route. Cool explanations and history. Maps seemed accurate
Response from Host, Aug 2021
Thanks so much for your review! Flexibility is super important to us, especially on a tour like this one, where everyone has different celebrity homes they’ll want to see first! We hope you’ll keep us in mind for future adventures. You can always find our full selection of tours at ActionTourGuide.com!
Javier_G, Dec 2022
Malísimo. No le doy cero estrellas porque la página no lo permite. Muy mala experiencia, el 70 % de las indicaciones de la app son para indicarte si hay vuelta a la derecha o la izquierda y en las pocas en las que te avisa que hay una casa de un famoso, lo hace fuera de tiempo y confundiendo izquierda con derecha. Los 14 dólares pero gastados de mi vida.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Hello, Javier. Because there is no shorter route to go there, we placed additional direction pins, and I don't want travelers to become confused at every intersection. I hope this makes sense. Anyway, I also have 100 more self-guided tours for various parks, scenic drives, cities, and historic sites in the United States - hopefully, you'll get to see them the next time you visit! Also, remember that the tour you purchased is valid for life. As a result, you'll be able to listen to it at home or during your next visit.
