    Chad was an excellent tour guide, wealth of information and also very funny. Unfortunately the weather was terrible but we got to see and do everything as planned with the help of a blanket and Chads jokes keep us warm 😊
    Best tour ever!!!

    josh the tour guide was a plethora of knowledge about movie stars and where they lived, but he never showed us their homes. He would say “ up this street lived so and so” but would drive by the street and not show us the house. We had minimal to no chances to take pictures.
    Great tour

    The tour covered a lot of important parts of L.A. and the knowledge shared by the driver about every location we visited. I want never forget this experience.
    Totally worth it!

    Pros and Cons
    Amy_S, Mar 2022
    I loved the small size of tour. Not crowded. The history, stories and narrative from Gio our tour guide was nice. I felt we saw a good amount of sites. Only issues were: the ad said 10 min stop at the Hollywood sign. Which didn’t happen. Also was told by driver to prepare for a “blustery” ride back on return. It was far more than blustery.
    Amazing tour
    Jacqueline_N, Jan 2022
    This was a great tour and we all really enjoyed all the stops. Everyone was exceptional friendly and "English AL" was an amazing tour guide/driver. He even gave us blankets to keep our Miami butts warm. We ended the tour with a sunset drive through Santa Monica. It was breath taking. And don't forget to stop in the Poseidon coffee surf shop for a visit with the very friednly Barkley!
