Los Angeles: Hollywood & Celebrity Homes Tour
- Duration: 2 hours
This truly is the best tour for someone who only has one day in LA. We saw all the hot spots with a not-too-long, not-too-short amount of time to explore everywhere we went. All the passengers were great & we all took pics for each other at stops. Since you’re seeing everything in one day, wear your walking shoes! I definitely found myself jogging to explore everything I wanted to see at each spot, but well-worth it for seeing such a huge city in one day! I especially liked how much info our guide provided along the way, and the fact that there are ports for phone chargers at each seat took the stress off of needing to make a phone battery last the whole day. We drove through Santa Monica, stopped in Venice, stopped in Beverly Hills/Rodeo Dr, went to the Farmer’s Market for lunch and shopping, went to Griffith Observatory (closed due to covid, but offered a great view of the Hollywood sign and downtown LA), and walked amongst the stars on Hollywood Blvd (plus more time for shopping).
Our day started off by not getting there on time. I called ahead to let them know that we weren't going to be there in time and they were kind enough to move us to the next tour. Our driver (George) made the tour so enjoyable. He took the time to meet everyone and introduce them to each other. He remembered everyone's name and mentioned everyone by name throughout the tour. We had so much fun. We got to see many star's homes and traveled along Mulholland Dr, Rodeo Dr, Route 66, Beverly Hills and much more. It was well worth the cost of the tour. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to see the area up close and personal.
There were four of us in my group and the vote was unanimous. We all had a great time on the tour. We all agree that we got a well rounded view of the Hollywood/Beverly Hills area, the other group of friends who shared our bus were very friendly, and our guide was great. The only thing I would have wished for was just being able to slow down for a second or two to get good photos of special sites. That aside though, kudos to Gary King, not only for his expert city driving skills but also for his people skills. He was a super friendly, funny, engaging tour guide whom we all enjoyed riding along with!
All of the staff was friendly and accommodating. The pilot was very friendly and described everything well and answered all of our questions. It was everything we expected and more!
This was a great way to see this large city in a snapshot! We were able to learn a lot and go back to the places where we wanted to spend more time.
