Our the tour guide Jeff kept us entertained throughout our journey! It’s a perfect tour to do when you don’t want to drive to all these touristy places yourself! We had ample time at each stop to enjoy the scenery. I definitely would recommend this to friends!

Jeff was a fantastic tour guide, providing comic relief and informative tips along the tour. It's a great way to start any trip to LA for first-timers as you get an overview of things to see and do. I can't wait to go back to Griffith Observatory, Grove and Farmers Market, and LA Brea Tarpits.

I had a great time. Our tour guide Jeff was a pretty cool guy that had a great personality. He kept us entertained the entire time with facts about different areas of the city and bad jokes, while waiting at traffic lights. He was able to connect with us by where we from, names are so impersonal. LOL!! I wondered why this attraction had only a few reviews and Jeff informed us that it is a fairly new tour that began a couple of months ago. It is definitely the "appetizer" of tours for LA, as he stated. We were able to see so much in the time allotted for this tour. I wish I had done it within a day or two of my visit to LA. There are places on the tour that I would like to spend more time at. I highly recommend this tour and hope that you have Jeff as your guide.
