Overall rating

We had only a few days in LA and it was our first time there. So this was a great way to quickly cover the touristy stuff in the city, and get some interesting fun facts about locations as you go through the city. We didn't have to use any public transportation as the place we were staying was close to one of the stops.

The driver was awesome and funny! Made it exciting with a fake movie chase, adding music to represent certain spots (Beverly Hillbillies theme), as well as looking for celebrities. It was so much fun. The driver interacted with everyone. Celebrity homes, WOW! The whole tour was great and well worth going.

Had an amazing fun time. Sam, our tour guide was very friendly, funny, and we just had a very memorable experience. We even got to see Justin Bieber’s old house. The price is totally worth it !!! Ask for Sam to be your guide, great guy.

Easy to use. A lot of options and no issues when using app.

Driver was awesome was on time and exactly what I expected
