The bus part of the tour was great! We weren’t sure if we wanted to do a tour like this but were very glad we did! The guide had lots of knowledge on the area! I would not recommend getting out on Hollywood Blvd to walk and see the stars. It’s disgusting and filthy. The entire walk was homeless druggies and it scared my 15 and 9 yr old kids. It literally smelled like urine the entire walk.

Chelsea was amazing! She really made the trip even better! Very knowledgable and super friendly - loved the dad jokes!

This was a great tour. Our driver was great!! He made the tour very fun!
