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.

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.

This was my first time in LA and this tour ry helped with the overview of the LA city and got a great understanding of the city.In 7 hours I learnt a lot.

Best experience and time I’ve had, and great way to learn about the place
