Los Angeles: Private Full-Day Tour by SUV
- Private group
- Transportation included
- Duration options: 3 - 9 hours
It was a chilly and foggy day, bad for us tourists. Thankfully I was by myself, so I sat up front with the driver and HEAT! It's an open window bus, so I imagine it was pretty chilly, especially when went got onto the highway to the Grove. Levi is an excellent guide, lots of fun facts, he stopped or slowed down for any picture opportunities. Love the Santa Monica pier, the Griffith Observatory (the exhibits in the building were awesome, if I had known I would have headed there right after taking pictures of the Hollywood sign). I thought gawking at the celebrity houses was a bit much. Overall a great experience and I would highly recommend!
The day was a bit chilly, so apparently lots of people had cancelled. It was just us two and another person, yet the tour still went ahead which was great. The tour guide Sammy privided us with blankets to protect from the harsh winds. There is only one stop where you get out and takd pictures with the Hollywood sign and the downtown LA skyline, but there are plenty of times along the way where the car stops for a moment to let you take pictures of the celebrity homes. All in all, we enjoyed the tour and it was a good way of noting places you think are worth coming back to on your own.
The tour was the perfect start to my stay in Hollywood. Our guide, Breeanna, led us to major points of interest such as the Walk of Fame, TCL Chinese, Dolby, El Capitane, and Egyptian Theaters. Along the way, Breeanna shared fascinating stories about people and events that transformed the city and the industry. Highly informative and definitely recommended.
It says that there is a hotel pick-up but once I booked it, there was never an option for this. The $10 parking spot was an easy few blocks walk to the start of the tour. You could probably find street parking closer if you wanted to try. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and it was a very efficient way to see a lot of things in the city! Recommend!
Alana was a great tour guide. I was hesitant about taking a 7 hour tour, but it was a wonderful way to view so many different sites in one day. And you didn't feel rushed at each stop. I'd encourage it for any first timer.
