I enjoyed the 2-hr long trip of Hollywood/Beverly Hills, communicative driver/guide with lots of info. The Co. is kind of lair. They overbooked and thus postponed our departure by 1 hour- the loss of precious hour waiting at their bus park. Poor co-ordination before dept and repeated pressure for tips by the driver. It could have certainly been better.
The Downtown LA, Hollywood and beaches tour was very good. Jerri, our tour guide was great. Just wished we had a little more time to spend at Venice Beach.
The tour allowed us to see and experience many places in L.A. In addition one day. Our tour guide was very upbeat and extremely knowledgeable and had a very nice personality. We leaned about the spots we visited and much more I between.
The hop on hop off tour is the most efficient way to tour in popular places. You're able to get on the bus at the start of Hollywood blvd, and they have 5 areas that they cover of California. The best thing about this service is that you only pay ONCE for a 24 hour time period (or however long you decide to do it for). For example, if I wanted to take the red route to see Beverly Hills and then decided to get off on sunset blvd, I could. Furthermore, if I wanted to get back on the tour I just wait for the next bus at one of "drop off/pick up" stops and show them my receipt. They provide headsets that you're able to connect to for the pre-recorded tour guide. I think it's great that you're able to explore so many different areas of California for just one price. In addition, I was very lucky that one of the stops left me one block away from my hotel. I was able to drop off some things, shower, change and get on the next bus to continue my tour. I definitely recommend this!
We were there in December and took the bus three separate days. Once to universal , once to Lego land , and once to sea world . The first day the bus driver was asking us to come 45 mins earlier than our departure time ... but others complained , so he rolled his eyes and acted like it was a huge inconvenience to pick us up at the scheduled time . Then he complained out loud about every person who did not tip him . The Lego land bus driver left 10 mins early and almost left behind a couple with three small children . The third bus was the same driver as day 1 and continued to complain about lack of tips . My suggestion , hire staff who enjoy their jobs and do not expect tips for doing it . Tips are not mandatory , but rather are a personal Choice based on service . I was not impressed with my experience considering how much money I paid per person to sit on this bus , I would have expected the driver to be pleasant .
