It's an overview. I agree with Patrick O. Good introduction. You can get an idea of what where you'd like to spend more time. Good tour leader. It''s a way to spend a day. It's not the best organized thing I've ever done. Checking in is a bit chaotic. A half dozen tours leave at the same time. The best... More

I love thinking I'm a celebrity so I took myself on a VIP TOUR and LOVED IT. Recommend definitely for solo or group events.

We took this tour on 1st Apr. this tour is all about just getting an overview about Los Angeles. If you are expecting to cover entire city experience, you can get started with this for a day...later plan your interest location separately. Do not expect to cover all the location here. You can cover Hollywood a bit.

We were told to wait at our hotel at 11:20 for a pick-up. After 15 minutes I called and was told they would arrive in 3 minutes. Another 15 minutes, another phone call, they are coming. 10 minutes later, I could only reach the answering machine. Ugh, finally showed up, No apology or explanation. Due to LA traffic, the tour...

Recently returned to San Pedro from a cruise to Hawaii and needed to kill time before a flight. Knew this in advance so booked this tour prior to sailing. Have to say there was some disconnect between the third party handling the on-line booking and the actual tour company on Bellanca Avenue in L.A. Once I had a phone number... More

We had asked our Concierge at Crowne Plaza Hotel about LA tours and he booked this particular tour for us. The moment we entered we knew it was wrong choice. Driver was the guide too and talked too loudly. Above his seat was written "15% gratuity is appreciated for our services". 15% tip was too much to ask. It has... More

We had a half day in LA after our cruise. Our hotel recommended VIP/Starlite tours, and said they would pick up and drop us off at our Crowne Plaza hotel. That was the good part of the tour. Enrique was nice, but he had a cold, the microphone didn't work, and he treated the van driver poorly. The static-y non-working... More

The level of disgust that my family came away with for this company after sitting through their tour is high. That the bus was a rattling bucket was one thing. The lumbering troll serving as the tour guide was another. At every opportunity, he was doing his moonlighting businesses on the cell phone where anyone could hear. In terms of... More
