We normally do not do more than 2 hours, but this 4 hour tour was perfect for us! Carlos was a fantastic guide with lots of info for our group. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in LA and our conversation with Carlos.

I bought the grand city tour from Expedia as I needed a pickup from my hotel. I was unable to get Uber to work. Apparently Guideline doesn't normally pick up from my hotel area due to the rough area. When I explained my situation they...More

The tour was great! We started our tour from one of the hotels in Downtown LA (which was nice in itself because we had a drink in the hotel bar first, Guideline arrived on time to collect us...so NO standing around waiting with the crowds)....More

To see L A, get on a large VAN. Busses are to big to get in tight places. Tour starts downtown. Last call is the Farmers Market. This place has it all. The prices are low for L A.

We couldn't have asked for a better tour. The bus was comfortable, and driver Carlos was both skilled and knowledgeable. He talked nonstop about everything we were seeing and seemed to be an endless fount of knowledge. The stops were all good and well timed....More

We took the extended tour and got off at Griffith Observatory, Walk of Fame, Farmers Market and Sancta Monica. Between 30 minutes and 90. Really nice. But just a small bus, none of those with open roof.

We were picked up from outside our hotel, but there were a few stops, general the tour company will advise you of the location you will be picked up from. Have a great holiday :)
