Overview

Cover all of the spread-out, must-see sights of Los Angeles on this flexible hop-on hop-off bus tour. Skip the hassle of navigating the city's legendary traffic while riding in an open-top, double-decker bus, which stops at 50 locations throughout the city, including downtown LA, Hollywood, Santa Monica, and Beverly Hills. Choose between 24-, 48-, or 72-hour tickets to suit your schedule and budget.

What to Expect

Voucher in hand, arrive at Grauman's Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard, the hub for both the Red and Blue lines, to board a bus. Alternatively, hop aboard at any stop along the route; buses come by every 20 to 40 minutes.

From there, experience the sights of Los Angeles without navigating the legendary traffic or hunting for a parking spot. At any of the 50 stops along the route, hop off to explore further, and catch the next bus to proceed along the route.

While on the bus, you can choose a covered seat in the lower portion or take advantage of panoramic views from the open-top deck. Highlights from the six routes include the Walt Disney Concert Hall, Sunset Strip, Santa Monica Farmers Market, Hollywood Bowl, and Venice Boardwalk. Most tours run from 7:30am to 9pm, but may vary by line and season. Call to confirm.

Poor visibility and not very efficient

If up top is full, too cold and wet or just far too hot to sit there as it was for us, the lower seats offer very very poor visibility. The extensive movie advertising across all the lower windows unrelated to the tour make visibility...More

All members of staff we spoke with were rude and continually misinformed us of the bus times, frequently leaving us waiting for more than 30 minutes. The leaflet states buses are every 30 minutes, we waited longer than this on each occasion. The buses were...More
