Great choice of tours depending on what you want to see. Reasonably priced too. You get to see all the key places you want to see as a tourist without having to walk too far or hop on and off public transport.

The buses were not maintained, grime was all over the 3 vehicles I took and no audio speakers were working for certain seats so we had to change seats twice. The staff were generally rude especially when you tried to ask a bit more details about the routes. There was no air-conditioning in the lower deck so in 30 degree... More

Great sight seeing tour, there are 4 tour lines to choose from and you and transfer to different trips at designated stops. Transfer coordination wasn't the best we spent 40 minutes waiting for the alternate line to arrive so we could continue our tour.

There were no guides on the buses and the recorded commentary but the GPS was not well synchronized. Sometimes the commentary was referring to an attraction that we had already driven past. Los Angeles is so huge that you have to plan your route & stops carefully. It takes at least 7 hours just to get from Santa Monica to... More

We purchased the 48 hour Hop-On Hop-Off tour. As we were based on the Walk of Fame we got the bus each morning from Stop 1, we could GPS track each bus using their app which was a great feature. The buses ran on the Red Route every 20-30 minutes, the tours were very informative and both the Driver and... More

Husband & I are well travelled and we rarely do these hop on off bus tours. This experience reminded me why. Quirky driver provided some entertainment including giving the middle finger to a fellow driver - tad unusual. In all seriousness the audio mentioned occasional buildings by name and maybe one sentence of its context. Zip content. Suggest you jump... More

It would be better if stops and schedules were more accurate. We tried to call them direct and when we did they gave us the wrong information so we had to go to the stop and missed the previous bus. They need to have the maps and times updated.

I've used City Sightseeing all over the world (London, New York, Sydney etc.) and this is the most disappointing service. The loops are long with very few transfer points to change routes and few stops are actually used by tourists. Staff were generally quite sulky. The narration is pre-recorded and spoken mainly by a British accent! At $64 for a... More

had a bad experience in San Francisco and LA didn't restore my Faith, the staff on the street were really nice , friendly and helpful but the drivers were a bit rude and bordered on grumpy, the traffic was very heavy in Santa Monica but that was no excuse to not treat your customers well.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
