5hr tour of LA with Jasmine was outstanding. She took us on a guided tour through Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Downtown LA and showed us some of the features written about in Michael Connolly's books about harry Bosch.

Lots of attractions to see. Definitely need at least a week. Take a trip to Santa Monica and check out the beaches as well as Venice beach. Travel is cheap with a taxi for the entire duration probably set you cracks few hundred dollars.

LA is vast so my recommendation is to take the open top bus and see as much as you can. I would only do two tours in a day, we squeezed in 3 but it took nearly 9 hours and in 30 degree heat, not advisable.

I knew we were in trouble when the driver (who picked us up at our hotel at the LA airport at 11 AM) began talking about his private life. Then he started flirting with my mother. All the way to Santa Monica, we heard about his girlfriends and how he could make us want to stay in CA. At the... More

It's disappointing to hear you didn't enjoy your tour with us when you visited. If you were uncomfortable or needed to eat, your driver would've been happy to stop to let you get whatever you needed. We never want you to feel like your stuck on the tour -- we state the length and schedule of our tours so that... More

I found this tour a little boring. I don’t usually go with tour companies but decided to try it out instead of driving. You spend most of your time in traffic between stops. Rodeo drive is lame, just a bunch of shops no can go into or afford. If you have a rental car, drive to Santa Monica and the... More

Nice way to see Santa Monica and the city. See Hollywood, up and down áreas you want to visit. Not cheap but worth it. Santa Mônica also worth to use the bus.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
