Well, I want ot be fair here. I had originally booked through Expedia for a Dec 24th Hollywood Tour. When calling ahead to "Adventure" from home to confirm as instructed on the voucher, I was informed the trip was not available that day. Numerous calls back and forth with Expedia, Adventure PhotoTours, and myself, ( I am on the phone/on hold for 2 hours) we are booked for the 26th.
Driver Dave is there exactly on time. As picking others up his comment when asking people to sign waiver was " Well it means if I do something stupid and get you guys killed, the company isn't responsible."
On the way to California we were shown two videos. A history of Warner Brother's studios, which was interesting, but would have been more relevent had we been visiting the studios. The other was a documentary about Grauman's Chinese Theatre, which was relevent because we did visit there.
Santa Monica Pier was as promised. No complaints.
The drive through Beverly Hills and the Star's Homes was disappointing. Our driver had the list written on a paper towel, and even then, was not at all sure what we were seeing.
The stop at Hollywood Blvd was fine. No problems.
Unfortunately for all involved the ride back to Las Vegas took eight hours!! Traffic!!!!! I know this was out of the driver's control.
My only complaint is really the guide/driver was not proficient or particularly interested in the "Hollywood " trip. Nice guy, perhaps better suited to the desert/wildlife experience.
Upon arriving back to the Las Vegas area, we pulled into another Hotel/Casino so they could switch drivers, because it was over their limit behind the wheel. So we met "Bob" . Very informative, and to be honest, not an easy job for him, to take over and deliver 13 tired patrons to their hotels.
