Overall a nice tour that lets you see a lot of LA in one day. Of course it's a bit "Hollywood-heavy": the star used to live there, the starlet in the hotel, etc., but you have to reckon with that in LA. I used the tour to bridge my one-day stopover so I didn't have to hang around the hotel all day. The tour even lasted longer than announced, almost 9 hours instead of 7.5. Hotel pick up and drop off went smoothly. The times at the various locations (Santa Monica Bay, Venice Beach, Beverly Hills, Griffith Observatory, Hollywood Boulevard/Walk of Fame and Farmer's Market) were sufficient and there was never any stress. The guide was friendly and informative (sometimes a little too informative like that) and gave us a good and safe drive around LA.

We had a great day in LA and saw everything important thanks to this tour. You didn't have any parking problems, you were let out at the sights and picked up again after a reasonable time. The organization was great. We were picked up at the hotel on time. During the drive the driver told a lot about the city and the buildings we saw. It was a nice tour!

The tour offers an opportunity to get an interesting insight into the city of Los Angeles. Obviously, time is a bit tight as the stops (between 30 and 40 minutes maximum each) require you to choose what to visit first, otherwise you wouldn't have time to do everything. Considering the difficulty of getting around the city center on your own, I'd say it's a good compromise to see the essentials in a short time.
