We were on the road with Dennis and his fellow travelers for around 10 hours. Dennis prepared and carried out the tour professionally. This way, extensive Los Angeles can be easily explored in one day. Free of searching for a parking space, navigation and travel preparation literature, we were able to discover the “main attractions”. We were in LA several times years ago and yet we keep discovering new things. Dennis always had water bottles ready for us and Sandra also gave us small sweets. An all-round great experience that we highly recommend and would be happy to repeat ourselves.

My sister and I were on a tour of LA with Dennis and other German-speaking tourists in October. For me it was the second time and it was great again. Well organized, friendly and attentive, Dennis drove us around. His information was well-grounded and easily conveyed. THANK YOU Dennis - the best wishes for you and your family come from Chris Schneider and Sabine Koch from Hamburg and Bispingen ‍♀️

Everything is perfectly organized from booking to the end. Very personable, nice guide. The city tour was absolutely worth it and is highly recommended. It never got boring. We were entertained very well during the trips to the sights. Sufficient time at the stops was also planned. Not too much and not too little. Top.

The tour was very good! We can only recommend the tour. The contact in advance was also very good.
