Rated 3 out of 5 by JackieMom good tour but not a real comfortable vehicle to spend 8 hrs
very crowded vehicle to spend 8 hrs - we thought we would have a tour bus with comfortable seats and a bathroom.
We also thought that we would see some stars homes. Three hours was too long to spend in Hollywood as it was very dirty and not a lot to do as it was very hot. I am glad that we went but tour could be improved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dawnieme Great experience and opportunity to glimse Hollywood
We were picked up on time in 12 seating bus. Chairs comfortable for long trip and guide was friendly. We went to two other hotel to pick up guests. Left Las Vegas in a timely fashion. Bus was acting up and guide was quick to diagnose and get a new one to meet us on the road. Guide was informative and showed interesting relevant documentaries on the way to Hollywood. Great site seeing on the way through the desert. Guide was prepared for our needs (lots of beverages, blankets, pillows, etc). Stops were awesome!!! Santa Monica Beach beautiful! Hollywood Boulevard was so cool! We had the opportunity to see the set up for a Hollywood Movie Premiere! Ride home was long (traffic) but we were given opportunities to stop and stretch. Great time and cool sights!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bev60 The driver was excellent but looked very tired from doing 3 long tours in 3 days. I really don't think this is safe. He was very knowledgable .
I found the tour was too rushed. We only stopped for a total of 3 hours including restroom breaks. The mini bus that was sent was too small for that kind of trip and uncomfortable. We didn't drive by any movie stars homes. Also we had to eat lunch in the bus while the driver drove. We could of at least ate it at a table at the beach instead of in the mini bus.The driver/tour guide didn't come with us too point out all the stuff in Hollywood he just stayed with the bus. He pointed out stuff while we drove by then had to park a couple of streets down. I would never recommend this tour because it mostly involve being stuck in a small bus most of the time and not much of a tour.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Winnipeg7 Do not take this tour!
Overall this tour was a terrible waste of an entire day. We thought we were going to see star homes but then we were told only once we arrived in Hollywood that they weren't allowed anymore to go into these neighbourhoods. In addition at both Santa Monica and Hollywood we were left to wander ourselves with no guide to help find the more interesting sites. The van itself was very uncomfortable for such a long period of driving there and back. Spoke to others in our group and they felt the same.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pandy445 Hollywood looks better in the movies
The tour was great, our guide was excellent (Dennis). Hollywood, looks so much better in the movies than in person. It was a great tour, allowed you time to explose the pier and stars on the walk in Hollywood. The drive is long, so it's nice that the tour guide stops and he also puts in a movie about old Hollywood for reference. Overall glad we took the tour. The company provides snacks and a great lunch during the tour. Lot of photo opportunities as well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Shadow88 very misleading
I was very disappointed with this tour. We started the tour with a trip to the Santa Monica pier, and were not really there long enough to get something to eat. We left there and drove to a gas station where we took pictures of the Beverly Hills sign, then continued on past Rodeo Drive so quickly that I didn't even get to see the stores. We then parked on a side street and were told that if we walked 3 blocks, crossed the road and went up the escalator that we could see the Hollywood sign. We only saw the home of 2 celebrities from quite a distance and before you knew it we were back on the road going back to the hotel. As far as I am concerned, our tour guide was a glorified taxi driver who smelled like alcohol before driving us all back to the hotels. I was totally NOT impressed with this tour! Almost 8 hours of driving for almost 3 hours of tour.
