My favorite part of the Grand City Tour of LA was watching my teenage grandsons listening intently to our tour guide Bing's narration. She made the tour so interesting, the boys even put down their cell phones for a bit. Bing threw in several extras for us and she spent just the right amount of time stopped at the sites. We never felt rushed. My husband and I had been to some of the sites before, but we learned a great deal more from Bing. Highly recommended.

Had the best time touring LA with Guideline Tours. Got the chance to visit the 'must-sees' in LA plus we had an amazing guide in Bing. She is very friendly, pleasant, knows a lot of interesting stories about LA and very patient in answering all questions. Highly recommended especially for solo travellers who would like to explore LA.

I'm very glad that I chose your tour. It was our first time in Los Angeles (and in the US). Since we only stopped here for a week, we wanted a quick overview of what's in Los Angeles. And we got it, and much more than we expected. I really liked that our guide Paul talked a lot about the history and development of Los Angeles and his life in the city. This tour is for the most part a car ride through the city, but there are also enough small stops to take pictures and enjoy the views. I really liked the Griffith Observatory, which had wonderful views of LA and the Holliwood sign. Lunch at the Farmer's Market, LA's official Christmas tree and small shops - I'd definitely like to go there again. Although I'm not somuch into celebrities life, it was still interesting to see where they live. LA is a very beautiful city with its interesting little houses and garden designs. Each district is very unique and different look. Paul, we are sincerely grateful for this great tour! This tour was definitely one of the highlights of our trip.

Well, we suppose to have a tour with other people but other group cancelled so we were able to have private tour with Paul. It was really great because he was able to show us places he only shows in his private tour.
I really liked the aspect of him telling us a more depth history of LA. Of course tour did not had shortages of expected stops like Hollywood walk of fame, Rodeo dr.,Griffith Observatory and Beverly Hills sign. But Paul also showed us real side of LA like surrounding of City Government of Los Angeles and Farmers market.
He gave us plenty of time to look around and take pictures.
I would highly recommend the tour once you are in Los Angeles, money will be well spend.
