      It was OK, the bus could be cleaner & the tour guide was full of himself.
      Apart from the rude and very unapproachable start overall the tour was OK. We got it thorugh a Groupon deal, so we felt the price was OK although if I had paid full I think it would be a bit of a rip off.

      Don't pay full price - Don't expect a lot either
      I had friends visiting from out of town, so I got to play tourist in my own backyard. Get the deal on Groupon for $19. It's not worth $49. LOCATION: The storefront is on McCadden literally behind the Starbucks that is on the corner of MaCadden/ Hollywood Blvd. You can get either on a good tour bus, or you can get a piece of sh!t bus where the seats are dirty and torn. They wanted us to catch a dirty white bus 1/2 a block away. Having 2 disabled women we were not willing to walk that far. The manager had our driver Tommy bring us a decent, covered bus. While it is covered, there were no windows on the bus… but you are covered from the sun, not necessarily protected from the wind. Tommy took us all over the Hollywood hills, Melrose, Sunset, and even over to Rodeo Drive/ West Hollywood. He pointed out various Studios, landmarks and pointed out some homes that may (or may not have been) owned by celebrities. He would pull over, but for a few seconds. Not really enough to get out of the van, nor was it safe enough to. HIGHLIGHT OF THE TOUR:The one unexpected and definitely unplanned highlight was when we were leaving Rodeo, a black SUV pulled up next to us on Santa Monica Blvd. The window rolled down, and it was Gene Simmons from the rock band KISS!! OVERALL THOUGHT:Our tour ended closer to 1:00, so over 2 hours. Was this worth full price? Nope. Is it worth a Groupon? Yes but don’t pay more than $19!

      Hilarious and informative
      Was everything we wanted plus some. Tommy our bus driver had all the best dad jokes. He knew tons of info and knew the area very well. The route took us by the Hollywood sign, the theatres, celebrities houses, plus more. If you are going to go on a tour do this one!

      The trip was good overall. The guide was good and explained things really well. We stopped briefly at the celebrity houses. I wish he would have shown more celebrity houses. My family had fun.

      I bought the tour so that I would not have to drive around showing them LA on my own. It was their first time visiting from Nashville TN. We loved the the tour and Bobby K was excellent.

    Our family took the tour on a whim and had a great time. We were in town visiting family and even LA residents had an enjoyable time. The tour was a great way to see a good bit of Hollywood and surrounding areas without driving yourself. I would recommend this tour.

    We enjoyed our trip through Hollywood. Our driver was lively and delivered a top notch tour. It was fun for the locals and tourists in our group. Would definitely recommend taking this tour for an overview of the city.

    I have never felt so unsafe on any tour as this. The driver reportedly had a lifetime of experience and was doing nothing but wrongdoing while he was driving. He accelerated around dangerous curves and did not have time to see the landscape. On 2 occasions we got off the road, and he just laughed. I did not enjoy that tour at all, rather I was grateful that it ended and that I was safe. It is not the right tour if you want to relax and enjoy.

    First of all, my mom and I wanted to do this tour at 6:30 in the evening after our flight came in. We just thought it would be a cool thing to do on our first night. WITHOUT WARNING, our booking was changed to 4:00, which we had no chance of making. Luckily (or unluckily), I checked my e-mail in time to not miss out on the tour. I was upset, but I let it go, I just set the time for the next day.

    So, we get there a half our early, as suggested by the company. We knew we were early, but he said it should not be too long before we got our tour. He said to come back when we had 5-10 minutes before our tour. We just looked around the area. We cam back when instructed and he said it should be 10 minutes.....20-30 minutes later we loaded up into the van. He took us around the block to a couple of places... nothing really special at all. Really what he was doing was stalling for the next tour. What we found out later was they have one tour bus and really just try to combine as many tour times as possible into one tour. So, the 10am will be at the same time as the 11am tour.

    So, finally, after stalling for now 50 minutes, we got on the road.....except for the multiple stops to pick up other people. Overall, the tour was fine. I really did not believe most of what the guy was telling me. He would pull over and talk for 20 minutes about people who did not live in this house or make us answer questions before we could move.

    After all that, the had a sign expecting us to pay 10 a person for a tip...I definitely wish I had gone with a different company.

    This is the WORST tour I have ever been on. We got there and waited 45 minutes for the tour "bus" and driver to get there. The man in the office kept telling us "5 more minutes". There was no where for people to wait in the office so he told us to wait in the parking lot. There were numerous men in the parking lot trying to sell us drugs while we waited. Other people were begging us for money. The "bus" finally got there and it was so dilapidated it looked like it would fall over. The speakers went in and out (more out than in) the entire time so we could barely hear what the guide was saying. It is an open air vehicle so with the wind it was impossible to hear without the speakers. I must say, the only good thing about this tour was the guide. He was funny and very nice. He told us multiple times that he was sorry about the speakers. He said he tells his boss all the time that they do not work but the boss does not care. That is absolutely unacceptable, but completely believable after he kept telling us the shuttle would be there in 5 minutes when he very well knew it would not be. OH, and we got pulled over by the cops for sitting in someone's driveway. I honestly could not have been more disappointed with this company. I am all for saving money but this is not worth it. All down Hollywood Blvd were tour companies with nice vans waiting for people to sign up. I wish I had known this before booking mine ahead of time on groupon. Just go to HollywooD Blvd and check out the tours before signing up for one. There are so many there is no way they will be sold out. Good luck!

    Booked a 9:30am tour. Arrived at 9 am to the location on the ticket (the check-in as directed by the reservation) and the place was locked up tight. Called and left a message on the machine of the 1-800 number on the reservation and never received a call-back. At 9:35, someone showed up with a sign and directed us around the corner to a company whose name and address did not match the tickets. Waited another 20 mins until the Manager showed up and confirmed we were on his list. Waited around some more while the staff yelled at each other. Finally got in a van at 10:15. Then we drove around the block—during which the driver (Johnny K) cussed and cat-called a lady walking across the street—and parked...the driver left...and suddenly we were told to move to another vehicle. Went to that vehicle...then were driven across the street to another “luxury bus” with plastic seats. Waited there for 15 mins before we finally left at 10:45. Driver (Lawrence) was fine, nothing special. Saw a car accident in Beverly Hills and a purse-snatching by Hollywood High followed by watching the getaway driver rip his rear bumper off on a fire hydrant that were more exciting than anything he showed us on the tour. Would absolutely NOT recommend ever using this company again, as the utter lack of respect for my time and honoring their commitment of customer service was dismaying. Some Groupons were not meant to be purchased and this is most definitely one of them.

    Per company's request, we arrived at 2:30 for 3 p.m. tour. Boarded a rather beat-up van conversion at 3:10. The driver drove us around a couple of uneventful blocks, then went back to the office's parking lot where he left six of us in the blazing sun for over a half hour while the company tried to gather more guests. Eventually, we left at 4 p.m. and had a decent 2-hour tour, but by that time, all of the guests were angry. Unfortunately, the driver was the only one we could complain to, so he got no tips. We also had to miss dinner because the tour started and finished an hour later than we had contracted for, and we had theatre tickets. No explanation, no apology = no good company!

    A brought a discount voucher on groupon and as I have done many of these type of tours was not expecting much but to my surprise this was the best one I have done in Hollywood. Sammy the driver was funny and very informative. We went up Mohulland drive which have not been up before and great views back to the city and Hollywood sign and showed us that many celebrity homes. We then headed back into Beverly hills showing us Rodeo Drive and former celebrity homes in Beverly Hills. I would recommend this company if looking for this type of tour.
