Dec 2021 • Couples
It was a great way to see the sights in a relaxed way. Key was a wonderful tour guide. She gave an interesting and entertaining running commentary. We stopped at the farmers market and had time to eat and walk around. There were several other stops at the popular sights. It was cold in the open air bus, so check the weather before you go and dress appropriately!

Great tour of Hollywood.
Chad was an amazing tour guide. He had great stories to share along the way. He must spend all of his off time researching information to pass on. Would recommend this tour to anyone.

Best LA Tour with Brandon Gibson
Nov 2021 • Friends
I was in town for my friend’s wedding and took the “Perfect 5 1/2 Hour” LA and Hollywood Tour with Surf City. Our tour guide, Brandon Gibson was the BEST! We saw all the highlights, had the best photo shoots and lunch at the farmers market. Brandon was incredibly friendly and helpful. He even had good jokes and is an actor in several Netflix shows and commercials. Fantastic recommendations for our stay as well. They even pick you up right at your hotel. Spend the money - it’s worth it hands down!!!
