“Hollywood homes of the stars”
Reviewed 16 May 2014 via mobile

Driver was amazing. He took us to the homes of many celebrities. He wanted to know which homes we wanted to see. We stopped to take pictures of the Hollywood sign and views of LA. We enjoyed going up Mulholland Drive, through Beverly Hills, and down Rodeo Drive. He gave us the option of being dropped off at the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Excellent tour!

“Brilliant tour of celebrity homes”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

This was the only celebrity tour we considered, and weren't disappointed when greeted with some great customer service.
The car was spacious, with no windows so great views of everything.
I was very pleased to hear that they take special requests, and for that the guide and driver were outstanding. We told our guide, a local film student, some of our favourite celebrities and he went out of his way to make sure we got to see their homes. And by out of their way I mean, we drove up a winding, narrow Beverly Hills street to see Jimmy Kimmel's home, with some impossible manoeuvres conducted by the driver, all on our behalf! Our guide then also pointed us in the direction of Jimmy Kimmel's favourite coffee shop to see if we could spot him there.
We were hoping for a sight of the celebrities themselves, but no such luck this time. Although we did see some very nice cars which our guide assured us would most likely have celebrities driving them, but with their tinted windows it was hard to see.
We were also pleased to take a stop at a Hollywood Sign viewpoint, as we hadn't been able to get a good view from anywhere else.
Overall, an excellent and knowledgeable service, great tour of the area and well worth the money.

Just to note: This is primarily a celebrity-homes tour of the Beverly Hills area, and although some history and local knowledge is thrown in, there were some people in our bus that were not expecting the tour to be so celebrity based and were expecting more of a sightseeing/cultural tour I think. So just be aware of that.

“Great tour”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Highly recommended. I chose this company from dozens of others from the great reviews on Trip Advisor. Everything they advertised was accurate -- tour was slightly over 2 hrs long and took us through neighborhoods with stars homes, the hollywood sign, rodeo drive, and past many landmark establishments. Geoff was our driver and it was obvious he has been doing this a long time -- very knowledgeable and accomodating. He was kind enough to drive by Sur Restaurant and Kyle Richards store. I was most impressed that this company is family run, and they meet their guests in a quiet spot away from the crowded Hollywood Blvd where the other tour buses are located. It's obvious they get their business from great referrals since they don't need to stalk tourists walking by to get business. The vans seat only 10-12 people and most have open top so you can feel the breeze and have unobstructed views. The other buses were larger, charter-type and enclosed which would really detract from the overall experience. Definitely A++++.

“A Fun Tour of The Hollywood Area!”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

We went on this tour last week and had so much fun. The driver was a film student and knew a ton about all the stars and where they live. We even saw Cameron Diaz on our tour. She was zipping around in Beverly Hills in her car. It was a fun tour. We had people with mobility problems in our group and the tour graciously picked us and returned us to the parking lot so we didn't have to walk. Great tour. Great company. I would highly recommend this tour company and activity. It was one of the highlights of our trip to CA.
