    I have ALS and this is a bucket list tour. Simone was amazing and customized our tour. We got to meet Ken from Vanderpump Rules. Simone took all the photos for us and accomodated my wheelchair. I can’t say enough!!!! Best day ever!!!

    We had so much fun with “Uncle Paulie” on this tour. It was educational and informative as Paul our tour guide has a very strong knowledge of LA and California overall. We saw all the major LA sites but also, we got lots of extras on the tour that we probably wouldn’t have gotten on larger tours. It was a group of 6 of us, GA, MI, and NY and we all got along great like a small family. Will definitely book this tour again and would encourage others to do the same! Thanks again Paul for such an awesome tour!

    The driver was knowledgeable. I would have preferred an unmarked car- there was an ad on the doors. He spoke very fast and I didn’t like that we held up traffic at times.

    My partner and I went on an ~8 hour tour where we saw Venice Beach, the Santa Monica pier, Rodeo Drive, the Hollywood stars, and a few other sites in downtown LA. Tom, our tour guide, was fantastic; he was knowledgeable of the area, friendly, and had a great sense of humor! It was really a treat not to have to drive and to be able to relax and enjoy Tom’s stories of the surrounding area as we cruised down the highway. We would highly recommend this tour company to anyone visiting the area and would consider another tour ourselves our next time in LA! Thanks, Tom. - Sarah and Marc

    Nice tour to see many famous places in LA, Hollywood etc. Easy to book even last minute. Longer than expected due to heavy traffic on the way back.

    The guide was excellent. It was a destination tour, so we had plenty of time to explore each stop. I learned a lot about the LA area. Good recommendations for lunch at the Farmers Market.

    Our tour guide, Chris, was PHENOMENAL. He was very knowledgeable of Los Angeles, it’s history, and activities to do there. He kept the tour very interesting, and even made a couple of extra stops just for us! I would recommend this tour, specifically with Chris, to anyone and everyone!

    Glenn was a great tour guide and we really couldn’t have asked for a better experience. We chose this particular tour because we wanted to see all the sites of LA, but our time was limited, and we didn’t fancy taking our chances on public transport across such a vast city. Although we wondered about the price of the tour when we first booked, it really did turn out to be excellent value for money, worth every penny and made our stay in LA so much more enjoyable.

    Being taken to Beverley Hills or Griffith Observatory by Glenn, who is knowledgeable, but never preachy, made the whole experience unforgettable. From film locations to cultural history, he knows it all and is happy to share the highlights with you. He’s an excellent driver, his car is probably the cleanest I’ve ever been in and he’s also a fantastic listener who happily tailored the timings of the tour to our requirements.

    On a more personal note, Glenn was excellent with our three-year-old son, who is a bundle of mischief and probably not anyone’s ideal passenger. He was endlessly patient, professional and engaging as he answered my son’s questions and insured that he had a great time also.

    Thank you, Glenn, for an amazing experience, if we’re ever back in LA we’ll be sure to get in touch.

    Amazing day in beautiful Catalina! Highly recommend! The boat ride had awe-inspiring views. There was snow caps on the mountains in backdrop which made for spectacular scenery. Watched the sunset on the ride back. Super day!

    Booked a private tour of LA in 2022 Cadillac Escalade for my parents when they visited Los Angeles. They had a great time, visited all major landmarks such a Hollywood sign, Walk of Fame, Walt Disney Concert Hall, Staples center in Downtown, and even Grand Central Market - would highly recommend! Great service, great car, and an unforgettable experience. Thank you!
