Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I was on a work trip and brought my mam she had never been to Los Angeles and I wanted her to see Hollywood. We did the 2 hour tour which I thought was great our tour guide was full of knowledge and very friendly all the guys were who work here. There’s a lot of great photo ops on this tour and some really beautiful views of Los Angeles. You can have snacks and stuff in the van and the tour covers a lot of places everything and more we weren’t expecting to see so I was very happy with that. The tour is a great price and I would recommend to those who are trying to see multiple destinations in one day.

The tour is mostly about Hollywood and Beverly Hills stars. The tour guide talked quite a bit about every home and it’s owners. The ride was beautiful on a beautiful day and Laurel Canyon was gorgeous. There was a little stop at Rodeo drive only few minutes and nice drive through Sunset blvd where you can see some of the famous iconic places
That is what this particular tour was all about. If you do not care about the rich and famous and all their glorious homes, don’t waste your money, get a stars map of Hollywood in Hollywood blvd and if you have a car and GPS go discover yourself

If you are just visiting maybe from outside California and want to have a leisurely and beautiful ride for a couple of hours and if you have very limited time this maybe a good ride

This company is also new so not too much hassling, which I liked

Make sure you tip your driver

Took this tour towards the end of our 2019 California Road Trip. First time in the US for our two sons (14 and 11) so we had to show them Hollywood. There are so many tours available, but we read reviews on here and booked it when we arrived in LA.

After an entertaining cab ride from Hilton Universal we joined a tour, guided by Richard Lawrence, a fellow Brit.

The tour was great, and not something you could replicate under your own steam. The weather was hot but the bus had plenty of shade.

An actor himself, Richard was hugely knowledgeable - he's even been in Friends - and made sure we had time for photos, particularly of the Hollywood sign. We saw plenty of house (Bela Lugosi was my favourite) and I loved the part where we drove up into the Hills and around by Laurel Canyon - the tour is not just sitting in traffic, you get a really good trip around LA.

Highly recommended.

Erm. I'm really not sure about this one? It's billed as an 'ultimate' trip around the area visiting famous movie and television locations and seeing the star homes of Michael Jackson, Al Pacino, Johnny Depp, Halle Berry, Dr. Phil, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Will Ferrell to name a few. In reality, it's nothing of the sort?

I think we saw a gate that once had Michael Jackson living somewhere behind it and a glimpse of a house on a distant hill that "might" have once belonged to Vin Diesel? Genuinely that was it. The absolute stars of the 'tour' was a car that our driver told us had been abandoned by the road nearly a month before although he didn't know whose it was or why it was there and a dog park where we might see (surprise) some dogs! There weren't any on the day we drove past sadly but it's OK because I have seen dogs before.

So this was so bad it was actually quite good? The guy knew virtually nothing and we drove aimlessly around parts of LA listening to him talk randomly about things that might, or might not, be true but weren't particularly interesting either way. As a visual drive round LA it was OK in that you did get some idea of where stuff was and the bus was alright and we didn't crash but the whole idea was completely lost on me. Maybe I'm just not the celebrity hunting type or maybe this tour is overstating what it offers? I'm minded to think it's the latter. Expensive for what it was, this would cost less if you just asked a cab to drive you around for an hour? It's not something I'd recommend.

Dear Seankata, We are very sorry our tour didn't meet your expectations. Please let us know who your top guide was so we can discuss the content of his tour with him. We frequently update our tours with the latest information, and if our guide is not up-to-date, and providing interesting, entertaining content, we want to know! Based on our 1500+ 5-star reviews, your experience is not the norm. So, we would like to offer you another tour with a different tour guide. If you can't come back for another tour, we will gladly refund your tour. Kind Regards, UHT Guest Relations

I don't normally leave bad reviews but I booked this based on the good reviews and I don't want anyone else to make the same mistake.

- Firstly the bus was not an open bus with a high roof as in the picture. It was a normal minibus with the windows lowered. This meant that there was a low ceiling and wide window posts which blocked the views, meaning you could hardly see any of the houses or sights the guide was pointing out. Everybody on the tour stopped trying to take pictures after the first 20 minutes as they all just gave up.

- Secondly the guide was not great. From the beginning he didn't even introduce himself or introduce the tour, he just pointed at all of us, asked where we were from, then got in the bus and started driving, leaving us all looking at each other as if to say 'What's happening?' I've had great tour guides in the past who have been funny, entertaining and engaging and he was none of these things. He sounded completely bored and recited which celebrities lived in which houses like he was reciting a shopping list. He didn't seem like a bad person in any way but I have no idea why he decided to do this for a job as he didn't seem to have any passion or interest in what he was talking about. It seemed like most people on the tour zoned out for most of it and were relieved for it to end.

I think we were unlucky as we did see another bus from the same company which was open at the sides with a raised roof (as advertised) and it overtook us on the route a few times and we could hear the guide being funny and engaging, and the passengers seemed to be having a great time so it was a real shame that wasn't the experience for us.

Sorry guys just giving an honest review and a warning to people looking to go on one of these. If you rented a car while travelling to Hollywood your time is much better spent just driving to the Beverly Hills sign and stopping at a few lookout points yourself + go for your own ride into the Hollywood hills. The drivers have no clue who live in any houses anymore, the tour is more about who used to live in some of the homes. My wife and I were crammed in this jam packed bus and couldn’t even sit beside one another, it was just a complete waste of money in our eyes. Not even a drive by the famous playboy mansion, very underwhelming tour. Save your $$ in my opinion

Dear Steveaddy01, Thanks for taking the time to write about your tour. We are disheartened to hear we didn't meet your expectations. Hollywood has undergone some huge changes in during the pandemic. It's true, many celebs have left LA, so there will be a fair amount of what "used to be" - but then again, Hollywood is a place with a rich history most find interesting. The Playboy Mansion is tricky in several ways. To your point, the Playboy Mansion isn't even the Playboy Mansion any more. It was sold years ago to Daren Metropoulos, the owner of Hostess brands. Also, depending on the guests, if families with teens or young children are on the tour, guides will sometimes gear the tour to locations and celebs their generation can relate to, not to mention avoiding unwanted questions from the children about it. While our tour guides are some of the most well informed and experienced in Hollywood, if you don't feel your tour was entertaining, we would happily set you up on another tour with a different tour guide or provide a refund. And of course, we will accommodate you and your wife so you can sit together. When we are busy, that does unfortunately happen sometimes. Kind Regards, UHT Guest Relations

Sat in the row next to the back and had a problem hearing the tour guide over the vehicle and traffic noise. Ask the guide to turn up the sound, but it didn’t help much. Switched seats with the people seated behind us because they were tired of banging their heads on the cross bar in the ceiling and the speakers were in the back. Didn’t help much because the speakers were mounted low behind cloth seats. When the guide spoke to the people in front of us, he had to call them twice before they noticed him. When I mentioned to the guide that we could not hear, he said he had turned the speakers up. Liked the guys running this tour, but they have done work to do. Add speakers at the middle seats and hire guides that know how to project their voices. This guide had supposedly worked as a guide at one of the large movie studios, but I think I know why he doesn’t any more. Had a very muffled voice and mumbled a lot.

We were a littler weary about a celebrity tour bus, since there are so many and so many people on the streets try to get you to ride their bus. We had booked this in advance due to the great reviews and it did not disappoint. Was very clean and organized. We got to see MANY celebrity homes and was a great scenic tour of the area. We had a great tour guide as well. They provide blankets and headphones so you stay warm and can everything the tour guide is saying. The bus is open so dress accordingly if you go in the cooler months. They provide a inside seated area until your tour is about to start, which is really nice if it is raining. Highly recommend if you've never been to the area.

We had an awesome time on the tour! The van is small and cozy and they gave nice headphones to hear the tour guide. Ryan was our tour guide and was awesome! He had us laughing the whole time. I didn’t think I’d like the celebrity part since I’m not too into following celebrities but all the history on the houses and the fun facts were super interesting. They also have a 7-11 right next door you can buy snacks and drinks at and take them on the tour with you which was awesome. Lastly they’re located like a block away from the walk of fame so we were able to walk over there and spend the day there after the tour. Highly reccomend this tour!

We did the trip last minute as we wanted to kill a few hours but were a little tired of walking. The office is well signposted in a strip mall and the staff who great you are nice and friendly. We loaded into the bus and were given blankets as it was a little chilly. Now I'm quite car sick but as it was an open sided bus/van I didn't get any sickness whatsoever.
Our guide was Steve who was very knowledgeable about old and new Hollywood history. He was funny and informative. You get headphones so you can hear him with volume adjustment etc. We went up Mulholland and saw houses belonging to Will Ferrell, Johnny Galecki, and further into the hills with Keanu Reeves' and Leonardo DiCaprio's house. We then travelled down Sunset (Johnny Depp's 'community' is interesting) and through to Beverly Hills and Bel Air.

It's an excellent tour, don't hesitate to take it!
