I was in town for a business training session with a co-worker and we had only one free day in California. Since we didn’t have a rental car, we looked into a van tour from Newport Beach into LA/Hollywood. Lou came very highly recommended and he didn’t disappoint! He kept in contact with me the week prior via phone and text in ensure our tour was happening and any time changes.

He picked us up on time from our hotel in an immaculately clean and comfortable passenger van. He kept the van a cool comfortable temperature and had it stocked with ice-cold water bottles for us to enjoy. He chatted with us about the history of the area, interesting celebrity stories, and kept us entertained.
We saw downtown LA, the observatory and Hollywood sign, the Walk of Stars, lunch at the Grove, Rodeo Drive, Sunset Strip, and the beaches of Santa Monica and Venice.

He has access to the best parking and drop off spots, so our walking in the 90 degree heat was kept to a minimum. The tour had a good mix of driving around and viewing sights, to getting out and experiencing the sights.
Lou has a lot of contacts in the area, which is key to getting the best touring experience. Thanks Lou!

From the beginning to the end everything went as advertised. Eric was there on time, knew his stuff, just the right amount of description and insight and even knew where the closest restroom was for the 5 year old. Lou, at the office, was a delight to work with (last minute change) and even a follow up to much sure everything went well. Take confidence in booking with these people, they take pride in their work.

Thank you Mark for your kind words! I always check in with my driver/guides to see if everyone was happy with their tour. Eric mentioned to me that you and your family were very, very nice people. He enjoyed touring with you. Thank you again for choosing Have Fun Tours! Lou Nese (714) 658-2291

If you are looking for a tour to do, look no further! Have Fun Tours is an amazing family owned business and Lou is an incredible tour guide. Not only is he kind and thoughtful, but he is EXTREMELY knowledgeable about the area and gives you so much insight. Even my teenagers loved the tour and Lou and his insight. We learned so much from Lou and he even takes the extra time to check the news prior to your tour to ensure your safety.
He is not only knowledgeable, but he is very personable and easy to talk to. He really works hard and does this from the heart to give you a world class experience.
We were lucky that we did not have anyone else on our tour, so we basically had a private tour. Lou made sure we saw what we wanted to see, gave us extra time in places that mattered more to us and the places we were not so interested in we did not spend as much time there.
I learned during my California stay that the roads can be challenging with aggressive drivers. Lou, however, was a great driver and handled situations other drivers threw at him with the safety of himself and us in mind at all times.
He also gave us tips and tricks for our Disney experience tomorrow, for what we should try to do, etc. We seriously may come back next year just to try to do some of the things Lou suggested PLUS take another tour with him.
Lou also took some great pictures for us which he airdropped to us at the end of the tour.
I may not use TA a lot, but I do use another service that I have an elite status on and I do reviews often. I assure you this will be a first class experience and you will not be sorry! My kids really adored Lou, and I truly enjoyed his care. What better tour to take than someone with a ton of knowledge and who genuinely cares about your experience!

WOW, TaShane, I don't know what to say! Your kind words warmed my heart and soul. You and your kids were so sweet and considerate, which always makes my job a joy! You've done a great job raising them, not an easy thing to do today. I loved to watch their excitement when they saw something for the first time that really inspired them. I'm a native Californian, but my grandparents arrived from Italy through Ellis Island. After surviving hard times in New York and Philadelphia, they moved west to California. They started their own business and went through the Great Depression. But, they never lost sight of the opportunities here. I saw California through their eyes from these early days in Los Angeles and all the changes in this great state. I love to tell these stories of my family to my guests because it really gives them a perspective of where everything started. Oh, and thank you for mentioning my driving skills. It can be very challenging navigating through drivers who are texting and weaving in and out of traffic! I hope you all had a great time in Disneyland and got to see everything you wanted. It truly is a magical place! Please do let me hear from you again whenever you're in California. I'd love to show you some more fun places! Have a great new school year and stay safe! God Bless, Lou

This tour was amazing! Lou is first-class. He is very knowledgeable about the area, full of great stories (historical and personal) about each site/location, and very personable. It felt very much like a private tour. We did not want to drive to LA and hassle with parking, driving to each place, etc. We wanted to relax and be chauffeured around. He promptly picked us up from our hotel in Newport Beach and drove us to LA. We were so glad we picked this company. Nice vehicle with heat/ac available when needed. As the sun went down and it started to cool off, we were happy to not be in an open air vehicle. So many others looked miserable in the open air...and places we stopped they were simply driving by.

This tour allowed us to see and experience EVERYTHING we wanted to see in LA and more. He takes you to the typical tour sites, but because he's so connected and knowledgeable about the area, we were able to venture off the beaten path and see so much more. We even met Kit Hoover (she's my new best friend) and Mario Lopez from Access Hollywood.

All I can say is wow! I told him we would be back!

Took this tour on our anniversary.
The other party cancelled so we had the bus to ourselves. Eric did a great job of chauffeuring us around while telling a little history of the locations. Got to spend the day relaxed and no worries. Thanks Have Fun Tours, it was and will always be memorable. Mahalo, J and G

My wife and I were visiting Newport Beach and decided to take a tour of Hollywood. Since we didn’t feel like renting a car and venturing out on our own, we looked into tours for the area. I called the week before and spoke with Lou who was extremely helpful in answering our questions and a genuinely nice and friendly man. Lou was even kind enough to pick us up at our hotel and return us to the hotel after the tour was over. We enjoyed eating lunch at the farmers market, definitely something to see. Food was reasonably priced and good portions. Lou is extremely informative and took lots of pictures for us. The other couples who were in the luxury air-conditioned large van were a pleasant group to travel with. Make sure you block off enough time as this tour takes most of the day. Fortunately we didn’t have anything else going on later that day so we enjoyed it tremendously. You definitely could not beat the price for the time spent. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to get a good overview of Hollywood and Beverly Hills, but doesn’t want to deal with the headache of driving. Thank you Lou for a great day!

Owner Lou was very helpful and accommodating as I planned by trip. My guide Eric was extremely knowledgeable and made sure all requested highlights were covered and much more. It was obvious he truly knows the area and history and is passionate about sharing to ensure guests enjoyment. I felt safe and secure in his care and was delighted with the quality and quantity of experience on this tour. Highly recommended!

Thank you so much Martha for your nice review. We love to share all the little bits of trivia that I know of Hollywood. It was really quite something back in the day and still is. We hope you come back to see us next time you're in the area and we'll show you some more of what makes Hollywood so exciting! Lou and Eric

This tour was expertly planned and executed. We knew we could not experience and appreciate all of the sites without a guide, but Lou is a fantastic historian and is willing to tweak the arrangements to offer a more personal experience. This is the opposite of a tacky tour to hire on Hollywood Boulevard. The vans are comfortable and high-end.

Thank you Heidi for your kind words. You and your husband and son were such nice people! Being a native Californian, it is always fun for me to share my knowledge and the experiences I have lived personally, especially with such nice people as all of you. I hope to tour with you again if you’re ever in our “neck of the woods” again! Have a great rest of the year!!!

Lou was amazing from the beginning of our tour and throughout our entire day. Promptly picking us up at our villa in Newport Beach, Lou then explained what our itinerary was for the day. And this tour didn’t disappoint. Pointing out key landmarks, frequent star locations, and highlights of every area we traveled, Lou was an excellent host.

Thank you for the kind words that you had a wonderful time with me on your Hollywood VIP tour. It’s always my intention to make sure we cover everything promised when we take our tours and even keep a few surprises that we didn’t mention. We do hope that the nest time you come to visit you will allow us the pleasure of showing you around again.
