We were told to wait at our hotel at 11:20 for a pick-up. After 15 minutes I called and was told they would arrive in 3 minutes. Another 15 minutes, another phone call, they are coming. 10 minutes later, I could only reach the answering machine. Ugh, finally showed up, No apology or explanation. Due to LA traffic, the tour...

Recently returned to San Pedro from a cruise to Hawaii and needed to kill time before a flight. Knew this in advance so booked this tour prior to sailing. Have to say there was some disconnect between the third party handling the on-line booking and the actual tour company on Bellanca Avenue in L.A. Once I had a phone number... More

In LA on business and had some spare time so we thought the best way to see sights without driving was a tour The hotel concierge took a deposit and booked the short tour and said we would be back around 1:30 which was perfect so we could prepare for the next day We were picked up in a very...

We had asked our Concierge at Crowne Plaza Hotel about LA tours and he booked this particular tour for us. The moment we entered we knew it was wrong choice. Driver was the guide too and talked too loudly. Above his seat was written "15% gratuity is appreciated for our services". 15% tip was too much to ask. It has... More

We had a half day in LA after our cruise. Our hotel recommended VIP/Starlite tours, and said they would pick up and drop us off at our Crowne Plaza hotel. That was the good part of the tour. Enrique was nice, but he had a cold, the microphone didn't work, and he treated the van driver poorly. The static-y non-working... More

The level of disgust that my family came away with for this company after sitting through their tour is high. That the bus was a rattling bucket was one thing. The lumbering troll serving as the tour guide was another. At every opportunity, he was doing his moonlighting businesses on the cell phone where anyone could hear. In terms of... More

I used this service for my first son's Bar Mitzvah and it was great. So when it came time for my second son, it was a no brainer. What a mistake. The driver did not know where he was going even though he was given a specific schedule . He was disoriented and it was a nightmare. At the end... More

If you're staying near LAX you will be hard pressed to find a reasonably priced tour group. We had a 4hr tour just to fill in time till we could check in our hotel. Eddie was a great host and gave us a good idea on more obsure facts on different parts of LA. If you want to see everything?... More

We booked a round trip ride from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. From Los Angeles, we had to wait one and half an hour in the cold weather for the bus to come because they had overbooked and they would only let some people in the bus. We called the office and the man in charge would not come on... More

Booked a LA by night tour. Suppose to be a 5 hour tour, lucky to be 4 hours. Bus was almost an hour late leaving on the tour. The driver drove like a maniac, up to 80 miles an hour. He also tried to be funny by ridiculing the passengers. Arrived at the farmers market at 8.50pm when it closed... More
