Fantastic One Day of LA
This was a fantastic tour of LA packed in one day. Our tour guide, Josh was cordial and informative. He knew all the special spots for photos, and he was very knowledgeable not only of LA, but the traffic patterns.(he kept us out of heavy traffic and traffic jams) We saw so much this day, from the Santa Monica Pier,Venice Beach, La Brea tar pits, the Hollywood sign (got us close), and so much more. This was a great tour with the best guide!

Amazing Tour
This was an absolutely amazing day. Cameron was informative and obviously knew a lot about LA and made such an amazing tour. He was super funny, friendly, and very personable. Though the tour was quite long it didn’t feel that way because we were having so much fun. We saw very cool places and it didn’t feel too tourist-y. I would absolutely recommend this for anyone who has a day in LA. A fantastic day.

Great way to cram L.A. in one day
Josh was a great and kind guide; who was also very open to modifying the tour. We took this tour to cram as much of LA as possible for the 1 day we were there and we weren’t disappointed. We got picked up and dropped off right at the place we were staying and really enjoyed the day.
