Cover all of the spread-out, must-see sights of Los Angeles on this flexible hop-on hop-off bus tour. Skip the hassle of navigating the city's legendary traffic while riding in an open-top, double-decker bus, which stops at 50 locations throughout the city, including downtown LA, Hollywood, Santa Monica, and Beverly Hills. Choose between 24-, 48-, or 72-hour tickets to suit your schedule and budget.

What to Expect

Voucher in hand, arrive at Grauman's Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard, the hub for both the Red and Blue lines, to board a bus. Alternatively, hop aboard at any stop along the route; buses come by every 20 to 40 minutes.

From there, experience the sights of Los Angeles without navigating the legendary traffic or hunting for a parking spot. At any of the 50 stops along the route, hop off to explore further, and catch the next bus to proceed along the route.

While on the bus, you can choose a covered seat in the lower portion or take advantage of panoramic views from the open-top deck. Highlights from the six routes include the Walt Disney Concert Hall, Sunset Strip, Santa Monica Farmers Market, Hollywood Bowl, and Venice Boardwalk. Most tours run from 7:30am to 9pm, but may vary by line and season. Call to confirm.

The bus seats were disgusting and looked like they needed to be fumigated. With safety belts hanging over the side of the seats. Notwithstanding that Starline should advise its customers of the benefits of wearing safety belts should there be an accident. The presentation on...More

Great way to see the town

We always enjoy the hop on hop off tours in cities. A great way to see the city and hear about the sites without trying to figure it out yourself. LA traffic is a challenge. There is no getting anywhere quick. I’m thankful I didn’t...More

Not a reliable form of city transport, but a great way of getting an overview of LA. Can be a lot of waiting around and service can be irregular.
