Our tour was shared with another couple and we had an awesome time. Traveled through neighborhoods to see celebrity homes, Griffith observatory, Hollywood sign, chinese theater, rodeo drive and Hollywood walk of fame. Tour was approximately 4.5 hours. Don't hesitate just book it.

We normally do not do more than 2 hours, but this 4 hour tour was perfect for us! Carlos was a fantastic guide with lots of info for our group. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in LA and our conversation with Carlos.

This is an excellent time-bound tour especially when you are in a tight schedule. Carlos is a great tour guide and provides precise explanations. We were actually late for the pickup, but Paul picked us up separately and made us join the tour van! Both...More

We took the extended tour and got off at Griffith Observatory, Walk of Fame, Farmers Market and Sancta Monica. Between 30 minutes and 90. Really nice. But just a small bus, none of those with open roof.

We were picked up from outside our hotel, but there were a few stops, general the tour company will advise you of the location you will be picked up from. Have a great holiday :)
