Off the 4 days of the real tour the LA 1 Day tour is useless...Its a waste of time as its more like a Getty Center tour only,the full day LA tour with Hollywood sign is a must for someone who visits L... More>>
We enjoyed this tour. The guide was very friendly and explained everything in detail in both english and Chinese. This tour is worth the money..
We enjoyed this tour, the hotels were every good. Stay in Harward Jornson which has Target, Walmark, Cosco in walking distance. I will come back again.
Off the 4 days of the real tour the LA 1 Day tour is useless...Its a waste of time as its more like a Getty Center tour only,the full day LA tour with Hollywood sign is a must for someone who visits LA, if its gonna cost more , let the tourist know and be given a choice.Not force only one with ~1-2 hr stops at four places and call it a city tour.(had I known it was a 4 stop thing I wouldnt have taken this particular tour). For the Rest of the tour , the 3 day Santa Barbara,SFO,Yosemite no complaints....it was well managed for the time available(Have to visit Yosemite with more time, 2 hrs there is too less.)
Hollywood is under the option of Universal Studios. You selected LA city tour, so you will not see Hollywood.
we enjoyed this tour, they received us at the airport and also drop us after the tour. Hotels to stay were very good, guide Larry was very helpful and took good care of tourists no surprises or extra charges bus is in a fairly good conditions. I would say considering the money i saved and places we saw this tour is very good.
Disappointed to get Guesthouse instead of Hilton, but upgraded and got Crown Plaza. Clean hotel, but nothing within walking distance. Luckily hotel offers shuttle services. Tour guide to Disneyland was not very good, spoke very poor English, which I guess is ok, since we are in Disneyland. Day 3 - LA to SF. Good thing we good another tour guide. The tour was in English/Mandarin (tour guide also spoke Cantonese). TOur guide was very good, even at full capacity, he was patient and organized which made things run very smooth. Nice drive to SF. Hotel in SF was Courtyard Marriott. Hotel is very spacious and close to many amenities. I am giving a 4/5 because for the price we paid, our expectations were not high. This tour is not bad, just be prepared that most of the passengers are Chinese.
The itinerary changed when the trip started.
The first day trip to Universal studio is conducted by different guide and the bus is late for 1 hr on way back, which is sad but ok for me since we're at Universal studio. Stay in Howard Johnson which has Target in walking distance. The hotel changed to Sheraton San Jose, which we got a suite! There was a great mix of tourists from India, China, Korea, Europe. The guide's English is average. So do take note.
