Had a great time on this tour. Although it had few rush moments, I would recommend it in case you do not want to drive all the way. First day was a long drive and did not have much time for Hollywood. Next day was Disneyland and we were there for 12 hours. It was an awesome experience. Third day was Universal Studios, however, we had to wrap up in 4 hours since we had the return trip back home. Looking forward to more trips from TakeTours.
Awesome tour experience. But, yes, it would have been great had the stay at Universal Studios been a little longer. And yes, of course, we cannot expect more than what we were given in itinerary, as it's very condensed tour program to cover. Overall, yes, it is a must go tour.
This is my first tour with any travels in USA and myself and my family enjoyed quite a lot though there are some plus and minus points. In the beginning we ride on wrong bus and Tour guide didn't check my tickets and later on he realize that he took some wrong visitors and then he switch over us with correct tour bus. apart for this everything works well for us. i would suggest to be in LA little early so people can get time to see some other places in LA if tour can arrive early in the evening on first day.
secondly people should get more time in Universal so they can enjoyed more and the amount they spend can rewarded to them otherwise people gets only half day in Universal.
If you do not worry about time and want to avoid hassle of driving then it's worth to go and take this tour.
The hotels are great. The tour guide George is awesome! My husband was sick on the 2nd day and we didn't really enjoy the Disneyland. Tour guide George was very kind and extremely helpful in arranging the hotels transportation to the hospital. He kept calling me to ask about my husband's condition etc. We are very appreciative for what he has done for us. George rocks!
80% majority in the bus were indians, and we enjoyed the trip a lot. Our guide, George, was very well conversing in English and driver, Andrew too entertained us. We stayed @ Holiday Inn La Mirada and it was too good.
I am very well satisfied with the trip but I have deducted one star because the time provided to visit few places was not sufficient and most of the time we were in hurry as if to meet deadlines.
Overall, we enjoyed our trip and of course we got the maximum for what we spent.
I take this Opportunity to thank Take Tours (GotoBus.com) for making my trip a memorable one. I have planned my recent long weekend (3-5 Sep 2011) to Visit Disney Land and Universal Studios at LA. Based on friends advise i have booked 3 day tour on Take Tours (GotoBus.com). I have boarded the bus at Cupertino on 3-Sep-2011 09:00AM. We had a lunch break at McD on our way to LA. We have reached Solvang (A village with rich Denmark Heritage & Culture) at 3 PM. We spent 1 Hr in Solvang enjoying the cookies and bakery items. We reached LA by 7 PM till 8 PM we spent our time in an Indian City. Our stay was arranged at Ramada Hotel (Very Nice place to stay). The next day trip to Disney was memorable and well organized by our tour guide. 3rd Day half-day we have visited Universal Studios (Hollywood) and returned to our places. The tour guide made our journey pleasant and informative by giving us running commentary about the places and plan for the day. While the bus driver made our journey very comfortable and safe with his high quality driving skills. Overall our trip was very comfortable and memorable. I strongly recommend to plan this trip. I made few good family friends too during this trip. Please have a look at my trip pics.
It was a nice experience to travel with GotoBus. Tour guide was excellent...This is not the first time that I traveled with GotoBus. Previously We went to Reno-Tahoe with GotoBus service... 4.5 out of 5
I had a fantastic travel experience with GotoBus. It was very well organized. The guide Marvin was very very helpful. He gave ranking for all rides in Disneyland, Universal studios by telling us which ride to take and which one not to. This helped us save time. The Holiday Inn hotel is very comfortable. Guide Marvin is very informative and friendly. We already started preparing for next trip with GotoBus. I recommend all of you to use GotoBus.
This is a very well planned trip that can help you get the most out of your time for all who have less time to visit a lot of places. Tour guide was very very friendly. Would definitely recommend to family an friends.
This tour can be a good choice for the one who don’t have enough time but want to cover more else honestly 3 days is not enough. I didn’t find anything very exciting in Solvang. Disneyland is awesome but you must plan in advance as you won’t be able to get all the rides and shows and honestly you won’t be having a time for California adventure at all. Universal studio is awesome place but just a half day is again really unfair for it. If 1 and half day is just travel so 3 days is not at all enough. However GotoBus has managed it very well, bus and hotel were good, guide and driver were wonderful. This tour is a good choice for the one who don’t have time and want to cover everything, I would recommended to get 4 days tour to get the best if time allows you.
