  • Joydeep

  • 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.
