The bus part of the tour was great! We weren’t sure if we wanted to do a tour like this but were very glad we did! The guide had lots of knowledge on the area! I would not recommend getting out on Hollywood Blvd to walk and see the stars. It’s disgusting and filthy. The entire walk was homeless druggies and it scared my 15 and 9 yr old kids. It literally smelled like urine the entire walk.

You spend hours, depending on your time, and enjoy very realistic statues of famous performers from past and present. I had a lot of fun and found the height difference between me and many of them. It was great!

This was a great tour. Our driver was great!! He made the tour very fun!

Super trip with many interesting details and mega beautiful areas

Great tour, guide, communication, and check in process
