Our tour guide was awesome! She really knew the history of LA and she showed us all the key areas. It was a very foggy morning and we didn't get to see the Hollywood sign so she took us around to see some celebrity homes to make up for it. She was on time and very professional. We were travelling with my elderly mom and Bing was very helpful in getting her in and out of the van. The van was very comfortable too. I highly recommend this tour with Bing as the guide.

excellent experience, and great guide, you will benefit from valuable advice, while touring the main spots in Los Angeles. I really recommend, especially to do it on the first day upon arrival, this will allow you to see the main axes and roads of the city, which will allow you to better find your way later.

Our city tour with Daniel was great, we are very satisfied with how he showed us everything and how he told us a lot about each place we visited.
