Waste of money

I signed up for the 4 hour Hollywood City Tour. What we got was the 2 hours Hollywood City Tour and then dropped off at a farmer's market for two hours. So we paid for 4 hours and got 2 hours. The tour did not include any history. We were driven past mostly rappers homes instead of seeing famous movie stars home from the past and present. We drove past the studios Charlie Chaplin built and nothing was even mentioned from the driver. How pathetic.

Does not worth the money

The bus was old, the mic was not really working so thee were moments we could not hear the guide at all. I was thinking that there were couple of stops to get down and take some photos and enjoy the views, but in fact no stops, only if thz driver can stop few sec depending on the traffic. Probably the hopon-hopoff bus would have been a better choice.

I selected the hotel pickup option and wasn't given a link through Viator to send my hotel address to Starline Tours. I sent numerous emails to Starline tours to confirm my hotel pickup and they kept saying we'll get back to you. The day before the tour I rang Starline and they told me they don't pickup from my area, therefor I had to spend 70USD on a taxi to and from Hollywood. I'm very annoyed with their lack of communication.

This was a no trip for me. I booked a hotel pick up, but despite my contacting the provider to remind them and seeking details of pick up time etc, I received no response and no pick up. A total waste of USD75.

We went on a Sunday - good day to go since less traffic. Interesting stories about some of the celebrities. Also. Rodeo Drive was fun. The add-on 1-hour LA tour is really just the Farmer's Market and Grove shopping.

Despite the awful fog and incessant rain, the tour was well-paced, well planned, and comfortable but it was the warmth and wit of our driver Michael that made this such a special experience. A consummate professional, excellent driver, but above all a superb host and comic, Michael is a star!

Had a great time - tour guide was very knowledgeable. Next time will pick a cooler day for a tour as there was no top on the transport and it was very hot. Difficult to see some of the homes as they were behind very tll fences andtrees.
