Did not care for this tour.
Did not care for this tour. The guide did not interact with us except when lecturing us on being on time. She ended up leaving a couple at Hollywood Boulevard! The city has a real problem with homelessness. We didn't need to see that.

Did the Venice Beach and Santa Monica tour. Venice Beach is the pits - dirty, really tired buildings, tacky, rusty cars, grotty tourist hole-in-the-wall shops. The canal visit was pathetic - a small waterway with tiny, plain houses. The guide kept emphasising how valuable property was (this house is $1.5 mil etc), and was oblivious to the fact that the whole environment was seriously passed its used by date. Santa Monica was better, a typical US tourist town trading on its links to TV shows ie Baywatch. Definitely wouldn't recommend Read Less

Took city tour post cruise as we had late flight and had not visited LA before. Visited downtown, Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood sign, Santa Monica and Venice Beach. Dropped off at LAX. Average tour. Informative but not a WOW.

20 miles of seven lane traffic jams, but to be fair the cruise line did say there could be some delays due to the traffic. Bit disappointed with the Chines Theatre where the stars and signatures on the ground are, it just seemed like any street in any city and lacked the wow factor we were expecting. Went on the Queen Mary for free, just had to show our cruise card and what an enjoyable tour round a bit of history Read Less

We took this tour at the end of our cruise. We were met at the cruise terminal by Vlad and it was a private 6 hour tour of Los Angeles with time to walk along Hollywood Boulevard, get some awesome panoramic shots of LA, and SAnta Monica beach, as well as time to eat and do some shopping. Hightly recommend this tour. It was 149.00 per person and well worth it. Read Less

Got stuck in traffic with cargo trucks all around us. Then when we got to downtown area parts were blocked off. Needed more than a half hour in the farmers market. Did get a quick look at all of the tourist areas.

Bus comfortable, guide very knowledgeable and pleasant. Went to Olvera Street where there were stalls, then the Farmers Market and spent about an hour here looking at expensive tat, could have eaten there but we weren't hungry. Went to Hollywood Boulevard and looked at stars on pavement and took pictures of Hollywood sign in distance. We then went back to the ship. I'd have preferred to miss out the 'shopping' and see more of Hollywood, perhaps going inside somewhere. Read Less
