Let me tell you.....Uncle Dave was AMAZING!!!! He should win the award for best tour guide in the world. He has such a refreshing spirit and welcoming personality. Anybody would feel comfortable being with him for a FULL day. Uncle Dave made sure he was attentive to us and kept us alert the whole trip there and back. He has a humbling spirit and would do ANYTHING to make your day as amazing as it could possibly be. My husband and I had a friend who lived in LA and he took time out of the trip to let us meet with him for a bit and he also went to get me Starbucks coffee on Hollywood because it was too hot for me to walk. I honestly can say that I miss him and can definitely call him a forever friend. I will hunt to find any tour that he is leading and book instantly!!!!!!!!!
I totally recommend this day tour. It is an intimate tour with about 7 people. Our tour guide was David and he was full of knowledge about California and was a lot of fun!! Santa Monica pier was really nice, we could have stayed all day! Overall, everything was just great and we really enjoyed it!!
Amazing trip and fantastic value for money! Uncle Dave made the long drive from Las Vegas to Los Angeles highly entertaining and informative. This was my first time in the states and I'm so glad I picked this tour made memories that will last for a lifetime! Great people, great tour guide and a great time, just book it! :
This trip was absolutely nothing short of amazing. I confirmed my reservation when we landed in Las Vegas so as not to forgot to do it! The staff answering the phone were extremely courteous and pleasant and my pick-up time was confirmed for 5:50 am. We were promptly greeted by our driver, Trisha, who was very warm and welcoming - she immediately offered my mother and I a bottled water and told us we would be making one more stop to pick up 4 people and at this time she would go over everything. At this time Trisha explained our stops and also advised if we needed a stop to please let her know. We had a blast on the way to LA Trisha was fun and a wealth of knowledge and offered us snacks and treats in the van along with more water! It was like going on a trip with family. Our first stop was the Santa Monica Pier which we had approximately 1 1/2 hours to enjoy from here it was on to Hollywood! Trisha took us down Rodeo Drive by Bel Air and Sunset Blvd then on to some see some celebrity homes such as the Playboy Mansion, Lucy Ball's house to name a few then. She dropped us then off at the gardens and fountain in Beverly Hills for photos and told us to take our time as parking is difficult in this area she texted me and told me to just text her back when we were all ready to be picked up which was great. Traveling with a group of 6 made the trip easy and enjoyable. Once back in the van Trisha gave us 3 options for lunch which was included and was nice enough to point out the options of each restaurant and we all wanted to go to Andre's the oldest pizzeria in Hollywood this was also a short walk away from the Hollywood Walk of Fame. We walked into the restaurant and immediately sat down and the food was ready, we all ate together and were then off to discover Hollywood. We had approximately 1 1/2 hours to explore Hollywood which was more than enough time. It was a steamy hot day so, again the 6 of us happen to meet up toward the end by luck and I texted Trisha we were ready for a pick-up it was easy and effortless. From here we now headed to the Hollywood sign in the Hills which was an amazing drive through the hills again Trisha was so accommodating and told us to take our time and take all of the pictures we need....the views were breathe taking this was the last of our stops. This trip is a long day as all of the reviews indicated as LA traffic is hectic but, our driver Trisha made a long day a wonderful memorable experience for all of us. The day did not drag, we had more than enough time at each stop and the information shared along the way was fantastic! I highly recommend this trip and this tour company. I know I will be heading back to Vegas next year again and will definitely book another trip with this company and also ask for Trisha as she was so much fun and made it an exciting adventure. On a separate note, I lost a ring I bought while in Vegas and did not notice it until I got back to my hotel late that evening - I texted Trisha who immediately answered me - I told her what happened and she texted her boss who would be driving the van we were in the following day and have him check to see if the ring was in the van. The following day Trisha's boss found my ring, sent me a picture of where it was and is actually mailing it to me - who does that? An amazing honest tour company and staff to go along with it - thank you-thank you!!!!
This trip was amazing!! David was our driver and tour guide. He was informative, witty and entertaining, made everyone feel welcomed and comfortable. (Which is saying a lot for the all the time we spent in the vehicle together.) We went on a Sunday, so traffic was not an issue. We saw everything as advertised and had plenty of time at the stops we made. Would definitely recommend this day trip, we’ll worth the money and time spent.
Our Tour guide Uncle Dave was the best I have had in years!!! He made the tour so interesting!!! He keep feeding so much information at each state and the plants and animals. He showed us each and everything that the website said. He played music as we where riding and played songs for different land marks. It’s was A+ in every way!!
This trip was the highlight of our holiday. A long day starting at 6am and finishing at 10pm but in my opinion, definitely worth it. David was our tour guide, he was fantastic, funny and very knowledgeable, oh and also a great photographer! Lunch, cold drinks and snacks were provided.
There was so much to see. We had free time at Santa Monica beach/pier which is beautiful. We had Pizza for lunch on the Hollywood strip with some time to explore the strip afterwards. Overall, this trip is well worth it if you've got the time to spare.
