Tour was good but for no reason they stop at hollywood studios for less time than they can. They could reach studio either early or leave a few hours late or both. Everyone is interested to spend there more time as entry fee so high and long queues. Other things were good.

I recommend this tour!

Tour Guide: First and second days were very good. Third day with a different guide - I think he needs more training. Accommodation: Knott's Berry Farm Hotel, perfect and close to eateries, stores. Transportation: Drivers were good, buses on time but it took us 3 transfers from Los Angeles to San Jose.

I recommend this tour!

I had a great trip this weekend, 4 days in LA was awesome, relaxing. The bus was on time, tour guide was professional, and most of all the price was a bargain. Would recommend others to take this trip and try!
