Traveler Tips

The top is open which is great, but know that it can get very cold up in the hills so I'd recommend bringing a warm sweater and maybe even a knit hat to keep ears warm too.
There is plentiful parking available in structures about a block away.
It gets super chilly up in the hills in the morning with the air blowing through the open bus.

Great tour, beautiful day
Eleanor_d, May 2023
Kent was a great tour guide. Would have been good to have seen a few more houses vs hedges but appreciate that involves raiding privacy!!
Weekend outing
Mario_H, May 2023
So worth the trip had a blast with mr hollywooddd. Tour guide was enjoyable and funny. The trip was worth every penny. Highly recommend to family and friends. Make sure you ask for mr Hollywood. He’s the best.
Good valley drive
Venudhar_H, May 2023
Kent drove in open Ben van for about 2 hours and explained each and every location in a very detailed way. I like Kent, he was talking all along for almost 2 hours. Highly recommend this tour.
Would not recommend
Heather_O, May 2023
Most of the tour consisted of random (and likely false stories) from Mr. Hollywood. He went on tangents about things that were not interesting to hear about, for example that motion pictures are pictures in motion (which he told us more than once). Most of his stories were common sense. Quite a few of the houses are no longer owned by the famous people he claimed, which takes away from the tour. He would also point out a house and it wasn’t clear what house he was talking about. Was not an entertaining tour. I think you could find a map of Hollywood homes and take yourself on a much better tour.
Great tour of LA!
Morgan_S, May 2023
My fiancé and I took my mother-in-law because she has never been to LA before and has been asking to go. It was the perfect way to show her around and to see all the “need to see” spots!! Her favorite part was seeing Gwen Stefani & Blake Shelton’s house! We loved the whole tour and our tour guide, Mr. Hollywood, made the whole experience so fun and gave us the inside scoop on Hollywood! Highly recommend going!

Best host!
Kacper_R, Apr 2023
Mr Hollywood was an amazing host, he has showed us everything that’s there in the area! The trip was definitely worth for the price paid.
Cheryl_G, Apr 2023
The tour guide/driver was funny and knowledgeable, and I loved how he wove in history with salacious celebrity tidbits.
Do not recommend
Donna_S, Apr 2023
The tour bus was not the one picture. Bus we went on the seats were uncomfortable and small. Guide was good. Tour did not cover everything advertised.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Sorry, that the rain and bad weather forced us to make emergency changes but now that the sun and good weather is back, come back and try us again on us.
A must!!!
Janette_S, Mar 2023
A great experience for the price paid. Mr. Hollywood, our driver/guide was fantastic! So enthusiastic! Loads of sights covered with informative commentary throughout. The bus was different as advertised, as seen in my photos, and was breezy up in the hills - so a good tip is to wrap up.
Waste of time and money
Jones_M, Mar 2023
The driver was not entertaining. He spoke very negatively about the industry and did not offer any positive or impactful information about Hollywood. Too focused on himself. He was going too fast for anyone to take pictures. No opportunity for photos and we were so far away from the Hollywood sign we could not get a good picture. Did not actually see any homes of the movie stars. Not worth the time nor money.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
When the weather is bad the open bus is no fun in the rain. The sun is back and we are back to redeem ourselves.
Awesome. Highly recommend!
Christina_B, Mar 2023
Our Driver was Awesome, funny and engaging. What a Great time! The scenery was beautiful and our guy new about the trees and vegetation as well as celebrity news. We had a wonderful time
