Not enough buses to offer the promised service
Percival_G
, Aug 2022
We booked a two day trip which allows you to experience three different tours. Unfortunately, the 3pm purple tour to the city (downtown) was cancelled the first day so we decided to get there earlier on the 2nd day but then the 12.15pm tour was also cancelled. So we had to hang around for an hour to wait on the 1.15pm. This tour simply does not have enough busses to offer the service that they promise and make you pay for. In the end we did not do much hopping off because we realised that we were just waiting and waiting around for the bus to arrive. I will not use this operator again.

Quite long
lynn_t

The Hollywood branch of the tour was good. The Santa Monica branch was long. The beach area is beautiful, otherwise, very long tour. If you plan to do the Santa Monica route, get off the red line at the appropriate stop, otherwise - if leaving from Dolby Theater - you end up riding the red line twice. My 15y/o and 17y/o were largely unimpressed, and kept asking when it was going to be done. We did the Hollywood/red line, lasting a generous 2hrs. We did not realize that the Dolby Theater stop only runs the red line, so by the time we took the red > to get to the yellow > to get back on the red (as we were parked at Dolby Theater) it was well over 4hrs. (In addition to the generous 2hrs we had already done.). My misunderstanding that neither the red nor the yellow bring you through a route passing homes of the stars - the part my teenagers were most looking forward to. Overall, I would try a different option if we return to LA.

Very sad and hot tour. The bus was over 30 minutes late. No air on the bus. No real interesting stories.

PLEASE DON'T, the negative reviews are true! I gave them a shot anyway...
Rising_S
, Jul 2022
I'm easygoing and was giving these reviews the benefit of the doubt... and I am going to tell you right now DO NOT USE THIS SERVICE! The buses do not leave on time nor did they at the time arrive on time. Several people on our small bus started to complain about the time frame. Once the bus started to move, we were relieved, on an afternoon trip and a 24-hour pass you will NOT get your money's worth. 4 of us were stranded at a stop where the driver didn't see us and we were told to stand, it could have been the wrong stop who knows???? but either way, we followed the previous bus drivers instructions about where to stand and go. Who knows, but after trying to chat with someone and call someone nothing was resolved. If you don't get off the bus maybe, but this was a terrible waste of a day in LA and we can't get our time back and we are fighting to get our money back now. And let me tell you about their 24-hour pass, its also worthless because the bus stop running at 3:30pm on one route, 4:45pm on another 6pm on the last... (Approximately)... 24 hours means that you can use it the next day from the time you checked in?! why? so I can get stranded again? Thankfully, you can pay an uber driver to pick you up and pay them extra to drive where ever you want to go. This truly was a horrible experience, they need an app... and app that lets the driver know when there is a family standing and waiting in the hot sun.

Not worth it
Renae_R
, Jul 2022
Wasted our money (which was a lot for a family of 4!) as we didn’t even use the tickets. Found it very hard to download a map to know where to even start! The vendor website is clunky and not user friendly.

Need to mark bus stops
Julia_R
, Jul 2022
We tried to get on in Beverly Hills and it was very hard to determine if we were actually at the bus stop. An app showing a map with the stops and your current position would make this a much better experience. It took us 2.5 hours to actually get on the bus after missing several from being in the wrong location. Also recommend having gps tracking on the buses so you will know where the bus is in route on the app.

Excellent tour

This was an excellent hop-on hop-off tour. I have been on many of them in various cities, and I can truly say that this is one of the best. The explanations are very good and the tour hits all of the major attractions. So it’s possible to get lots of great photos.

Great for first time visitors that want to experience the LA experience. Recommend bring water and having a plan before you get on and ask the workers plenty of questions.

Best way to see most of the sights in a short period of time. Wish we had more time to get off to explore the sights. We did this on a Monday and a lot of places were closed.

Hop on hop off tour Los Angeles

I booked the 48 hours tour and got to visit all three routes (Hollywood, downtown LA and Santa Monica). Very practical tour to visit Los Angeles, you can hop on and hop off whenever you want at your own rhythm.

DON’T BOOK FROM HERE !
Marshelly_B
, May 2022
if you are a tourist like me, do not ever book this tour in viator. We were given incorrect bus schedule on our voucher which we downloaded and relied on because we anticipated that we might not get a sim card right away to access the internet. The whole experience with this tour was a hassle so I recommend that you do not book this here. We had to ask a bystander to borrow their phone and call the bus company.

5 STARS FOR HOP ON HOP OFF LA LA LAND
Ernest_J
, Mar 2022
Love to be able to see soooooooo much and get on and off where we want. We really get a good idea of the city we are visiting. The drivers were very friendly and nice. We would occasionally take an UBER to further way destinations by hopping off the closest stop. Just a suggestion. We visit the Griffith observatory by getting an uber in Rodeo Drive. LOVE HOP ON HOP OFF!!

Diane_M

Needed more narration to make the tour more interesting. Lots of silence in narration that left us looking around at traffic. Or maybe the area is not that interesting compared to many other hop on tours I have taken like Hong Kong, NYC, Washington DC, Barcelona, Paris, and London.

Don’t waste your money, zero stars

Booked the starline hop on hop off for a trip in Hollywood and Santa Monica. I only had one day in LA for sight-seeing do I wanted to see as much as possible. I was told by phone operator where my closes stop was and waited for one hour and 20 minutes for the bus to arrive. There was no shade or seating at stop. When bus finally arrived the driver scanned my QR code and said I was on the wrong bus and go get off. I got off the bus and a different tour company pulled up, I got on their bus and they scanned my QR code and said had first bus was the bus I needed and it would be back in an hour. Which would have been 1 pm and the buses stop at 4 pm. So I got no value for the ticket because it was too hot to wait another hour in direct sunlight for one or two stops before the buses stopped for the day. I have used this service in multiple foreign countries and have never had an issue. Complete waste of time and money. Metro was free and saw more of downtown LA than standing at one stop for an hour and paying $60 fir the privilege of waiting for a bus. Very dissatisfied. Asked for a refund and never received response.

Not worth the money...
Roxanne_G
, Nov 2021
Not worth the money spent, the drivers were not to friendly or helping with info on times. The add says it's 24 hrs however it's only from 11 am to 430, it takes them a long time to get you to a location,, then they leave you wherever you are. I had end up taking FREE public transportation after the driver said the last stop was in Hollywood and my room was in Venice! It's not worth it I wouldn't recommend it to anyone if you plan on getting off.
