Driver and tour guide was Joe. Very knowledgeable about LA and road systems. Safe driver. Good personality who gave clear instructions at stops, providing a detailed map at each stop of where the bus would be, what time and local highlights.
I was collected an hour before start of the tour and dropped off 90 minutes after the tour. First on and last off. 20 seater bus approx which was full. Not ideal but as I was staying near LAX I can understand the logistics of collections and drop-offs.
The bus was very clean and new but a poorly designed bulkhead made views from the first few rows a bit restricted.
Prominent sign on entry: "Suggested Tips". $20 Super. $15 Great. $10 good. In brackets to make it crystal clear 'per guest'. Oh no. Didn't like that.
Stops were ok. Venice Beach a bit scruffy. My highlight ( as I had visited all the stops before apart from the observatory) was Griffith Observatory but was very disappointed that the time here to see the commanding views of LA and the Hollywood sign was only 20 minutes. Not sure if this was down to by-laws but it was far too short and rushed.
A 'good' trip hence my generous tip of $10.

Full day out with lots to see. One of the best trips I've been on. Would highly recommend if you're only in LA for a short trip.

My husband and I did this tour and thought it was a great way to see LA in one day. It was packed with so much to see and we could not of done it all on our own. Recommend it for people with limited time in LA.
