The detail about everything we saw and asked about was so informative- I read about subjects and the information I was given was exact. Even better was the understanding and kind nature of our host. My eldest daughter got travel sick and he was so understanding letting her ride in the front and trying to ease the situation. 10 out of 10. Thank you. Truly enjoyed this trip and saw so much more than we could have possibly done by ourselves. Thank you!"

* A traveler said: "Mikey was a fantastic host. Great stories, kept us moving but gave us time to get out and explore things where we wanted - e.g. Santa Monica Pier. Mikey’s experience driving many many celebrities was lots of fun to hear about. The limo is a great way to get around - much better than a tour bus for a small group of up to 6 people because we could interact and ask questions. Mikey is a wonderful host and my family would strongly recommend his limo tour. The bar on board the limo is very well stocked with champagne, spirits, wines, beers, soft drinks, juices and water. Mikey communicated well with us before we arrived in LA from Australia and he turned up 5 minutes early. Our LA experience has been great thanks to this great tour. Thanks Mikey and good luck with your tv productions. We can’t wait to see them on our screens! Paul, Kylie, Tom, Sam and Jack McNae"
