Great way to see the area!
Nancy_O

It was a great way to get around the city. We had a great time and learned a lot about the area. Some of the drivers were fantastic. Signs at the different stops would be really helpful. A sticker on your shirt would make it so easy rather than getting out your ticket after each stop.

Waited. No bus for two days. No refunds?
Cindy_D

Never got to use the experience, we waited at 3 bus stops at 3 different times and not one was the bus we were waiting for... in fact, for two days we roamed the streets of Venice and not one double decker in sight. The fact that they asked my opinion, means they have no idea my tickets were never validated: no communication between departments? and no way to get a $140 refund?

No narrative through ear buds. No info regarding what was at stops. Missed several stops. Basically we rode a bus around town with no idea of what we were seeing.

Hesitant to try this again.

The bus was very clean. Wiped handles frequently. Drivers were very nice and helpful. During Covid so very few people on it. Marked well for social distancing. The downside was. We were told we could start your anywhere and tbecaise of our location they recommended a stop that was closed due to Covid so by the time we got hold of another person to talk to or “chat” to we didn’t get started til 2 hours late and didn’t have time to do much but wait. I would have liked stops to be better marked and a person more accessible if help was needed. Was going to do it in San Francisco next week. Now not sure

tried to do both tours in a day we were told wrong start time for tours expected time at our first stop 30 mins later than expected.Waiting to long between buses and lot of time at transfer points .just missed 5pm bus from Hollywood so had to wait 70 mins for 6.30 bus to downtown only to couples so he took us to near our hotels . Summing up take the 2 day option especially if you due the downtown tour as well less of a rush.
