Shared 8 hours Los Angeles City Sightseeing Tour from Long Beach
It was a full day tour but we were thrilled to see so many highlights of LA, Hollywood, Venice Beach, Santa Monica, and everywhere in between.
We had a wonderful time on this tour! Our driver was SO personable and knowledgeable. While we drove from Long Beach into LA, he told us many delightful stories about the area. At lunch time, he took us to the original Mel's Diner where we had a yummy lunch including their famous malts and shakes.
