one of the best hop on hop off i have been on, so many great stops all over LA! multi route in santa monica & hollywood and i heard there was a thrid route in downtown la area.
best way too get around the whole LA area, hitting all the major tourist attractions.
good price, great staff, nice double decker busses.

i would say i would like them too add more buses, so you dont have to wait 45-hour between busses.

Drivers need to be friendlier and more helpful
Aug 2021
Drivers were not friendly. I took a map/timetable. Turns out it was the wrong timetable and apparently there was a corrected printed one but the driver never bothered to hand it to me. Therefore, we ended up waiting an hour for a bus because we had the wrong time. Having said all that, it’s an easy way to see a lot of the city.

Stay away!
Jul 2021
Took the Santa Monica loop today. The audio tour was prerecorded and did not match the route. No live tour guide as in other cities. The Beverly Hills stop was 3 blocks off the main road in front of a power station and the police station. We were told this was a 30 minute stop and if we wanted to continue on the Santa Monica loop, we should exit the bus until the tour resumed. There was nothing to see in the area, closest place to get water or refreshment was 5 blocks away. Got back to the stop and the bus had left! Cannot recommend this tour !!

Not worth the money.
I’d say it was mah. Not really what I expected. While it got us up off the street view it was uncomfortable and audio was not in sync with the tour. It also was not very interesting. I was hoping for more history and consistent story telling but it was one offs and a lot of pointing out where people died. I would not recommend.

Terrible bus, don’t spend your hard earned money here
Mar 2021 • Couples
This was my first time visiting LA. Since I did not know where to go, I decided to take a “hop-on-off” bus. I have taken this type of busses in other cities and loved the experience.

Starline tours was unlike these other experiences. It was TERRIBLE. And that is an understatement. The largest issue was that the busses are ill maintained. During our time, we got off at a 2 locations and had to wait for about an hour after the scheduled arrivals. One of the drivers told us that one of the busses had broken down.

At our first bus, the narration was not working for the whole bus. So it became just like a overpriced public transportation that is always late.

The bus interior was disgusting and the seats were coming off.

Lastly, if you are coming to LA, skip these tours. Rent a car and just drive around.

Fantastic experience, highly recommend!

My sister and I enjoyed a 3 Day pass on the Hop-On Hop-Off bus. Our driver Nicole was lovely and knowledgeable and we enjoyed her commentary around the sights of the red line. We also had an excellent driver on the downtown route who let us run off and have a restroom break so we didn't have to wait for the next bus an hour later. Overall we were really happy with the service and the fantastic customer service from the staff in the ticket office, to the staff on the ground (who helped me when I'd left my ticket at the hotel, and looked me up in the system to kindly print off another ticket for me!). I would absolutely recommend this tour to fully experience the sights of sprawling Los Angeles!

Poor service, audio inconsistent, stops missed/eliminated with no notice
Mar 2020
We booked a 2-day pass intending to do the Red, Yellow and Purple Starline hop-on hop-off tours. Got on the Red close to our hotel, put in the ear buds and began listening. Audio was not in-sync with the tour, but we were able to follow along on the map in the Starlines brochure. Our plan was to ride the Red line to the Yellow, switch, and then hop off at Venice Beach. At one stop on the Red line another employee stepped, from outside into the doorway of the bus, to discuss radio problems w/our driver ... our driver literally began driving away while this person was in the open door. Once we arrived at Stop 1, the recording informed us that there may be a delay while drivers switched out or we may need to move to another bus. In any case, we would be informed if that was necessary. Since we were going to the Yellow line stop, we stayed on. As the bus started out again (same driver) we began talking between ourselves (probably louder than usual because we still had the earbuds in). The driver stopped in the middle of the traffic lane and looked back and said, "I thought everyone was off the bus." We told her we were going to the Yellow line so we stayed on. She said, "Didn't you hear the person tell everyone to get off the bus?" Well, no, we didn't. That's not what the recording said and we did not hear or see a live person (including our driver) say anything about having to vacate that bus. So, the driver pulled over to the side of the road (at a NON-stop) and told us to get off the bus. We did. What else were we going to do? Almost immediately upon getting off the Red Starline bus, a Starline employee approached us on the sidewalk wanting to sell us Starline tour tickets! Seriously? Just tell us where to get back on the next bus. Upon boarding the Red line again (another bus), we continued on to the Yellow/Red tour shared stop. The remainder of the Red line to that point was uneventful. Although the audio was still out of sync, we kept a good idea of where we were using the map.We arrived at the Yellow/Red shared point and the transfer was easy. The Yellow bus was already there and we boarded immediately. The driver announced that we'd be leaving in 6 minutes. I thought, excellent, this driver is going to keep us informed. Nope. After telling us to put our earbuds in, the driver remained silent. Unfortunately, the audio did not work at all. We looked at the other people who had been seated on this bus already and noticed that they were not even listening so we assumed that they had no audio either. We switched seats once and still no audio. We also noticed that the bus driver was not stopping at the majority of the stops on the map. Not announcing them and just driving past. Oddly she did announce one stop that was coming up, however, she just continued driving without stopping at it! We switched seats a final time because of a draft and plugged in again. Surprising, after a short time the audio started working. Because of all the missed stops, we decided to get off the first time the driver stopped near Venice Beach, to make sure that we got to visit. It was close to the beach, but not close to anything else of note. Luckily we had a plan for exploring and for lunch and we were able to walk to the places we wanted to go. When we finished, we went to the stop in front of the Tourist office. We ducked into the office to look around, chat, and ask about the timing of the Starline buses at that location.Imagine our surprise when we were informed that the Starline buses had not been stopping at the location for weeks and as a matter of fact they were not stopping at many of the stops (which had become obvious to us already) but had failed to update their maps or inform their passengers of the changes and the limited stop availability. Unacceptable. We were told that we could should probably make our way to the Santa Monica pier Starline office to confirm times and locations to catch the Yellow line back. Unacceptable.We opted to take an Uber at our expense to ensure that we wouldn't have to walk any further. We also decided not to try to finish either the Yellow or the Red tour and even though we had intended to do the Purple (Downtown LA) tour as well the next day, decided to forego it based on the poor experience we had on the other tours.Save your money. Our experience with the Starline hop-on hop-off tours was that they are inconsistent, unreliable, and frustrating. Customer service just wanted to sell, but they didn't give us the information that we truly needed to make an informed purchase. There are other better, reliable, reputable and thorough tours available. I'll take some responsibility because we obviously didn't do enough research prior to our visit or we would have chosen one of the other tour companies.

LA Traffic
Apr 2019 • Solo
LA traffic makes this bus experience not something that makes sense for a tourist. You are much better off spending money on a ride share and getting to the spots you want quicker. Due to the size of the bus it cannot take short cuts in LA backstreets forcing you into relentless traffic. You'll barely see LA in a single day if you want to get on all the loops.

Star line Tours
I bought a ticket on double decker Starline Tours at Hollywood to have a leisurely sightseeing of famous LA sights. It’s was a beautiful day and I enjoyed listening to the commentaries of each bus stop. I took the Red route then switch over to Yellow route towards Santa Monica. Then switch back to Red to get back to Hollywood.
