Why meeting us in Santa Monica is generally preferred by guests:
There is minimal downtime. The tour begins at 9:45 AM at 1400 Ocean Ave. (check in time is at 9:30 AM), Santa Monica, 90401 and we'll have you back between 5-6pm. Also, before and/or after the tour you can spend time sightseeing on the Santa Monica Third Street Promenade (a bustling street filled with street performers / bars / shops and restaurants which is only 2 blocks away from our pickup/drop off spot) and check out the world famous Santa Monica Pier (also a block away) to watch the sunset. If you are driving, there is a parking garage about a block away on 2nd street in between Santa Monica Blvd. and Arizona at 1433 2nd Street, Santa Monica, CA, 90401 with affordable all day rates ($17.50).
If you are requesting HOTEL PICKUP please read the following carefully before booking:
If we pick you up you will be part of other hotel pickups, which can be up to 2 hours before the tour and 1 hour after the tour (meaning you will be on the bus for quite some time before any sightseeing begins and after the sightseeing completes). This can make for a very long day. Additionally, you will not have time to explore Santa Monica. Hollywood drop-offs are done before returning back to Santa Monica.
