Wonderful tour. Got picked up at our accommodation in the morning by Johnny our driver, who was fantastic. Got to see so many sights around LA. From the Hollywood Sign, Walk of Fame and many other places, was brilliant. Then dropped off back at our hotel afterwards. Would highly recommend.

I’m a bit late on my review but I wanted to leave one for my tour guide her name is Bree she took my family and I on a tour trough the Animal Kingdom. She was amazing and super helpful with my kids. She helped me push my daughter who was in a stroller and carried my bag too. And also was holding my sons hand at some point. She took us to the best rides and attractions in the park and helped me with a fast pass for my daughter who is a amputee and made her feel extra special on her birthday that day with a birthday pin. All the staff where wishing my daughter a happy birthday it was definitely special. I have nothing bad to say about my tour guide she is truly amazing and extremely helpful. Even on my final last day in Orlando I texted her about places to eat for one good last meal and gave me some good recommendations. Thank you again Bree your truly amazing and extremely helpful my family and I where really happy with the tour ❤️❤️

The driver was very kind and accommodating for a person with a wheelchair. He always helped and ensured that the bus was parked in a safe location for the passengers to disembark, including those with special needs. He never complained about the extra work required loading and unloading the wheelchair or the extra time needed to assist the passenger to/from the bus. He was also very knowledgeable about the area and the sites he was taking us to. His driving was excellent. As a professional driver myself, I am always a little more critical of other drivers. He was safe, courteous and smooth with his driving, acceleration and stopping. I felt comfortable and safe the entire time!

Team were organised - the horses were docile, but looked like they needed a decent brush down. the views were great but the 2hr ride was so slow- would have been good to mix up the speed a bit to make it more interesting. Was itching to do a trot or canter even for 1/2 a minute! Guide was friendly and tipped as expected.

I did not actually take their shuttle. This is a review of their website and support. I booked a pick up at LAX for late night Monday, 15 July 2019. During the payment process that all showed correctly. After paying, the pick up showed as scheduled for midnight on 10 January 1970. I immediately called their support line as shown on the webpage. Their support line DID answer. That would be a point in their favor except the guy on the phone was so bad. I (admittedly was upset but not at all abusive) explained the issue. He told me it was MY fault that I had entered it wrong because the screen just takes whatever I entered. WTF?!?! Even if I did it wrong, why accuse the victim instead of addressing the issue?!?!? I called him a liar because that historical date was not even an option! He said he would cancel the reservation so I read him the code. I asked how I would receive cancellation confirmation and he just hung up. He did NOT cancel it. LIAR! Later I cancelled it from the webpage.
