Enjoy morning pickup at your hotel in Long Beach, then board a comfortable Mercedes Benz tour coach to ride the 25 miles (40 km) north to Los Angeles. During the journey, view the twin ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, one of the largest ports in the country.
In downtown LA, stop first at the Los Angeles Coliseum, where many of the city's biggest concerts and sporting events take place. Then head for the Frank Gehry-designed Walt Disney Concert Hall, the distinctive building where the Los Angeles Philharmonic plays.
Stop at the shortest railway in the world, Angels Flight, a funicular that goes up Bunker Hill. On Olvera Street, get a feel for the oldest area of downtown LA, where many blockbuster films have been shot.
Head for the Hollywood Sign, perched high above the city on Mt Lee. Hang out there for 20 minutes to snap photos and enjoy the views, then head down the hill into the neighborhood itself. Spend forty minutes exploring the Dolby Theater, the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the TCL Chinese Theater.
Eat lunch (own expense) at Mel's Diner on the Sunset Strip, then peruse the luxury shops on Rodeo Drive. Contrast that with the relaxed vibe in Santa Monica and Venice Beach.
After 8 hours of exploring the City of Angels, enjoy a lift back to your hotel in Long Beach.
