Cover all of the spread-out, must-see sights of Los Angeles on this flexible hop-on hop-off bus tour. Skip the hassle of navigating the city's legendary traffic while riding in an open-top, double-decker bus, which stops at 50 locations throughout the city, including downtown LA, Hollywood, Santa Monica, and Beverly Hills. Choose between 24-, 48-, or 72-hour tickets to suit your schedule and budget.

What to Expect

Voucher in hand, arrive at Grauman's Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard, the hub for both the Red and Blue lines, to board a bus. Alternatively, hop aboard at any stop along the route; buses come by every 20 to 40 minutes.

From there, experience the sights of Los Angeles without navigating the legendary traffic or hunting for a parking spot. At any of the 50 stops along the route, hop off to explore further, and catch the next bus to proceed along the route.

While on the bus, you can choose a covered seat in the lower portion or take advantage of panoramic views from the open-top deck. Highlights from the six routes include the Walt Disney Concert Hall, Sunset Strip, Santa Monica Farmers Market, Hollywood Bowl, and Venice Boardwalk. Most tours run from 7:30am to 9pm, but may vary by line and season. Call to confirm.

Totally Confusing Company

The information is not correct. Routes have recently changed, and have been deleted, signs are still present where buses don't stop. Yes too bad tickets are non refundable, but their customer service does not reply to inquiries, so careful.

Definitely the worst I have had

I have used hop on off buses all around the world but I believe my experience in Los Angeles will mean I won’t use them again. Probably my biggest concern has been with the connections between different routes. It would surely not be difficult to...More

We were totally disappointed with the Starline Hop-On Hop-Off tour!! We planned to take a quick look of LA when we returned from a Mexico cruise on Dec 15, 2018 and we only planned to stay 1 day in LA before heading to somewhere else....More

You can buy the tickets both places - either on line or at the bus stop and on the bus as well. Don't forget to wear a hat..... it is hot on the top deck... :))

You have to get off at the numbers. They are in good locations to get to most things. And found it easy to change lines where a stop was for 2 different routes. We had a 2 day ticket and found Sunday was a good day to head... More

Doug A and Steve G gave excellent answers to you question. The only other comment is that sometimes there can be a long wait for a connecting bus, so need to have a well planned day.
