Hi Marie M, We are sadden by most recent experience on the Grand City Tour. We never want our guest to feel that they need to feel as though the tour is a routine. We strive to be as patient and thorough with our guest and of the tours. On this tour that you had embarked on are two washroom breaks one is located at the Griffith Park Observatory (Next to the drop off and pick up point), The other washroom break is in Beverly Hills. (Several cafes, and public facilities). We also have a washroom which is located inside our office located at the Hollywood Walk of Fame. However, We will use your suggestion and will clearly inform all guests on where the washrooms are located at each stop. Thank you for your time in sharing this with us. Regards, Alex C

Thank you Heidi, Really appreciate your positive narrative regarding your recent experience on our A2 Tour. We wish that we could have seen the rabbit on a leash, Not sure how we could describe this any better then you have here. Every zip code within the LA County has it's own natural and monetary wealth that makes our city rich with history. We are fortunate to be in the position to showcase this for our visiting guests such as yourselves. We hope that your trip to Tahiti was and is only how we could possibly imagine it Tahiti to be - Relaxing :-) Wish you and your family safe travels and look forward on a future visit from you. All the best, Alex C LA City Tours
