The LA Holiday Gets Easy-Peasy with Starline Tours; Transport plus Savings on Attraction admissions, Selfies and Sanity

May 27, 2019 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

Starline Tours, the largest and most respected tour company in Los Angeles has a suitcase full of options for families that will make enjoying Los Angeles more enjoyable.  Secure air seats now for the Winter Break and consider these recommendations for family travel to LA and Hollywood:

Headed to Disneyland:  Travelers who want to stay in LA but visit Disneyland now have the perfect solution:  The Hopper Express.  For $25 return per person, an air-conditioned motor coach efficiently transports the whole family to the main entrance point of Disneyland.  No driving, no traffic, no parking lot trams. (This is a major savings over hiring a car for the day or using a ride share, which is approximately $85 US one way.) Don’t have Park tickets?  Buy them directly from the driver and avoid Main Entrance ticket lines.  During the summer season, Starline offers a late bus to soak up all the magic happening.

Warner Bros and Universal Studio discounts:  With Starline’s Attraction Pass, travelers get transportation plus discounted admission to either Warner Bros. Studios or Universal Studios and entry or tickets to more than 20 other iconic attractions.  Price is a significant savings:  1 Day Pass is $95.00 Adults, $67 Youth 3-11. A 2 Day pass is $132 for Adults, $96.00 for Youth 3-11. The 3 Day Pass is $259 for Adults, $219 for Youth. When you consider that a single full day entry into Universal Studios starts at $129.00 for adults, this is exceptional value.

CitySightseeing Hop-On Hop-Off: It’s a tour, a suntan and a ticket to ride.  Covering three distinct routes and 2 major connectors totaling 100 miles, THIS is the way to see LA.  Tickets are for 24, 48 or 72 hours and the family rate includes 2 Adults and 3 Children under 12 (under 3 is free.)  That is a savings of $75 over individual pricing, plus there is no hassle of parking in this sprawling city.  A fully narrated tour in English and eight other languages on your personal new ear buds (yours to take with you or bring your own along) tell the history and story more accurately than a driver pointing out things here and there.  Bonus:  Board the bus at any stop and show your e-voucher.  More bonus:  use the NextBus app to know precisely when your bus is arriving.  Best of all:  Ride up top and soak in the lovely California sun, so people back home know you’ve been to LA on holiday. Note: Starline offers themed itineraries on the best way to use the Hop-On Hop-Off bus for families, shopping, spotting celebrities and LGBTQ;

Speed Date the Hollywood Sign:  Desire – to show everyone back home you were there. Deliver:  family posting pics from the best vantage point of the Hollywood sign without breaking the law.  With the commitment of just one hour, the uberesque black vehicle whisks guests up to the best spot for photos, then down to Hollywood Boulevard for a breeze through Madame Tussauds.  Yes, these are not the real stars, but trust us, in photographs, your social media following will not know the difference.  After all, you are in Hollywood…It could happen.

Los Angeles By Night:  for those who want to use the day for the beach, shop and celebrity-spot, LA by Night is the answer.  Los Angeles and surrounding cities take on a totally different vibe at night. Take this tour to see the best poppin spots at night, then book a table for the next night.  Comfortable, enclosed motor coach takes riders on a 4hr tour, taking the Griffith Observatory, Downtown Los Angeles, Farmers Market /The Grove and along Rodeo Drive and the the amazing Sunset-Boulevard showcasing billboards of everything thing that is trending in Hollywood.

The Original Movie Stars Homes Tour:    Starline inherited this tour 50 years ago when it was conceived in 1935 by showman Sid Grauman who built the Chinese Theatre.  It is still the most popular, longest running tour in Los Angeles. When stars burst onto the scene, get caught by a camera coming from spin class or buy lovely gated estates, the Movie Stars’ Homes Tour showcases it in a vehicle affectionately called “Topless with Headsets”, named for the open-top 13 passenger van. Sometimes they are practically an arm’s length away, with personal headsets to hear the tour guide without disturbing the tranquility of the exclusive neighborhoods.  (No other tour offers this privacy to celebrities, and that’s why they love Starline.)

Easy-Peasier:  Starline Tours offers hotel pick-up to more than 300 locations and has an Express Late Bus back to LAX for your Midnight flight, departing from its central Hollywood & Highland/Hollywood Boulevard location nightly at 7:00 p.m.

To arrange tickets for any of these Starline offerings, go to, 800-959-3131, or direct, 323-785-6700. Tickets are also available from major travel wholesalers, by booking online or directly through their booking portals.
