Tours Operating Daily!

Dear Customers,

Our Los Angeles bus tours are operating daily! There are several service amendments currently in place - please see below:

  • Stop #8 (LACMA / La Brea Tarpits) on our Hollywood Loop (Red Route) is closed on Saturdays and Sundays until further notice due to construction work. Please use Stop #9 (Farmers Market / The Grove) located on 110 S. Fairfax Avenue (outside Farmer's Market parking lot) on Saturdays and Sundays
  • Our service will be partially curtailed on Sunday March 19th, 2023, due to road closures that will be in place for the Los Angeles Marathon. The Beach Loop (Blue Route) will be completely suspended, and the Hollywood Loop (Red Route) will only be in operation between 12:00pm–6:00pm.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience these amendments may cause. If you have any queries, please don't hesitate to speak with our customer service team via Live Chat (red button at bottom right of screen, or sending your query or comment via our Contact Us Form.

Warm regards,

The Big Bus Tours Los Angeles Team.
