Was not impressed...
By Living large in L.A Verified Reviewer from Studio city on
Cons:
Too Much Waiting Unknowalgble Staff

Comments about Smart Destinations Hop-on Hop-off Yellow Route Tour departing Santa Monica:

Like taking a city bus at 10 times the price with a lot less stops. There was not much hop on, hop off, and the only place we wanted get off (rodeo drive) there was no stop. We did however get to wait next to a generator station behind a big building for 40 minutes. Don't really know why they even offer the "yellow" tour option

Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Hop-on Hop-off Yellow Route Tour departing Santa Monica:

This is a great way to get around and see a lot without having to deal with traffic. The top had full sun but also a nice breeze. Kids really like it and I have to admit the kid in me thought it was pretty cool too.
