Thank you so much. Jan/Gogo was amazing! He took our parents, 84 and 76 on a day tour of Los Angeles while they were on a stop over at LAX. He collected them and dropped them off at LAX. They had the most wonderful time and Gogo looked after them so wonderfully. He was great at communicating before the tour and even sent a photo to me after. We can't wait to book him again! Thank you so so very much!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Your parents were such a joy. Great conversation. Hope they have a great time in Australia JAN

We were extremely pleased with our Junior Personal Tour of LA. Our tour guide Jan did an outstanding job and was the reason for a successful tour. Jan was so knowledgeable about LA and provided us with a unique insight to each and every phase of the tour. Because of Jan, our tour of LA ranks as the best tour we have ever experienced. Will highly recommend this tour to all who visit LA.

Jo WilliamsUnited Kingdom
We were only in LA for 2 days and were with Jan for a day. We truly got a feel for the city, saw all the sights we wanted to but also a lot of areas we didn't know about. This along with a lot of local history and stories meant we felt we had spent quality time rather than wasting time getting to tourist traps.
Gerald PhilsonLakelland, FL, United States
Jon Patrick was a very knowledgeable guide and showed us a lot of LA in a very limited time. Our stop at the Chinese Theatre was terrific, as well as going through the Hollywood Hills. I was a little disapoint4ed in doing the tour in a 2 door sedan as the back seat was a little crowded and I could not see or take pictures of all that I wanted.
Donald AllenUnited States
Jan was excellent. His knowledge of LA, the movie industry, and the beaches made this a very informative and interesting tour. Jan was so easy to work with, I recommend him for anyone. Our group included senior citizens with mobility limitations and Jan's tour made excellent accommodations for our group.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your wonderful words. Glad you had a great time, and again thank you so much for your generosity. JAN
Jan was an outstanding tour guide. His historical knowledge of L.A. is very complete. From geography, to human history to the entertainment scene, he knew everything and knew how to get around the city efficiently. He was very friendly to my students and captured their attention with his enthusiasm and story-telling. I would highly recommend Jan as a school group guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David, Thank you for such a wonderful review. Glad that students enjoyed themselves. Yours, JAN

My wife and I were 1st time visitors to LA and spent our first day in the city with Jan.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your support
Jan had a great depth of knowledge, provided fantastic history of LA and each area within it. He knew his way around very well. Jan is very personable and It was great to feel like a friend was showing us around rather than a manufactured tour. Great for a family when you need to adapt to the needs of the kids and you have the car to yourself. Great value for money compared with other private tours and I can't imagine getting a better tour. I would highly recommend Jan to friends.

Wow what a great experience! I had a long layover at LAX and decided to book this very spur of the moment....so glad I did. Jan is a wonderful guide and a real gentleman - he has a wealth of knowledge about LA, and will delight you with his stories and anecdotes. It was completely personalised and nothing was too much trouble...he even spent an extra hour with me before taking me back to my terminal at LAX. If you have some spare time and want to see LA with a real pro I would highly recommend Jan! John

Dean SlyeUnited States
Robin in the office booked this tour for us totally last minute and found us a guide within an hour which was amazing. Thank you to the office for making this happen. What was best about the experience was the tour. Our guide was Jan who was raised here and completely made our day. He showed us old school LA that you would never see on a tour bus. More importantly...just a great person. His historical knowledge and his kind demeanor was worth more than what we paid for. Thank you Jan! See you again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dean, Thank you so much. I hoped you enjoyed your breakfast at Killers. Did you feel the spirit of "The Class of '71"? We had our high school graduation breakfast there when it was the Lobster House! Glad you enjoyed the Marina. Hope to see you again. Yours, JAN

I cannot begin to thank Jan Patrick enough for his informative, relaxing, and most enjoyable tour. Although a couple of places we wanted to visit were unexpectedly closed, Jan Patrick went out of his way to make sure we saw plenty, and he went above and beyond to be sure we got MORE than our money's worth!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ed, Thanks so much for your kind words. Enjoyed seeing the final resting places of many of the stars that we laughed about. Hope to see you again. JAN

Such an interesting tour, we saw everything we wanted to see and learnt about LA's young but interesting history. Having just flown 20 hours, Jan was very understanding and made the tour easy-going. He even stopped at a supermarket so we could buy groceries on the way to the hotel which was very helpful! Thanks so much!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Charissa, Glad you had a wonderful time, even though you were pooped! Hope you had a great time at Disneyland also, and the rest of Southern California. Good luck with your schooling. Say hello to New Zealand for me.

The tour meant to be short, but Jan has made it count! It was one of the best days in my life! Seeing the places I always wanted to, and hearing the stories of them from such a knowledgeable guide was just excellent! Jan knows the city really well and we did not spend time in the traffic at all! Also, Jan has been very kind and spent some extra time with me showing more places than I envisaged, just to make sure I see the best out of LA - THANK YOU Jan, I hope to see you again! I wish you all the best!

On August 16, 2013, Jan gave my group of seniors a fantastic tour of LA. When he first met the group, he immediately broke the ice and made everyone feel like he was a long familiar friend. He was flexible and accommodating with our schedule. He was on time and customized the tour to fit our needs. If you need a tour guide in LA, Jan is the man. Ron Lucas

Jan Patrick had personalized our tour for the age group (16-18 year old sports group). It was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. He is very personable and very knowledgeable on the area and welcomed questions from the group. We saw and learned lots and left with a better understanding of the LA area. Jan Patrick was very punctual and phoned at the exact set time to phone. I would highly recommend Jan Patrick for your local tour guide of the LA area!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Cathy, Thanks so much for your wonderful comments. I hope the boys enjoyed the "sights" of Venice, and that none of them got sunburned! Good luck in all your future hockey games. Again thanks for your generosity. Yours, JAN

Julian RiversPompano Beach, FL, United States
I want to thank Jan for a memorable experience he's shown to my partner and I. He very friendly,funny and personable. Our tour started immediately as we left the LAX Airport and we truly enjoyed our LA tour. Jan, was very knowledgeable and made our tour experience personable. Our private tour was tailored to what we wanted to see such as: USC Campus, Beverly Hills and W Hollywood just to name a few. In short, our tour was the highlight of our 5 day Las Vegas vacation. We'll have do it again. Thanks Jan!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the kind words. Looking forward to seeing you again.
We had a more than perfect tour. Jan showed us off-the-beaten-path locations and told us so many interesting details which one probably wouldn't hear on any regular bus tour. We had a great time! Thanks Jan!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Monika, Thanks for the kind words. I try my best, and it is always wonderful to know that people appreciate it. You and Alex are lovely people, and I hope all your future travels exceed your dreams. JAN

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Val, Thanks for the wonderful comments. I really enjoyed meeting you and Ray. Please tell him to have a "B" on me, and to you, I say "breaker, breaker." Yours, JAN
We had a wonderful time with Jan. He is a fountain of information about Los Angeles history and certainly knows his way around the traffic. He made sure we got to all the spots on our wish list but added a few bonus surprises as well. I would highly recommend Jan to anyone visiting Los Angeles and will be sure to contact him if we visit again sometime in the future.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the comments. I'm glad we could spend some time together. Hope to see you again in the future. JAN GONET
