Jan was outstanding! Would highly recommend his tour to everyone! We got to see more and learn more in a couple of hours than most seasoned visitors. His insight and presentation, and his great personality, should make him a royal ambassador to the City of Angels! Just a delightful morning!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jane, What a wonderful, ambassadorial review! I was taken back. Glad you had a great time. Thank you so much and hope your future journeys are great. Gogo

I highly recommend taking a tour with Gogo. He is such an interesting person and knows the area like the back of his hand. We didn't have many days in Los Angeles but his tour covered everything we wanted to see. His car is clean and comfortable. He was punctual and friendly. He kept us entertained with fascinating stories about what we were seeing. This tour is the best way to see Los Angeles and surroundings in a day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Santos’s, I am so happy that you enjoyed yourselves with me. Hope the rest of your journeys please you as much. Yours Gogo

He is flexible (met us an hour and a half earlier than scheduled), time conscious (gives you enough time to relish the view, take pictures but still on schedule to visit other places), congenial (feel relax and safe around him) and dedicated to his work (didn't cut off places he passionately yearns us to see). Knows short cut to places to get a better view. Masterfully narrated LA's robust history, paramount beginnings & the fusion of vast divergence of culture, music & arts. We highly recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Quennie, your review and personal letter warmed my heart. Thank you so much Gogo

excellent guide. one of the best we have had. very kid friendly. knew his stuff, organized time well and covered a lot of ground in 6 hours. you need at least 6 hours to do a full day tour if you leave out some stuff such as farmers market, tar pits and a skyscraper view.

For me, trip number three with Jan and once again he excelled himself. We saw all the things we wanted to see plus a few additional places. What an amazing day visiting Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica and Venice Beach. Our day ended with a beautiful late lunch/early dinner at Marina del Rey and Jan kindly dropped us at the airport for our flight home. Thank you so much Jan, it was a pleasure catching up with you again. Stay safe and well.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Brenda, Thank you for the glowing response to both days. Strange time in the desert but interesting. Hope your journey home was easy and safe. Hope to see you again. Yours, Gogo

Do not hesitate to book a tour with Jan if you want a well planned, interesting and informative day. This trip was to Palm Springs and was amazing. Thank you so much Jan for a day my sister and I will remember for a long time. This was my second trip with Jan and once again I was not disappointed.

He arrived at our hotel on time, took us all around the city, including Malibu and Venice Beach, and regaled us with many stories of the areas, the movies, stars, etc. He is a lot of fun as well and we would recommend him to others.

Jan provided a fantastic day for us in LA. We only had the one day and we wanted to cram as much in as possible. He knew all the best places to go and the best secret spots to see things from... He showed us where to get the best view of the Hollywood sign. Jan also knew great places to eat and people watch which ensured we had a special day to remember in LA. When it was all over, he dropped us straight to the airport with plenty of time to make our flight home. I would highly recommend Jan.

Myself and my husband booked this tour on a stopover in LA. GoGo arrived at our hotel on time and was easy to spot with his orange vest. His knowledge of all things Hollywood was incredible and he did his upmost to get us as close to everything as he could, despite the Oscars' road closures. We stopped at the Hollywood sign, the Walk of Fame and Graumans Chinese Theater as well as driving around Beverly Hills, etc. His stories are amazing and there wasn't a question he wasn't able to answer. A great tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Helen, Had a great time with you guys. Enjoyed the conversation. Enjoy New Zealand. Thanks Jan

Experienced, friendly, knowledgeable and FUN tour guide!! I opted for my tour to be led by Jan and I was not disappointed!!! I was shown unique places with background history and tidbits of interest (and a bit of goss!) which made for a fun interesting day. I felt relaxed and safe the entire time, and Jan was more than accommodating if I wanted to stop or spend a bit more time at a sight. Highly recommend this tour and the awesome tour guide, you will not be disappointed!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your great comment. Glad the day met your expectations. SUR was an experience for both of us.

Our guide for the day was Jan, or GOGO as he likes to be called. What can I say? He was the best person we could possibly have picked, he was very well informed on the movie industry in L.A. and as he originates locally he was able to take us off the beaten track so to speak. Nothing was too much trouble and he had a nice manner about him also. Thanks GOGO for a very memorable day, you're the best.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for the great words. Glad you enjoyed the day.

An excellent tour. Jan was on time and an entertaining guide with many stories from a colourful life and knowledgeable about film industry history. We made great detours to see out of the way to see features like Marilyn's cemetery. It was car based with only a couple stops along the way including Venice beach and for lunch. Took very few photos from the car With hindsight, I might have preferred just a brief snack rather than the nice restaurant visited, just because our time in the city was so limited

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Glad you enjoyed our time together.

Myself, my two teenage sons and my sister where given a great tour by Jan of LA. Along with seeing all the major sites, Jan passed on his extensive knowledge of the areas history which gave us a perspective of how the city evolved over time. We had lunch in a iconic diner that is not on the usual tourist trail. Jan is a engaging and knowledgeable guide and I would definitely recommend him if you are looking for a tour that is out of the big tour group box.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Glad you had a good time. I enjoyed your company. JAN

Jan is a super tour guide. Enjoyed the tour and saw a lot of things and places that you could not have seen on a tour bus. If we ever get back to Los Angles will book with Jan and maybe spend two or three days touring the Los Angles area.

Jan was pleasant & easy to talk to and coordinate with. He had extensive & detailed knowledge of the area, including some uncommon fun facts. He was flexible and patient. He gave us some great suggestions (in planning emails and in person as the day went on) to help us make the most of our tour. He grew up in Los Angeles and has spent most of his life around there so knows many of the ups and downs & in and outs of how the area has grown & changed over the last 100 or so years. I'd definitely suggest Jan!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Stacey, Thank you for your wonderful words. Appreciate it

We - a family of five from Holland - only had limited time in our schedule to visit LA and decided last minute we needed a private guide to see as much as we can in a few hours. How lucky we were to find Jan Patrick. A great and enthusiastic guy. He knows a lot about the city and talks about it with an energy like you are his first customer. Very nice person, very informative and lots of fun. And in the meantime you also get some lessons in life. We had a great afternoon in LA. Thanks Jan! Dirk

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Glad you had great time. Your family made it very easy to be a guide.

We did a beach tour with Gogo, and he was simply GREAT. He was 15 min early to pick us up from our hotel and drove us to the airport as promised. He is knowledgable, professional and, at the same time, kind and caring. He made us (including my parents who do not speak English much and my daughter who is 7) feel very comfortable and tried very hard to meet our needs/wishes during the tour. If we go down to LA again, we will definitely try to do another tour with Gogo and would highly recommend his tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the wonderful endorsement.
