An easy way to see LA, but quite unorganized

25 Sep 2010 - 28 Sep 2010

My LA explorer trip experience wasn't the best. It was a convenient way to see parts of LA without having to figure out public transport, but it wasn't well organized or run efficiently. Our tour manager couldn't find the restaurant where we were supposed to have our welcome dinner, so we spent a ridiculous amount of time walking the streets at night trying to find it. On the day we went to Disneyland, our tour manager got us there at 7:30am, dropped us off and left. We then soon found out that Disneyland didn't open until 10am. Fair to say that we were all pretty annoyed. Having to wait 2.5hrs for it to open was not good.
Kind of felt that the tour manager should have known a bit more about the tour and should have known a bit more basic information.
Our day of sight seeing in LA was probably the best day. It was an easy way to see parts of LA as the contiki bus drove us everywhere. But, we weren't given much time in each place we stopped.

I wouldn't necessarily recommend the tour. It was an easy way to see LA, but it was unorganized and not run well.
