LAX Layover Guided Tour Tips

Pickup/Dropoff: Tour providers usually pick up and drop off outside the terminals at LAX. Details will be provided by the tour company.
Luggage: You can (usually) bring your luggage with you on the tour van, if needed. Be sure to confirm with the tour provider if you need this option.
Time estimate: Suitable for a layover of around 6 hours or longer. Your flight needs to arrive about an hour before the tour time, and depart an hour after the tour dropoff. International flights will require additional time to go through customs.
