Since we got our start taking skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts on fun runs to the snow-covered mountains in 1979, Gold Coast Tours has been providing clients throughout the nation with quality transportation services. We learned early on that great service begins with great people and a memorable experience, which is why we put so much effort into choosing the best people to join our team. The experience that you have when you book with Gold Coast Tours is our top priority, from the punctual, professional drivers who excel in safety and customer service, until your journey is over and you take your last steps off the bus, we aim to not only meet your needs but to exceed your expectations.

Our Traveling Accomplishments

We have been afforded the opportunity to become one of the leading choices in transportation in California for over a decade now. We started off with one bus in 1978 to have a fleet of over 50, we don't have any intentions on stopping our ever-growing company. 

Our Beginnings


John Hartley, Founder

Cruising down Beach Blvd during the summer of 1978, John Hartley was picking up all the daily beachgoers. During winter he was transporting them up Mammoth Mountain for singles trips. By 1979 Hot Dogger Tours, Inc was in full swing. Since 1979 Hot Dogger Tours, Inc dba Gold Coast Tours has been providing luxury transportation anywhere the heart desires!


 Gold Coast Tours has transformed into the frontrunner for providing ground transportation all over the United States. As a family owned and operated transportation company, we take pride in providing safe, reliable, and prompt charter bus transportation. Whether you are going skiing in Utah or wine tasting  in California, we want to give you the ideal charter bus transportation experience, because you deserve it. We are here to serve you and all of your ground transportation needs along your journey.
