The maiden voyage of the TMZ Hollywood Tour set sail today and right off the bat they caught a BIG ONE ... spotting Diddy roaming the streets of Beverly Hills!
It went down on Rodeo Drive just minutes ago. The bus tour was cruising along ... when they saw Diddy out shopping. So our fearless leader, Harvey Levin, jumped out of the bus and ran to catch up with him.
Turns out Diddy isn't just a fan of Harvey's work on TMZ ... he's a fan of his singing, too! Ok, he didn't actually hear HL's "My Way," .... he heard about it. But still!
