Description: Family Friendly Custom Tours of LA, Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Santa...
Family Friendly Custom Tours of LA, Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica. We specialize in personable, entertaining, one-on-one tour experiences showing you the real Los Angeles in private, unmarked vehicles. We pick you up directly at your hotel and return you at the end of your tour. No scrambling to get to a meeting location or waiting on a bus while the tour company goes from hotel to hotel picking up other passengers. You get to choose what you see, when you see it, and how you see it. It's a custom tour and best of all completely private -- stop for a photo op anywhere you like or just feel free to act silly with family and friends without worrying about what the other strangers on the tour will think. See the city as an LA insider with local knowledge from people who live here - it's just like having a friend in town.

They knew the backroads around the Hollywood Hills and showed us a lot of homes of both old and young stars! They were very friendly and courteous to us as well and made sure... More

This tour exceeded my expectations, Scott was fabulous, I am so glad we did this tour without the craziness of the other tours available, Scott picked us up in an air conditioned car, cold water ready and off we went, Scott was so knowledgeable about the history of LA and drove us by some really great places like Justin Timberlakes...

We had an amazing day with Lily! She picked us up at the location of our convinence, which was huge because it was myself and three young children. She asked us what we wanted to see and what was most important to us. We then made a plan and can I tell you, it was an awesome one. She stopped... More

Our day with Rivers the tour guide was incredible! He got us everywhere quickly and was extremely informative and fun to chat with. He knows his history of LA and he knows all the shortcuts! The van was air conditioned and very comfy, and the experience was well worth it. Plus, he is good at taking pictures, so we now... More

We had the most amazing day with Kevin on our All L.A. in 1 Day tour. The tour was the best way to see all the significant 'must see' as a tourist. Having your own personal tour guide, made the day so enjoyable. We were able to cover quite an expansive area and have a relaxing time. Kevin was the... More

Our all day guided tour of LA was the best part of our vacation. Thanks Lily. My family was able to see all of the highlights of LA in one day. And our well planned out tour/adventure moved us through the city without loosing the attention of my teenage boys. We were able to see so many things-we would not... More

We had a day extra in LA and decided to take the tour. We booked a private van and picked a few places to visit - Graumanns Chinese Theater and the hand-prints, the Dolby Theater, The Roosevelt Hotel, The Hollywood sign (all the way to the closest point), Venice and Santa Monica and finally the Farmers Market. Scott was very... More

We had a fantastic time with Lily. She was great to spend the day with! It felt like we were spending time with a friend instead of someone we just met. We were able to see so many things that we would not have on our own. I highly recommend this trip for anyone who wants to see different parts... More

Unfortunately we didn't feel that our experience with out private tour matched what we had paid (which is a fair amount of money). We had the privilege of having the "owner" of LA Insider Tours guide us which probably wasn't as good as it could have been as he had not guided for quite some time and was quite rusty... More

Visited Los Angeles for the first time over New Year's 2015. Specifically went with LA Insider because of the "build your own" tour. We got everything we expressed an interest in and then some. Scott picked us at our rental home and took us to all the local sights, as requested. Really happy we did the Walk of Fame with... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
