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. « less

I booked this tour on line from Australia and was extremely happy with the excellent service we received. Eric our private guide was such a character and kept us all so entertained, even our 13 year old daughter with his antics and unique way of sharing L.A. This is the only way to experience L.A were they can tailor the... More

Nothing like having 12 hours to kill between checkout and your plane leaving LAX to head home, but this tour was a perfect way fill time to bring to an end our time travelling the US. I really appreciated Steve's hands on way he runs this business. Customising the tour and nothing too much trouble and went out of his... More

Eric took us on a wonderful tour of LA with a brilliant local insight. Picked us up in lovely car in Anaheim and zipped us downtown, filling us in on the local "scene" on the way. Eric was constantly on the look out for celebrities & kids were well amused with his antics of briefly following a cool car and... More

My wife and kick started our US honeymoon with this tour. We were greeted at the airport by the very friendly Eric. We picked our own tour via an email to Lindsay who was very helpful coming back with a package. I booked it, received confirmation and a personalized email from Lindsay confirming the details. The tour was nothing short... More

We had 5 hours to kill before our flight home and wanted a taste of LA, so I booked this tour before I left U.K. Rivers picked us up bang on time at the car rental office and proceeded to give us a brilliant insight into this huge city. He took us to places we would never have found on... More

I scheduled a tour through LA Insider Tours in September. The process was very smooth, easy and straight forward. The owner, Steve, was very responsive and flexible. I had a last minute request to change the tour to a half an hour later. Steve accommodated me without any charge, which I really appreciated. Our tour went great. Amanda showed us... More

We were looking for an LA tour while visiting family in Aug. I did quite a bit of research looking for a tour that could fit in as much of LA as possible in 4 hours. I found LA Insider Tours and checked Trip Advisor's reviews as well. We were not disappointed! There were 7 of us so we ended... More

We spent 12 days in Los Angeles in August/September and experienced two fantastic days out with Kevin from LA insider. As a travel agent from New Zealand I encounter many clients wanting to go to L.A and experience the beach and the theme parks. After sending a few clients on tours and having them come back raving I wanted to... More

We had a great overview of LA with LA Insider Tours. The upscale unmarked 7 passenger van driven by our guide Eric was right on time. Our group customized the tour somewhat and Eric was very flexible with that. The best part was not having to drive ourselves in the LA traffic and seeing things in 1/4 the time we... More
