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

Our party of 6 had a 8 hour tour of LA with Kevin as our guide and it was excellent. Kevin was a very helpful, friendly, informative guide and we saw so much. It was certainly value for money and we have many happy memories which we will treasure for ever. We hope to be able to go back to... More

We wanted to see all the sights of LA without the hassle of driving and parking. LA insider tours was perfect. For about the price of a bigger tour company, our family of 5 had a customized tour. Our tour guide, Kevin, was well informed. We were in a minivan and each of us had a window seat (husband sat... More

Family of six (4 chidren ages 13-18) had a great tour led by Scott. Tour went longer than planned to accomodate our interest in certain sites. Very nice to be able to customize tour for yourself. Only downside was it can be difficult to view all of the sites (esp. the homes) from the back seat of the van. But... More

We had a great tour of LA with Scott. My family (2 teenage girls and a son) spent the whole day touring LA for the first time. Scott was very accommodating and knew exactly where to go and how to keep everyone engaged. Everything was perfect, on time and as promised. Make sure you ask for Scott as our guide.

We took a modified Tween & Teen tour with Kevin on 3/19/14. We were late getting to our hotel due to traffic from the airport, but Kevin was so kind & courteous when we finally arrived. He rearranged things to accommodate us. He really paid attention to our conversation & took us to stars' homes we mentioned. It was our... More

Scott gave us -- two teenagers and one dad -- a terrific 4 hour tour of Hollywood, the hills, and Santa Monica. We learned a lot. And Scott was an excellent, well-informed guide -- not to mention, just an all-around nice guy to hang out with. This tour is a great choice if you've got limited time, but want to... More

Our family of 4 (two daughters 18 and 15) were extremely satisfied with our tour with Vanessa. She tailored our tour toward our daughters and only showed us the things we wanted to see. It was great. Vanessa was very personable and friendly. We've already recommended this tour to other friends. Highly recommended.

My nephew, aged 20, was visiting from the UK and he was always fascinated by "Hollywood Celebrities" I decided to book this tour that would keep a younger person from getting bored.. Vanessa was the perfect choice as she was extremely informative and very much related to younger people and knew the "Younger Hollywood Scene" Prior to trip, my nephew... More

We had a great tour with our tour guide Vanessa. My whole family of 5 including my kids ages 14, 11 and 9 all loved it. They were doubting how fun it would be to be on a tour for 8 hours, but they really enjoyed the day. We had our own private van without having to worry about parking.... More

A family of 5 Australians took the teens and tweens tour on the 12th October 2013. We only had a 24 hour stopover in LA so decided to take a tour to get the most out of the time. This would probably be our last trip to LA and I wanted the kids to be able to see all the... More
