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.

We had the best All day tour we have ever experienced. Our tour guide Christina was awesome and went beyond our expectations. I find the private tours are the way to go if you have a group of people that are travelling together. She picked us up on time, asked what we wanted and we never felt rushed. Once again... More

Scott was very knowledgable and fun keeping a family of Brits entertained pointing out Simon cowell , the beckhams , and finding the "modern family" homes amongst many other things. Great tour of walk of fame , hollywood hills and lunch at farmers market. There are plenty of public tours but... More

We had a great time on the tour with Scott as our tour guide. He was on time and accommodated our request to change the order of seeing the sites. He dropped us off at the Griffith Observatory at the end of the day/tour so we could see the stars at night! He was very knowledgeable about Hollywood and was... More

On April 5, 2015 we had a private tour of Los Angeles with Scott from LA Insiders tours. The tour was great much more than I expected. Scott showed us so many stars homes and was very knowledgable about them. Scott was very friendly and courteous. I would definitely recommend a private tour with LA Insiders there is no way... More

We had a very enjoyable and relaxed 5 hours tour of LA with LA Insider Tours. Scott was just great with everything and Rose was very helpful. Tour was conducted in a new van which made it very comfortable for our young son. Communication was very good right from the start. All in all a 5 star experience. Highly recommended!

Great tour guide - good sense of fun, great knowledge of LA. Admitted to really wanting to be an actor (he is actually in shows, etc.). My 17 yo daughter and I enjoyed the tour as an easy way to see the highlights of visiting LA.

We planned a quick 3 hour tour and Kevin and Rosie did a great job of showing us A LOT of sites in very short order! 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

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.
