We provide 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

With only a day in Los Angeles we decided to book this tour. Kevin was fantastic especially when he took my teenager to a comic book store. He also made sure I got to see Marilyn Monroe's grave, which we would have never found on our own. He got us close to places such as the Hollywood sign. The Farmer's... More

There is no other way to see everything that interests you in LA without the wonderful knowledge of a tour guide. Kevin picked us up at our hotel and off we went. He was able to engage our two quiet teenage daughters in conversation, as he knew everything about movies and books that they had an interest in. We were... More

Having returned from a 3 week west coast adventure I can feedback that this trip was worth the money and was a great way to spend a day. We booked a a 6hr tour ( in reality 7) and Kevin engaged us throughout the trip. Great insider knowledge for some great pictures avoiding then tourist masses. We did the usual... More

We only had a day in L.A. and booked with L.A. Insider tours. I didn't want to deal with traffic and I didn't know my way around town. Lilly picked us up at our hotel right on time at 10 A.M. in a brand new Sienna Van. We had such a blast! My daughter asked her if she could take... More

You can obviously plan your itinerary yourself no matter where your travels take you, but with limited time and resources, it doesn't hurt to turn to the experts. And that's exactly what a private tour will get you, someone who knows where to go, at what time to avoid spending hours in traffic, who will take you where you'd like... More

We booked a tour with LA insiders on our recent holiday to California, for our family of 6. I was unsure about booking a tour of LA as several friends had said that they hadn't been impressed with LA when they visited, all I can say is they should have booked with LA insider tours. We had a blast! Rivers... More

As part of our trip to California we had only scheduled one full day in LA and booked LA insider tours to maximise what we could see. Our guide, Rivers Langley, arrived early to collect us from our hotel lobby in a clean, comfortable car complete with a cooler filled with frequently offered water or cola. Our party of two... More

After finding this company on Tripadvisor, I emailed Steve, the owner, to discuss a custom tour for myself, my husband and two daughters, ages 11 & 14. Steve promptly emailed me back with the information and we exchanged emails regarding details over the next few days prior to booking. Steve thoroughly answered all of my questions and I never felt... More

We had dealt direct with the Companies Owner Steve after being so let down on our last tour 2 years ago (Starlines). We asked a heap of questions & Steve took time to explain our options to us. We opted for the "build your own" tour as we had been to some of the spots on the generic tour before... More

We did LA in a Day with Emmanuel. We had a large group and had some special stop requests which he cheerfully accommodated while giving us history on the sights throughout the day. My only regret is that we did not do this tour on the day we arrived in LA. If we did, we could have gone back and... More
