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.

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

Our group of 6 had a wonderful time with Rivers on the Teens and Tweens tour. He was lots of fun and very happy to show us some great attractions but also to take us to the sights we wanted to see. One of the best things was having the guide all to ourselves taking us to where we wanted... More

Just wanted to say this was our very first visit ever to L.A. and LA Insiders did a great job in helping us get to know all the places on our list and then some. Scott, our tour guide, is a local to Hollywood and very knowledgeable in the history and stories behind all of the places we visited. He... More

The tour guide can make or break the outing... Luckily for us we got Rivers, who was informative, easy going and put up with us!!! He catered to our needs, let us change the itinerary and took us to the places we wanted to go! The tour was a lot of fun and he even took us to less well... More

Lily was an amazing guide and was definitely a trooper, as the day we went out was raining. She got out and got wet with us to show us all the neat things along Hollywood Blvd. not to mention a few other locations where walking in the rain was involved! With just my husband and myself it was very private,... More

My family of five, including three teenage boys had limited time in LA so we decided to look into a private one day tour of Los Angeles. I contacted LA Insider Tours a couple of days before arriving to organise the tour and was very pleased they could accommodate us. Because our hotel was located in Hollywood there were sites...

Two years ago we arranged a private tour which was a complete waste of money, so we were a touch nervous arranging another. We had nothing to worry about! Our Build Your Own Tour with Rivers was exactly what we wanted - and more! We got to see many of the stars homes that our Tweens wanted to see, and... More
