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

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

My family and I had a couple of days in Anaheim at the end of our west coast road trip at the start of July so I booked a day trip of LA after reading the reviews on here. Kevin arrived at our hotel right on time in the morning and ran through everything we wanted to do, even detouring... More

We booked an 8h private tour in LA through those guys based on their good reviews here. We are from the Middle East and were visiting different cities in the US in the past month of August. It was myself, my husband and my 6 years old daughter. We started our trip around 1.30pm immediately after we arrived LA driving... More

Our family simply could not have been more delighted with our LA Insider tour! We saw lots of interesting things that day, but the standouts were the lobby of the Roosevelt Hotel, the Kodak Theater, lunch at the Farmers Market, La Brea Tar Pits (in the middle of the city!), the Sprinkles cupcake ATM, and the great little perch that...

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
