Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

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

On our first day of a California vacation with our kids, visiting from New York, we want them to get some highlights. How are guide met us at the hotel, took us by minivan to so many great sites in one day. We could have never packed so much in ourselves. From Hollywood boulevard to seeing stars homes in the...

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

Our driver Scott picked us up at our hotel ahead of schedule. He was awesome! We had a great tour of Los Angeles. We only had one day so we tried to see as much as possible in a short time. I love that this company works with your schedule to make your tour your own. I would definitely do... More

If you are reading these letters to decide on which tour to choose, then look no further. This is an amazing experience, with excellent staff. I can recall doing a bus tour of LA a number of years ago, and that tour did not remotely compare to what we experienced with our number one guide Rivers. Our family of four,... More

We do not tend to exaggerate, but what Eric toured with us today was a first class experience, providing both knowledge and fun, and we cannot imagine it could have done better. Thanks Eric, we shall try to be back - and you'll be guide again, for sure !

We were very satisfied with your tour. Rivers was very knowledgeable and told us so many details everywhere we went, it was awesome. At first, I wasn't very interested in going to see big houses on Beverly Hills but from the beginning, Rivers made it interesting by providing all sorts of stories and details on the owners that made that...

We had family flying in from NYC and wanted to book a private tour for the ten of us. From the very first email I knew I had made the right choice. I corresponded with Lindsay for several weeks as I wanted to be sure all questions were answered in advance. Not only did she get back to me quickly,... More

I am so incredibly happy to write a review to let you know how pleased I am with our LA Insider Tour with Lily Zepeda as our guide! I am EXTREMELY picky when I critique a travel service to recommend to my clients AND to entertain my family, but this was AMAZING! Prior to our arrival, our communication with Kevin... More
