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.

Perhaps my title isn't fair since this tour was without teenage boys, therefore totally different. Lily was great! I had asked for a tour of Old Hollywood since this time I went with my mother in law. Scott arrived promptly at 9 am and didn't stop talking until promptly 3 pm when he dropped us off...exactly as I requested. Thank... More

Just had an amazing day out in LA with our wonderful host Rose. She made everyone feel relaxed, it was like having a friend show you around. Our two teenagers loved the Hollywood sign and the homes of the rich and famous. I enjoyed the chilled out pace where nothing was too much bother.

Our family of four just took a 6.5 hour tour with Scott a few days ago, and it was wonderful! We spent time in Hollywood, Beverly Hills, the Canyons, Griffith Observatory, and Malibu. Scott was easy going and interesting, and we all very much enjoyed the tour and his company. Being a private, self-designed tour with pick up/drop off at... More

From our first contact with LA Insider Tours, everything was perfect. Lindsay was very responsive to my many questions and helped me line up the tour. We only had a few hours to see LA and Hollywood. We felt like we saw at all after our four hour tour with Rivers. He arrived early to pick us up at the... More

We had a fabulous day out with Kevin. He was so knowledgeable about all the attractions and places, and took us to the coolest little spot to take photos of the Hollywood sign. We custom built our tour to be a half eating and half sightseeing tour, so was a perfect mix for our family. We managed to fit in... More

My sisters and I used the LA Insider Tour on July 8 2015. We used the option to build our own tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable about LA history and the movie business. We were able to go where the tour buses are not allowed. Our guide was flexible and we made some minor changes...like walking down Rodeo Dr.... More

Just finished a fantastic 5 hour private tour with our tour guide, Scott, visiting the LA area. Scott managed to keep us all entertained with his interesting facts, humor, and knowledge of the area. I would highly recommend LA Insiders Tours to anyone. My family and I had a fun time.

An incredible day spent with touring LA with Rosie - she's lovely, warm, has impossibly hilarious back-stories and information on the city, and was fantastic with our kids. Thank you, Rosie and LA Tours, for a great day in a very comfortable car. We'll be back!

I wanted to do so many things while in Hollywood with my family yet wanted to be flexible as well so I created my own tour customizing it with LA Insiders help.

After finding this company on TripAdvisor, I contacted them and made reservations. It wasn't the cheapest tour around ($800/day) but the fact that it was private and completely tailored to our desires was completely worth it! Rosie was our tour guide and we couldn't imagine a better way to see LA. She was so friendly and open and we loved... 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.
