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 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

Amanda was our guide for a Saturday afternoon spent touring around LA - the Walk of Fame, Griffith Observatory, the Hollywood sign, Farmers' Market, and all points inbetween! She was friendly, knowledgeable, interesting, and great to converse with. Bonus points as well for divulging the secret Hollywood sign lookout spot that I didn't know about despite being an Angeleno for... More

We wanted to ensure that we saw as much as possible in this small time frame so we booked a tour with LA INSIDER TOURS. Out tour guide Rivers was brilliant, couldn't rate him highly enough, he...

My 17 year old daughter and I had just a few hours to cover a lot of ground and Lily helped us do just that! We had an amazing time on our private customized tour of LA. Lily was fun and friendly, and yet very professional. Our tour was totally customized to what we were interested in seeing. The airport... More

Our travel agency had a group of 28 who were returning from Australia, New Zealand, & Fiji with 10 hours layover in LAX. Rather than let them sit at the airport, we arranged with LA Insider Tours to pick them up & tour the area. It was great, our tour leader & clients were so happy to see some "behind... More
