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

My family and I had a wonderful afternoon touring LA with Amanda. She picked us up promptly at the hotel and off we went. We were worried it might be a little weird driving around for so long with a total stranger, but Amanda was quite charming and conversation was easy and fun. My only regret at all was not... More

Kevin was amazing - we had the 'design your own day' and we just gave him a list of places we wanted to see and famous people's houses - off we went in an aircon car, just the 4 of us. Jam packed day inc. Hollywood sign, farmers market, stars homes, walk of fame, observatory, sunset, beverly hills, rodeo ....... More

We arrived in LA and were overwhelmed with the size of the city. We had booked an 8 hr tour with LA insiders on recommendation from a friend who had used them and are so glad that we did. We were collected from our hotel by our guide Rivers in a comfy a/c van, plenty of room for four of... More

My family, including three teens, recently took this private tour of All LA in a Day and we had a great day. Our guide was Kevin and we all thought he was terrific - a very cheerful personality with plenty of knowledge about everything...including patiently answering my husband's relentless baseball questions. The transport is very comfortable and can access areas... More

We took a 3.5 hour tour with Rivers, and it was terrific. The tour was customized to cover the things that we were interested in, and the pickup and dropoff at our hotel made it super easy. It was definitely the highlight of the trip for our kids. From the 'insider's' view of the Hollywood sign to seeing stars' homes,... More

So glad we took this private tour. Rivers was a great guide. We felt completely safe throughout the entire tour. He's a great driver, knowledgeable and friendly. He maximized our time and we got to see everything we wanted to see in 6 hours. I'm so glad we chose this tour instead of the big bus tours - saw them... More

We were spending 3 days in LA doing all the sights before moving onto San Diego, and we really wanted to see all the sights with someone knowledgeable who knows their way round. We chose the custom tour and there was myself, my husband, our adult son and 11 year old daughter. Kevin was our tour guide and Rivers came... More

My wife and I had been to LA before so the idea of being able to 'customize' a tour of the city was very appealing. Being picked up at your hotel and taking the tour alone were also very important. We wanted to get a lot done & needed someone to help us through it, but we also wanted informative,... More

Our tour began with Amanda picking us up at our hotel in a brand new van. We had no idea that we were getting ready to have the BEST tour of LA in 7 and a half hours. She was so knowledgable, personable and engaged with our 2 teenage daughters! She knew all the ins and outs! We loved that... More

Just returned from an amazing 4 weeks travelling around America. First stop - LA. Spending the day with Kevin seeing the sights was a great introduction to the local areas. We chose a custom tour and picked what we wanted to see and what we didn't. Kevin was very knowledgeable. Whenever we asked a question, he knew the answer. We... More
