          The Easy & Stress-Free Way to See LA - and you can CUSTOMIZE it!
          We did a private half-day tour of LA highlights. When I booked the tour, I was able customize the itinerary so that it included things I thought my kids would most want to see. But then on the day of the tour our awesome guide Rivers was able to modify it on the spot to take us even more places we wanted to go. He realized my kids were into sports and quickly changed direction to take us to the former Staples center so my kids could see it & the statues of the athletes. My son is interested in UCLA so we spent some time walking the campus. We also did some of the more standard sites like Hollywood sign, walk of fame, rodeo drive and melrose murals. Rivers really made sure we go the most out of our time on the tour. It was a great stress-free way to see LA. Highly recommend!

          VIP Tour of LA!!
          The tour of Los Angeles exceeded our family’s expectations, offering a captivating blend of iconic landmarks and hidden gems. From the glamour of Hollywood to the vibrant culture of Venice Beach, every stop was a photo-worthy moment. Our knowledgeable guide Darnell with ingenious humor, shared fascinating stories and pictures making the city’s rich history come alive. A highlight was exploring the farmers market when we had lunch. Also the Hollywood sign providing breathtaking views from a secret spot. Overall, an unforgettable experience that showcased the diverse charm of Los Angeles.

          Great private tour of customized 1/2 day tour
          We were looking for a service to give a tour of LA as well as pick us up at the Carnival cruise line dock. We were able to customize the tour to our wants. Rivers, our driver, was knowledgeable, informative and made us feel right at home. He was great! We felt the money was well spent.

          Rivers was a very engaging guide who had lots of great stories, knew interesting tidbits of history, and had off the beaten path places to park and walk that weren't crowded. We'd highly recommend We Love LA and Rivers!

          Great Experience
          I did the booking process with Carlos who was very accomodating and easy to communicate with. Our party of 5 did the full day private tour and our guide was Rivers. He was a very fun guy and used his experience to navigate us around to avoid wasted time in traffic jams. Rivers also knew the best spot to get those great keepsake photographs. I would definitely recommend this company and tour to anyone interested,

          Best way to see LA
          We did the full day We love LA tour today and it was amazing and worth every dollar. Rivers was our tour guide and he was incredibly knowledgeable and just perfect. We are a family of 6 with 4 boys ages ranging from 6-14 and they all had a great time. I can't recommend this tour enough. And I hope everyone is lucky enough to get Rivers as their guide!!!

        From the moment we started working with Mark to develop our custom tour, we were impressed. They were flexible in adding our requested stops to their usual ones. Our driver, Rivers, was knowledgeable and friendly, offering a wonderful balance between chatting and letting us discover on our own. The car was comfortable and clean. There were only two of us, and the tour does cost more than some of the basic ones you see online, but it was really worth it.

        My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful full day private tour of Los Angeles with Rivers Langley. We are local to the area, but had never taken a highlights tour of the city. We scheduled a pickup from our home at 9:00 am. The day ended at around 5:30 pm. This tour gave us an opportunity to visit several important sites (Hollywood sign, Beverly Hills, the Grove, Santa Monica and Venice Beaches, etc.), and we learned a great deal. We now have a better appreciation for LA and will return in the upcoming weeks to some of our favorite areas. Rivers was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. He studied history in college and is a professional comedian. It was a pleasure spending the day with him. I highly recommend this tour, both for visitors and locals.

        My group of 4 was taking a cruise out of LA and decided to spend a couple of days in LA since we had not been there before. After researching tour companies, I decided on LA Tours. The customer service was phenomenal beginning with my initial contact with Mark. He was very responsive and offered ideas on where to stay and what to do.
        This was truly a custom tour geared to what we wanted to see. Since we had a SOFI stadium tour at the end of the day, our tour guide, Rivers, dropped us off there rather than at the pickup point.
        I had asked specifically for Rivers based on the reviews, and he did not disappoint. When I asked my group which was their favorite tour guide out of LA and our cruise ports, it was no contest. Rivers won hands down.
        You can't go wrong with LA Tours!!!

        After a 4 hour flight, was made to feel very relaxed and welcomed on our tour. Rivers is the perfect tour guide full of more information than any I ever had. My wife left her glasses in the van after the tour and Rivers took the time to mail them back home to Ohio. Could not say enough good things about this company. Flawless execution of promised tour. Thanks so much.

        Full day private tour - we started out with the Hollywood sign, then Hollywood Walk of Fame, Dolby Theater, Chinese Theater (they were actually setting up for the Oscars!) lunch at Original Farmers Market, shopping at the Grove, followed by photo ops in Beverly Hills, Rodeo Drive and drive by of famous houses in Bel Air. It was an amazing day. Rivers was our guide and he was great providing the *best* photo ops for the teens and lots of history and trivia for the adults. Super easy communication, we could spend as long or as little at a stop and text Rivers and he would be right there. Rivers had great recommendations and kept us moving from spot to spot with such ease that a 10-5 tour went by so quickly. If you are vacationing in LA and want to see the highlights in a day, book this tour!!! (And request Rivers).

        This tour was the highlight of our trip to LA. The company is great to work with from beginning to end. I have to say what made it better than the rest of any tours I have ever been was our guide Rivers”. From the minute he arrived my grandson (11)bonded with him and the rest of the day only got better. We asked to go a couple places not on our itinerary and he made that happen. My son had a stomach issue and he knew all the best bathrooms!! He could relate to all of us ranging in age from 11 to 64. Needless to say he made our day and exceeded our expectations for the day! If you read this look no further because this is a great tour for all ages and interests. The flexibility was my number one requirement and we got it all!

        Great tour of LA. Our tour guide Rivers kept us entertained all day as he is an aspiring comedian. Best view of the Hollywood sign. Doing the private tour was the best thing we did. No big bus or waiting for a lot of people. Also very affordable!

        This day was the highlight of our trip and we can’t stop talking about it to others! Rivers was a perfect host - professional, knowledgeable, a great driver, patient, and flexible! We stayed outside of the pick up area, but made our way to the Santa Monica Pier to have a breakfast sandwich, walk the pier, and meet up with Rivers.

        We requested a detour to The Griffith Observatory/Park, and believe this would be an outstanding addition to the usual tour! Quite amazing views of the city and a beautiful way to see the overall landscape of SoCal and the cityscape of LA. Rivers proceeded to drive us through the highlights of LA. Our favorites were the Griffith Observatory and drive through the park, the drive on Mullholland Drive to see the Hollywood sign, Whiskey a Go Go, our Farmers Market lunch, and the Grauman’s Chinese Theater/Dolby Theater area/Hollywood area. Collectively, everything made for the perfect day!
