Anne really gave me the white glove treatment. I had some time before my conference started in LA and I wanted to see what the city had to offer. I didn't want to do a group tour and I was looking for something different. I heard about Anne through a referral and I took a chance, and she took a... More

We had never been to Los Angeles before, wanted in-site to the best places to visit and things to see and do, but dislike the cliche tour buses, so we decided to hire Anne after exchanging e-mails and reading reviews, it seemed like the perfect option for us. Anne picked us up promptly at our hotel as arranged, and took... More

Our family of five had been to Los Angeles before, but our experience was never like this one! Rather than the impersonal and generic bus tour, Anne took us on an "up close and personal" tour of the city and its surrounding areas. She responded to the requests of our teenage children by showing us the homes of some of... More

Anne was a great tour guide. Husband and I and our eight year old had a day in LA and we didn't want to take one of the big tour buses. She picked us up at our hotel promptly and we had a wonderful 3 1/2 hours with her. She was very patient with our son, who talks constantly and... More

Although I have lived in Los Angeles for many years (I won't say how many) I had never before seen the Bradbury building. Wow! Had it not been for my tour with Take My Mother Please, I may never have seen it. Take My Mother Please took us on a relaxed architectural tour of downtown Los Angeles and I must... More

First of all, how can you NOT love the name of this private tour company?! I was drawn to it instantly when trying to decide how best to "do LA" for the first time with my wife and 14-year-old son as part of a weeklong trip to Southern California from Rochester, NY. So much to do, so little time...and no... More

My niece Veronica and her classmate Georgina were home for Christmas break from the University of Evansville. It was Georgina's first time to California (she is from England). She is a theater major and she had a list of places she wanted to go!!! So Anne designed a tour to cover them all! I am a native Californian and knew... More

I have traveled to Europe three times with Take My Mother Please and have thoroughly enjoyed each unique trip. The sightseeing is always enhanced by special local activities and gourmet dining experiences. In Tuscany, a harpsicord and violin recital at an old church, a visit to the studio of an atelier of fashion and lunch at a wine and farm... More

I've now toured with Anne four different times, and the theme of each one (in my mind, at least) has been that there are secrets about our town that an Anne Block tour reveals with the delight of a child on Christmas morning. Whether it's the Watts Towers or the Bradbury Building / Grand Central Market or an architecture tour... More
