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.

We had a great experience with this company. We booked online and they were quick to respond to all questions, and very open to customizing the tour for us. Our guide, Scott, was really nice, very knowledgeable and made it a great LA experience!

When booking on-line, I told these people I had two 15 yr old girls I needed to impress. I listed some things we wanted to see including the American Horror Story Murder House, Little Toyko, and Hollywood Walk of Fame. We ended up with the best tour guide ever (Rivers) who figured out quickly what we were into and showed... More

We did the All LA in a day tour. The Tour is well thought out and our guide was very knowledgable. Happy to accommodate any add on requests to the tour if possible , we asked to see the Hollywood Bowl and was able to gain access despite them setting up for a concert. They take you to a little...

Me and a buddy took the LA Insider tour on Aug. 5th, 2016. Our tour guide, who was Kevin, took us all over Hollywood and Beverly Hills. He is an EXCELLENT tour guide, by the way! He took us to a location in the Hollywood Hills where there is a hiking trail, so that we could get an up close... More

I recently visited Los Angeles with my husband, two teenage children, and my parents. It was difficult to accommodate three generations, but Robin was successful - it was like visiting a long-lost relative! She related well to my teenagers and they enjoyed talking to her. My daughter had a long list of things she wanted to see and Robin was... More

Were picked up at the Universal Sheraton by Rivers, a fun, friendly and very informative gentleman who is also a standup comedian. Truly hope to see that side of his world sometime soon! We rode in a clean comfortable Toyota Minivan, which was stocked with waters, sprites and cokes. Wear comfortable flat shoes, suitable for sand and sidewalks, and be... More

We only had one full day in LA at a start of a road trip - we wanted to make the most of it and saw this company on TA and in talking to them (email and phone) we agreed that this would be the best way to see as much as we could We were not disappointed! Picked up... More

My family wasn't into the stars' homes and such, but wanted to see different sites in LA. LA Insider Tours did a great job customizing a tour that worked for us. Adam was a great tour guide who provided fun stories along the way and even made some impromptu stops along the way based on our interests - such as... More

We had a great one day tour with Robin! She was very nice and knowledgable! Couple things: in hindsight, I would have liked to speak with her before day began. We had tickets to Angel's game that same night and traffic in LA was horrible! We had to rush through our last stop to get back on the road to... 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.
