Private tour of LA... our way!!!!

My daughter and I spent a fabulous day with Yuri as our tour guide in LA last week.

My daughter has special needs and absolutely loves the Jonas Brothers. (even though they are no longer a band). She had been asking me to take her to LA so she could see all of the places the Jonas Brothers had been. We started to do some looking online for tour companies and most are cookie cutter companies that do the exact same tour...... Not at all what she was interested in.

Her attention span is limited, she gets tired easily, and is limited in walking for long periods of time. Doing a cookie cutter tour would have been not only a waste of time for her, but also a waste of money for me. As we were researching tours, it was she who happened to see American Riviera Private Tours... so she asked if I could email to see if they could do a "Jonas Brothers Tour"... I was hesitant to try, for fear of disappointing her as I was expecting to be told that that sort of tour would not be possible. So I read some reviews on here, and felt it was worth emailing to find out if this special tour could be arranged.

I am sure glad I did.... Shortly after I emailed there was a response with a positive answer including a quote for the tour so there was no hidden agenda, and I knew exactly what to expect before proceeding.... Galina was excellent in all communication and in the initial email included some locations that could be visited that connected specifically to our request....the Jonas brothers.

So we arrived in LA... Yuri picked us up at the hotel as pre-arranged and off we went on our special "Jonas Brothers Tour". I can't express enough how friendly and caring Yuri was. Throughout the entire tour he was informative, took us to all the promised Jonas Brothers locations that had been mentioned in the emails, (and many more places in LA)... Not only did my daughter get a private Jonas Brothers tour, but I was able to benefit from all the places we saw along the way, and the wealth of information Yuri has on everything LA. Yuri is a very genuine, down to earth person, and we felt very comfortable and at ease right from the time we met him at our hotel.

Prior to our arrival, Yuri had downloaded videos of the Jonas brothers and clips related to them onto his tablet that he had at the front of the vehicle. While driving from location to location along the tour (and while in traffic) , my daughter was able to view these videos and sing along and listen as we continued with the tour. Talk about thoroughly doing their homework and really making it personal.... WOW!!! fantastic touch! I was not expecting that from a tour.... and I am quite certain she would not have gotten that kind of personal attention on any other tour...

I can assure you between the communication with Galina, and the actual tour with Yuri, they really went out of their way to make sure my daughter had a great JONAS BROTHERS TOUR experience!!!

I am definitely recommending Yuri and Galina and American Riviera Tours to all our friends, and anyone I talk to about our trip to LA... as well as anyone reading this review and questioning whether or not to book with them, don't give it another thought. Email them or call them, I promise you, you will not be disappointed!!!... I know I want to go back to LA, and when I do, I know I will connect with Yuri and Galina to set up a tour just the way I want it, and I know they will deliver exactly what I want!!. This tour was a challenge, and they came through with flying colors...

I know if anyone can organize a "Jonas Brothers tour", (especially since the band doesn't exist anymore), then they can definitely create ANY tour you can imagine.... Yuri and Galina did just that!!!

What a fabulous time we had. And Yuri took many photos of us at all of the stops... My daughter keeps saying it was her second dream come true. (her first dream come true was actually seeing the Jonas Brothers in concert when they were a band)

If you are thinking about booking a tour in LA .. any tour... do it with Yuri and Galina (American Riviera Tours) ... you will be happy you did. You will see what YOU want to see. It's your time and your money, why not visit the places and things YOU want to visit?? You can visit and see LA in many ways... but why would you waste your time doing and seeing what OTHER people want to see and do when you can have such a fun time enjoying the things that interest you the most? There is no better way to visit a place than to be able to see exactly what YOU want to see and at YOUR pace. It is up to you, but I know what I am going to do the next time I visit LA.

Thanks Yuri and Galina... We will connect with you next time we are in LA.... BECAUSE OF YOU WE HAVE FALLEN IN LOVE WITH CALIFORNIA. (my daughter has already said when I retire she wants me to move there with her)

Me and my group of three friends originally had a 8 hour layover at LAX before heading back home to Australia. We missed our flight from Vegas to LA so our layover was shortened but our 4 hour tour of LA with Yuriy was a perfect end to our travels. He asked us what we wanted to see and was so easy going. If only we had more time to see some more of what LA had to offer. A big thanks to Yuriy for his friendly service and great knowledge of everything LA. Definitely recommendation and hopefully be back one day to see more of LA

The tour guide was knowledgeable, entertaining and friendly. We saw all of the interest points and had time to sit and eat lunch. If I ever go back to LA and wanted a tour guide, this would be my choice!

I chanced upon American Riveria Tours on TripAdvisor and contacted Galina who provided prompt and helpful advice. Subsequently booked a few transfers and sightseeing tours with the company after reading all the positive reviews.

Galina and Yuriy are simply awesome who provided excellent service. The tours were fun and interesting which were very much enjoyed by my family. Two thumbs up for the couple

Highly recommended for anyone visiting Vegas/ LA/ San Diego. Galina and Yuriy are simply excellent!!

Trip to LA was great! I found this great private tour on trip advisor where people recommended to go with Yuriy, the tour guide. We spent one whole day in San Diego and one whole day in Santa Barbra. It was fun! Yuriy was a really good driver and we felt very safe. He is also knowledgeable about everything we asked and easy outgoing and friendly guy. For 8 people we had enough space for everyone. The price was very affordable compared to other private tours. Now thanks to him we have all the good memories about LA, Sant Diego and Santa Barbra. If you want to have fun time in LA, I recommend Yuriy!

We booked 2 day trips with American Riviera Private tours and had Yuriy as our guide/driver both days.
Yuriy was very knowledgeable about LA and took us to most of the places we wanted to see (unfortunately time was our enemy). We stayed in Anaheim and he was punctual, courteous and very entertaining.
The van for our group of eight was very clean and we were provided with water.
Yuriy allowed us to be very flexible with where we wanted to go and what we wanted to see. We were able to change pick up times with just a simple phone call.
Next time I travel to LA I will definitely be contacting American Riviera Private tours as my preferred company.
Thank you for a wonderful time Yuriy.
