Owner description: 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.

I traveled to LA for my girlfriends birthday and it was my first time visiting the city so I needed a good tour service. I chose LA Insider Tours and let me tell you it was a great experience! Kevin our tour guide was very knowledgable, personable and friendly. He made the experience worth while! HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY!

On our first family trip to LA with teenagers , I thought this would work well after reading the reviews on here and I wasn't disappointed . Kevin, our tour guide, struck the right note with everyone - he was punctual, informative and really helpful. We had a great day and we saw everything we wanted to see and more - Kevin even took us to skateboarding shops for my 13 year old son. A great start to our LA trip - would highly recommend this .

Our family, 2 adults and 2 teens (one boy, one girl), made our first trip ever to California last March. We found LA Insider Tours on Trip Advisor before we left. Boy, are we glad we did!!! This was the first thing we did on our trip and it was AWESOME! Kevin picked us up in a very comfortable car in Marina Del Rey and took us everywhere that we wanted to go. The teens enjoyed walking Hollywood Blvd., seeing the Observatory and then driving through all of the stars streets! Kevin was knowledgeable and fun. It was great to see everything in one day and then decide where to return to later in the week. We really enjoyed that it was private!!! It was nice to not have to share a crowded bus or stop only where the other tours go. I highly recommend this tour!!

We came across LA Insider Tours on Trip Advisor and consequently my husband and I booked an 8 hour tour on 19th June; we had an awesome day! We were staying in Santa Monica for three nights and wanted to see the LA sights, without the hassle of trying to find our way around on our own. This was definitely the easiest and best way to see LA!

By having a private tour guide we could have tailored the tour to suit us, however, we figured that our guide Scott knew best so we were happy for him to plan the route. We saw all the sights that we had heard of, as well as a few others, and an added bonus was that we had our own personal photographer, so we have plenty of photos of both of us together! Being on our own on the tour was much more enjoyable, comfortable and personal, compared to taking a group tour on a bus. We also thought LA Insider Tours was excellent value for money.

Scott was very knowledgeable and easy to get on with. We highly recommend taking a tour with LA Insider Tours, we wouldn't see LA any other way!

We had one day in LA before heading north. Eric Aguilera with LA insider tours was perfect. Our family was able to see more of LA than we could ever have done on our own. Eric had an amazing command of the city's attractions and navigated beautifully. We saw the sights you'd expect, but he also took us to beautiful unexpected sites like the Greystone Mansion which showed us more of Old Hollywood. We toured with just our family which was fun and could not be more pleased with the day Eric provided!!
Great job!
