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 did a 6 hour tour and it was really amazing! Los Angeles can be a tough city as a tourist; you really need to know where to go. I've been to LA at least a dozen times, but I've never really felt like I've seen it. Stephen took us out for an amazing tour of the area. He not only knows the latest in celebrity sightings, but has a great knowledge of the history of Hollywood and how it became what it is today. The vehicle was clean and comfortable and Stephen made it easy to ask questions and tailored our day based on our interests. It was an amazing tour!

We were on a Cruise in September, and we had only 1 Day to see LA. We took a 6 hour tour. Scott picked us up at the Cruise ship, and we saw everything we wanted to see. It was amazing!! Scott was so knowledgeable, pleasant and very calm; a perfect person to drive in crazy LA traffic . He customized the tour around what we wanted, but he also made some great suggestios as to things to see. We can't believe how much we saw in such a short time and he returned us to the ship with plenty of time to spare. What a fantastic experience for my first time in LA. I would reccomend this company very highly ( the Owner Steve was wonderful and very helpful when I called to book), and Scott was the best tour guide we have ever had. Don't hesitate to ask for him!!

My daughter and i took two four hour tours on seperate days. Our guide Vanessa was FANTASTIC. Informative, and energetic, but most of all she was like being with a friend. She customized our tour, gave us ourspace but always knew just the right things to say at the right time. I've been on many private tours in many places, but thiswas the best ever. A great value and lifetime memories. I cannot say enough about them. Easyto reach, easy to deal with and extremely knowledgable.

Absolutely fantastic tour thanks to our tour guide, Eric. He couldn't have been any more helpful. Picked us up at a time suitable to us, took us to places we really wanted to see, skipped those bits we were interested in and kept us highly entertained for the duration. Even when our camera was unfortunately stolen, he tried his outmost to get it returned to us. When all avenues failed, he took us to Costco and let us use his membership to purchase a replacement. That probably wasn't allowed, but was really appreciated by us. For anyone wanting a friendly, informative and customisable tour I couldn't recommend LA Insider Tours any higher.
