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.

My family and I had a wonderful afternoon touring LA with Amanda. She picked us up promptly at the hotel and off we went. We were worried it might be a little weird driving around for so long with a total stranger, but Amanda was quite charming and conversation was easy and fun. My only regret at all was not being specific enough in exactly what we would have liked to see. This tour will take you literally anywhere you want to go, but we only had a few items on our agenda. But Amanda made up for our lack of clear agenda, with fascinating conversation from the perspective of what it's like to actually live and work in LA and the entertainment industry. Spend the extra money on this tour...so worth it! When you drive past the people cramped up on the busses you'll be glad you did. Thanks, Amanda...Marissa, Lisa and Gary enjoyed our time with you!

Kevin was amazing - we had the 'design your own day' and we just gave him a list of places we wanted to see and famous people's houses - off we went in an aircon car, just the 4 of us. Jam packed day inc. Hollywood sign, farmers market, stars homes, walk of fame, observatory, sunset, beverly hills, rodeo .... OMG so much ! Our teenagers loved it, we loved the personal service and not having to worry where to park. Absolutely worth the price and a great way to start a holiday. Dont forget the cupcake atm !

We arrived in LA and were overwhelmed with the size of the city. We had booked an 8 hr tour with LA insiders on recommendation from a friend who had used them and are so glad that we did. We were collected from our hotel by our guide Rivers in a comfy a/c van, plenty of room for four of us inc two teenagers. Rivers was a great guide and as a stand up comic brought a fantastic feel to the day and was a great hit with our teenage boys. He has a wealth of knowledge about LA and was always giving us snippets of fascinating facts, I would HIGHLY recommend him.
As for the tour it's fab, overlooking the vast city of LA from the Griffith Observatory, getting sooooo close to the Hollywood sign, exploring Hollywood inc the oscars venue, Chinese theatre and walk of fame, lunch at the farmers market and then onto the stars homes , Beverley hills and Venice beach. It really is the only way to see la in a day and I would highly recommend this company and tour to anyone. It really is worth every cent, you will NOT be disappointed. Thanks for a great day Rivers.

My family, including three teens, recently took this private tour of All LA in a Day and we had a great day. Our guide was Kevin and we all thought he was terrific - a very cheerful personality with plenty of knowledge about everything...including patiently answering my husband's relentless baseball questions. The transport is very comfortable and can access areas other tours might find difficult. We were collected and dropped off at our hotel and the entire process was very relaxed and easy. We all thought this tours was well worth the money and my kids have reminded me several times to ensure I give Kevin a good review on Trip Advisor!

We took a 3.5 hour tour with Rivers, and it was terrific. The tour was customized to cover the things that we were interested in, and the pickup and dropoff at our hotel made it super easy. It was definitely the highlight of the trip for our kids. From the 'insider's' view of the Hollywood sign to seeing stars' homes, they were riveted. And Rivers was an informed, witty guide to all that we saw. We would definitely recommend Rivers and this tour!
