6 of us got a private tour in a large SUV. We had such a great day and yuri our guide really made our day! He made the tour really interesting for us and we could stop off where ever we wanted. Yuri knew all the best spots and took a million pictures for us, he was very patient. We were all so glad we booked this private tour and would defo recommend.

My husband and I were on a holiday to Las Vegas and due to LA only being a short flight away, we investigated companies that carried out a private tour. Following our research online, we came across American Riviera Private Tours and put a call into them to check out the logistics of our requests. I had read previous reviews on Trip Advisor and noted that Yuri was a very popular tour guide and subsquently it was him I spoke to. Straight away, he had come across as a very friendly and helpful person, so put our minds at rest that we were dealing with a legimate company.

We then booked the tour for Monday 7th April and Yuri came and met us as advised at LAX airport. He introduced himself and talked about how long he had been doing tours and explained about the company. Yuri was a very pleasant person and made us feel very relaxed, whilst answering any questions we had.

We orginally booked 8hrs with Yuri but extended this tour by a further 2.5hrs and that still wasn't enough time to see everything that we wanted! We saw all the famous sights of LA and not to mention the uber posh area of Beverley Hills and even got to visit some celebrity homes! I personally was surprised at how big LA was and as Yuri said, everybody drives in LA, so expect a lot of traffic!! Yuri took us to a fantastic place for lunch, with a brazilian style theme of choosing from a salad bar and then picking your chosen meats from the skewers! One of the best meals we had whilst on our trip to Vegas. We finished our tour with a quick stop at Santa Monica beach, unfortunately we didn't get enough time to visit the pier due to us making personal requests to stop off along the way but a great end to the day and we can completely understand why so many people choose to live in California.

Overall this tour was a highlight of our trip and has given us food for thought on a first visit to LA and its surrounding areas. We will definitely be coming back and finishing off the sights we didn't get a chance to do.

Thank you Yuri for a great service and all your knowledge.

I was with five of my English students whose English level is very low. Yuriy spoke to them slowly and with easy English and sometimes asked basical questions to them. That was very practical to my students. He was with full of flexibility and we never waste any time of out trip in Los Angeles.
I promised him to come back again next year with other students. Thank you, Yuriy again.

Easy to book and deal with. Driver arrived on time. at clean and tidy. Driver - Yuri- was extremely pleasant, knowledgable and helpful. Happy to recommend. Good value for money and provided car seats for the young children in our group. Great way to see the best of LA at your own pace, especially when traveling with small children. Great lunch recommendation, too. Thank you. Well done!

My Daughter and I had an 11 hour stop over in L. A whist waiting for our connecting flight to Australia so we contacted this tour agency and had a fantastic 6 hours being shown around LA , all the sights and a stop at a great market to purchase lunch. Friendly service and very informative. Yuri picked us up at the airport and dropped us back there. Also very friendly service re booking this tour from Galina via Emails . Yuri was happy to take our luggage if necessary too as not sure if luggage was going all the way through from Miami to LA then Melbourne or if we had to pick it up in LA then check it in again . Nothing was too much trouble .
Excellent Heather and Lauren
