Yuri picked us up at our hotel right on time in a nice big Suburban. He and I had corresponded prior to the trip so he had a good idea of the sites we wanted to see. He took us right away to the Hollywood sign, then off to Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, stars' homes, and on an on. It was so nice not having to try and drive and sightsee at the same time, being able to efficiently go where we wanted to go and getting a lot of back story along the way. Hiring him to guide us made the whole family pretty happy because no arguing and everyone got to see what they wanted to see. He also has a big tablet strapped to the dash that he uses to play YouTube videos that correspond to the next part of the trip and had that all well choreographed.

Overall, the completely stressless day I had and the fun the family had made the very reasonable price worth every penny.

Yuri our driver was waiting for us at the airport when we called. The vehicle was modern, clean and furnished with plenty of bottled water.

Our layover started mid afternoon and went for 5 hours, Yuri suggested a route that suited the time of day and ensuring we were not in the wrong areas after dark.

Yuri was full of useful information for the particular areas we passed through. The tablet with video clips and music that he has mounted in the car was a real hit.

Overall the approach was efficient and informative, we both enjoyed the tour and enjoyed our time with Yuri.

Although I had been to LA several times, my friend had not. We decided to book a private 5 hour tour so that she could see the sites. Due to a flight delay, we were one hour late arriving at LAX. Our guide was understanding and rescheduled us to begin an hour later than planned. We were quite tired from 3 hours sleep before flying, but our guide was a delight and showed us around the sites we wanted to go to. He was great at offering to take photos of us and happy to accommodate our request to stop at the market for lunch and shopping. We were skeptical to book this company as there were very little reviews, but we are happy we did! Private touring is the best way to do things, and the price and quality of the tour guide is fantastic! Thank you to Yuri, we will recommend you to friends!

We are so pleased we used this company as the communications,service and overall experience was first class.
We booked them for transfers to and from the airport and a full days tour of the best spots in LA.
Yuri was brilliant from start to finish including his choice in music and I would definitely recommend this company to anyone whoo whoo.
