American Riviera Private Tours was fantastic!!! Galina made everything so easy - Many thanks!!!!
AR were the only tour company whom I could actually book a day trip to Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, Malibu and the Paramount Movie Ranch from Australia!!!!
AR were on time, - and I had an amazing last day in LA all thanks to Yuri and American Riviera Private Tours!!!
Yuri was fabulous - he was very informative, and had some great Ellen moments to share, and the perfect gentleman (particularly with my heavy luggage!!!).
Ronald Reagan Presidential Library was awesome - just wished that we had more time to explore the extensive library (next time)!!!
The Paramount Movie Ranch was fabulous to visit too!!!!
I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND American Riviera Private tours to anyone, and I will definitely be using them the next time I visit LA!!!!
Thanks so much for a memorable day!!

The 3 of us took the city tour as we only had 1 day in LA and wanted to make the most of it.
Galina was a nice and fun tour guide and driver and you can tell she has been doing the tours for some years as she really knows her way around.
The price of $60/Hour is appropriate and we liked that she would tailor the tour according to what you want to see, very individual.
The only thing we would have liked better is to make a smaller lunch break (2hrs) and instead see a little bit more of the city, but everything else was good.

After two more sea days to wind down for our three weeks at sea, we arrived in San Pedro (Los Angeles). Rather than rushing to the airport, we decided to tour the city focusing on parts we seldom if ever saw - the San Fernando Valley, Hollywood Boulevard, Beverly Hills, Rodeo Drive, Santa Monica, Venice and Marina Del Rey before heading to our hotel.

We booked a six hour tour with American Riviera Tours (Los Angeles Tours) - 1-800-761-1775 info@latraveltours.com
Our guide Vladimir picked us up at the cruise terminal, showed us around the city, took many pictures for us and left us at our hotel next to LAX. He was very knowledgeable was fun to be with. They do offer shorter tours if necessary to meet flight connections but the six hour tour is better if you have the time. Highly recommended.

just returned from 12 day cruise, and our guide, Yuri picked us up from the port and gave us a fantastic tour of LA. He was courteous and informative. We were delivered to the airport in perfect timing to take our flight home. We saw more of LA than we thought possible in a few hours time. Thank-you Yuri...it was the perfect ending for our trip.

There were 5 of us sisters from 3 different states, with 1 day to see as much of LA as possible. Yuriy, our driver/guide, did a great job of showing us the city. He picked us up timely and took us wherever we wanted to go, all the while driving smoothly (we are SO glad none of us needed to drive in LA traffic). We enjoyed "playing tourist" in several popular areas - downtown LA, Grauman's Chinese Theatre, Dolby Theatre, Griffith Observatory, viewing the Hollywood sign, etc.

Yuriy was very knowledgable and had a good sense of timing, never hurrying us and willing to wait longer when we needed more time for pictures or exploring, but still managing to show us a great variety of areas in our planned 8 hours. He filled slow traffic time by playing several videos (2-5 minutes long) in the vehicle that were both entertaining and informative.

For a group, a private tour is the way to go - flexible, efficient and tailored to your taste. We all would highly recommend Yuriy for such a tour.
