What tour company drives an hour outside of L.A. just to pick up a client? WOW, what service! Big Black SUV, private guide/chauffer, water bottles, personal conversation (as if we were family), videos of LA sites during slow traffic times, and more. Yuriy was a blast! He knew all the shortcuts to get around traffic, the best places to take pictures, GREAT lunch stop near the Chinese Theatre, and he was an encyclopedia of news, history, and LA culture. We weren't so interested in the usual Hollywood tourist stuff (looking for movie stars, handprints and homes), so Yuriy showed us other beautiful places...even a trip to the beach (Santa Monica--wow!) about 35 minutes North before returning us to our hotel in Anaheim. Who needs to look for celebrities when you can be treated like one with AR-LA Tours! Six hours of relaxed, pampered, enjoyment! Thanks Yuriy and Galina. The Roberts/Texas

Yuriy was beyond amazing -! He exceeded our expectations and we were so lucky to have booked him! He is a very knowledgeable, interesting individual. We felt safe and comfortable while in his care and he was very positive and personable. We will be keeping his info for future excursions!! Applauds to Yuriy!

Due to a late flight home following a cruise, we arranged a LA tour through American Riviera - Galina was exceptionally helpful and we had a Tour specific to our requirements. Our tour guide Yuri was very professional, informative and entertaining. At the end of the tour we were dropped off at the Airport for our flight back to the UK ...... A brilliant end to our holiday. Thank you so much

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!!
