I did a private tour of LA during a long stopover at LAX. It was a great way to make the most of my time. The guide, Yuriy, picked me up at LAX and dropped me back right on time and my luggage was conveniently stored on board throughout. There is no way I would have been able to see as much of LA in a short time without this tour. Yuriy knows alot about LA and is energetic and entertaining.It is a little expensive, as you might expect of a private tour, but worth it for the experience and great convenience.

Thank you for your feedback. We try to pack as much of sightseeing places as possible into each tour with some customized material depending on the clients interest in Los Angeles.

My husband and I had a 4 hour private tour with this company in advance of going on a cruise. Our Driver/guide was Yuriy and he was a great guide.

Yuriy picked us up at our hotel in San Pedro and then dropped us at the cruise ship terminal. The tour was fun and informative. Yuriy had a playlist linked to all the places we were visiting which was good fun. Yuriy's knowledge of Los Angeles and California was outstanding. We were very impressed.

Caught bus from San Pedro cruise terminal for LA city tour of six hours. When booked we were advised that there was a maximum of 8 people,possibly less. Paid in advance. Prior to departure advised that there were now 13 others on trip. I asked about the 8 maximum and was told there was now another 13 and thats it. Waited at terminal and sent text ask location of pickup as there were multiple areas, description of bus and where. Text reply 'pick up at 10 sharp' - no description or where. Rang the number and advised be there in 7 minutes. Guide turned up with our name on paper. Located others on tour which turned out to be another 15 people. Sat in front passenger seat and could see not much. Could not see out front window and side window half blocked. Bus not suitable for task. Arrived at LAX an hour early so only 5 hour tour and asked guide why we got back an hour early and was told that the other group of 15 wanted to get back to the airport early so it was bad luck for us. I suggest that there are better tour companies out there for the price. As a postscript- just received email refunding $30 of the $298 and an apology.

Our family of 4 spent 7 hours one day and 4 hours the next with this company on a private tour of LA and surrounding beaches. This was without a doubt one of the most memorable parts of our stay in the USA.
The company was easy to deal with and accommodating in planning our tour.
Not only did we get to see what we wanted to see (and more) it was great value for money.
I have recommended this to other friends that have travelled over who have loved it as well.
