Family Friendly Custom Tours of LA, Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Santa...

Family Friendly Custom Tours of LA, Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica.

We specialize in personable, entertaining, one-on-one tour experiences showing you the real Los Angeles in private, unmarked vehicles. We pick you up directly at your hotel and return you at the end of your tour. No scrambling to get to a meeting location or waiting on a bus while the tour company goes from hotel to hotel picking up other passengers. You get to choose what you see, when you see it, and how you see it. It's a custom tour and best of all completely private -- stop for a photo op anywhere you like or just feel free to act silly with family and friends without worrying about what the other strangers on the tour will think. See the city as an LA insider with local knowledge from people who live here - it's just like having a friend in town.

We booked a 4 hour tour with LA Insider Tours after my friend raved about theirs. Our tour guide was excellent! Robin showed up on time to pick us up after our cruise. She had a worldwind tour planned out for us. She was so easy to talk to, I felt like I was riding around with a friend I... More

I've booked many private and VIP tours all over the country and this was one of the best! I had 3 kids with me ages 12, 8 and 5. Our tour guide, Scott, was so good showing us things that were interesting to adults and kids! This tour is definitely worth the money, and if you book ask for Scott!... More

This was our 2nd tour with LA Insider and I hope it's not our last. Kevin made me feel special the many times I spoke with him in planning our trip. Rivers was our tour guide this year as well as a couple of years ago. He actually remembered us! The tour was one of the highlights of our trip.... More

Our guide was Kevin. Very informative. We would have never had this type of experience driving around on our own. He was able to show us around the areas we wanted to see and give us extra time where needed. Next trip to LA, we will do this tour again to see different areas. Highly recommended!

Our tour guide was Rivers and he was knowledgeable and delightful. His stories were entertaining and he obligingly answered our every question or desire. He was the consummate chauffeur and changed plans on the fly for us as we thought of new ideas. We will definitely book with LA Insider again when we return. Kevin's help and attention to our...

Rivers was a great driver and very knowledgable about LA! We enjoyed seeing all the sights and he stopped at all the best spots and directed us to all the good photo opportunities. We loved the Hollywood sign photos he took of us - it was real fun!

This was the best tour I have ever done. Our tour guide Robin was great, funny and we had a great time. Doing a private tour was perfect, because we got to do what we wanted to do! We were picked up right at our hotel, and dropped off where we wanted! I would recommend this tour to everyone!!!!

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
