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.

Best Day!

We organized a full eight hour tour for the four of us on our first day in LA. It was the best decision ever! Kevin was fantastic. Thanks for making it a memorable day.

Had a great full day "teens and tweens" tour with Scott. He was a fantastic tour guide and made sure we all saw everything we wanted to see plus many extras. Highly recommend!

As a southern born and raised boy, I like wide open spaces and friendly faces. To be honest, I didn't think LA would have either of those things. I wasn't too excited about going to the LA area. Rather than waste time and energy attempting to see "the sights" of LA on our own, we began looking at tour companies... More

We took the Tween tour for our daughters. They loved it and had a great time. Would recommend it! We got great pictures at the Hollywood sign, saw celebrity homes, the Farmer Market, Dash and the Instagram walls. My daughter has great pictures!!!

We were lucky enough to get Rivers as our guide who shared so much history about every site we visited. He kept us interested and laughing all day long. I was amazed at how much ground we were able to cover. We finished our tour wishing for more and ready to plan our next visit.

This was a special surprise for my wife and she was thrilled to have her own private tour guide. We just didn't like the idea of riding a bus with someone barking through a megaphone, so I was really glad to find LA Insider Tours. Scott was our private guide and he knows LA and so much about its history,... More

We were in LA with 3 children (10, 12, 14) who were on their first overseas trip and this tour was perfect! We did the 'Build Your Own Tour' visiting the Hollywood Sign, Celebrity Homes in the Hollywood Hills and Beverly Hills, Sunset Strip and Melrose Ave where we did some shopping at DASH. It was obvious that our tour... More

We booked one of the all day private day tours since we had a day to spend after our cruise, before heading home. We were picked up promptly by Rivers at the Cruise terminal and had a wonderful tour. Rivers was a fun guide with a wealth of information and facts on LA. We especially enjoyed his sense of humour... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood
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.
