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.

The 8 hr private tour was informative and very interesting, and enabled us to view all of the wonderful sights of Los Angeles and surrounding areas. We would recommend using LA Insider Tours to anyone visiting this beautiful City - Dean, Justine and the Boys.

LA Insider Tours provide personalised tours in a comfortable vehicle with your own tour guide. Our guide - Stacey- was very personable and friendly. She had an esky of cold drinks on hand. I felt safe with her at the wheel and she enjoyed conversing with our teenage son about TV shows, Australia etc. Was certainly nice having our own... More

Brilliant tour and would recommend to anyone especially families with younger children. We booked the 8 hr tour and had Stacey as our guide and she was amazing. We saw everything we wanted and some. Nothing was to much for Stacey and she was a pleasure to spend the day with. We did this on the first day of our... More

We had a limited amount of time in L.A. And wanted to see as much of the area as possible. LA Insider Tours was perfect for us. Scott picked up our party of four at our hotel as soon as we got off the airport shuttle and proceeded to give an excellent tour of the LA Hollywood area. Besides being... More

Went to LA for spring break with the family and had a great experience with Kevin our tour guide. He customized the tour for our three boys to make it interesting and a very low stress, fun filled day. Totally worth the money and while 8 hours sounds like a lot, the time flies by! There is so much to... More

Forget the large tour bus concept and spend the money to have a great experience with your one on one tour guide at LA Insider Tours. I would do this all over again - fantastic service and experience. Robin went "over budget" on her time and showed us things we would NEVER have seen on our own.

In early April, my husband, parents, and myself visited Los Angeles. After researching and contacting several companies with similar private day tours, I decided to book the All of L.A. in a Day Tour with LA Insider Tours. I'm so happy that I did! Our tour guide Scott was excellent and was truly an L.A. "insider." He was professional, knowledgeable,... More

We had one day to see LA and LA Insider Tours truly delivered a great time. Robin, our guide and was very engaging and knowledgeable. Our family of 4 (2 granddaughters, 14/12) enjoyed the teen/tween tour. The girls had a wonderful time and were very impressed; which isn't an easy task at that age. It was the best decision ever!...

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.
