Bianca_B, May 2023
What a fun and personal tour. The group was super small (just me and another person) so it felt extra VIP! Daniel made the entire experience moat enjoyable with plenty of stops for great photo opportunities. He took us to a great hole in the wall Mexican restaurant, so good! He was on time and overall a wonderful guide. I would recommend this to anyone, be it solo travelers or small groups.
Great way to start your vacation in LA
AnneMarie_G, May 2023
Our group appreciated the balance of taking photos at the popular sights along with the unique local art scene. Interesting historical tidbits and being a small group, it was personalized! Highly recommend Daniel!
Great Tour
Stephanie_B, May 2023
Tour guide Daniel was very good. Website stated we'd be in van but because only 3 of us we were a Prius. Not very clean.
Excellent experience of LA
Rebekah_B, May 2023
Daniel was an excellent tour guide! It felt a lot more personal as it wasn’t a huge group. Me and my partner rarely get photos taken of us that arnt ‘selfies’ so it was great to have someone snapping some great pictures of our memories!
Perfect day in LA
Montana_S, May 2023
Daniel went out of his way accommodating us! I cannot recommend him highly enough. He is extremely knowledgeable of the area and we thoroughly enjoyed our day with him
A great way to spend the day

What a great way to spend some time being a tourist in the LA area! Daniel was very flexible, chill, and informative. My 11 year old, who can be hard to impress, thoroughly enjoyed her experience. Thanks, Daniel!

Nikki_B, Apr 2023
We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon with Daniel! Took us to many spots the typical tours would not be able to do.
Great fit for us!
Kathy_A, Apr 2023
This was a great activity for us! We were returning from a cruise and wanted something fun to do before our late evening flight. Daniel was great about helping me put together a plan that would get us from the cruise port to the meet-up location to the airport. Communication with him before we left was excellent and helpful. The tour itself covered a lot of interesting sights with stops for photos, but felt relaxed at the same time. We stopped for about 45 minutes at the Farmer's Market to sample lots of the tasty offerings available there. All in all, I would recommend this tour to others hoping for a sample of LA. Thanks Daniel!
Denise_B, Feb 2023

Best Tour Guide
Ann_H, Jan 2023
Daniel, was an absolute brilliant guide. It is so obvious that he enjoys his work and researches every aspect of his tours thoroughly. We ended up having a private tour as no one else had booked. The tour was fabulous covering most of the places you wanted to see but his local knowledge was such a bonus! This guy knows his stuff! We were made very comfortable in his company. I think anyone coming to LA should go on one of his tours! A true gentleman & fabulous guide with loads of knowledge. Kept us informed about pick up and was willing to be very flexible. Such a star!
