I'm also one of few full-time tour guides who are registered, licensed, randomly drug tested, and insured for leading private tours as required by the State of California.
My customers have been thoroughly satisfied because I am "very friendly, full of knowledge of L. A. and its history. " They "got to see so much and got the most out of the precious travel time" they had. They "never felt rushed, and at the same time packed in so much" as they requested. They "felt more exclusive and special" during my private tour. " (These quotes are selected from my customer feedback history here. )
If this is the type of experience you are looking for while exploring L. A. , you have found the right guide. A private tour with me is particularly suitable for seeing Los Angeles, a city so spread out, so living on wheels. Your impression of the city really depends on how you tour L. A.
I love L. A. ! The art, the glamor, the diverse people, the history, the creativity, the amazing food, the beautiful natural scenery, and the perfect weather all year long make it so fun to live here. Of course, it's a fabulous place for tourists! But you need to know how to explore it all especially when you have only limited time to see so much. Your first impression of L. A. may be that of a city made of concrete, but a short ride with me can take you to the most trendy shopping districts or the kind of tranquility that can only be found around wild flowers, trees, birds, rocks and the ocean breeze. You may think it's just a high rise apartment building we are passing by, but behind it may be a movie star's final resting place. You will recognize places you have read about or watched on TV, and hear many local secrets, history, and stories I would love to share with you!
I'm very easygoing, flexible, and accommodating. I'm great with families with kids and teenagers, international visitors, and elderly travelers as I'm also a docent at the Getty Center, with ESL education and world travel experience. With a local tour guide like me, you will have everything covered.
A Recent Review of this guide
My 12-year-old son and I really enjoyed our Hollywood / LA tour with Jasmine. She personalised the tour to what we wanted to see. When we noticed there was to be an induction on the walk of fame that day (Simon Cowell), Jasmine adapted our tour so that we could watch it! My second time using ToursByLocals, I highly recommend it.
