Emily is an amazing tour guide. She is so knowledgeable in all things LA and CA itself. My family and I learned so much about the history of the places she took us. She also took us to so many hidden gems throughout the city. We saw so much in the eight hours we were with her. I would highly highly recommend this tour!
Kim K.Singapore, Singapore
Very friendly and engaging style. We were amazed by how she kept up an energetic and highly informative 4-hour commentary while driving and showing us the key sights! Good efficient pacing of the tour and interesting candid commentaries. She is clearly a very experienced and knowledgeable guide. We will highly recommend her.
We really enjoyed our tour with Emily. It was as if we were visiting Los Angeles with a relative. Emily is very friendly, and she's doing so much to make her guests enjoy the visit as much as possible. The experience is really worth. It is also very convenient as Emily picks you up where you stay and brings you back there. So if you are travelling with kids, it makes your journey nice and easy
Our day with Emily was thoroughly enjoyable.Her wealth of knowledge of the city and its history left nothing to be desired. She went above and beyond our expectations, suggesting best utilisation of our time and provided invaluable advice and recommendations for the remainder of our USA vacation. Very professional and made our tour extra special . Many thanks Emily

Emily gave my family a wonderful tour of the greater Los Angeles area. Our family consisted of four children (ages 10, 8, 6, and 4), my wife and me. Every single person loved the tour. Emily was so knowledgeable of the area's history and was able to make the tour very educational. But she was also able to make it fun and interesting for everyone. She also knew so much about pop culture and was able to show us celebrity homes. She also made it fun for our children. I recommend Emily without reservstion.
Emily was very knowledgeable and friendly. An excellent experience.
Very good guide ,thank you EMILY it was a great tour
Mary ScanlonUnited States
Emily was an amazing wealth of knowledge about Los Angeles and its surrounding area. She was extremely accommodating and met us early so we could fit in a five hour tour. She drove us to amazing sights and our family had a great day!!! We would recommend Emily without a doubt for any tour you would take with her!! Thanks Emily for an incredible day!!! The Scanlon family P.S. It poured at the Notre Dame USC game!!!

Great guide, very knowledgeable and adjustable to our requirements. Comfortable car and competent driver.
Emily was very informative and went above and beyond to make sure our tour was one to remember. I can not recommend her more highly.
Nancye StarnesUnited States
Emily was delightful, full of stories and information. She maneuvers her way around LA traffic beautifully.
The only way to see such a vast city as Los Angeles is with some kind of tour. The best way is with a private tour so you can see the places that interest you. And the best guide is Emily. I have done tours by locals around the world and Emily is one of the most professional and friendly I have ever met. Thank you Emily for an incredible tour. Thank you Emily for being so friendly and wonderful
John JenningsUnited States
Emily was very good. However the time went by so fast. We got to see everything that we wanted.
Emily took us to very interesting places and we felt " we saw and enjoyed many aspects of LA " Emily was a good driver, she was prepared , cold drinks available , the car was clean and comfy . She knew LA and told us a lot of history not only about the " film side " but also about the place itself, overall a super tour and our first with Tours by locals who were recommended to us . We shall certainly be using you again . All in all ten out of ten . Kind regards Nancy and Ed

We were very happy with Emily, and would recommend her to our friends when they plan to visit Los Angeles.
John SmallNew Zealand
The tour seemed expensive when we booked it but it was well worth it and great value for money. Emily arrived on time, was with us all day and even dropped us off at the airport. She adapted the tour as the day went on to achieve everything we wanted to achieve, as well as showing us the local sights. She was very knowledgeable and could speak on any subject. We felt like Emily really cared about meeting our needs and making sure we had a great day. We would highly recommend her and Tours by Locals.
Emily is amazing! The tour was so special and personalised, she is an absolute delight and very knowledgable. Extremely highly recommended, I would definitely love to do a tour with her again on my next visit to the USA. Someone that I can trust. Thank you Emily!
Mary WalkerUnited States
My nephew and I had a fabulous time with Emily for 2 days when we were in Los Angeles. Emily was great! She was always right on time, fun to be with, nice, and enthusiastic. Emily told us that Sharon Stone was going to be interviewed by "Extra" TV host Mario Lopez at Universal Studios and asked us if we'd like to see it, which of course we did! We feel lucky that Emily was available to show us around LA for the 2 days that we were there. Thanks!
Emily is a great tour guide. She was flexible to what we wanted to see, took all our family photos, and is very knowledgeable and interesting. We thoroughly enjoyed her tour.

Great tours. Friendly guide and we all had fun
Emily was amazing!! So informative and friendly. She knew so much history about our tour and made us feel very comfortable with her. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone!!!
Excellent!!! Will definately be calling her next time we are in LA!!! Emily went out of her way to please!!!
Emily was a joy to spend the day with, very knowledgeable and the 8 hours flew by. Enjoyed all the stops including Griffith Observatory, photo opportunity at foot of Hollywood sign, Santa Monica Pier and Venice Beach and then finished off doing some star homes spotting. It is a credit to her tour guide skills that even our jet lagged kids were kept reasonably entertained throughout the day.
Laura CriswellUnited States
Our family had a great tour of LA with Emily. She picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel in a very comfortable minivan. She took us to every famous site and knew all the great spots to take photos. It was a pleasure seeing the city with her and even the kids loved learning all about LA! Many thanks Emily for an amazing day!
Cheryl ImbrianiUnited States
Emily was fabulous! Not only did we hit the hot spots but she had interesting things to tell us about the area and people. She even accommodated a detour to see the planetarium. It was well worth it and I would do it again.
A definite 10 out of 10 for the lovely Emily. We had a late start due to our delayed flight, but didn't miss out on a thing during the day. Emily is very well informed and considerate to your desires. A wonderful day and I highly recommend you book your tour with her.
Michael MassimillaUnited States
Emily did an excellent job guiding us around the L.A. area for two days. We had a great time.
Muddasar ChaudryUnited States
Superb, simply excellent. Very knowledgeable
Pasadena is another side of Los Angeles that was interesting and had some hidden gems. I enjoyed the day and Emily taking me around to the sites. Emily was very courteous and friendly and allowed plenty of time at the places we visited. The day was at a comfortable pace and Emily also have a supply of cold drinks which is great on a hot day!
Laura HalseyUnited Kingdom
Emily is a fantastic guide. Very informative, keeps you engaged and interested all the time. Showed us some very interesting places with lots of history and found something for everyone in our group from Film locations to awe inspiring views to boats and cake shops! A brilliant day out and felt like we'd had a tour with a friend rather than a guide. Thank you very much Emily, would recommend any day of the week!
Amy Anderson SchultzeUnited States
Emily is the best! She was able to accommodate my family of five with an age range of 11-71! Our cruise ship came into port and Emily met us exactly on time! Emily was able to give a sampling of San Diego that the cruiseline couldn't even come close to achieving. In 7 hrs we visited: Gaslight District, Old Town, Balboa Park (spent 2 hr in San Diego Zoo even went through panda exhibit), lunch at Seaport Village, quick stop at Hard Rock Cafe, USS Midway (spent 75 min). Wish we had more time!
Our tour with Emily G was fantastic, My family and I thought she did a wonderful job as our tour guide. Her itinerary she had planned for us was great. She allowed us to see LA and Hollywood at our pace especially after we unexpectedly made a 2 hour stop which was not planned on her part but she was happy to wait for us. After this my family and I agreed that Emily G along with her destination to get a look at the Hollywood sign really made our tour. Thank you Emily G for a great day in LA
Blaire MelskyUnited States
Emily was very pleasant and understood exactly what we wanted to do for the day. She was flexible. We recommend her highly for all ages. You would be lucky to have her as your guide
Larry D HarrisUnited States
Emily was great, she arrived on-time ( in fact a few minutes early) was very friendly, her car was well kept and spacious enough for our family of 3. She was extremely knowledgeable of the LA area and the sites. Emily was very thoughtful and did not rush us and politely moved us along to the various destinations. She e took pictures of us at various sites and was very good about finding great places for picture taking. My wife, son and I were very impressed with her knowledge. She covered all the sites.
Great tour and good value for money but would have been much better if Emily had parked the car and walked with us so she could point out the attractions.
Lorraine CanterAuckland, New Zealand
From the moment my husband and I met Emily we knew our 8 hour tour with her would be relaxing and informative. We had just arrived in Los Angeles from New Zealand and Emily arrived promptly at the airport to meet us. We were amazed how much we learned that day. Emily is very enthusiastic about LA and we went everywhere on our drive-by tour. Emily's tour was special, she made it special and we have memories that will last forever.
Judith EasleyAsheville, NC, United States
Emily was super. Very professional and informative. Great tour and lots of fun.
We are a family of 5 with three children, and were looking for a tour of LA, that would keep everyone interested. We found Tours by Locals, and hit the jackpot! We tailor make our own private tour to suit our own needs and because we had a local tour guide, we got to know the secret extras only a local would know. Emily G, our tour guide was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble, she was informative, patient, flexible and genuinely interested in us having the best tour possible - highly recommended.
Emily was absolutely excellent and made our few hours in LA very memorable.
Hi there, we thoroughly enjoyed our half day tour with Emily however in hindsight I wish we had had more time to absorb what was on offer. Emily was very knowledgeable about everywhere she took us and we really appreciated the information she provided - especially in relation to areas such as how Venice Beach got its name. Emily was very friendly and conversational and we all felt at ease and comfortable with her on the tour. If we come back to LA we'll definitely look you up again!
Sandra B.Kambah, ACT, Australia
I was really happy with everything about this tour. Emily is friendly and personable with a lot of knowledge of Los Angeles. The plan was that Emily would take us to a few places we had nominated, and other than that would show us around at her discretion. This worked really well - we saw what we wanted to see, but also saw and learned so much about Los Angeles and its people and history and buildings. I'd highly recommend Emily's tours to anyone wanting to see Los Angeles!
Emily's knowledge of the L A area is wide and far and not only about the tourist side.We had a limited time and Emily tailored the trip to fit in with our requirements.Should we return to L A for another visit we will certainly be contacting Emily for another tour. 11/10 from me Regards R W Perrin Australia
Emily was very accommodating and willing to please. Her knowledge of area was very informative and thorough. For our family of four I believe this is the only way to see L.A. There is no stress of driving in L.A traffic and looking at maps. Just relax and see all the amazing sites that L.A. has to offer. Job well done Emily. Highly recommended.
A big thank you to Emily. You made our visit to LA just how we planned. All the sites you selected for us were just perfect and suited us. Not only is Emily a great guide, we also felt we spent the day with a "friend". We will always look into tours by locals in our next travels. Thank you.
Emily was a prompt and informative and enjoyable tour guide. Very good tour showing the family places other tours couldn't go. Lots of fun. Thank-you Emily.

Wow! The tour we took with Emily G. was top notch! I give the tour and her a perfect 10. She did an AMAZING job at showing us the hot spots and top places in and around LA. She was more like a good friend, like we had all known her for years-we felt very safe with her. My children thought she was AWESOME! Her kindness and bright personality were heart felt. Thank you Tours by Locals for letting Emily show us around the city. Next time we are in the LA area we WILL be booking another day with Emily! Thanks
Maria RuizUnited States
Awesome!!Emily was great. We will strongly recommend this tour and Emily to our friends in Tampa!
Simon GarciaUnited Kingdom
We booked a tour of LA with Emily and it was a 5 out of 5. I would highly recommend the tour. Emily removed the stress and took us around for the whole day in a fun relaxed manner in which we saw everything we wanted to and more. Her local knowledge was superb and she left us well equipped to know where and when to go to visit places for the rest of our stay in LA. A real pot of gold.
Kent GowerUnited States
Emily was fantastic! She was very knowledgeable, polite, considerate, and kind. She designed a customized tour that would interest us and our two teenagers. She took pictures for us, explained the history and background of places we visited, and even showed us a few surprises along the way. We would highly recommend taking this tour with Emily. Thank you, Emily, for a great start to our southern California vacation!
Paul MarshallUnited Kingdom
Notwithstanding the traffic around Los Angeles, we had a wonderful experience viewing the Best of Los Angeles with our local guide, Emily. She was very knowledgeable about the city and the sights that we saw. Emily was very flexible and tailored e tour to meet our needs. If we were asked to recommend a guide around Los Angeles, we wouldn't hesitate, Emily would be at the top of the list. Well worth the money.
Jill SerresUnited States
Wonderful day! Emily was very knowledgable about historical facts and trivia. We enjoyed the variety of sites during our tour. We really liked that we had control over spending a little more time at some places and less at others, depending on what we were most interested in. I would highly suggest Emily and this tour to anyone who wants a tour with a little bit of everything. Great day!
Lisa McCluskeyUnited Kingdom
Emily was fabulous. Very informative, had done her research to show us locations for places that we wanted to see and threw in a few suprises too. We had a lovely day and I can highly recommend her.
Michael TeeNew Zealand
This tour was absolutely fantastic thanks to our guide Emily. Emily was a wonderfully friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide who really looked out for us made this tour so memorable. Emily was a great driver, we felt totally relaxed and at ease with her behind the wheel. We took in all the scheduled stops on the itinerary plus some bonus stops. Our request for extra stops was accommodated with a smile and patience. We did not want this tour to end, it was that enjoyable. Emily, you're a star!

My daughter, granddaughters and I spent a delightful day with Emily. In 8 hours, she managed to give us a comprehensive, enjoyable and fun day for all of us. She took us everywhere and had wonderful stories to share. She was perfectly attuned to every one's needs and gave us options along the way. Each one of us gave her 5 stars!
Emily was very knowledgeable and accommodating. She was there to meet us on time and dropped us off as requested. A great day out
Joanna DuftyUnited Kingdom
Excellent, interesting and enjoyable. Emily was great and went to so much trouble to make sure we had a good time. It was a marvellous end to our holiday. Thanks to her, and everyone at Tours by Locals.
Emily is a pleasant, and knowledgeable guide. She took us to anywhere we were requested her. We are impressed that she could drive without GPS but still had a good precision. She is always polite and a good driver. She could get along with young kids very well and prompt for all picking up appointments through out the trips and gave good advise. We are enjoy having her as our guide again next visit and will recommend to our friends if they want a guide for LA or San Francisco area.
What an awesome day we all had, Emily was lovely and for informative with loads of information and history of L.A and surrounding areas. Would defiantly do another tour with emily if ever i return to L.A. Thanks again for an Great Day we both had the best time. Brad and Jason, Australia

Emily was great. We came to LA for the day with our kids and she showed us a great time. She was patient with the kids, able to gear the day for what was best for them. They really liked her. She was very professional and knowledgeable as well. I would have no problem recommending her to my friends.
Gail BassettUnited States
Emily arrived promptly and was very knowledgeable about the Hollywood area. I look forward in retaining her services for my family reunion as our tour guide.
The tour was a fantastic way to kill the hours on an 8 hour lay over in LA . Emily was a very pleasant young lady , was very knowledgable of the area and the history . Would definately recommend a tour buy locals. We saw all the major sites of LA in a 4 hour tour Thankyou to Emily
Kevin MurdockUnited Kingdom
Emily was very friendly and informative and showed her wealth of knowledge and experience of LA history and its attractions. She was accommodating to our needs and we saw everything on our "to see list" as well as some hidden gems that Emily suggested. Everything was done at the right pace and never felt rushed.

Emily is extremely knowledgeable and showed a passion for her profession. She was easy talk to, very friendly, and dedicated to doing her job well. I would recommend her to any of our friends who want to learn more about the history of LA.
Dear Emily! Thank you very much for those two wonderful tours you made up for us! They were incredible! We enjoyed every minute of both our trips and even bad weather couldn't spoil anything. You helped us to visit many places we wouldn't be able to get to ourselves and we really appreaciate your patience))) Hugs from all of us (Irina, Julia, Elena, Lubov, Dina M. and Dina Z.)
Emily is an incredible guide who can tell everything about any place you ask! Thank you! Look forward to seeing you again!
Abigail ManekinUnited States
Emily was super helpful and accommodating. She worked with me to develop a great tour itinerary and even brought snacks! I very much enjoyed working with her.
Fantastic tour and guide. Very informative and relaxed. A great introduction to LA. Good mix of iconic LA sites and less touristy locations. Would totally recommend.
Mary KientzyUnited States
Emily was an OUTSTANDING tour guide. I LOVED the tour! She ia a lot of fun, very knowledgeable and very professional. It was my first time to Los Angeles and I am all ready looking forward to coming back. I will definitely book Emily again and again and again! For me, ToursByLocals, is the only way to go.
Emily was a great guide. She is a wealth of information and has a real passion for her city and its history. She has her own car which made it quick and easy to get about. I never would have seen so much of LA on my own. She has a very pleasant personality and I thoroughly enjoyed spending the day with her.
Emily was amazing, she went above and beyond. We saw so much in one day! When we come back we would love to do a different tour with her.

Jodi HendersonUnited States
Emily was great! It was our first time visiting LA and Emily really showed us the history and magic of the town. She was very agreeable and accomodating to our specific interests. Emily is knowledgeable about LA (including several hidden treasures) and made our trip to the City of Angels memorable. I would highly recommend her tour. Thanks Emily!
Thoroughly enjoyed the tour - Emily was very chatty and knowledgable and I would recommend her as a tour guide to anyone.
Barbara FranklinUnited States
Emily was a terrific guide in every way. In an email exchange she asked about our specific interests and identified places of architectural interest that we could see on our own. She arrived early to pick us up and managed the time well so that we could see as much as possible. It wasn't her fault that we stayed in the Getty too long to see everything that she had planned for us! Best of all, her art tour included the amazing Frederick Weisman Foundation, which even the guidebooks usually omit.
Emily was extremely helpful, she went well above what was expected from a tour guide. The tour explored each area that we expressed and more. Thank you and will be recommending to all my friends who visit LA!
Ginette Samsonhanmer, ON, Canada
My 2 girlfriends and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Emily.She went above and beyond to ensure we saw all that we had requested to see.She is a lovely person and you will enjoy her tour. We have all agreed that if we were to go back to LA, we would book another tour with Emily. Hi Emily! Ginette, Judy and Dorothy
Ann NoveyUnited States
I can not even express how glad we were to have found Emily!!! She was worth every penny and I actually wanted to pay her more! She gave us great suggestions on the best ways to get from one place to another and what things to do while in LA when we were not with her. She showed us everything we wanted to see plus lots of extras! It was fantastic!! I was sending pix back to my friends during our tour and they were all envious and now want Emily as their tour guide when in LA! Emily is the best!!!
Emily customized the perfect tour for me. She drove me around to every LA location I wanted to see and was so lovely and knowledgable. It was so fantastic I can't begin to describe. I'm so thrilled to have found her to help me create my holiday experience. Thank you sooo much Emily! Five out of five for sure. Couldn't be happier!
Would recommend Emily to anyone. Great personalised tour with an excellent guide. Thank you for showing us Los Angeles and for your hospitality.
Margaret ReynoldsUnited States
We had a wonderful day with Emily! She was friendly and fun, and always shared a lot of interesting information about our stops along the way. I booked the tour at the last minute, but Emily still took the time to learn about us and our interests so she could build in some fun surprises! This experience was a tremendous value for the money and we would definitely do it again. Thank you, Emily!!!
Emily is a very nice person and a very good guide. The best choice you can do. Thank again Emily ,Francesco and Rosarita
Emily has a fantastic knowledge of LA and it was great to have a local show us around some of the lesser travelled roads. Overall a good tour.
