Trish is an amazing person and super fun. I had the opportunity to explore the nightlife of Los Angles with her and it was a delight. She has great knowledge about the history and the culture of the city. She also recommended me with some amazing go-to must-visit food places. We had an amazing conversation and it was the best time spend.

I enjoyed getting to share foodie and travel ideas with you during our drive. I wish you continued safe travels and good eats, and I hope our paths cross again! Warm wishes from your new friend in LA, Trish
My husband was skeptical about organising a Tour Guide but after our day with Trish he stated it was a great decision. As a family of 3 we all found Trish to be very professional and was exactly what I hoped we would find in a Tour Guide. Trish picked us up in her comfortable SUV and from that moment on filled us in on all there was to know about LA as we completed our Custom Tour. Trish was also very accommodating and we were able to make some last minute changes to our Tour on the day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Helena, Thank you for choosing me to be your family's guide for your day in Los Angeles. I am so pleased your husband thought it was a good decision! For any travelers, when time is limited in a new city, letting a local guide navigate the traffic and plan the day let's you hit all the points of interest. And one of the best things about a customized tour is making those last minute changes. Thank you kindly for taking time to share your thoughts here on TBL. Warm wishes from your new friend Trish

Trish gave my family of 6 a fabulous day in LA! She was knowledgeable, prepared, flexible, and most importantly, fun! Trish customized the entire day to our wants and needs... stopping for whatever we wanted to see and do.

She had great recommendations for dinner the night before our tour and was spot on! We highly recommend her services!

We're 2 Wisconsin women who weren't about to rent a car in L.A. & didn't want to spend hundreds on cab fare. We had specific things we wanted to see, but couldn't find any tours that included everything we wanted. We lucked out when we did a Google search and found Trish! I cannot say enough wonderful things about her! She did a ton of legwork ahead of time to make sure our tour ran smoothly. She is professional, responsive & a ton of fun! I cannot recommend her enough! Thanks so much Trish!!
