About Us

The AUTHENTIC Experience

 Authentic Tours is a unique ONE of a kind opportunity to see Los Angeles the only way you should. Who wants to see the same watered down, tired, Hollywood version you get from all of the other tour guides. Forget those buses full of strangers, with some struggling actor, reading scripts of cheesy jokes. Hang out with a real born and raised local and get a real family style treatment. See the town with the personal touch only AUTHENTIC tours can offer. 

Los Angeles the way you want it.

  See the city the way you want to experience it. LA's real landmarks and things that make the city both famous and infamous. The best mom and pop spots for foodies, culture, fashion, and art. This tour will take you to the places you've only heard about or seen on tv. You can even choose to see places most locals won't go, even if they do know about them.   

One of a kind experience

 This ART tour is the ONLY one of it's kind. It actually takes artists out to paint walls. With this VIP Pass you can choose from several locations to paint including the World Famous Venice Art Walls. Enjoy a day at the beach with a beautiful background and the unique boardwalk full of personalities and local artistic energy. You can also choose to paint two of the most notorious areas of Los Angeles. Skid Row and South Central are as raw and uncut as the city gets. Two of the least likely places you'd ever find other tourists. You can get a real experience no other tour can provide.

Our story

  As avid travelers, we would go into big cities and always end up seeing the same old boring things. We never felt we got the insiders view to these culturally rich places we would travel to. The tour guides seemed to be a waste of money, as they would take us to the same places, we could of easily gone to ourselves. It was from here that our vision and dream was inspired from. We made a commitment to give each and every person a much more personal experience. Our goal was to meet and treat people more like friends than just a paying customer. We understand what it is to network, build, and create a different kind of experience for people visiting where we call home.  

Upcoming Public Events

   If art shows, festivals, live painting by artists, or other kinds of unique live shows is what you're looking for, we can help with that too, depending on scheduled events. If it's going on in the city, we can get you there. (additional fees may apply)  

Testimonials

The TMZ Tour meets Training Day! Our trip took us to places we never thought we'd see, because they just don't show up on maps. The food stops were the real deal. The way I look at LA will never be the same.  Carlos Lopez AZ


I'm from Los Angeles and been living here most of my life. This tour took me to see a part of the city I never saw, up close and more so couldn't imagine ever having that kind of access. I even made some new friends in Skid Row. Without a doubt an eye opening and life changing experience.  Jesse Morales Whittier CA

We went on the VIP Art Tour and it was dope! Painted two different spots and got some great pics. They don't lie when they say they treat you like family. Met up the next day for lunch (no extra charge) and got an unexpected bonus access to a third spot to paint. Mike Brice San Francisco
