CENTRAL DOWNTOWN LA TOUR
Date(s) - 08/20/2023
1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Los Angeles is always changing and you’ll have a front row seat to witness that on our Central Downtown LA tour. Thought L.A. doesn’t have a downtown? It does and it’s the most dynamic and interesting part of the city. Many tourists are unaware of DTLA (as it’s known here), but Angelenos certainly know it and they’re voting with their feet, as every week hip new restaurants, bars, Apple stores, creative offices and apartment blocks open in the area. Many people don’t realize it’s also the best-preserved historic downtown of any major city in America (with some of the best architecture in the world, including many beautiful examples of the Beaux Arts, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, modern and post-modern styles).
During the tour you’ll see City Hall, the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Broad museum and take Angels Flight, before stoping for lunch at Grand Central Market, which is one of the best destinations in the U.S. for food, according to Bon Appetit Magazine, and has dozens of reasonably priced options. After lunch we visit several secret locations – meaning we can’t tell you more – which will totally change your whole perspective on LA. Join our Central Downtown LA tour and learn about this fascinating neighborhood, where the city was born.
You can combine this tour with The Real Hollywood Tour if you book both tours for the same day. If you do the guide will take you from Hollywood to downtown and all travel between and during the tours on the Los Angeles Metro is included. The two tours then merge to create one six hour tour of Hollywood and downtown, the two most historic parts of the city.
Our tours can sell out. If you cannot make a booking email us at [email protected], telling us when you want to do the tour and how many guests are in your party, and if we can squeeze you in we’ll let you know.
