L.A. is so big – how are you going to see everything in one day? Easy! Take a tour of Los Angeles with us. No breezing through on tour buses with a pre-recorded audio track playing (which is nearly always out of sync) – we’ll show you the best parts, the parts other tour companies won’t, and give you a feel for the real L.A. As an added bonus you’ll see seven different venues which have held the Academy Awards Ceremony on this tour.
We start your tour of Los Angeles in Hollywood (where else) and show you how and why L.A. became the center of the American entertainment industry. There’s a huge amount of fascinating movie history on the famous Walk of Fame, including the oldest house in Hollywood (where Charlie Chaplin’s kids went to school), the Capitol Records Building, the Egyptian Theater and the TCL Chinese Theater, and you’ll learn about it all.
Next we take the subway (yes, we do have one in Los Angeles) to downtown. Downtown is the most dynamic part of the city – it’s also the best preserved historic downtown of any major city in the U.S. It’s where the city started and there are a huge number of iconic buildings there (including City Hall and the Walt Disney Concert Hall). By this time you’ll be hungry, so we pause your tour of Los Angeles for lunch at one of the top food destinations in America – Grand Central Market.
After lunch the tour continues in DTLA, then we head to Santa Monica on the Expo Line. It’s a lovely way to travel through the West Side. Once in SaMo we’ll give you a tour of the area (including the famous Santa Monica Pier), before finishing your tour of Los Angeles at 3rd Street Promenade, a perfect place to watch the sun set while enjoying cocktails and dinner. By now you’ll have had a real experience of L.A. and made some great memories to take home with you.
