See the real LA!
Did a full day walking tour of LA. Our tour guide Damien was very knowledgeable and passionate about giving us all information in a clear and concise way. The tour was very well planned and organised and was not tiring.
We did the Hollywood tour and loved it! The tour was at a great pace and the guide (Vicky) was very knowledgeable and made the tour fun. Thank you
Booked the Wild Wild West To Now tour, our guide Terry was great! (He) was very knowledgeable and the tour brought us to some really cool DTLA areas we've never been to which was so much fun! Definitely worth the reasonable price. THANK YOU TERRY!
We had an Amazing Murder, Mystery & Ghost tour with Damien and Dante... thank you very much from Italian Girls... very interesting and funny… absolutely recommended!
My boyfriend and I took the Heart of Hollywood Tour and had a wonderful experience with Stuart. Really helpful for personal questions, funny, full of knowledge and a passion for Hollywood. Can't recommend this enough!
Angela took us inside some beautiful Broadway theaters, told us about LA history and was very enthusiastic about her city. The great thing was that she actually took us inside the buildings. Plus after the tour we went for the 35cent cocktails! Great tour and great guide!
I did the Historic Core Tour!!! It was an awesome walking tour and very informative even for this Angeleno!! I am downtown daily and drive past this area and never knew the history of various locations of the city!! This provides that!!
My son and I booked and completely enjoyed a private tour. We had a wonderful evening! Damien took us on a fun, informative tour. My son loves photography, and Damien did not disappoint, as he took over 300 photos!

SOME THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN BOOKING
First think about what you want to get out of your visit here. Then bear in mind that all our tours complement each other, so to have the best experience and to really get an understanding of L.A. consider doing different tours. Think we’re just saying that because we want you to do as many of our tours as possible? Think again! L.A. is a huge city, with a lot of history and a lot of things going on right now. If any tour company tells you that by doing just one tour you’ll see “all of the best of L.A.” or “all you need to see in L.A.” they’re lying! It’s just not possible. So, with that said, ask yourself the following:
Need to make the most of your time here and see as much of the city as possible?
We designed our LA in a Day tour just for you. You’ll see Hollywood, spiritual home of the U.S. entertainment industry, downtown (so you can get a handle on L.A.’s history) and Santa Monica, because… well it’s Santa Monica and it’s beautiful.
Always dreamt of experiencing L.A. beach culture?
There’s no better option than our year round Santa Monica and Venice Bike tour. Why is it year round? Because the weather here is almost always perfect for this amazing tour. Also by using a bicycle you can see so much more of the area.
Love movies and always wanted to see the real Hollywood?
The Real Hollywood tour is exactly what you’re looking for. The stars’ houses tour won’t tell you why and how Hollywood became the movie capital of America – our tour does just that and much, much more.
Into architecture and food and really want to learn the history of Los Angeles?
Check our downtown tours, LA: Wild West to Now and Central Downtown LA. DTLA, as it’s known here, is the biggest historic downtown in the U.S. and L.A.’s hippest neighborhood. If you don’t see it you can’t say you saw Los Angeles!
Love hiking and nature and want to explore some of the great parks we have here?
The Mount Hollywood Hike is just the ticket for you. Mount Hollywood is in Griffith Park, one of the largest urban parks in the world and a surprisingly unspoilt wilderness. From the top you can enjoy some of the best views of Los Angeles.
Enjoy murder/mystery and horror movies?
You’ll LOVE our DTLA Murder Mystery Ghost tour. We even go into some haunted hotels (and have cocktails) on this noir investigation of the dark underbelly of the city of angels.
Got a stop over at LAX and want to make use of this fantastic opportunity?
We have specially designed LAX Layover tours just for you. We’ll make all the necessary arrangements so you can relax, experience the city and get back for your flight refreshed and ready to go.
Love to do one of these tours, but want to have the guide all to yourself? Or can’t find a tour to fit your schedule?
Book a private tour! We can almost certainly organize a tour for whenever it suits you to do it. We promise you and your group will have an interesting and fun time with our great guides.
Whatever you want to do here, if you’re looking for an authentic experience of Los Angeles, we have the perfect tours for you. And remember after your first booking we’ll give you 10% off each subsequent booking. So what are you waiting for?
SOME OF OUR TRIPADVISOR REVIEWS
LA has so much more than movie stars to offer and the Real LA tour shows you that in a very accessible way. Damien was full of interesting stories about the birth of LA, how it grew and the people that influenced its development (often with a few lucrative deceptions). Highly recommend the tour and wish we would have had time for a second one in Hollywood.
We took the bike tour which starts out in Santa Monica, bikes along the beach to Venice Beach then passes through the Venice canals and Abbot Kinney before heading back. We loved this tour! Sylvie was great, the tour was informative and fun. We were the only ones on the tour that day, which was awesome, making it casual and more intimate. It was for sure one of the highlights of our few days in LA. I’m very glad that we found this tour company and would, without a doubt, fully recommend them (and this particular tour) to anyone.
Great tour company! Damien was our guide, he did an excellent job walking us through the history of Hollywood, while adding in a few free laughs along the way. Would definitely recommend this company to anyone, great service with more than reasonable prices, beats the bus tours, hands down, any day!
My boyfriend and I did the Real Los Angeles Tours all day tour with Stuart. He was so great! Very passionate about LA and very entertaining! I liked that we saw different areas during the day – downtown, Hollywood and Santa Monica. We didnt have a lot of time in Los Angeles, so we had to make the most of it. I had heard downtown could be a bit sketchy – but it isnt at all. It was actually the highlight of our trip to the city of angels. If we come back to to LA we’ll definitely do another tour with these guys. Thanks so much Stuart!
