Did a full day walking tour of LA. Our tour guide Damien was very knowledgeable & passionate about giving us all the information in a clear & concise way. The tour was very well planned & organised & was not tiring.
We did The Real Hollywood tour & loved it! The tour was at a great pace & the guide (Vicky) was very knowledgeable & made the tour fun. Thank you!
Stuart was so knowledgeable & was worth the day with him. I had been to LA multiple times before but this is the first time I had taken a tour – so thrilled to have this experience with my mom & sister. I would recommend this tour again & again.
We had an amazing DTLA Murder Mystery Ghost tour with Damien & Dante… thank you very much from the Italian girls… very interesting & funny… absolutely recommended!
This tour was awesome! Stuart is very knowledgeable, likeable & fun. The stops on the tour were very interesting & I learned a lot. I’ve been on quite a few tours of this nature & this was one of my favorites – highly recommend!
Did a walking tour of LA (LA in a Day). Vicky started us off with the Hollywood tour & Damien (who is also the owner) was our guide for the rest of the day. The entire day was awesome, I suggest this tour. There isn’t that much walking, to be honest. It’s very fun!

Learn the history of LA
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). Join our Central Downtown LA tour and learn about this fascinating neighborhood, where the city was born.
During the tour we stop 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.
Combine this tour with The Real Hollywood Tour by booking both tours for the same day. Then the guide will take you from Hollywood to downtown, with travel on the Los Angeles Metro included, so you can experience and learn about the two most historic parts of the city on one easy six hour tour.
Our tours can sell out. If you can't 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.
