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.

  • 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!!

LAX Layover Tour

Private tour only!
From $250


2 miles
Perfect for stretching your legs


2-3 hours
You can do a lot in that time

Got a stop over at LAX? You’re probably not that excited as, let’s be honest, it’s not the most amazing place to hang out. So why not get out of the airport and do our LAX Layover tour? You’re in one of the greatest cities on earth and you have a wonderful opportunity to experience it. Why waste this chance?

For your LAX Layover tour we’ll arrange for your luggage to be looked after, we’ll get you a ticket for the LAX Flyaway shuttle bus, we’ll meet you when you get to Hollywood OR downtown and we’ll personally show you around Los Angeles. If you’re hungry we can also stop for some great Californian food – unless you prefer those food outlets at LAX (check here for a list of the great establishments you could be eating at if you do this tour)! When the tour’s over we’ll ensure you get back on the shuttle bus in plenty of time to make your flight and arrange for the return of your luggage. You’ll get back on the plane energized by your experience and with some great memories and photos from your amazing stop over.
