Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Your tour starts in the Downtown Los Angeles Arts District, easily accessible from throughout the Los Angeles area. Following a circular route, you will get up close and personal with urban artwork of every kind imaginable. Including traditional and modern graffiti styles, building size fine art murals, secret urban sculptures, wheatpaste and stencil art, and maybe even an elusive yarn bomb. And you'll experience it all from the actual artists! These aren't tour guides that know a little about art. These are the actual artists who have been creating works of beauty for years, and are happy to be sharing their vast knowledge with you.

    The tour moves at a relaxed pace, taking regular stops at the different pieces of art. It is appropriate for art fans and urban adventurers of all ages.

    My husband and I did the graffiti tour in Jan 2020 and it was interesting, but I do feel it could have been better - we do a lot of walking tours and I just felt this was a bit lacking and not really any more than walking around looking at the art which you could do yourself

    This tour is not worth it. The tour guide Galo was awful and after 10 minutes of hearing his ''speech'' our group of 4 deceided to leave and go discover on our own which was and is a much better option. You can walk at your own pace,stop when you want and stay as long as you

    Galo was the tour guide and he was sooo negative in the first 15 minutes of the tour that my husband and I decided to just scrap it and do the Samskara experience instead. This tour was only $12 per person--so it wasn't a big of a deal, but it was disappointing. The tour guide
