Los Angeles is always changing and you’ll witness it on our Central Downtown LA tour. Thought LA doesn’t have a downtown? It does and it’s the most dynamic, interesting part of the city. Many tourists don't know of DTLA (as it’s known here), but Angelenos do and they’re voting with their feet, as every week new restaurants, bars, Apple stores and apartment blocks open here. Many people don’t realize it’s also the best-preserved historic downtown of any major city in America (with great architecture). Join our Central Downtown LA tour and learn about the neighborhood where the city was born. We also stop for lunch at Grand Central Market (one of the best places in the U.S. for food according to Bon Appetit). * Tour starts 1pm daily. * Children under 12 y.o. do not have to buy a ticket. * There’s a big range of food options and all types of diet can be accommodated (Vegetarian, Vegan etc). * 5% of ALL our revenue goes to Climate Cents, a local climate change organization.

I had a few friends come from out of town and we took a tour by Terry. Though I've spent majority of my adult life in LA, I've never done a tour and so thankful I did! I learned so much about the city I live in in the 3hrs we were all together. Not to mention a great walk!
