Description

Journey back in time to the olden days of the City of Angels with an enjoyable sightseeing tour of the city’s charming downtown. Take in the history of Los Angeles, explore unique landmark, and uncover vibrant squares with the help of an experienced guide.

With your local guide, meander along the city's bustling streets, hearing stories about its treasured past and uncovering the edifices that guided its evolution. Your first stop is the Grand Central Market, where you can see the cuisines and cultures of LA come together in a grand, colorful display that includes everything from spice vendors and cheese mongers to butchers and bakers.

Nearby, grab your camera and take some photographs of architectural masterpieces such as Bradbury Building, the Cathedral of Saint Vibiana, and structures throughout the Broadway Theater District. Stroll down Spring Street—otherwise known as the “Wall Street of the West”—a historical district featuring 23 towering financial structures. Return to Angels Flight but not before admiring the red brick walkway in St. Vincent's Court and gleaming skyscrapers in the Jewelry District.

Our guide, Phil, was outstanding. He was able to talk knowledgeably about the “then and now” buildings and architecture. He also talked to each of the 12 people in the tour and even provided directions to the airport using public transportation.
