I was referred to Laura by a past customer and I was so happy I was! Even though I wanted to focus on mid-century style architecture, Laura made sure that I saw and learnt a lot about the Silver Lakes area and history that was really interesting. From the start I felt right at home with Laura and her knowledge... More

We toured our own city and had a fantastic time seeing things we never knew existed. Laura is a wealth of knowledge and so very nice to tour with. I highly recommend this tour to locals and tourists alike.

It has been two years since our last visit to LA, and we knew this trip had to include another tour with Laura during our return trip. Laura is knowledgable, accommodating, and enjoyable. Thank you, Laura, for sharing your love for great architecture and a great city with us!

Laura is a great guide. Very knowledgable, very personable. She's an architecture historian who really knows LA. I highly recommend this tour.

My beautiful fiancee' booked a tour as a birthday gift, and I was a little skeptical- I mean, as a football/car/MMA/motorcycle lovin' guy, I have never had much more than a passing interest in architecture. "That's a cool building," was about as far as my attention went. With Laura at the wheel providing an amazing amount of information, I REALLY... More

A couple of weeks before our trip to LA we had seen an exhibit on LA architects and architecture called "LA Overdrive" at the National Building Museum in Washington, DC. When we found Architecture Tours LA on Trip Advisor, we thought it would be nice to be driven around Hollywood and Beverly Hills to see some of the buildings we... More

I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting L.A. A friend of mine booked this tour during my last visit. We took the Hollywood tour and it was immensely interesting. Laura was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Absolutely great to be driven around and given history about places that I would have otherwise passed by had I been driving. I can't... More

Laura's tours are fantastic! She is extremely knowledgeable and makes the tours fun. I had a friend visiting for the weekend and we took the Hollywood Tour. I had taken the tour several years ago, but really enjoyed it the second time! Laura's tours are great for locals and visitors alike!

I'm so glad that these tours exist and that Laura has taken the time to share her huge knowledge of some of LA's incredible buildings! My partner and I don't have any special knowledge of architecture but we love looking at interesting and attractive buildings - particularly houses. We wanted to explore LA's incredible 20th Century architecture and some of... More

I am an architecture fanatic - I mean a huge one, and I was looking for a way to see L.A. buildings without a car. That's right; I said car-free in Los Angeles. It is possible to get around by public transport, but it is not possible to cover the breadth of L.A. architecture on your own even with a... More
