It was a thrill for me to be able to spend a few hours driving around with Laura visiting homes primarily in the Silverlake and Los Feliz area designed by legendary architects like Schindler, Neutra and Lautner. Laura has an in-depth knowledge of the architectural history of the area and added so much to my knowledge and appreciation of the... More

My wife and I have enjoyed four tours with Laura. She and her husband have lived in Los Angeles for many years. She is formally trained in the History of Architecture and can relate the history of every structure on a tour. We have been on many architectural tours Charleston, San Francisco, San Antonio, Dallas etc. and have never had... More

I really enjoyed discovering things about a city i have lived in all my life. LA is a huge, and filled with alot of culture. So this was a easy way to spend some time being fascinated with a place i had gotten used to being around. The tour has a intimate feel about it, like you are hanging out... More

We went on this five+ hour tour visiting six buildings by Frank Lloyd Wright and his son Lloyd Wright. My husband lived in LA for years and while he had heard of these buildings and seen one or two, Laura provided so much insight and context to each building it gave both of us a good understanding of the influences...

We took an architecture tour of Hollywood and it was great! We have vacationed many times in LA but Laura helped bring many sites to life. We learned a lot about places we had been before, but didn't really appreciate until Laura shared the real story behind the buildings. Very worth it and great experience for myself and my teen...

I was worried my 2 little kids would be bored to death on this tour, but Laura our guide did a great job in teaching them the intricacies of LA architecture and along the way quizzed them to see if they could spot some recurring structural themes. Kids had fun and wife and I enjoyed the wealth of knowledge Laura... More

My wife and I both completed today an escorted tour of a number of buildings designed by Frank Gehry. Our tour was conducted by Laura, an architectural historian and founder of Arvhitectural Tours LA. Laura drove us to many of FG's buildings, including his own house, and provided us with in-depth details on his early professional architectural projects in Los... More

This is a wonderful experience and for anyone interested in architecture you can't go wrong with taking these 3-hour tours. We did the Hancock Park/Miracle Mile tour-well worth the cost!!

I would highly recommend this tour or any other tour arranged with Laura. Laura is very well informed and shared many interesting facts not only about the various houses on the tour but the neighborhoods and sites along the way. I would recommend this tour to both locals and visitors for an insider's journey though LA.

I gave this tour a rating of 5/5, but if I could have given it an even higher score, I most certainly would! Talk about phenomenal from beginning to end! Our 3-hour tour started in front of the Museum of Contemporary Art in downtown L.A. Laura greeted us and off we went. The tour van was very comfortable, and Laura... More
