Thoroughly enjoyed the downtown tour, specifically because of the mix of seeing building styles and learning the history of the area. Bradbury Building, Angels Flight, Grand Central Market, and so much more. Many in-between sites were shown that I would have otherwise never known about. After 2.5 hours I was ready for the walk to be over but overall it... More

I went on the Art Deco tour. Our guides (two--one in training) were great guys and very knowledgeable. We saw a variety of buildings--including the interiors of some--and learned a lot about the architectural history of DTLA and of Art Deco. It was really enjoyable and educational. I wished I could have also done one of the other tours, but... More

We had an event in LA on Monday, so we made a weekend of it. We've been to LA countless times but never without an agenda. Took the historic downtown tour on a whim and ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT. Very knowledgeable guide showed us hidden gems we never would have seen on our own. Amazing buildings and amazing history. So worth... More

We recently did two tours with LA Conservancy and we have learned so much about this city from our tour with them. The Broadway Theater & Commercial District is the most recent one we did and our guide (Gordon Johnson) did such a great job in helping us learning the history of LA by showing us those hidden places; pointing...

What a great way to spend 2 1/2 hours on a Saturday morning. I grew up in LA but never had a clue to the history of the buildings downtown. The interiors that you see, including the Central Library, Bradbury Building, and art deco Water and Power Building are just stunning. We finished in Central Market where we grabbed a... More

You may be like I am and have a fascination with the old movie palaces from the 1920s. Sure, you can tour the TCL (once Grauman's) Chinese Theater and pay $13.50 for the tour - though it is worth it too. Or you can pay to see a show at Pantages or the Wiltern or go to the Mayan night... More

This is a great organisation run bu volunteers, but I was a little surprised our guide wasn't enough of an enthusiast not to know the details of the tour by heart. That said it is not costly and gives a very good insight into the history of downtown and takes you where you wouldn't know where to go and is... More

I just returned from an architectural tour of Los Angeles sponsored by UNLV (University of Nevada/ Las Vegas). One of the highlights was the L.A. Historic Downtown (Pershing Square) walking tour given by docents from the L.A. Conservancy. This tour is held on Saturdays at 10 a.m. and lasts 2 1/2 hours. Our docent was extremely knowledgeable, well organized and... More

Why is it we take walking tours all over the world, yet seldom discover hidden gems at home? We did the historic downtown walk on Saturday and really enjoyed it. It was fun to learn about the history of Los Angeles through some of her buildings. It was especially surprising to see the fabulous interiors of buildings built in the... More
