When I first moved to Pasadena I took a tour with this company and ever since I have been recommending them to my friends who visit the area, Kristin was our guide and she was very informative and a local expert on Pasadena's history and stories, we wish her the best with her business, we're sure she will go far!

As a group of 5 ladies, we spent a beautiful Saturday afternoon with Kristin. She gave a wonderful, interesting, informative and fun tour. She met us promptly at the designated time and location. She transported us in her very clean and comfortable vehicle. We were shown the beautiful and interesting architecture, given history and back stories of the area. Kristin... More

I thought I knew Pasadena as I have lived here for over 34 years and have been actively involved in organizatons, commissions and non-profits dedicated to the history, traditions and historic preservation of our wonderful City. Was I ever mistaken. An afternoon with Kristin at the wheel, navigating and demonstrating her vast knowledge was a total eye opener. This is... More

Look no further. You can't beat this. Book a tour with PTC. Kristin gives exceptional tours. She is knowledgeable, quick, fun, and real. She has a wealth of information and stories that will bring Pasadena to life. Her tours are informative, insightful and warm. You will see Pasadena in a way that you will enjoy and remember. Just do it!

After three-weeks of leaving over six message looking for availability to serve a private party, I give up. Obviously, Kristen sees this more as a hobby than a business (not only are calls not returned, there is no email on their web site!). Too bad there is not more competition for Pasdena tours. Looks like there is so much demand... More

Go out of your way to experience the Pasadena Tour Company's outstanding "total immersion experience" into the artistic treasure trove of craftsman (and other style) homes that grace Pasadena. The PTC owner Kristin personally conducts these tours in a very comfortable 15 passenger minibus with large windows. For several years, she has personally researched county records and old newspaper articles... More

You know the group tours, the ones that are boring, boring, boring! This one is NOT BORING! This is the best tour we have been on because Kristin loves her job. Yes, you can tell she does because she is enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and makes the whole tour really enjoyable. The van is so comfortable with large windows so you can... More

This tour of the architectural buildings and homes of Pasadena was truly interesting. The tour guide, Kristin, was extremely knowledgable and had so many really interesting facts and history of the different local architects, their styles, and the histroy behind their popularity. We saw many different neighborhoods in a very comfortable van, with our very entertaining guide. Kristin knew lots... More

I've lived in the Pasadena area much of my life, and I still learned so much on the tour. Kristin, our tour guide, was knowledgeable and fun--it was a great morning. Can't wait to do the Hollywood tour next!

While visiting Los Angeles/Pasadena in January, my husband and I decided to take a tour Hollywood and the surrounding area that our hotel concierge suggested. The tour company that provided the tour was Pasadena Tour Company. Our guide was Kristen, and she was amazing. The tour vehicle was very comfortable and roomy. Kristen wore a headset and talked to us... More
