Downtown LA walking tour

The walking tour was great. You get the full history and feel of the city. The architecture and stories behind the scenes were pointed out. Our guide, Cris is very nice and he knows what he is talking about. The tour is not hurried.

Good question. Check with the tour operator to see if they offer private tours for families in the later part of the afternoon.
