    Best experiences I have had in a long, long time.
    Went to LA for two weeks and had a wonderful time. Santa Monica & Venice Beach was so much fun with lots to see and do. I love the beaches, people watching and really enjoy all the activities. A must see. We did the LA tour and then went back on our own to explore some more. Highly recommend you do this.

    A great tour
    We did the Downtown LA walking tour with Damien. We saw and learned a lot and Damien took us to places that we wouldn't have seen if we were on our own - the library, the Biltmore Hotel to name a couple. We stopped for Lunch at Grand Central Market. Damien recommended Maccheroni Republic for dinner which was excellent! Highly recommend.

    Great snapshot of LA in a day ! ! If you are going to book a tour book this one !!
    We are a family of four from London staying in Anaheim and booked this tour as it gave us a a snapshot of the sights in LA in exactly what it says it does' LA in a day'. This is a perfect day trip, early start at 7.00am pick up from your hotel in Anaheim and then 12 hours of sightseeing and fun all for under $100 per person, great value. The tour bus is very comfortable and our tour guide/driver, George, was a bundle of energy and fun keeping us entertained and gave us a potted history of LA and its growth since the 1940's. George made the trip a pleasure for us with stops on route for lots of photo opportunities and great advice on where to eat and drink. We were dropped back at our hotel in Anaheim at 7.00pm ,great door to door service, great value for money, great fun if you want a snapshot of LA this company is the one to book.

    Great way to see the sights!
    This bike tour was a lot of fun as it covered all the main sights of Santa Monica and Venice Beach. Our guide Sylvie was knowledgeable and engaging, and ensured we were comfortable riding.

    Damian did a great job. Our 8-year old described it as being like in a museum but on the outside. Highly recommended!

    Tour cancelled last minute
    Trip was cancelled 10mins before departure(due to an unfortunate situation with the tour guide), and the tour operator did not have a backup plan. Seemed unprofessional to me. Not a good spot to be in, for a newbie in the city.

    Great tour of Downtown LA! Our tour guide was knowledgeable and very thorough
    Damien was a wonderful tour guide! We did the Central Downtown LA tour, and we were able to see many of the prominent spots in downtown. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the history of downtown and Los Angeles in general. My favorite stops were Bunker Hill, Angel's Flight, the Jewelry District, Grand Central Market, and The Intercontinental. Would highly recommend doing this tour if you want to learn about downtown LA and see some awesome spots :)

    LA in a Day with K
    K was our guide/ driver. We scheduled a 7 1/2 hour tour and she had us out for 10 hours. She made sure everyone saw what the brochure promised and then some. K added a personal touch to our tour by having music about California. She drove us around like she owned this town. She knew every short cut and was more pleasant dealing with traffic issues than anyone who we ever toured with in the past. K made sure we all saw what we expected, played trivia about LA and when we come back to LA we will take another tour with K. The hotel pick up was also a big plus for us. Thank you K for making our stay in LA unforgetable.

    LA TOUR WITH SONYA
    Loved my tour with Sonya! We did the Hollywood Blvd/Downtown/Santa Monica tour! She was very informative about the TRUE history of LA, including Art, Architecture, and Entertainment. It was so enjoyable and honestly made touring LA so easygoing and stress free. We didn’t have to worry about where to eat, where the nearest restroom was, etc. We got some insider information and got to visit places that we wouldn’t have seen on our own or even on a tour bus. It felt very personalized and intimate. 10/10 recommend.

    Fascinating DTLA tour with Sonya
    We enormously enjoyed our recent Downtown LA tour, guided by Sonya. We'd been visiting for a few days before tour and had a rough familiarity with downtown area but the tour added a lot of information and context that we never would have known about. Really fascinating stuff, a mélange of human and architectural history. On the practical side, Sonya provided an essential review of the food vendors in the Grand Market that made our lunch very enjoyable.

Highly recommend this tour! Guide Chris is very knowledgable on the history of LA and has clearly done extensive research. It’s clear he loves the city and its history and sharing about it. Perfect way to see downtown LA and its treasures at night. Very well done tour!

Chris was an excellent storyteller and filled his stories with interesting facts and commentary. I was really moved by his dedication to the craft as well as his ability to weave in context to help his guests understand not only the details of historical events, but also the larger societal pressures that led to those events.

I also appreciated Damien’s pinch-hitting for Chris until he could arrive. He shared Chris’ penchant for storytelling and commentary. Both made our small group feel safe and welcome in the imposing city.

It's crazy how much history L.A. has that I never heard of. I have been driving through these L.A. streets for years not knowing the history of what happened. Really great experience, I would recommend it if you want to know the history of L.A....

Vicki was a stellar tour guide! Her tales of the scariest dtla hotels were spine tingling. I especially enjoyed the ghost stories. Next time, I'd like more focus on ghosts than serial killers, but it was still a great tour.

Sonja was a great guide and an excellent story teller. The tour was relaxed and professional and it was a fun way to see part of LA I would otherwise probably not see. Well worth the trip.

This was an unbelievable trip for us! We love history and spooky tours and this was top notch. Chris was so knowledgeable, friendly and willing to help us find food and drinks! This is a great trip for couples and families. Lots of waking and a nice rest break for a half an hour for food and drinks. We would definitely do it again! So much info to take in. No one will be disappointed!

So I am on vacation friends decide to do the DTLA real Los Angeles Tour reserve 4 tickets after they promptly responded and said yes could squeeze in your.I arrive 15 min early per instructions.It says to go to Pershing Square across from Starbucks and look for a guy with their logo shirt.By the way never specify or have pic of what looking for n has a vague pic of stairs where your imaginary tour guide is..Oh even better as we are standing in meeting point there was mob of people but for outside ICP concert going on at the same time.So then I call up the company after all they were print when they knew I wanted to purchase tickets.But never not only did not give us your guide name pic of him or logo of even shirt.But they had noone answering the phones so I tried over n over Atleast four time till now half hour been standing there and your starts at six it's quarter after.So I email no prompt response.Finally I look at where first stop on tour is and it's the Biltmore and I get notifications that I have email they tell me oh yes your tour guide is in the bar at Biltmore right now.Ladies n Gents do u know what was happening at that bar a private memorial for Kobe Bryant God rest his soul.So I am getting more n more hot under collar call no answer email and say look basically now way your guide is crashing a private memorial gathering for a ghost tour he's not here they say well you can proceed to next stop each stop is 15 minutes. So I walk to next place 1 min to after the 15 mark n this old abandon hotel not in use and door open n matience guy says hello..I said yes did DTLA Ghost tours just come thru here this was there next stop on tour .No mam no way possible they stopped those tours haven't done them in years.I showed him and police officer I saw the tour schedule explain everything and they said it's seems Ma'am you got scammed.I walked the whole tour no tour ever in site asked all stop places at any point had they seen a group.No one had it didn't happen.So I got mad and took action took time stamped photos of whole tour spots n pic of bar at Biltmore where they said tour guide was .That was a memorial service .N I printed copies of emails and log of call history to prove number times I called n length to show they clearly could not of answered phone in length of time n spoke with me.Then with all that beside warning you folks on here was Better Business bureau I reported them to and put them on scam website.Bc. I told them I want 145.00 dollars returned on my card immediately and they have not returned my calls emails or credited money back n they knew I was having as they said communication breakdown by being lost on tour unable find guide.It may not seem like alot of money to be upset over .But we were looking forward to it.No I'm sorry or customer or people skills for that manner from company bad business morals n ethics.No calls or interaction after the problem n during makes red flags go up of scam.

We have been in contact with Debi regarding her situation. In the booking confirmation email there is a photo, a link to a google map marker and a description of the meeting point. Over a thousand guests have found the tour meeting point in this way and our other guests that night (6 of them in total) were there on time and did the tour as normal. Unfortunately Debi did not let us know that she couldn't find the guide until after the tour had already begun. We advise guests to be at the meeting point 15 minutes early – as you can see if you look at the tour description here on TripAdvisor. We also warn guests that if they are late they may miss the tour. Why is that? Because, by its very nature, a tour is mobile and once it's moving it is very hard to track down in a city like LA. The guide held the tour for 15 minutes to give Debi more time to find the meeting point. In spite of the fact that the office was closed by then we did get back to Debi to tell her to look for the guide at the Biltmore Hotel. Even though our stated policy is that there is no refund or exchange if guests fail to show up for their tour we did offer Debi a part exchange, but we’re yet to hear back from her.

This was an awesome evening downtown! Our tour guide was great, and we visited some really cool locations both inside and out. Getting to sit at the bars and have a drink at the places we just learned all the mysterious history about was an added perk! If you like mysteries, true crime, ghosts, or just want to see some nice architecture around the city, I would definitely recommend this!

Damien was a great tour guide! Great date night idea. Found the tour through Fever who did not advertise as a walking tour. Highly advise good walking shoes and a bottle of water.
Really enjoy true crime and this tour had A LOT of it. Had fun getting to explore the city and learn more of its history.
Thank you to The Real Los Angeles Tours team!
