We spent three days with Laura doing Hollywood, West Hollywood/Beverly Hills and Hancock Place/Miracle Mile tours. She is very knowledgeable about the history of the areas. This was the most enjoyable time that I have experienced in LA. The tours included time outside of the vehicle to get a better look at several venues. I highly recommend booking a tour... More

Laura's passion for LA and its architecture are real. She really is a living encyclopedia! While living in Silver Lake i decided to take the tour and came away having a great time but learning so much about the city that housed me.

Laura has such a passion for the houses shown during the tour. She really keeps you interested through the visit and gives you all the little infos that you won't find anywhere else. The house selection is great and they are explained in their time and cultural context. We were two Architects taking the tour. It is well worth it.... More

Laura is so much fun! The tours are a great way to see significant architectural sites and to learn about the cultural heritage of Los Angeles. Laura knows her history— get ready to be tested and driven around L.A. in a cozy and air-conditioned minivan.

Laura never disappoints. I did my third tour with her this week and loved every minute of it. She has a knack for sharing so many informative tidbits about the city's buildings and neighborhoods but not in a pretentious way. She is so easy to talk to and be with. I only had three hours to spare on a work... More

My company wanted to take an architectural tour of Los Angeles, and we are so happy to have found Laura at Architecture Tours LA! We enjoyed our tour so much that we have since taken two more tours. Laura is extremely knowledgable about Los Angeles and its history and made our tour so much more fun than we could have... More

This was the third tour we've been lucky to do with Laura and as always it was great. Laura seems to know everything about almost every building in LA and she's a great storyteller and passionate about her subject. This tour was the Downtown LA one and it was a special treat to go into the Bradbury building in addition... More

We chose this tour because we've lived in Los Angeles for almost 20 years and always wanted to get a better understanding of our city, but never knew where to start. We didn't want to join some tour that just took you to see 'celebrities' or visit the usual tourist sites. Laura was very informative and it was the most... More

This tour was really great. I highly recommend this tour for folks who love architecture, old and new, and the interesting history associated with these iconic buildings. Our guide/driver, Laura, did a great job. She kept us moving and held our interest. We can't wait to return to LA and take another one of her tours.

Had another great tour-this time we chose Downtown L.A. We saw some new buildings and some from the 19th century too. Who knew LA had such old buildings? The van was comfortable and with sunroofs too so we could see very well. Next time, another....
