I took the Bev Hills/Hollywood and Mid City/Hancock tours in Jun 2015 and the Silver Lake tour in Feb 2017. I enjoyed all 3 tours. Laura tells you about buildings designed by well known architects as well as those by lesser known ones. Her knowledge is amazing. She is friendly and easy to talk to. Actually you don't need to...

My girlfriend and I live in Los Angeles, and find ourselves Downtown all the time. While we've enjoyed the bars, restaurants, and protests, we've never learned much about the architecture. I was thrilled to find that Laura offers Architecture Tours of various LA neighborhoods, and Downtown was among them. After reading other glowing reviews, I decided to buy the tour... More

Laura runs personalized tours for individuals or very small groups in her van. Laura is an architect historian and it shows! She has both historical and personal knowledge of the properties (and some of the owners) and their stories. I left feeling much more connected to LA than I otherwise would have. Because the tours are small, you can ask... More

I am so glad that I learned about Laura and her tours on TripAdvisor. I went on the Silver Lake tour, which had some great Midcentury Modern buildings. I called to check availability, and Laura answered my call right away and provided some additional details. Laura was a friendly and knowledgable guide and provided a great "sense of place" for...

I found Laura's company via the internet from our snowy home in Minnesota and when we joined her on the Silver Lake neighborhood tour in LA recently, her wonderful tour was all that I hoped it would be and much more. We learned so much while traveling Silver Lake's streets and Laura combined her well-honed teaching methods with lots of... More

My husband is an architect and I'm obsessed with mid-century architecture so we decided to do the Silver Lake tour. Laura was amazing! She is an architectural historian and very well informed. Not only did she show us some of the area's outstanding architectural works, she also shared interesting stories about the architects themselves that neither one of us had... More

In December last year a friend & I took 3 of the Architecture Tours LA & I must say they were brilliant. I am an architect & was visiting from London, my friend lives just outside LA & is not an architect but she was just as pleased with the tours as I was. I saw so many famous buildings... More

My wife and I have spent years discovering our favorite architecture in the United States - first we were mesmerized by Frank Lloyd Wright but then our interests expanded to modern architecture. We spent two fabulous days with Laura exploring what Los Angeles has to offer in architecture and it was the best two days we could have imagined. Laura... More

We had a terrific time on this architectural tour of Silver Lake. Our guide was very informative and took us to locations that would have been impossible to find on our own. We were able to get out and walk for sections of the trip and come up close to some amazing historical houses. It was one of the highlights... More

So much I did not know about the History and Architecture of Pasadena . I now love Pasadena more than ever. Laura had every question answered with solid details and amazing amounts of information every mile along the way . I want to do the Downtown Tour next !
