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 !

Amazing tour -- Laura knows so much, and makes it all so interesting! I would definitely recommend to anyone interested in Architecture or Urban Design, and hope to take another tour when I return to LA.

I come to Los Angeles once a year for a medical appointment. The last three years, i have taken a tour with Laura. This year it was the Beverly Hills/West Hollywood tour. This is not a 'homes of the movie stars' tour, although she did point out a few famous names. What you get is a real understanding of the... More

This tour features about 20 minutes of information spread over 2 painful hours. Worse yet, our tour guide was extremely crabby and bored. The guide mindlessly repeated the same generic, obvious facts about the Los Angeles area. The view from the tour van was so obstructed that we could see very little. We were given virtually no opportunities to even... More

Laura was a friendly and knowledgeable host who explained LA history in between taking us to the houses designed by Wright and his son. It was a fascinating day. We recommend it to anyone with an interest in architecture or urban planning. The pit stop at the Beverly Hills Hotel and lunch at the Pacific Design Centre were added highlights.

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
