We did the 1.30 walking tour of downtown LA with Phil. Very knowledgeable and excellent tour. Would definitely recommend this tour. Things to note - it’s a reasonable walk on the tour as downtown is spread out and footpath is uneven so take care.

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.

We have become groupies of DTWT! Every walk we’ve been on has been well organized, informative, with lovely knowledgeable guides. This one of Echo Park was on streets we’ve walked so many times, but it gave us a much broader picture of the area’s history....More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
