During the COVID-19 crisis, LA Art Tours is generously hosting virtual tours. I attended Galo and Majella's "Arts District Graffiti and Mural Tour," which is a great way to spend 80 minutes while sheltering at home. Over the past few months, I've done several virtual tours given by various tour guides, museums, national parks, etc., and this tour was one of my favorites. Galo is a terrific host. I just emailed several friends to recommend this tour. I will certainly join future virtual events as LA Art Tours brings new virtual tours online. I look forward to attending LA Art Tours in-person after the pandemic. Thank you! Highly recommended.

My husband and I did the graffiti tour in Jan 2020 and it was interesting, but I do feel it could have been better - we do a lot of walking tours and I just felt this was a bit lacking and not really any more than walking around looking at the art which you could do yourself anyway. They need to add more value (more history, stories etc) I feel.

As it states, don't be put off by the last two reviews. We had a great tour with Galo, as the guy wants his name splwt correctly, this wasn't an issue for us. Galo, artist, local, knows his stuff and general funny guy made this tour for me. Beautiful pieces around the area, Galo knew their story and could give additional interesting blurb. I loved his sense of humour. So I recommend go, enjoy some beautiful street art, have a couple of hours with a real artist/local and get out there.

This tour is not worth it. The tour guide Galo was awful and after 10 minutes of hearing his ''speech'' our group of 4 deceided to leave and go discover on our own which was and is a much better option. You can walk at your own pace,stop when you want and stay as long as you want! Just adventure from street to street and if you see something interesting that seems far,don't hesitate to go and see it because you'll stumble upon many works along the way on the sidestreets and whatnot. Something that isn't allowed on the tour. Let your instinct guide you,you won't be disappointed!
