About this event

Los Angeles is always changing and you’ll have a front row seat to witness that on our Central Downtown LA tour - it’s the most dynamic and interesting part of the city. Angelenos certainly know that and they’re voting with their feet, as every week hip new restaurants, bars, Apple stores, creative offices and apartment blocks open in the area. Many people don’t realize it’s also the best-preserved historic downtown of any major city in America (with some of the best architecture in the world, including many beautiful examples of the Beaux Arts, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, modern and post-modern styles). Join our Central Downtown LA tour and learn about this fascinating neighborhood, where the city was born. We also stop for lunch at Grand Central Market (one of the best places in the U.S. for food, according to Bon Appetit Magazine).

You can combine this tour with The Real Hollywood Tour if you book both tours for the same day. If you do the guide will lead you from Hollywood to downtown (for this tour) and all travel between and during the tours on the Los Angeles Metro is included. The two tours then merge to create one six hour tour of Hollywood and downtown, the two most historic parts of the city.

Our tours can sell out. If you cannot make a booking email us at info@thereallosangelestours.com, telling us when you want to do the tour and how many guests are in your party, and if we can squeeze you in we’ll let you know.
