Best way to experience LA
Jenny_A, Sep 2023
Chris was a great host, keeping us all entertained with LA stories (past and present) on the 2 hr hike. Stunning scenery with the promise of the wonderful Griffith Observatory at the end.
Awesome hike and Damian was great!
Erika_R, Feb 2023
Damian is a fantastic guide. He was very knowledgeable about the history of the area and his love for the city and its story really comes through. We weren’t sure about doing a walking tour but we were so glad we did. It was a highlight of our time in LA and we learned some really interesting things about the history and development of the area. Will definitely recommend the tour to friends heading to LA.
Best Experience!
Rebecca_C, Sep 2020
Our guide provided the best hiking experience. His knowledge of L.A. history was fascinating regarding California, Hollywood, the buildings, sign, and people. The view was amazing. Small groups and easy to follow directions, meeting place, and parking. We will book again and take more tours with this company!
