This was a family affair, what aa charming gentleman who conducted the tour and so much information from the beginning to the end. We all loved the tour and our handsome guide. I most certainly will recommend this walking tour as we all are Seniors and had no problem at all with the walking. Thank you very much.

Excellent tour! Aaron was a great guide! Interesting and informative. Saw a variety of sites and learned a lot about local history. Even though it was hot, found shade in each location as we walked.

Great overview of the down town area, informative and very interesting. Our guide was great with offering advice on things to do and see around the area. Recommend this tour for repeat visitors to see a different side of Los Angeles.

I'm sorry to say this trip did not meet my expectations. The tour guide was eager and informed about his subject, but still the subject matter was too limited. I wanted to hear stories about real people and their experiences such as one would hear at the New York Tentement Museum. Instead I got a whirl of dates without meaningful context.
