This walking tour is a great way to see downtown LA and learn about its history. Highly recommend this tour for locals as well as out of town visitors. This is the second time we have done a tour with DTLA and both times the guides were outstanding!

A fact-filled walk from Union Station to Angels Flight - highly recommended both for locals and visitors! I have lived here for a few months and learned so much about the history of the area, and gained some great tips for future visits to local museums and theaters. Thank you
