Downtown LA Walking Tours!
Remember when I visited The Last Bookstore in Downtown Los Angeles? Walking a few blocks to get there, I was taken a back at how gorgeous & historic it felt to walk along those streets. I easily could have been in a well-loved city like Manhattan, I think sometimes people forget how much awesome history Los Angeles has to offer. Why pay big bucks for the theme parks & pricey attractions, when you can learn so much just walking through the neighborhoods?
Well, that’s what Downtown LA Walking Tours is all about. Downtown LA Walking Tours started in 2009 as a Sunday only service, which grew to weekends in 2014 and starting in 2015 is providing three daily guided tours of Downtown Los Angeles! Each two-hour tour tells a unique and passionate story about the history and culture of Los Angeles:
Explore, Visit, Tour, Experience the architecture, absorb the history, see the monuments and learn about the growth of Downtown Los Angeles through any of the following tours offered:
11:00 am – L.A.’s Beginnings – Witness the transformation of Los Angeles from a pueblo into a world-class City while learning how the neighborhood is continuing to grow into a cultural icon.
1:30 pm – Old & New Downtown L.A. – Experience the history of Los Angeles from its mirrored development in the early 20th Century to its eventual growth of unique landmarks.
4:00 pm – Downtown Architecture Tour – Stroll through the Financial District and Historic Core and watch the City’s commercial heartbeat and learn the details of the architectural wonders of the early and late 20th century.
Downtown LA Walking Tours also offers customized private tours for parties, groups or corporate events. Contact them and they will gladly work together to figure out the right itinerary for your special party and provide a great personalized tour experience. How perfect would that be for a school, field trip, or say, if you have a lot of family in town for a reunion or wedding? Show ’em how great LA is! 😉
Founded in 2009 by Neel Sodha. Neel previously volunteered at L.A. Union Station and realized locals and tourists alike were interested in exploring cultural monuments and learning the history of Downtown Los Angeles. The Company was formed in 2009 to fulfill the interest of those who wanted to learn more about Downtown Los Angeles. Neel has a strong passion for the Downtown community, attends local civic events, walks the streets each day and is constantly educating himself on the ever-changing neighborhood. Neel wants to teach his tour groups the history, witness the present changes and prepare themselves for the exciting future ahead. Tours are tailored for both tourists enjoying a few days in the City and for the local who has lived twenty plus years in Los Angeles. Each guest comes away learning something fascinating of the City of Angels!
