What you'll do

Los Angeles is always changing and you’ll have a front row seat to witness that on our Central Downtown LA tour. Thought L.A. doesn’t have a downtown? It does and it’s the most dynamic and interesting part of the city. Many tourists are unaware of DTLA (as it’s known here), but Angelenos certainly know it 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). * Tour starts 1pm daily, Civic Center Metro Station, Grand Park * Children under 12 y.o. gain free entry

Damien

I'm the founder of The Real Los Angeles Tours. What makes us different from other tour guides and operators? For one thing I travel a lot myself, often for months, and I know what I want to do when I get to a new city - I want to learn its history and experience its food and culture. I want to get a real feel for the place. Long before Airbnb came onto the radar of many travelers, in 2013, we were the first company to offer daily tours of DTLA. We're also pioneers of the LA in a Day metro and walking tour, covering Hollywood, downtown and Santa Monica. When Airbnb held the Open LA conference to launch Experiences who did they choose to show attendees LA? Us. I have three guides who work with me: Vicky, Silvie and Chris. We look forward to meeting you and being the highlight of your trip. Instagram: @thereallosangelestours
