What you'll do

Want to experience more of the real Los Angeles? On this tour you'll start the day in Hollywood and learn all about how and why the movie business first moved to this small town in the Wild West. There's a lot of history hidden in plain site in this most famous of neighborhoods and you'll learn about it all, as well as see the many iconic buildings that dot the storied Boulevard, including the Capitol Records Building, the Egyptian Theatre, the Dolby Theatre (home of the annual Oscars ceremony) and the famous TCL Chinese Theatre.

Next you'll take the subway to downtown - it's the fastest way to get there. This is where the city was founded in 1781 and it's the largest historic downtown of any major city in America. It has a lot of beautiful architecture, but it's definitely not a museum - it's the most dynamic and interesting part of the city (with the best restaurants and bars too). We also stop for lunch at Grand Central Market, one of the best places to eat in Los Angeles (and indeed the US). We finish the tour at the Wilshire Grand Center, the tallest building on the west coast of the US and a great place to get an overview of the city.

* Tour starts 10am daily, Pantages Theatre, Hollywood
* Metro travel included in ticket price

Meet your host, Damien

Host on Airbnb since 2016
  • Identity verified
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.
