What you'll do

We will start the tour in the middle of DTLA’s exciting and bustling Financial District! It’s the perfect place to begin the tour as all the city’s metro train lines converge here for convenient access. From there, I will take us around the many unique neighborhoods that comprise Downtown LA from South Park, to the Fashion District, to the Historic Core. Along the way, I will point out Downtown LA’s most interesting new developments in addition to fun and interesting historical facts! Many people are pleasantly surprised LA actually has a "real downtown!"

Brigham

I've been giving walking/bus tours of Downtown LA since 2004! I’m very passionate about showing people what a hidden gem DTLA is, especially when most tourists view LA as just "Hollywood and the beach." For me, DTLA is so special because it's walkable, filled with great architecture, history, and culture. About a decade ago, I launched my blog "DTLA Rising,” which became the largest news blog about Downtown LA. My proudest moment came when I gave a Ted Talk on my passion for "Downtown LA rising" (check it out on YouTube!). Being a community voice through my blog, I am often quoted on other media outlets including: NY Times, LA Times, LA Weekly, etc. I'd love to share with you my passion for DTLA, so join me on this fun and informative walking tour!

Where you'll be

We will visit new and historic landmarks that have helped shape Downtown LA into the most exciting destination in Los Angeles! We will pop into a variety of locations, including: grand hotel lobbies, unique indie shops, rooftop bars with amazing skyline views, and other architectural gems. There's really no place in LA more exciting than what's happening right now in Downtown LA!

Availability

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 8 guests ages 18 and up can attend. Again, we will be doing a lot of walking and exploring the city, so although it is considered "light," expect to walk potentially a few miles worth of city streets. Nothing crazy by most people's standards!

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

This is a WALKING TOUR of Downtown LA's transformation into an exciting urban center! Be aware that we will be doing a lot of walking! So please wear comfy shoes and dress appropriately. LA can get pretty chilly during the winter months, surprisingly!
