Starting at Grand Central Market, you will explore the movie palaces of Broadway and the nightlife of Spring Street. Then head over to Olivera Street, the original camp of the Spanish settlers who founded Los Angeles. You'll see Union Station, Chinatown, and City Hall. You will meander through Grand Park, up to the cultural landmarks of Los Angeles, Disney Hall and the Broad Museum. Finally, you will stop by the magnificent Central Library and Pershing Square. Landing back at Grand Central Market, you will have earned the culinary delights that await.

We use 8-speed Pure Cycles, Bell Helmets and all our guides are Red Cross-certified. Your tour is appropriate for the casual bike rider because you ride slow and stop often; however, you will get a good 8-mile bike ride. With approximately 10 stops, you will hear history, movie lore and true crime tidbits not found in any guidebook.

Wonderful DTLA experience

A great tour to cover the highlights of DTLA. Jen was really informative, covering history and celeb's in our stops. A good mix of cycling and breaks - not too much for a non-cycler. I would definitely recommend, a must do when visiting LA.

Enjoyable & informative - must do in DTLA.

We had a wonderful time exploring DTLA. Saw lots of great sites, inside and outside of buildings we wouldn't have noticed without the assistance of our wonderful guide, Jen. Great coverage of the downtown area, and even tips for dinner and further places to explore...More

Highly Recommend

I took the Historic Core Tour and I was introduced to lots of history and cultures that DTLA carries. Lots of info. I highly recommend taking any of the tours, fun day all around. Grand Central Market was a lively spot for lunch too.

To be honest, I cannot answer this question. As far as I know, we only had one guide and only 3 people who were not hearing impaired. You may have to contact them and ask directly.
