Owner description: Providing daily guided walking tours of Downtown Los Angeles and its surrounding neighborhoods. We walk the City, step inside world-class monuments, tell stories, learn the history and experience the architecture of the City of Angels!

Walking downtown Los Angeles is the way to go, be it the famous Art Walk on the second Thursday of every month to simply bar hopping on starting at Flower and 6th. With enough fine dining and unique restaurants, you will have plenty to experience and make your visit one to remember.

Sorry to say this was a HUGE disappointment. Our guide had very little manners. She didn't introduce herself at start or ask where anyone was from. She didn't say how long the tour was or that she leaves us at the end with no way back. Luckily I'm from LA and was looking for a little more history. I knew the streets and could walk the 2 miles back on my own. If your not from LA THIS IS SCARY! A tourist asked for more information from her and she couldn't answer. SHE WAS FROM PENNSYLVANIA! I answered for her. Save your money and choose the LA conservancy tour , all of them are awesome. BTW, this is a review of the " Haunted LA tour, " only.

Our tour guides are a mix of Downtown residents, those who grew up in Los Angeles and individuals who recently relocated but love living in the City of Angels. Haunted Tales is a themed tour about the haunts of the City. We discuss architecture, culture and history on our daytime tours.

We've taken two of Downtown LA Walking tours: Old and New Downtown (led by someone who lived downtown) and the Arts District (led by an artist). In both cases, the guides were knowledgeable about the area, interesting anecdotes. Tours were paced well. Guides sensitive to providing access to bathrooms along the way as well as places to sit (if you need). I'd recommend them for any of the tours based on these positive experiences.

Our party included two LA-area residents and two out-of-towners. We took a Saturday tour of Old & New LA led by Aaron. He was great, very personable. We all four learned much about Los Angeles and will sign up for more DTLA tours.

Great pace- we were not rushed and we were not bored. Knowledgeable guide- combined architecture and history into an entertaining tour.
