Did a full day walking tour of LA. Our tour guide Damien was very knowledgeable & passionate about giving us all the information in a clear & concise way. The tour was very well planned & organised & was not tiring.

Stuart was so knowledgeable & was worth the day with him. I had been to LA multiple times before but this is the first time I had taken a tour – so thrilled to have this experience with my mom & sister. I would recommend this tour again & again.

Did a walking tour of LA (LA in a Day). Vicky started us off with the Hollywood tour & Damien (who is also the owner) was our guide for the rest of the day. The entire day was awesome, I suggest this tour. There isn’t that much walking, to be honest. It’s very fun!

DIA DE LOS MUERTOS SPECIAL FAMILY TOUR

Join our Dia de los Muertos Special Family tour and celebrate this important anniversary with The Real Los Angeles Tours.

The tour starts in Pershing Square as we tell you about the ancient Lizard People that lived beneath the streets of LA (incredibly, it’s a true story). Then you’ll see where mythical beasts would burrow through tunnels into downtown – the fabled red cars of the Pacific Electric Company. After that we’ll ascend Angels Flight and pass though the nine levels of Chicunamictlán (otherwise known as Bunker Hill). As the tour makes its way to Grand Park we’ll weave together ghost stories, Los Angeles history, Nahua and Tongva religious practices, as well as adding some good-old fashioned Halloween elements (like lots of cookies), before reaching Mictlán, Land of the Dead. Your Dia de los Muertos Special Family tour ends as we leave an offering for the victims of one of LA’s blackest crimes at our own ofrenda in Grand Park. We also encourage guests to leave an item of their own, for a special person that they particularly want to remember at this time.

Our tours can sell out. If you cannot make a booking email us at [email protected], telling us how many guests are in your party, and if we can squeeze you in we’ll let you know.

HALLOWEEN SUNSET STRIP TOUR

Join us on our Halloween Sunset Strip tour, dress up like a 1930’s movie star and have a period-appropriate cocktail at our expense for this special event.

The Sunset Strip is one of the most famous thoroughfares in Los Angeles – and that’s saying something, bearing in mind that Hollywood Boulevard and the Walk of Fame are just a few miles to the east. First gaining prominence in the 1920’s, when speakeasies and gambling joints began to appear along its length, the Sunset Strip’s location in the badlands between the cities of Los Angeles (and Hollywood) and Beverly Hills made it perfect for the racy nightclubs that flourished there in the 1930’s, 40’s and 50’s. As the 1960’s dawned it reinvented itself as a rock club scene and epicenter of the new anti-Vietnam war, hippie, counter-culture and then, in the 1970’s, it gained new prominence for its stand-up comedy-clubs that launched the careers of a huge number of famous comedians. Today many of the Sunset Strip’s most legendary venues are still operating and it’s very much a mecca for Angelenos and visitors wanting a fun night out.

We start the Halloween Sunset Strip tour at the celebrated Chateau Marmont, before heading west to see the location of one of the first nightclubs to open on the Strip, the Trocadero. We’ll pass by Carney’s, before hitting the Sunset Tower, a beautiful Art Deco gem, where we’ll get a cocktail that was invented in Los Angeles in the 1930’s – and is super appropriate for Halloween – in Bugsy Siegel’s old apartment. After that we pass icons like the Comedy Store, Viper Room, Whiskey a Go Go and the Roxy, before finishing at the legendary Rainbow Bar and Grill (where the party can continue into the night). Take a trip down the Strip with us for Halloween.

Our tours can sell out. If you cannot make a booking email us at [email protected], telling us how many guests are in your party, and if we can squeeze you in we’ll let you know.
