  • Excellent tour! Aaron was a great guide! Interesting and informative. Saw a variety of sites and learned a lot about local history. Even though it was hot, found shade in each location as we walked.

  • Great overview of the down town area, informative and very interesting. Our guide was great with offering advice on things to do and see around the area.
    Recommend this tour for repeat visitors to see a different side of Los Angeles.

  • It was a really fun day and the price is great. I had fun and got to see things that I haven't seen even though I live in Pasadena.

  • After spending my entire life avoiding downtown Los Angeles, I was amazed at its vitality and revitalization. Our guide was excellent, walked a little fast, but we did cover lots of ground.
    He knew the area and had the stories. We enjoyed.

  • I'm sorry to say this trip did not meet my expectations. The tour guide was eager and informed about his subject, but still the subject matter was too limited. I wanted to hear stories about real people and their experiences such as one would hear at the New York Tentement Museum. Instead I got a whirl of dates without meaningful context.

  • Our guide was knowledgable and give us interesting tipbits of the history of LA

  • It was a very nice experience, better than i expected. Neel, the guide was very knowladgeble, and fun. I will take other tours with him in the future.
    Highly recomMend this trip.

  • We saw more than expected and the guide was informative and engaging.

  • I visited downtown Los Angeles for work and I stayed at the LA Live JW Marriott. One of the days, I woke up and realized that I had some spare time. I googled tours for downtown LA and came across Neel's Downtown LA Walking Tours site. I booked two of his tours back-to-back. It was the best decision I made because these two tours were amazing. Neel not only shows you sites in downtown, but he gives you the stories behind each site and how downtown has gradually become a thriving part of town. The Beginnings Tour is wonderful because you learn and see how LA was founded. Neel even helps you imagine what downtown LA looked like all those years ago. Definitely check out this tour!!

  • Really enjoyed it and the guide was excellent.
