A tour of Los Angeles can be a great way to be sure you see the sights that are most important to you, without leaving it up to chance or your travel agent to schedule you on a tour of the things you really want to see.
The tours that dominate Los Angeles revolve around the movie and entertainment industry. You can tour studios, TV stations, and even go back stage on the set of your favorite sitcom for the right price.
There are also tours around Los Angeles that take you to the homes of your favorite actors and personalities. Better than a star-map, which just shows you where these places are located, the celebrity homes tours load you onto a bus and take you to the front driveway of the popular stars. Starline Tours does this well and makes you feel not at all like a stalker by mixing in some historical information along with the tour.
If you actually want to learn something about the fascinating history of Los Angeles, however, there are many historical tours that you can take on your trip. Historical walking tours are often arranged by neighborhood and walking tours tend to have the best tour guides and the most comprehensive information.
Chinatown offers interpretive tours around that area and hits all the famous sights of a neighborhood steeped in history. For Chinatown tours, you can pay a small fee to have someone walk you around the area, or take a walking tour yourself and explore the area on your own.
The very best in walking tours of Los Angeles, however, is offered by the LA Conservancy, which offers both guided walking tours and self-guided podcast tours of neighborhoods like Los Angeles’ first suburb: Angelino Heights, as well as neighborhoods like Highland Park, and landmarks like USC. A complete list of the tours offered by the LA Conservancy is available at their website.
