The Real LA Tour
, Aug 2020
Damien was an awesome tour guide. Very knowledgeable and personable. It was our first time doing a walking tour and I enjoyed every minute of it. It felt personalized as it was only myself and my girlfriend on the tour. We were able to gain insight and knowledge about things in LA would would have not otherwise learned. Great job and thank you.
Excellent tour, you wont want to miss it!

My family and i had a fantastic time in the LA in a Day Tour. Our guide, Damien, truly immersed us in the history of the city and made it come alive. He pointed out events and locations that I dont think we would have known about in any other tour. If you want to book a tour of LA, book this one!
