Old and New Downtown Los Angeles Tour

Some things just don't get old, especially when they're part of LA's historic Downtown core. On this 2-hour walking tour, your small group visits some of the finest architectural sites from the city's golden era: the Pantages, the Bradbury Building, Grand Central Market and the Broadway Theater District. There's no better way to get a feel for the City of Angels than exploring it on foot, so let a local guide lead your way and absorb the colorful street scenes, history and people.
