TOUR 3 (From the Beach Cities, Downtown LA, and LAX Areas)
Heart of the City
Downtown Los Angeles
Half-Day (4 hours)

Los Angeles has a magnificent downtown – but many visitors never see it.

Our tour will introduce you to the buildings that have made L.A. a world leader in architectural design…the shimmering, spectacular Walt Disney Concert Hall, showcasing Frank Gehry’s brilliant innovations in form and texture…the strikingly beautiful Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, which breaks the mold for religious architecture…the Bunker Hill Steps, inspired by Rome’s Spanish Steps…and the Staples Center, the most expensive arena ever built, home of the Grammy Awards and the Los Angeles Lakers…you’ll also see glorious reminders of L.A.’s past like the art deco Oviatt Building with its 30 tons of Parisian glass…the stunning Central Library and Gardens…and the 19th-century masterpiece Bradbury Building, which noted architect Charles Moore called “one of the most thrilling spaces in North America”.
