L.A. is so big – how are you going to see the city in one day? Easy! Join our LA in a Day tour and see 3 completely different neighborhoods of the city - Hollywood, downtown and Santa Monica. There’s no breezing through on buses with a pre-recorded audio commentary playing (which is always out of sync), on this tour we show you the hidden nooks and crannies of the city that other tour companies don’t (including 7 different venues that have held the Academy Awards Ceremony) and give you a feel for the real Los Angeles. We're pioneers of the all day metro and walking tour of Los Angeles. Why did we create it? Because we want you to feel like you're an Angeleno for the day and to fall in love with the city like we did. * Tour starts 10 am daily * Travel on Los Angeles Metro included in ticket price * There’s a big range of food options and all types of diet can be accommodated (vegan, gluten-free etc)

Stop At:

On this tour you'll explore and learn about Hollywood, downtown and Santa Monica, the three most interesting parts of Los Angeles. You'll also learn how to use the metro (it's probably much better than you think) and have lunch at Grand Central Market, one of the top food destinations in the U.S.

Stop At: Hollywood Walk of Fame

We’ll start your LA in a Day tour in Hollywood (where else) and show you how and why L.A. became the center of the American entertainment industry. There’s a huge amount of fascinating movie history surrounding the famous Walk of Fame, including the oldest house in Hollywood (where Charlie Chaplin’s kids went to school), the Capitol Records Building, the Egyptian Theater, the Dolby Theater (home of the Oscars) and the TCL Chinese Theater, and you’ll learn about it all.

Duration: 2 hour

Stop At: Civic Center

We take the subway to downtown – it’s actually the fastest way to get there. DTLA is where the city was founded, in 1781, and it has a huge number of iconic buildings, such as Los Angeles City Hall and the Walt Disney Concert Hall.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Grand Central Market

We pause your LA in a Day tour for lunch at one of the top food destinations in America, Grand Central Market. There are a huge number of (very reasonably) priced options here and all types of diet can be accommodated. You'll love it.

Stop At: Downtown Historic District

Every week hip new restaurants, bars, Apple stores, creative offices and apartment blocks are opening in the area. Many people don’t realize it’s also the best-preserved historic downtown of any major city in America (with some of the best architecture in the world, including many beautiful examples of the Beaux Arts, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, modern and post-modern styles).

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At:

Once in SaMo we’ll give you a tour of the area (including the famous Santa Monica Pier), before finishing your LA in a Day tour at 3rd Street Promenade, a perfect place to watch the sun set while enjoying cocktails and dinner. By now you’ll have had a real experience of Los Angeles and made some great memories to take home with you.
