What a great way to spend 2 hours in happening DTLA! Our guide Jen, was knowledgeable and spoke to everyone in the group. Lots of stops and 8 miles felt like 2 miles! You should book it!

A great tour to cover the highlights of DTLA. Jen was really informative, covering history and celeb's in our stops. A good mix of cycling and breaks - not too much for a non-cycler. I would definitely recommend, a must do when visiting LA.

I took the Historic Core Tour and I was introduced to lots of history and cultures that DTLA carries. Lots of info. I highly recommend taking any of the tours, fun day all around. Grand Central Market was a lively spot for lunch too.

Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering

warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
