The LA Highlights tour is for the traveler who wants to see Los Angeles in its entirety. Guests of this Los Angeles architecture tour are escorted by a private guide to see all of the best Los Angeles attractions, while exploring and learning about all of the primary areas in and around Los Angeles including: Downtown LA, Silver Lake, Miracle Mile, Hollywood, West Hollywood, Sunset Strip, Beverly Hills, Century City, Westwood, Santa Monica, and Venice. There are breathtaking views and photo ops galore. The "Hollywood" sign, Venice Canals, Griffith Observatory, and Pacific Ocean are just a few of the landmarks seen on this extensive architectural and historical tour of Los Angeles.
The LA Highlights Tour explores downtown Los Angeles to see the Historic Downtown Core, including the Broadway Theater District and Fashion District. A visit to the southern section of downtown Los Angeles will unveil the Staples Center, Los Angeles Convention Center, and LA Live entertainment complex. Bunker Hill is home to a slew of modern skyscrapers, the Los Angeles Performing Arts Center, and Frank Gehry's Walt Disney Concert Hall. We also visit the founding location of Los Angeles - El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora la Reina de los Angeles - now a thriving cultural center near present day Union Station.
After seeing the glitzy Hollywood Boulevard featuring the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the hand printed concrete slabs at Grauman's Chinese Theater, this Los Angeles tour takes you up into the Hollywood Hills for a glimpse of Los Angeles' awe-inspiring nature and the Hollywood Reservoir. A trip up to the Griffith Observatory in Griffith Park will reveal the most spectacular views of the Los Angeles Basin from this distinguished Art Moderne building atop Mount Hollywood.
This all-encompassing Los Angeles tour takes you through the linear downtown that is Wilshire Boulevard, and through Beverly Hills on the affluent Rodeo Drive, before visiting that other famous Los Angeles attraction: the beach. After driving Santa Monica Boulevard to its termination, we take some time to admire the majestic Pacific Ocean and tour Santa Monica. Artsy Venice is geographically close to Santa Monica, but as you'll see, varies dramatically in culture and vibe. However, both Venice and Santa Monica have remarkable collections of architecture, and hosted the inception of the so called "LA Style" in the early 80's with emerging architects like Frank Gehry and the firm of Morphosis building post-modern, deconstructivist, and outlandish beach town structures.
