Dance through the Window to City Hall

As seen through Robert Graham's DANCE DOOR, the Los Angeles City Hall is perfectly framed as you look east down what will someday be the new Los Angeles Mall. Our guests love the Music Center fountain (perfect on a hot day) and this particular piece of public art never fails to fascinate. We love bringing…

Quiet on the Street Set, Stop Honking!

We hardly ever have a tour where we do not encounter a film crew out on location.  We see either a parked convoy of semis, vans and half-ton pickups or we run full on into bright lights, cables and off duty and retired police seeing that the crew is undisturbed and able to do their…

The Original Pantry Never Closes. Ever!

While it is rare that we find ourselves out on a tour of Los Angeles late a night, since we specialize in custom private tours we do on occasion meet up with night owl visitors who want to see the lights of the city and drop by the bars and nightclubs, hear some music, dance…
