We had reservations to take the Took Art Deco Tour guided by a knowledgeable and pleasant guide from the Los Angeles Conservancy. The wealth of information that she exhibited on the Art Deco buildings and how she presented it kept your interest. I definitely recommend taking one of the tours from the Los Angeles Conservancy.

Robyn our tour guide talked non-stop for almost 3 hours. It was the most informative, interesting, surprising 3 hours I've ever spent on a walking tour. Everything she said was valid, well informed, detailed, funny, historically correct. I could have spent all day listening to her. There is so much to see in DTLA that you would not notice without this tour. The architecture and history (whilst not like English history), was fascinating. It was a scorching day, yet she found shade, places to refresh water and to stop off. Very considerate and excellent value for money at $15 I'll be booking back on the Theatre tour next time I go.

A rare offering as most of the other tours run on Saturdays, this is unique in that it focuses on one site, the beautiful Biltmore Hotel. You will gain access to certain areas not accessible to the general public but the highlight is, as always, the guide. You can’t believe the Conservancy guides are all volunteers. They do an absolutely fabulous job. It’s not just facts but the way things are explained. A great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

A perfect tour to appreciate the history of downtown LA, its rise/ fall/ and revival. we joined the Historical Walk and though it was not impressive at the beginning (our guide looked like a professor so we thought...oh no, this is going to be boring), it turned out to be a great activity for us, the facts provided, coupled with well-researched archive photos plus, of course, the guided visits to many beautiful buildings of downtown , made our morning well-wort h the drive from Sta. Monica area. and oh, it was fun. Highly recommended to anyone visiting downtown LA, so that he/she can appreciate the area much better.

Another excellent walking tour with the Conservancy, this time the Art Deco tour of downtown LA with Terry (see also Broadway and Commercial District review). You will meet in Pershing Square which is accessible by Metro bus/train/subway if you would prefer not to have to park in the city. It’s a 2:15 - 2:30 hour walking tour which does involve some walking up hills and stairs so dress accordingly. A lot of buildings are privately owned so which ones you will be able to see inside can differ depending on the day. Also, some places you are allowed inside but prohibited from taking photos so heed the docent’s comments accordingly. As expected the Conservancy does a good job of highlighting architecturally interesting buildings in downtown LA.
