3 Essential Los Angeles Walking Tours

I love Los Angeles. And I love to share about good places to eat and the best local spots to visit if you're traveling to L.A.

If you're coming to visit, and you're in search of LA's best, listen to these podcasts about how to see the best of LA in just 3 days.

I've got four different 1-day itineraries for you to listen to. Unfortunately, no Google maps anymore. Somehow they get deleted. Sorry.

I recorded these narrated walking tours with my friend Chris Christensen for his Amateur Traveler podcast.

Walking Tours of Hollywood and Downtown LA – Day 3

Los Angeles Walking Tours, Days 3 and 4 – Hollywood and Downtown L.A.
Me on the red carpet at the Oscars with Cirque du Soleil, who I represented when they performed a special tribute to special effects at the Dolby Theater. This is on Hollywood Blvd., which gets closed off in front of Grauman's Chinese Theater for the Academy Awards.
Disney Hall by architect Frank Gehry transformed the downtown Los Angeles skyline.

As a native Los Angeleno, I love sharing my knowledge of the city with others.

These are two audio recordings that make up 4 days of walking tours in L.A.

Download and take them with you to go.


Since Los Angeles is so spread out, and the good places to visit are next to each other, you really do need to plan out your days to make sure you see the best of LA if you're on a limited schedule.

By listening to these audio walking tours in advance and making some decisions about what you want to see, you'll have a much better chance of enjoying your stay.

A lot of people come to LA and say they didn't really have a great time because they just went to Disneyland and Universal Studios and never got a chance to see any of the local spots.

I hope these audio walking tours will help you have a great trip to Los Angeles.
