The Deal

  • $12 for 90-minute group tour of LA's graffiti for one ($25 value)

On the guided tour, participants learn about graffiti through a historical lens, with a focus on the street art that LA was famous for in the 1980's—New York-style lettering, enhanced with color and unique calligraphy. Guides also touch on the modern scene, and world-famous graffiti artists.

Tours are held Sundays from 1-2:30 p.m, but the team requests that participants check in 15 minutes in advance. For further details, see the LA schedule

Graff Tours

A city's identity encompasses many elements, from its history and architecture to its art and culture. With Graff Tours, groups peek into each of those realms through a single lens: graffiti. During tours, guides and graffiti experts lead groups through the streets of major cities, including the birthplace of graffiti, Philadelphia. They showcase various types of art along the way—classic graffiti, wheat paste, stencil art, yarn bombing, and more—while explaining the content and importance of each piece. Much like blaring an Alexander the Great speech on your car speakers, tours are a mix of old and new, simultaneously highlighting the history of graffiti and demonstrating where the art is headed today. In addition to its group treks, Graff Tours also offers self-guided maps designed for specific neighborhoods for DIY excursions.

Sunscreen and sunglasses and something to take photos with :) Pretty cool if you like or dont usually like graff, has a lot of different styles of graff from murals to small tags and you might catch an artist live
