We take tours all around the world and have learned that sometimes you need to give a guide time to warm up, so we did. This scheduled 3 hour tour ended after only 45mins when we had to take an Uber back to our starting spot. Our guid left US! I only wish I could attach the video to this review so you can see how we followed a guide who had little to say about the art we were supposed be learning about while we walked. We would walk past art and districts and he wouldn't say anything about them. We did however learn about income inequality, over and over again but for the first 10 minutes he didn't say anything, just continued walking. I don't want to make this personal but when your art guide walks right past signs telling you an establishment is close or an entrance is the other way without even noticing, it's not a sign of a tour designed to ensure you enjoy it. This was a complete waist of time and money. DO NOT BOOK THIS!

We expected a lot more to be honest. Tour was short and area was kind of small and basic. The guide was good and gave us other info about LA that was useful.
