Bring all your senses, we are going to use them all!

L. A. is much more than just Hollywood and movies stars. Join this tour to explore our arts, natural history, and the food scenes. You will enjoy a private tour of the European fine arts, antiquities, photography, and whatever amazing traveling exhibits that the Getty Center may have during our visit. What will invigorate you are also the architecture, garden, and breathtaking views of the city, mountains and the ocean. Did you know that L. A. was once a death trap for the ice age giants such as mastodons, mammoths and saber-toothed cats? The mystery is still being solved, and millions of fossil records are still waiting to be excavated in the middle of the bustling city to complete the puzzles. To find out what this is all about, we need to go no further than the La Brea Tar Pits. We can make some stops at L. A. 's street art scenes along the drive too. Of course, a good travel day is not complete without a satisfied palate. Let me know your interests, we will include some food sampling stop just for you.


There are so many ways to explore L. A. 's arts, natural history, and food. Here is just an example, but I can customize an itinerary that fits your personal needs. If you prefer a longer than 5 hour tour, the additional hours will be discounted. Please contact me for a quote.

- The Getty Center. Follow me for a combination of art, architecture, and garden tour.

- A delicious lunch or some snack tasting based on your requests (food cost is NOT included in the tour cost. )

- Pass by L. A. 's many vibrant street arts on our way to The La Brea Tarpits, where you will explore and witness life fossil excavation.

- LACMA Museum is right next door, there will be lots of art to see in the public area if you don't have time or want to pay admission fee to explore the paid area. We can end the tour here if you wish to explore the museum on your own, or head across the street to visit the Petersen Automotive Museum for their very cool car exhibit.
