Meeting new people, food, travel, fashion, work, and family is my life! I have been working in tours and travel for 20+ years, and I have a fashion designing background.
I was born and raised in India, where I have lived in over 10 cities. I have also worked for a year in Japan and have been in California for over 22 years. I have also worked for a brief period in the fashion designing industry. With that, and my passion of travelling, meeting new people, learning about cultures and traditions, and planning tours and travel for others, I'm very proud to state I work in a field I absolutely love!
After living in Los Angeles for over 22+ years and being a tourist in many countries I can totally relate to what travelers like and look forward to. Everyone travels different and planning that fabulous over the top experience is my responsibility. I love hearing what people's interest and wants are and love planning their dream trip for them. Los Angeles is truly a melting pot, it embraces everyone with open arms and warm heart, there is something for everyone here and people are extremely friendly and welcoming, and I want everyone on my tour to feel same. I would love to show you best that Los Angeles has to offer, take you to local and touristy places both and for you to feel like a "Angelino" for few hours/days!
My favorite things to do in LA - Universal Citywalk, Hollywood, Hollywood sign hike/walk, Beverly Hills, Museums, Downtown LA, Beaches, Beverly Hills, Visiting outlet malls (who does not enjoy shopping), Disneyland, Shrine Lake, Hikes, Getty Villa, visiting new restaurants and paddle boarding Venice Canals.
My goal via these tours are to curate tours that showcase Los Angeles beauty at the same time try my best to customize the tour as per your wants. I'm always open to ideas and suggestions and would love to work with you at every step, happy faces and warm heart filled with good memories is the goal I want to achieve with each one of you!
I look forward to meeting you soon and taking you on either my suggested tour or customizing the tour according to your desires.
A Recent Review of this guide
Charu, was absolutely wonderful, had many great suggestions and was very flexible. There were 3 of us in the group, with no children, and she created a wonderful tour that was unique to our needs. We went to the Griffith observatory for our science aspirations, to the Hollywood walk of Stars for our movie fandom, the Farmers Market at The Grove for our foodie experience and to Rodeo drive to dream about shopping. Charu even took us to the chocolate shop that inspired the I Love Lucy chocolate episode.
