Great Day tour of LA

We had such a great time with the tour. Our guide Rick new everything about the city and could answer all of our questions. He had a great sense for humor too. We visited all the main spots in one day and it is perfect if you only have a short time to visit LA. Being picked up at the hotel is also a big bonus!

You'll also see desert vegetation/plants & cacti close up as we hike along & enjoy amazing views of the desert valley floor below all the way up to beautiful mountain peaks, all while getting in some great exercise.
