Best way to see and learn about LA

We absolutely loved our hike on 1/14/2021. Our tour guide Liz L could not have been better. She was so cheery, sweet and knowledgeable she just MADE the experience. The hike was full of spectacular views and lead at the perfect pace for kids and parents alike. We learned so much about California history in our two + hour hike. Liz was so easy to chat with and was able to answer every question we had. She had the best recommendations for food later that night and activities for the duration of our stay. If we could give her more stars we would. Awesome COVID friendly activity that’s worth every penny!!

Griffith Park hike with Sara an A+

Sara was our guide and she was terrific! She shared what the hike would be like and had many planned stops along the hike to share some history or a funny story. Sara kept everyone on the hike engaged and helped take photos. The hike was beautiful at sunset. The terrain was safe and included a couple of water stops. Make sure your phone is charged up before the hike so you can take lots of pictures and a video of the panoramic scenery. Sara was awesome!

We had a great hike with our guide Trevor! He was knowledgeable about the area and pointed out locations throughout the LA area from a 360 degree view at the top of the hike. Our family enjoyed the great sunset views that day.
