What people are saying about Downtown Los Angeles

Overall, it was excellent! Trevor greeted us with champagne and a smile. Our pilot, Anton, flew the helicopter so expertly. The take-off and landing were smoother than parking a car. There was no turbulence. Anton was an enthusiastic guide, pointing out celebrity homes and many Los Angeles landmarks. It was our anniversary and we had such a good time. Even the cheesecake was good! Definitely a 5 star experience!

This was a fun walking experience where we got to try delicious food from the area and get to learn about it as well. I enjoyed learning facts about the area and about the food we tried.

This was our first food tour and we plan to do this again. very interactive and the selection of places and food was so delicious. we really enjoyed our day.
