When traveling to Los Angeles to visit my cousin Vinny last spring, I was excited to voyage to California for the very first time. With my I brought my usual traveling tools – a book, my iPod and a camera – along with my summertime clothes and shoes. I was all set to begin a weeklong adventure as a tourist.
Vinny surprised me the very first day with one of those Los Angeles guided tours to really get the ball rolling with our sightseeing plans. I was amazed by the enormous size and capacity of all of the celebrity homes we passed as we drove through the winding and secluded private roads.
People on vacation tend to fall into one of two camps. First there are those who plan their trip down to the minutest detail, laminate their itinerary and stick to it like glue. Others take more of a laid-back approach, believing that adventures and future memories will find them if they just embrace the experience. In Los Angeles, it’s often best to find a balance between these approaches.
LA guided tours are intended to give out-of-towners a one-of-a-kind look at the city’s many personalities and attractions. Even if you cannot experience everything Los Angeles has to offer in a single trip, you can at least rest assured that a seasoned tour guide knows the area inside and out. Tours cut out the problem of getting lost and losing valuable vacation time because of logistical issues.
