I had never visited LA before and was completely LOST when I arrived. A friend of mine suggested I book a tour and really raved about a tour called CityWander Walks. I decided to check them out and see what they were about. I am SO thrilled that I did. The tour host, Brynna was such a bubbly, awesome tour... More

My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of taking an awesome Hollywood Walking about a year ago & we're thinking about doing it again. Not only did were we filled in on the faces & places of our favorite celebs, we also had plenty of laughs. Our guide made things relevant & she found a way to keep us interested... More

I had been to LA a few times, but always just hit a couple of touristy spots and that was it. If you have ever traveled to a different city, you know what I mean – sort of hit and miss touring. This last time I went I was determined to see the “real” LA. After checking out several tour... More

I love history and I love the movies too. City Wander host Brynna made them both come alive for me and my fellow travelers in an exciting new way. Most everyone is captivated by Hollywood and its mystique. Many tourists are content to simply drive by on a bus and take in the prepackaged pablum version of Hollywood. With many... More

Brynna is a true american entrepreneur, intelligent and able to pass the locale information easily and in a fun and interesting manner. None of the "on your left you will see..." "on the right you will see..." Yawn! She actually knows her stuff and can field questions!!! I am sure we will see her again next time we are in... More

When my girlfriend and I went to Los Angeles, we knew nothing about the city and needed a little help getting started. We decided upon CityWander and definitely don't regret it. I think it's safe to say now that we could find our way around some of LA's best spots (Bunker Hill, Grand Park, etc.) with ease. This was mostly... More

The tours from CityWander sounded really good. Therefore we kept trying to rebook, even though there was one cancellation after another. At first, the reasons for the cancellations made sense, the guide had had an accident. But then there were more cancellations where the only reason given was that a big party had just cancelled so that there would not... More

Hello Swantje, I see that after your review was removed you felt the need to post again. I have personally contacted you on 2 occasions explaining that it is our company policy, that you agreed to that if we do not have 3 people on a tour it will be cancelled, with 24 hours notice given. We have responded to... More

I took one of citywander's tours during my recent trip to Los Angeles and I cannot recommend them highly enough. The guide was well informed and the walk was pleasant and not too strenuous. A great way to spend a few hours- I'd definitely go back!

This was a great tour of Los Angeles! It was great to see downtown by foot, and the tour guide was very knowledgable about all of the buildings and streets. It was great to see Chinatown and learn about some of the culture, and it helped that it was a beautiful day out. This was a wonderful way to experience... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
