Led by groups like the Los Angeles Conservancy, the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles, and Esotouric, LA has a strong community dedicated to historic preservation.
Esotouric [has] built an empire on exposing L.A.’s grim underbelly with twisted joie de vivre and nerdy zeal…. The four-hour outings fly by, leaving you with a dozen open Wiki tabs and a thirst for more armchair sleuthing.
For the bookish fan of the macabre.
The city’s most eccentric tour.
Top 10 Things To Do in Los Angeles
Esotouric reveals an L.A. you didn’t know existed… witty and intellectually stimulating… L.A. came alive like a 1940s noir movie… I will never view the place of my birth the same way again.
There’s no better way to experience and learn about the rich history of Los Angeles then to see it for yourself. Esotouric tours you through all the dimensions of Los Angeles, from the social history of the people who moved here, to the architecture they built for themselves to express their new way of life here, and to the real-life politics and crime stories that seem ripped from the silver screen.
Los Angeles isn’t just palm trees and Crossfit. There’s a seedy underworld that exists under the neon-crunch of vintage signs. tThere’s a history of murder, mobsters, and Hollywood mayhem that plays out like the world’s most fascinating film noir.
Esotouric might be the coolest bus tour company out there. Yeah, yeah, “bus tour” automatically sounds like the dorkiest thing ever, but this tour is about a (nay, THE) Dirty Old Man, and great lover of Los Angeles, Charles Bukowski.
This was one of the most wonderful events I have ever experienced in Los Angeles. I cannot say enough about the level of understanding of history, the deep respect and passion these folks have about all the wonderful facets of Los Angeles. I want to take more tours with Esotouric because my feeling about Los Angeles just went up a hundred percent — what a rich city with interesting stories and people and intrigues — the literary component of the John Fante tour was inspired and engaging. I think everyone who comes to LA should go on a tour to get a foundation of understanding of neighborhoods, how they sprang up, and the politics behind the city. Amazing and I am super excited to go on another one with Esotouric!!!
