A Southern California native, I moved to Los Angeles in 2007. In 2008, I started exclusively using public transport around L.A., which has given me an amazing education about this city. The "how do you get around" question pops up quite often and I assure people it IS possible. It takes a little more effort (and patience) but the gems you can find make the effort more than worth it.

My extensive personal experience makes me uniquely qualified for this Metro Tour. Not only do I love the Metro system, I love sharing the city! My favorite destinations in L.A. are Griffith Park, the Hollywood Farmers Market, Los Feliz Village, DTLA, and Leo Carrillo State Beach in Malibu.

I'm lucky to live in such a beautiful place and am always excited to share it with others!

I had just returned from hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu the day earlier and was physically exhausted, but a few minutes after meeting Brenna, I knew that I would not regret the experience. I have been to L.A. many times, but never took the time to appreciate where I was: The history of Olvera Street, the Bradbury building, and the Grand Central Market just to name a few. Thanks to Brenna and her tour of L.A.-Metro style, I have a greater appreciation of L.A. and maybe one day I'll be confident enough to explore the greater Los Angeles basin on my own.

Brenna is LA's best-kept secret. My few hours with her flew by. She is amiable, articulate and a fantastic ambassador for the City of Angels. She showed me how to catch the bus and brought me to her fave food spot (Barney's Beanery). Walked the sights around Hollywood (where I was staying) taking advantage of the beautiful spring weather. Don't hop on those cheesy tour buses - get a grass roots view of life in the big city. Thanks, Brenna!

Brenna took me on a wonderful tour of sites in downtown LA, including the Central Library, Bradbury building, Grand Central Market, and more. She gave me lots of great ideas for how to spend my month in LA as a car-free person. She's knowledgeable about the history of LA , and she's very personable and fun! She customized the tour in a way that was perfect for me, since I'm recovering from a broken ankle and need to walk more slowly than usual. You should definitely book a tour with her!

Brenna, took my USC freshman and me on a tour of Little Tokyo. We did it all walking and most importantly by train. Post our afternoon together I fell very confident my daughter can navigate from place to place all around LA using the Metro. We had a gret time checking out the historic sights and entertainment options all around Little T. She'll take you to any part fothe city that you find of interest. Highly recomended for a great afternoon. M

It was a fun and new LA experience. Brenna could not have been more personable and friendly, along with providing an interesting and well-researched narrative to our exploration. She knows her stuff! Having driven to LA countless of times from OC, I did not know what to expect this time travelling solely via metro to and within LA and having a great guide along your side. I discovered that the metro is a wonderful option to have at your disposal in LA and allowed us to avoid many head-aches (traffic, bad parking, gas expenses) normally associated with the drive up, while still allowing you to "get around." We explored quaint bookstores and vintage shops in Los Feliz and overall gained a new perspective of LA. Definitely recommend. Thank you Brenna!

Brenna was so friendly and knowledgeable! We had a great time walking in the Los Feliz village and trying out French food at Figaro Bistrot. It also opened our eyes to the possibility of using public transportation and avoiding so much traffic from Orange County to Los Angeles. It was like experiencing the city for the first time! I highly recommend taking this tour for anyone planning to visit LA to experience the city from a savvy local's point of view.
