Why is a guided tour ‘A Must’ When Visiting Los Angeles?
Los Angeles est une ville immense de plus de 4 millions d’habitants.
Los Angeles is a sprawling city of over 4 million people (more than 10 million in the metro area).
You can easily visit the must-see places by yourself, such as Hollywood Boulevard and Walk of Fame, Melrose Avenue, the Griffith Observatory or Universal Studios. It’s very easy to find your way around these tourist sites.
On the other hand, areas of Downtown LA, West Hollywood or Venice Beach are worthy of being explored with someone who knows the area well so that the little known places are not missed.
