Excursions in Los Angeles

A visit to Los Angeles is not complete without Hollywood. And the Getty Museum. And ethnic quarters. And... well, today you will learn a lot. Today, we explore Los Angeles and take care of history and culture lessons.


Los Angeles was founded in 1781. It was originally called El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora la Reina de Los Angeles de Porciuncula - the Virgin and Queen of the Angels of Porchinkula. Only a few Mexican families lived here, but by 1800 the population was 315 people. Then in 1847, American troops captured Los Angeles.

With the discovery of gold in California in 1848, Americans rushed to live in Los Angeles and its environs. By 1870, the population had grown to 5,614 people. However, in the winter of 1861-1862 there were severe floods, and two years of drought followed, which hit the influx of new residents. However, Los Angeles recovered from such a blow.

In 1874, the tram began work, and Los Angeles was connected to San Francisco by rail. In 1892, oil was discovered. As a result, the city grew very quickly, and by 1900 more than 100,000 people lived here.

In the early 1900s, the film industry was focused on the northeast. But there were problems: bad weather, demanding employees and vigilant control of the company of Thomas Edison, who tirelessly arranged licensing fees. The filmmakers began to look for other places to shoot and came across a piece of paradise in Los Angeles. It is moderately sunny, and the geography is diverse. - Mountains, seas and cityscapes.

In 1914, directed by Cecil B. DeMille made the first feature film made in Los Angeles. Later, the rest of the movie business followed DeMille.

Los Angeles - a country of earthquakes. Past earthquakes devastated the region, but it always returned to normal. Thus, the earthquake in Long Beach in 1933 with a magnitude of 6.3 is considered to be "the most deadly seismic event in the history of Southern California."

Or here is an earthquake in 1994. This 6.7 magnitude earthquake, concentrated in the San Fernando Valley, caused 466 fires and injured more than 9,000 people. But now the consequences of this you will not notice.

In the 21st century, Los Angeles continues to flourish. In 2015, the summer Olympic Games were held here. In 2017, the population was already 4 million people.

Tours in Los Angeles in russian

Los Angeles is a huge city, which is unrealistic to see. Its total area is almost 1,5 thousand square kilometers. For this reason, American Butler offers you several diverse excursions, which together will give you a complete picture of the City of Angels and its surroundings.

Los Angeles, like almost all of the United States, is not particularly welcomed by walkers - there is a huge distance between places of interest, and during a long walk it is not surprising to get a sunstroke.

So most of the tours will take place by car, with the opportunity to visit individual places, take pictures of them, as well as a snack. Perhaps a stop on demand if you are attracted to a particular street.

In total, you will need 4 to 7 days to explore the metropolis. We recommend first to evaluate the most important sights - the Walk of Fame, Santa Monica Beach, the prestigious area of Beverly Hills and the Hollywood sign. And after that you can start exploring more local places: from museums and parks to clubs and cafes.

What excursions we offer
