7 Days in L.A.
Welcome to 7 Days in L.A., home to the city's most interesting guided tours. We're not a tour operator, but a consortium of the region's best independent tour operators. Whether you're interested in architecture
or true crime
, film locations
, gay history
or iconic L.A. literature
, you'll find the perfect excursion on our community calendar, and all the information you need to book a tour. Why 7 Days in L.A? Because this city is too big and too complicated to understand without a native guide, and because you're smart enough to know that a one-size-fits-all experience is the wrong size for you. Consult our calendar, sign up for the newsletter
, and let our passionate local historians show you the city that they love. Give us few hours, or your whole week, and we'll change the way you think about Los Angeles forever.
7 Days in L.A. is the brain child of me (Kim Cooper) and my husband Richard Schave. We run Esotouric bus adventures
, the cultural tourism company known for offerings like "The Real Black Dahlia," "Pasadena Confidential" and "Charles Bukowski's L.A." Because Esotouric only offers tours on weekends, we regularly recommend select L.A. tour companies to customers inquiring about weekday excursions or companies on a similar wavelength—and these folks often return the courtesy. 7 Days in L.A. is a real world extension of that spirit of cooperation and mutual support that makes L.A.'s independent tour guide community so special.
