Our guide, Shandu One had a great knowledge of the local graffiti scene and graffiti history in general. It was very informative and interesting learning more about the history of graffiti and personal anecdotes from Shandu's life. Highly recommended if you are interested in graffiti or even art in general.

Such an informative tour! Our guide Gallo Abel (sp?) was terrific. Very knowledgeable and lots of “insider” info.

I had been on this tour before with a different guide. I felt that this one was not as informative or engaging. This first time we looked any many more aspects of art, whether it be on the sidewalks, the walls or sculpture. Don’t get me wrong we still had a great time.

Total “insiders” tour of street art within the LA Arts District! Within about 5 blocks our awesome guide showed us so much art that would have either gone unnoticed (small pieces on telegraph poles or in death defying parts of buildings) or had no context to allow us to appreciate it. Cannot recommend this highly enough!!!

Hector was excellent In explaining a world of art that was new to me and my guests. He was extremely patient and was a great guide for the tour

Because we love street art and we felt it was interesting but a little bit provocative and anonymous

I brought three friends to the walking art tour this past weekend. Our guide was Hector aka ShanduOne, a completely mesmerizing and talented artist and leader. His articulate explanations of the meaning of the various symbols and styles and his knowledge of the history of the street writers and artists in the area kept us spellbound for two hours. Hector also showed us his stencil work on the walls and then had us make our own. Very fun. This was my second tour with LA Art Tours, and I found both of my guides unique and skillful at drawing me into a world I know little about. Thank you so much Hector for a totally exciting and compelling visit!! I'll definitely be back with my next group of out of town visitors.
