Chris is a fantastic guide! Knowledgeable, charming, highly engaged with the group! I highly recommend this tour with Chris.


Your guide is awesome. Has a lot of LA history to share and is very friendly and enjoys what he does. The stairs are very interesting as is the area we toured: Silver Lake. I really enjoyed learning about the historical events and time line as well


I have now done two tours with Chris. One with his charming dog, Odin coming along for the ride. Both have been super fun walks; very informative and the amount of facts that Chris packs into the tour is phenomenal. I intend to do more tours with Chris as he really is the most impressive and enthusiastic tour guide I’ve ever experienced. His passion for LA makes me like the city more. The secret stair tour in Silverlake was unique and a lovely way to get to know the area better. I highly recommend a tour with Chris.


Chris had so much knowledge about everything. We learned so much. He even gave us the tour in the rain. We plan on doing other tours with him in the future.


Great sunny SoCal day for a tour of the painted stairs in Silver Lake. Chris was a fantastic guide who was very knowledgeable of the artists who painted the stairs as well as some interesting history of the area. Highly recommend and we are LA locals!!


Chris is an excellent guide and very knowledgeable. He has a lot of interesting facts to share along the walks. This is our third time with him and we would definitely recommend him to tourists and locals looking for a fun tour. Our first experience with him was on a crime tour in DTLA on Halloween. We have actually done a few crime/haunted DTLA tours but his was definitely the best. We then did his Silverlake painted stairs tour and then Hollywood stairs. The Hollywood one may have been my favorite since I had no idea these stairs were there, it was fun seeing some amazing houses along the walk, and of course the views are nice. He has a tour of echo park that will be next on our list! Again, highly recommend!


Great walking tour with @seelainaday. Chris was extremely knowledgeable and kept everyone very safe. He was able to adjust the tour based on the group’s capabilities and still not miss anything. Chris’ knowledge and research was outstanding. We knew we would like the nice hike and to see the hidden painted stairs along with graffiti art but the beautiful homes we saw was an unexpected added bonus. Great location for hip LA restaurants. We had amazing tacos after @guizados just down Sunset. Highly recommend for native Angelos or sightseers. Look forward to other tours with Chris @seelainaday.
