We had the pleasure of hosting the ECF tour. An amazing non-profit working with Kids and adults with development disabilities. At 28 people it was our biggest tour yet. A chance meeting with the Director at an art fair allowed us to plan for this.
Wow, what a tour, what a group. The L.A. Tourist Board was hosting 20 travel agencies from across the US and showing them L.A. to promote tourism in the city - they selected 10 different areas, from tours, to hikes, to shopping etc. I had the pleasure of hosting the Venice leg. Massive shouts to @indiangiver (pictured middle of the group shot) for taking the time out to discuss his work and career, after finishing his new piece on Abbot Kinney. Went down a storm.
They brought two film crews - video to follow in a few weeks…..
When we started the tours we only really looked to tourists, but more and more people are coming from the local area - and always say they love finding out more about the streets they have walked for years.
