1. What’s your favorite neighborhood in Los Angeles?
Los Feliz hands down! The old brick apartment buildings, access to great bars/restaurants and pedestrian friendly quality give it an NYC vibe. Also, its proximity to Griffith Park is a major bonus!
2. What makes you a real Angeleno?
Understanding that the taco truck scene there is on another level. I don’t mean those follow-me-on-twitter type food trucks, I’m talking lengua tacos from a roach coach at 2 AM in Echo Park.
3. What are the 5 best bars in the city?
4. What’s your favorite part about working at LA & NY Tour1?
I love being surrounded by people with a passion to travel. From the entire staff I work with to the tourists themselves. It is truly rewarding to be a part of a community of people who want to expose themselves to different cultures, flavors and ways of thinking.
5. What’s your fave stop on our tours?
I have so many! But if I have to choose probably the Venice Canals. Not only is it a beautiful location, it really speaks to the history of the area and is relatively unknown so its not super crowded. Check it out on our LA Highlights Tour!
