About the tour

Take a trip to one of the most luxurious railway stations in the Western United States. Our guide will take you on a lovely trip through Union Station, a glorious example of Mission Moderne architecture. You will learn of its history along with oohing and ahhing at the colorful tile work, architectural details, marble and original furnishings that makes Union Station so uniquely Californian. Our 30 minute tour will give you a sense of what traveling may have been like in the 30’s and 40’s when train travel was still king.


Meet your local guide

Linda

Linda was born and raised in Southern California and loves to share its many adventures with others. Having traveled North America extensively as a professional musical theater actress, her favorite pastime is getting outside and “walking and gawking;” meeting new people, trying new foods, learning about different cultures. Especially in the car-centric city of Los Angeles, taking a walk gives you a different perspective on this complex and historically fascinating town. LA, and its surrounding areas, is a quilt of international neighborhoods that Linda can’t wait to share with you!

Linda has been guiding since Aug 2020

She's nice. The area she chose was interesting. I wish she had spent less than 50% of the tour at Union Station since she apparently could not enter. I think she should have moved on to a different attraction since the tour is brief anyway.

'Twas most enjoyable. Linda is very knowledgeable and if there is something that escapes her, she says she will find out about it. Skillfully walks, talks, relates history, points out landmarks and addresses questions and comments in the chat window- a superb multitasker and a charming person to boot! Thank you, Linda!

Linda was so friendly, knowledgeable and easy to follow— just like you’re hanging out with a good friend who is showing you around their hometown!
