Create the experience of a lifetime with our custom tours. Learn more about the art and culture of Los Angeles through our magazine and activate your next event with art, music, and community.


Cartwheel Art Tours design custom itineraries for private and public groups. The tours that we lead, are offered as an opportunity to engage individuals and groups, whether local or visiting, in an immersive art, food and historical walking (and sometimes bus or bicycle) adventure, with a focus on supporting artists and artisan businesses, in the neighborhoods we explore.

Private tour experiences are offered throughout the culturally diverse neighborhoods of Los Angeles, including the Downtown Los Angeles Arts District, where we are based. Tours in the Arts District, include a printed map, published by Cartwheel Art, identifying the galleries, restaurants, bars, and cafes, and other specialty businesses in the art-centric and rapidly changing neighborhood.

Only Cartwheel Art Tours offer guests the exclusive opportunity to discover, explore, and experience Los Angeles neighborhoods through the perspectives of a rotating, eclectic team of knowledgeable and passionate insiders, who are deeply connected to their community.
