Cartwheel Art Tours designs 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 speciality businesses in the art-centric and rapidly changing neighborhood.

Only Cartwheel Art Tours offers 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.
