Stop At: Esotouric Bus Adventures, Los Angeles, CA

Cool, brainy, surprising, profound. That's now how others have described these literary tours of Los Angeles. Each 4-hour tour in this series follows an iconic Los Angeles author from youth to maturity. Starting at 12pm from Downtown Los Angeles, enjoy the narration of expert host Richard Schave. The tour takes place on an enclosed, air-conditioned bus. There are video monitors to show historic photos and film clips, and a microphone so you will not have trouble hearing the tour guides. Restrooms are available during the tour. Choose between a tour focusing on poet and novelist Charles Bukowski (Women, Post Office), Raymond Chandler (The Big Sleep, The Long Goodbye), James M. Cain (The Postman Always Rings Twice, Double Indemnity). Visit their childhood homes, favorite bars and restaurants, coffee shops, and the historic neighborhoods that inspired Bukowski's lively, rebellious novels and the moody noir of Chandler and Cain.
