While we were driving around the country we noticed that people rarely take tours of their own city. When we were in Chicago we had a hard time finding a local who had been up the Sears Tower, when we were in NYC we didn't meet anyone who had been up the Statue of Liberty, however when we were in Memphis we couldn't find anyone who hadn't been in Graceland.

If one were to take a tour of LA, there are a few that we would recommend, but we'd be hard pressed to find anything as entertaining and as unique as Charles Phoenix's Downtown tour as he compares Chinatown, Union Station, Clifton's, Olvera Street, and other downtown locales with Disneyland.

At $65 a head, the insightful and funny tours don't come cheap but it includes transportation, tickets to a puppet show, and even souveniers! The next tours roll on November 5 and November 12.
