We had a fantastic time on our hike with our guide Emily. She was delightful, had super interesting facts about LA and the landscape, and went at a nice pace for the people in our group who needed more breaks. The hike itself was not that difficult. Definitely had some parts that got your heart rate up but it mostly was more leisurely. 10/10 would recommend!

Kjekk tur, lett å gå, passer også for dem som ikke er i storform. Katie, vår var veldig hyggelig, snakket tydelig for oss utlendinger. Hun tok også gode bilder av oss

Signed up for a hike in the hills - Gil our guide was awesome - made sure everyone was safe and knew everyone's limit. Lots of laughs while we climbed up the hill and explained the history and scenery. Also helped with our insta-worthy shots. A great way to see the city and Gil was great with fabulous tips for the rest of our stay in LA.

As we were unsure the best route to take for a hike we decided we would go for a guide. And it was the best decision we could of made. Our guides name was Emily, and she was amazing. From filling us in with great information about LA, from making us laugh and making the the hike a lot more enjoyable, she really made the experience. The hike itself was breathtaking and easily the coolest thing we done in our time in LA. I highly recommend doing this.
