About Pasadena Walking Tours
Pasadena Walking Tours was founded in 2017. We want to help both locals and visitors discover the treasures of our hometown. The tours have been created for guests to learn about the history, culture and architecture of the Crown City.
As of 2019, Pasadena Walking Tours has partnered with LA Walking Tours to increase the offering of tours within Southern California. With this exciting partnership, we can expand the outreach of more tours to new neighborhoods! We hope you'll join us for a tour with Pasadena Walking Tours and LA Walking Tours
