About the tour

Just 20 minutes outside of Downtown Los Angeles, is one of the largest collections of camellias in the Western Hemisphere. Nestled among towering native oak trees, the Camellia Forest of Descanso Gardens is not to be missed during the winter months of Southern California. Swaths of pink, white and red beckon you to stop, take a moment and breathe in the spicy fragrance of this beautiful flower. This tour is a quieter tour, focusing on the different specimens that are showcased while in bloom. You will see an oasis within the limits of the city that will surprise and delight you with its natural beauty.


Meet LA Linda

LA Linda

Linda is unabashedly in love with California. Born and raised in Southern California, she and her husband moved to Los Angeles when she was just a young slip of a thing. She immediately embraced all that LA had to offer from tacos to waterfalls and everything in between, including the golden glow of the entertainment industry that permeates everything and everywhere. Her tours are like her, spontaneous and joyful with a very large dose of curiosity. They include a little bit of everything: history, architecture, culture, food, art, and the natural world that exists amidst the urban sprawl. This crazy mix of cultures and its people is what makes LA so wonderfully unique! If you join her on one of her adventures, be ready for a lovely time, and maybe a little musical outburst. Or two. She can't help it.
