esotouric bus tours
ABOUT: Not your ordinary tour bus company. Esotouric routes veer off into fascinating, neglected neighborhoods. Their expert guides are passionate, brainy and hilarious. The tour themes are provocative and complex, but never dry, mixing crime and social history, rock and roll and architecture, literature and film, fine art and urban studies into a simmering stew of original research and startling observations.
Even the snack stops are unique: a Chinese dumpling picnic in a garden of concrete sea monsters, homemade mint lemonade and cookies at the site of the first UFO sighting in the Southland, or Black Dahlia and Nicotine flavored gelato at Scoops in East Hollywood.
When you climb aboard for an Esotouric bus adventure, you're guaranteed an intelligent, unpredictable ride into the secret heart of the city we all love. These tours are recommended for natives, tourists and anyone who likes to dig a little deeper and discover the world beyond the everyday. Come ride and see for yourself.
They also have an in-house production studio, and produce and distribute original online comedy content. Their brand is represented by The Independent Comedy Network, and our videos can be seen on Joost and Babelgum, as well as on numerous other premium distribution platforms.
