Esotouric Bus, at The Daily Dose (Los Angeles, CA)
This is literally your ticket to ride. “Ride where?” you ask. The answer: Just about anywhere. Esotouric tours veer off into fascinating, neglected neighborhoods in the Los Angeles area. The expert guides are passionate, brainy and hilarious. 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: donuts in the parking lot of Charles Bukowski’s favorite liquor store or Raymond Chandler-inspired gelato at Scoops in East Hollywood. With this voucher, you can peruse their website, then send an email, and before you know it you’ll find yourself on a fun and informative tour.
