Venice Canals Holiday Lights Tours

Los Angeles Magazine's "Best Walking Tour" of 2012 and 2013 presents their fourth annual Venice Canals Holiday Lights Tour.

Once a year, the Venice Canals sparkle with the reflection of lights. Vintage Venice Reel to Real Tours takes you there. Start the afternoon traveling back in time over a hundred years as you view film clips going back to 1910 on an iPad, watching long-gone roller coasters, piers and trolleys spring back to life before your eyes while standing at the actual spots.

Spend the day with Chaplin, Schwarzenegger and The Doors, watching film clips in the shooting locations, walking right where they walked! You’ll also see all the hidden gems known only to the locals, along with all the iconic attractions on the beach.

As the sun sets, we’ll head to the Canals to see the stunning holiday lights covering the bridges and houses.

Tour runs from 2:00 to 5:30, daily from December 15 to January 4th. Tours are limited to eight guests and sell out quickly, so book yours now.
