Los Angeles Times Expeditions: Guided Trips with Journalists

We are all about discovering new places, and one new way to check out locations like Los Angeles, Chicago, New Orleans, Vienna and more through the new Los Angeles Times Expedition tours, a series of custom small-group tours with journalists from the Los Angeles Times.

Developed in collaboration with Academic Travel Abroad Inc., the expedition combines The Times’ expertise in its hometown, world affairs, food, the arts and photography with ATA’s decades of experience in the planning and logistics of education-oriented travel.

Each itinerary is designed to give travelers rare opportunities to experience some of the most interesting subjects that The Times covers accompanied by journalists and experts who can share first-hand knowledge, insider tips and behind-the-scenes access.
