What better way to learn about St. Louis than a leisurely walk through the places where the city's history and culture were forged. Learn about the city from its beginnings as a French fur-trading village to a center of manufacturing. Discover its history as a fashion center, its contributions to art and music and its newer roles in biotechnology and geospatial Information. Our two-hour walking tour uses the unique and diverse architecture of St. Louis as the backdrop for telling the stories about its history and culture.

Whether you are new to the city or a long-time resident, we'll show you places that will delight and amaze. We have three regular tours - Downtown East, Downtown West and the Grand Center Arts District . The downtown tours are every Saturday from 10am to 12:30pm and the Grand Center Tour is on the second Saturday of each month from 10am to 12:30 pm. We can also do our regular tours or tailor special tours for groups of five or more.

I have been a tour guide for Landmarks Downtown Walking tours for more than five years. This is my second year running the tours program. I am a life-long resident of St. Louis and am passionate about telling St. Louis stories. I have a great appreciation for storytelling and the way that a great story can illuminate history and culture in a way that nothing else can. The great architecture of St. Louis is a perfect backdrop for telling those stories.

I live in the heart of the city and I really appreciate the St. Louis treasures that aren't readily apparent either to guests or long-time residents, and I love sharing that knowledge.

Beverly: Thank you for providing Rick as our host. Six of us had a GREAT experience in the Central West End with Rick – he said this was his first time giving this tour. All six of us live or have lived in St. Louis. One of us had an uncle who was a chauffeur for a family who lived at #2 Westmoreland (big house torn down). He lived in the coach house which has since been turned into a single family residence. That brought back memories of watching the Veiled Prophet parade on top of a board suspended between ladders at the corner of Kingshighway and Lindell. We walked and learned history with Rick for two hours, focusing on architecture, then sat down to lunch outside at 2 Shae on Union. Today’s walking tour gave us a greater appreciation of all the private streets, homes and public buildings than we had before. The tour was a terrific bargain and learning experience at $11 a ticket. Thank you! Edward and friends

Our guide was very knowledgable about the points of interest in downtown St. Louis. THe 2 1/2 hour length of the tour was more than we were up for on a HOT summer day, so we dropped out half way through.
