Landmarks Downtown Architectural Walking Tours is a program of Landmarks Association of St. Louis, Inc.
Our experienced volunteer tour leaders will introduce you to the fascinating architectural history of St. Louis. We find that our guests are interested in the stories of how the buildings fit into the culture and the history of the city as well as how the buildings relate to the city. Our goal is to provide an entertaining and educational experience for all of our guests.
How long do the tours take and how far will we walk?
Tours last 2 hours and are held rain or shine. Expect to walk approximately 2 miles at a moderate pace. Tours are open to individuals or groups of 1 to 9 people. For groups of 10 or more, please contact us.
Where should I park?
Surface lot and garage parking is available throughout downtown. Two-hour metered parking is available on the street. Download the Park Louie App to pay for parking and to add time to your meter. Metro stops are conveniently located. Use the Eighth and Pine station for the East Tour; Union Station for the West Tour; and either Convention Center or Laclede's Landing for the Washington Avenue Tour.
Do you have customer service?
Of course! Our friendly and knowledgeable customer services reps are available to answer your questions at 314-207-9779.
What is your return Policy?
Tickets are not refundable, but they can be exchanged for one of our other tours or for a different date.
Do the tours start and end at the same place?
The East and West tours end within a few blocks of the start. The Washington Avenue Tour starts at 3rd and Washington and goes to 17th and Washington, so parking at the mid-point of the tour is best.
Are the tours accessible?
The tours move along city sidewalks, which are accessible. Some tours go inside historical buildings, which may not be fully accessible.
Can you accomodate private tours?
Definitely! We can handle private tours of five or more and we're happy to give tours for corporate events, convention activities, family reunions, out-of-town guests and student groups. Check out our private tours page.
