    There is a fantastic architecture tour given by the LA Conservancy. In about two hours of walking through a lot of downtown we got a great overview of the growth of Los Angeles and quick looks at many architecturally significant buildings. Very knowledgeable guide. I highly recommend this! Other tours are available as well.

    We took this tour and it's a good one! Downtown LA has lots of old fascinating buildings, many of which are being re-purposed.

    There is a free guided tour once a month: link here. I believe it's the second Sunday of each month -- they still have last year's dates listed.

    Looks like they do free guided tours on weekday mornings, if you email in advance to request a time: link here.

    They have free guided and self-guided tours available almost every day: link here

    I can't speak to the cathedral, but for architecture buffs in downtown L.A., I'd also recommend the Central Library, which has a free guided tour every day (except holidays when the library is closed): link here

    The Roosevelt Hotel across the street from the Grauman Chinese Theater is a interesting place that Is worth a look.
