A great tour jam-packed with interesting facts and information! We loved that tour really stuck to the history and grim stories of Los Angeles — no cheesy “ghost” moments. We learned a lot and would definitely recommend to anyone considering a walking tour!

Our tour guide Neel was very informative and personable. Didn’t feel like a tour, felt like a fun adventure with a friend. The tour was for my soon to be 9year old sons bday, he’s fascinated w ghosts. This tour did not disappoint. Best part was all the information was real, it actually happened.

We were running alittle late but our guide Neel waited for us. I love the more intimate tour with only one other couple walking with us. I checked a haunted toured of LA of my bucket list! It was a great and fun experience

My wife and I are LA residents, but wanted to see a different side of downtown. Neel made the haunted and macabre side of Hollywood come to life for us. Highly recommended!

This tour is one of my favorites of all time. I highly recommend for anyone who loves true crime. You learn about unsolved mysteries, history of building and myths that turned out to be true. This tour came complete with videos and articles to back up all the information. Los Angeles will blow you away....

It was a really good tour. Loved the tour guides enthusiasm and just over all was a fun experience. The tour guide even stayed after until my friends and I got safely into an Uber. Overall great experience. Would definitely do another tour again.

Good look at downtown from the mass murder perspective

It was hard to choose between the Hollywood and the downtown ghost tours, so I did both. Hollywood was more about ghosts. The downtown tour was historically interesting and complex. The guide has done a lot of research on the history of LA and covers the downtown from the atrocities of the early settlers up through the Black Dahlia and serial killers of recent years. The last hour of the tour focuses on the bloody history of the famous downtown hotels. Our group was small, which was really nice because we could hear everything and we never had to worry about keeping up.

I loved it! As a native I thought I knew everything about this city, but even I was surprised by some of the stories! Our host was very well informed, engaging, and entertaining. It'll be an awesome activity for visitors!
