Awesome thing to try when in LA.

Great tour. Guide was excellent, and there was a good bit of history built in as well. Would absolutely try other tours from this agency.
Fun and informative. Lots to google later!

Some haunting “stuff”, but also some “underground” history. A good blend. Wear good shoes for walking. Took us a full 2 hours.
This tour Rocks!

Very Interesting tour! It “stayed” with me. Thought about what I heard for several days after. Neel had a unique way of telling stories, keeping us on track, and redirecting “others” who were not a part of our tour in a professional way! Lots of laughs and shocking moments were the icing on the cake! Thanks, NEEL! From your Kentucky participants😎
So much we didn’t know!

The black Dahlia story and how convenient the retired officer reported how his father may be the killer
Safe, Fascinating, and experienced host.

We definitely felt safe with him walking along the streets with him. He was always aware and kept informing people to please respect us and leave us alone. He was well informed of the history and the major deaths of the city. I would definitely request him again and his tour.
