This was an amazing tour. Such a lovely guide who had so much knowledge to impart. We were a group of 13 spooky number eh? and I'm sure we all went away very well educated on the scary side of Downtown. I was particularly spooked about the Alexandria Hotel and can't wait to google it when I get the chance. If you're stuck on tours to choose then we can well recommend you choose this one. Fantastic and informative.

This is an offbeat tour that is packed with great stories and legends surrounding downtown L.A. An absolute must when visiting L.A.

One of the best that we’ve had. And we’ve done it in Paris, London , Rome. It was informative and entertaining at the same time. Our guide AJ was excellent . He was helpful by taking us to the Metro to go back to our hotel.

This tour was way too long and you walk pretty far in the dark. We passed some uncomfortable areas as well. The tour guides had a lot of information but it would have been better with less.

Nice walking tour, good mixture of history and tales of hauntings. Very knowledgeable and personable guide. Don't expect to see any actual ghosts on the tour, but you will see some pretty interesting related places.

Was hoping for more ghost stories, or maybe scarier stuff, maybe go into some spooky alley or something. I still enjoyed it because I like history and architecture but the stories or story telling didn't feel as engaging as I hoped. Make sure you know the starting and ending points are not the same. Very impressed that the guide remembered all the dates and names!

Great way to see Downtown LA at night because I'd never go by myself. Lots of interesting facts about murders/murderers throughout LA history. Some people were late to show up and the tour guide was great about arranging a spot to meet them so that the rest of us didn't have to wait and the latecomers didn't miss much.
