This is a great true crime tour but so much more. The Hollywood history was so detailed and chef’s kiss for a film buff like me! Highly highly recommend! I learned so much that I never knew.

Fantastic tour!
Chris is so knowledgeable about all things LA, true crime, and supernatural. He is a wonderful story teller and was able to answer all of our questions as well as give us a ton of recommendations. Would 100% recommend this tour!

Christoper is amazing
I’ve been on a few tours like this in different cities and this is the best I’ve done by far. Christopher really researched the tour and filled it with great facts, plus he was a pleasure to hang out with. Highly recommend!
