Great tour for a quick stop in LA. We saw way more than we bargained for and the guide was entertaining. Thanks for the great experience.

The experience was great but the dining is subpar. Eat before you head up to the mountain.

Wonderful Experience, the guide was extremely knowledgeable about haunted LA history.

The guide was awesome! Wish I saw more homes though
