This tour was amazing, worth the money and extremely information. Scott definitely knows what he's talking about, and it's apparent that he has a love for what he does. Don't spend any time questioning your decision. Buy a ticket, and GO. I would even go again. Thanks, Scott for an excellent tour! My group loved it :)

I recommend this tour to anyone with an interest in Hollywood history and and interest in the Tate/Labianca case. The tour guide was great, with loads of factual tidbits that you don't get from more mainstream sources. Also, they were very good about making tour participants feel comfortable asking questions or adding information they might have themselves.

This was our second tour with Scott and again we were amazed at his knowledge of the events that took place. Scott is excellant at his interpretation of re-living what happened those 2 awful nights. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone who thought they knew what happened - Scott tells you everything you didn't and more.!! Go on this one!!

Awesome tour. Got a lot of information. The only thing I wish was if we could get out of the car and take photos. He has an awesome museum back at the shop so thats definitely worth checking out. Really weird to be right in front of all these famous sites. Its really cool to see the houses now and think back to the photos taken back in 69.' Glad they have a tour like this. Definetely recommend it.

I had the opportunity to take the Helter Skelter tour and I thoroughly enjoyed it. While it's not necessarily for someone with just a passing interest in the story, there is some beautiful scenery to be viewed along the tour. Scott does a great job of improvising on the tour, and upon finding out some of the interests of other people in our group he went out of his way to show things related to their interests. I highly recommend.

Helter Skelter Tour

I took the Tragic History tour from DD last year and really enjoyed it. I was hoping that the Helter Skelter tour would be as good. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this tour for anyone who has just a casual interest in the topic. The tour guide is knowledgeable and obviously passionate about this subject but some of the sites pointed out are just inconsequential (or irrelevant) to the overall story. The tour is long, around 4 hours, and in my opinion should be cut down to a more manageable time. If you have read everything about the Manson family and are really interested in seeing everything then this is the tour for you. If you are just a little curious, take the other tour - it's way more interesting.

Best tour I've been on!

This tour was such fantastic value for money! we were in America for over a month, travelling to different states and doing the tours and this tour was hands down the best one we came across. the tour guide was so interested in the case and LA its self and every street we turned down seem to have so much history! even though the tour was long it was interesting and you could tell just how much effort and passion had gone into the presentation! the other great thing about this tour and how its been designed is that its not celebrating the murders or Manson it is simply telling the story. The small group made it ever better and everyone was encouraged to ask questions etc. i cant wait to go back to LA just so i can go on this tour again!

The Ultimate Manson experience

I would like to thank Scott for having the insight to make a tour for those of us fascinated with this particular case. I found this tour to be very informative and captivating. The tour really helps you re trace the events that happened on that fateful night while providing you with the actual locations and video footage of the events. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in Manson and a a look back at unique historical events. Scott was on time and prompt with our pick up and really immersed the group into the tour. I met some nice people on the tour and got to share a unique experience with them. In closing I would definitely take the time to check out this tour and enjoy yourself on a look back at the Manson Family and Old Hollywood
