Very interesting tour

Really enjoyed this tour of Hollywood, very informative of the mad world that it can be. Small group which made it better too.

Only slight complaint is that the AC in the bus could have been better, but it was a really hot day. Take some fluids with you.

This is a terrific tour. A tour is a tour but a tour guide who is extraordinary is what takes this tour to the stratosphere. Brian knows more about Hollywood than anyone on this planet. He is passionate about what he does. Every minute was fun.....there was a tantalizing story around every bend. Can't even pick a highlight cuz it was ALL a highlight!! Get your camera ready and prepare for a magical trip.

Excellent detailed Info

I would recommend this tour as the ONLY one or even the FIRST one to go on when in the area. He is so knowledgeable and points out more than you would even expect during the entire time. He never rushes and it is so obvious that he thoroughly enjoys what he does. If there has been a newsworthy item in the area that we pass, he will point it out. Steve does not stick to a script. He gives 200%. I highly recommend this tour--you will NOT be disappointed in the least. I plan to take the tour again and well as his other tours...well worth the money than any other tour.

I and my 19 yr. old son decided to take this tour after talking about some of the interesting 'never-solved' crimes in the LA area. He being much younger than me, was not familiar with all the names and events, but found the tour quite fascinating anyway! And it was not just about the dark things of Hollywood, there were some very interesting facts and history of Hollywood itself. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see some interesting sites and stories of some of the most notorious macabre events in LA. And also those that just want to see the sites and not worry about the traffic! Wonderful tour guide and very comfortable bus. Can't wait to take the "Helter Skelter Tour"!

My wife and I woent on the tour and it was great, just as we hoped. I wondered how a 3 hour drive around hollywood would be entertaining but the tour guide did a great job telling stories and keeping us entertained with his humor. There was never more than 3 minutes where he didnt tell an interesting story. We definately recommend this tour for everyone, it may be a little edgy for little children. There was no children on our tour so it was ok by us.

Great, fun tour with lots and lots of interesting facts about old school hollywood. i didn't know many of the actors/actresses the tour guide was talking about, but it was still very interesting. My only complaint is the tour guide talked soooo fast that I missed a lot of information. Otherwise, great tour and would recommend to anyone!

Fun with lots of great Hollywood trivia!

I could tell the staff really loved their jobs, which had definitely shown through on the tour.

Our tour began in a very comfortable, air-conditioned van with big windows. Our tour

guide was Brian, and he was not only a wiz at Hollywood trivia, but extremely funny and friendly, with

lots of good tips and suggestions for more sight-seeing and fun.

It's not a walking tour, you only get to stop once to use the restrooms and stretch your legs.

The tour lasts about 2.5 hours, and is fully narrated while driving by, and occassionally stopping for photo ops.

If you love Hollywood and all it's history, you'll really enjoy this tour. The time goes by so fast!

I would highly recommend this tour and I am looking forward to taking more insightful trips with this company.
