Brian, the guide, made all the difference in the experience with his enthusiasm and vast knowledge. Three generations-mother, son, and grandson all enjoyed the content and manner in which it was presented.

If you get a chance to take this tour please do! I was super HAPPY I got to meet Scott, I love watching his E! stories and he is even better in person :) I loved their dedication to the memory of each Hollywood star as people not just as celebrities and that means a lot. I hope I get to make the trip back out to take the Helter Skelter tour soon! We came from Austin, Texas with our exchange student from Poland and the main attraction for us was this tour, I was gratefully satisfied and highly recommend to anyone!

Found out things I never Knew!

This was such a FANTASTIC tour! I can't speak highly enough of it. Both myself, and my 16 year old son thoroughly enjoyed it. It was both interesting, and creepy. To be honest, for a few days after the tour, I couldn't shake the images of all the deaths, suicides, last meal locations etc... And my son is now interested in finding out who exactly killed the Black Dahlia. Our next tour will be the Charles Manson tour. I used to live in Chatsworth, and we passed Span Ranch many times as a teen. In 1969 I was about six years old and we lived in Granada Hills, and I still remember how horrible that was. These events have always interested me, as well as scared the shit out of me. Thanks so much, I will recommend your tours to everyone I know. The only regret I have is that I didn't have any cash to give our tour guide a tip ): Maybe you should put "Tips accepted" on your website so people can make sure they have the cash. Thanks!! You guys rock!

Tour was great. Operators made sure to do their homework, and to present correct info, and to clear up the misconceptions.

Good Tour, but not as entertaining as I hoped.

The tour was good overall, and somewhat as expected. However, some advice for the 'choreographers': Change the tour to target a more 'contemporary' crowd and mindset. You have too much historical info on people and places the majority of your clientele either do not know or care about. Some of the older info is good, such as the Blk Dahlia, but so much of the rest is pretty boring. You crowd, as much as I hate to say it, is more interested in where Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, the Kardashians, or any no. of hundreds of other celebs useless habits, hangouts, bad luck or whatever is more interesting than what you are talking about. Thanks

Great Hollywood experience! And we are locals ...

Brian was our guide...what a character. He has so much Hollywood trivia in his head, it is hard to get it all in . Great energy, interesting stories, loved it! My sister and I brought our adult kids (18 and 23)....we all had a great time. Bus is comfy, great big picture windows....highly recommend..even for us locals acting like tourists for the day. Dinner after the tour at Pink Taco, which is on the same street as the tour office. Go early to check in...they have lots of Hollywood memorabilia to explore before the tour.

Wonderful Experience

My teen-age daughter (very involved with music) LOVED the tour. My teen-age son (interested in gore to the extent we abide that sort of thing) really liked a few moments. He's a teen-age boy, and this tour was booked primarily to address my daughter's interests (we did a separate "race" tour for which my son flipped "Fantastic Race").

Scott was responsive to questions and tailored the experience to our group - he offers an amazing base of knowledge, maintains professionalism while avoiding stuffy-ness, and is as dynamic and engaging a tour leader as I've ever seen.

Excellent Tour. Scott really knows the history, back story and gossip from the period in question. His friendly mannerisms and unique style of story telling made for a fabulous tour. Our only regret is that we could not get out of the van to take pictures....we were restricted to taking pictures from the van which really was a bummer....but all in all, a great experience.

Fantastic tour presented by someone who grew up in Hollywood in its heyday. Alison was so much fun and had so much to share. It was funny, informative and highly entertaining from start to finish. Helps if you are a fan of LHOP but there was so much more to this tour than just that.

Fabulous, Fun, and Factual
Sat, Aug 17, 13   1:00 PM DianeStowe Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the subject mater. There was very little wasted time on the tour. We covered quite a bit of territory on our excursion and the recorded 9-11 calls added another bit of validity to the presentation. We saw a great variety of "scenes of the crimes" or tragic landmarks.

The guide showed a general interest at the beginning of the tour to find out everyone was from. I was glad the tour had only 12 people. It was an intimate setting. I also have to applaud the tour guide for being able to talk and drive his vehicle with such finesse and ease.. (The traffic at that time of the day was bad.) I appreciated the restroom stop at the Farmer's Market as well.

I would definitely recommend this tour to any of my friends.

Awesome Off Beat Tour !!!!!!!

If you are at all interested in the Manson Family murders of the 60's , this is the tour for you. Scott was a fountain of knowledge regarding all aspects of the Manson case. The tour covers all the local sites during the mayhem . Period music is played along with newsreel footage that puts you back into 1969.Great experience I cant say enough. My 17 year old daughter and I loved it. !Thanks, Scott!!!!
