A friend was visiting from England & suggested the tour. I had raken another tour around Hollywood but didn't learn near as much as i did from this tour. We loved it!!!!! Our guide was very enthusiastic. You could tell he lives his job! Really want to take my husband with me next we can get a sitter & will definitely recommend to others! Thanks for a great moms' day out!

I think the tour would have been better had the AC been sufficient in the car. To sit in the car for 3 hours and 5 min wasn't ok. I felt trapped, hot and exhausted by the end. The tour itself was good but I think it was a hampered by the guide talking way too much about himself and his experiences. Many times not tying into or being that relevant to the tour. He was very nice, cordial and pleasant but just too much personal info that could have been replaced with tour material. By the end I was annoyed (could have been exacerbated by the heat) I would recommend the tour during the winter/fall time and perhaps with a different guide. thank you.

I had wanted to do this tour the last 2 times in LA and never got to. Finally this time it happened and I'm so glad I did it. There is not a negative thing I can say about it. Brian was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable and funny and friendly. We all laughed the whole time and I recommend the tour to everyone.

Ride was comfortable and easy for viewing. Learned quite a bit through several neighborhoods I somewhat knew. Brian (?) the guide was enthusiastic, eager to accommodate and full of fun antidotes.

Fun & Really Informative!

We took the tour to kick off the the greatest month of the year, October, and to celebrate my birthday! Which coincides with the unfortunate loss of Ms. Janis Joplin..

Brian was super knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He tried to make it as interactive as he could, our group seemed sleepy.... but my husband and I had a lot of fun! Word to the wise, sit on the drivers side of the van if you load in first, everything seemed to be on the left.... we were the last ones to load (got separated and stuck on the right).

Brian seemed appreciative to have locals on the tour, and we will probably come out and do it again or try a different tour.... always stuff to learn!!! Thanks for the great experience!

The tour was very informative, and had information I didn't know before. It was detailed with very graphic pictures and specific encounters of how much they suffered. In the end, it made me really sad for the victims and the loss of the families. I was shocked at how heartless and sadly twisted the murderers were!

In the description of the tour it said we were supposed to get a piece of Sharon Tate's house. But we never got it, that's the only thing that was left out.

5 stars, an unbelievable experience. The tour guide Brian was amazing, so nice, and very informative. He made the tour so much fun. This is a must do if you are in the LA area. No other tour like it.

The tour was the best, it was more than we expected, Brian was very knowledgeable and very entertaining.

We are definitely taking another tour or two a next year when we are in the LA area again. We have already recommended it to people we know. Very satisfied

Not bad

Some of the tour was good, think it was the old Hollywood actors we were going too rather than the new ones so some of the stars we hadn't even heard of

Totally worth it

I'd read quite a bit about the story many years ago, and always had a fascination. Scott has so much knowledge, and filled in many gaps. You get to see where everything happened, and in real time. I'm from Australia and it was one of the first things i did when i got to LA., so it also gave me a bit of a look around town in areas that i wouldn't normally have seen. If you're even a little bit fascinated by this story, it's well worth doing this tour.

I didn't know what this tour had in store for me. But it defied my expectations. I found out so many details about the Manson Family case that I'd never heard about. Recommend if you are into horror.
