Really informative!

I really appreciated how they filled in moments between our destinations with other interesting tidbits. They really used the whole time. And even though the tour was intended to be a darker look at L.A., which it was, they still managed to keep things from being too heavy. It was really fun!

Real Information

This was not some guy saying what he 'heard about' in the area, it was clear information about true events that can be researched and confirmed. It was refreshing for someone who spends most times looking up details and obsessing over topics for a living. We were lucky to get Brian, just something about his memory and jokes made the 2 hours fly by and the break in between is at my favorite outdoor mall (The Grove), so that was an added bonus.

Anyone who lives in the area (I currently live in West Hollywood) or visiting (my sister visiting from Toronto, Canada), it is a must for a good laugh and a chilling true story.

Great tour to satisfy your morbid facinations

I thought the tour was great! My only complaint was that the van was HOT! They gave us fans after we mentioned it but it didn't help that much. So, hopefully they can fix their AC because I think the tour is well worth it.

This is not for the squeamish - but then why would anyone squeamish take such a tour? Our guide was super-enthusiastic, funny and very knowledgeable. Two hours well spent!

My daughter and I had a marvelous time with tour guide Brian. Learning about Hollywood history was such an unusual twist to our other activities. We highly recommend this for anyone 16 and above.

One of the best tours in LA!

This is the second time I've done the Helter Skelter tour and probably won't be the last. Scott has done an amazing job on bringing this tragic event to life - not to glorify it - but to remember it and chronicle it as a piece of history that has had far-reaching affects on society.

Retracing the steps of the victims and the killers on those two nights in August of '69 is something that can't be described - it must be experienced. Not only is Scott (and I'm sure the other tour guides as well) is very knowledgable about the case but also about Hollywood history and points out other significant landmarks of that 60's era.

I took my partner who had no knowledge of the case and she hasn't slept in two days since! Haha! Great stuff. Highly recommend it.

Brian is an extremely energetic tour guide. He gave us great detail in all information provided. Some gruesome photos were provided to accompany the dialogue.

The tour was really great!! The tour guide has a passion for crime history and knows so much about the area it was fascinating to listen to him. Great experience and would go back again!
