So average. There was four stops, we took a break in a bar for 20 mins. One of the stops was interesting, but well known, nothing you couldn’t do yourself with a bit of Googling.

Christine was wonderful. She was funny and serious when needed. There was even a stop at a historic bar and a spot for the underage crowd so we could all have refreshments. We had a great time!

Spooky time

The tour was fun but there were a lot less ghost stories than I had imagined. We only had 4 stops and there were lots of other tours around us so it got a bit crowded. The tour guide was good even though she was chugging straight vodka after our 15 minute break at a bar. It was fun but not great.

Group of 4 not impressed. Having done ghost tours in St Augustine and Williamsburg, this was lame. With all the history in LA, we expected more. Seemed more like a drinking tour with no alcohol included and tour guide talking about irrelevant things, personal stuff.
