Haunts of a Dirty Old Man is a fascinating four-hour guided bus tour that takes you to literary giant Charles Bukowski's favorite haunts -- all the places where the author lived, worked and drank. Visit the downtown postal sorting facility he writes about in Post Office, the De Longpre apartment he called home for a time, and other spots he visited regularly -- from Skid Row to Crown Hill to the East Hollywood liquor store The Pink Elephant.

From the start, it should be made clear on where to park your vehicle. They provide the following to meet at Phillipe and give the address, however not clear that you CAN NOT park in their lot. During the tour the speakers jumped around with topics, myself and the other two invitees where not sure at times who or what incident they were speaking about. Information with each incident would have been helpful to guide us through the tour and also to use as reference materials for later. The ending was having to walk thru the distant of cemetary with the incident not being very interesting. Couldn't remember the names of the individuas they spoke about also would have like more pictures or inside view. I, nor my guest would do this again. Sorry.
On the East Side Babylon Tour you'll discover fascinating, little-known neighborhoods and the grim memories they hold. Come visit Boyle Heights, where the Night Stalker was captured and a mad dad ran amok. Roam the hallowed lawns of Evergreen, L.A.'s oldest cemetery and home of some memorable haunts and strange burials. Visit East Los Angeles, where a deranged radio shop employee made mince meat of his boss and bride—and you can get your hair done in a building shaped like a giant tamale. Explore the ghastly streets of Commerce, where one small neighborhood's myriad crimes will shock and surprise. Visit Montebello, for scrumptious milk and cookies at Broguiere's Farm Fresh Dairy washed down with a horrifying case of child murder. All this, and so much more on East Side Babylon Tour, Esotouric's exploration of L.A.'s most horrifying forgotten crimes.
