The crime stuff was nicely mixed with social history which made for a rich experience. West Adams is a neighborhood that all Angelenos should know about since it played such a major role in the city's history. Tour guides Richard and Kim were...continued

Esotouric's Raymond Chandler's Los Angeles Bus Tour is one of their most special tours. This is my second time around for the tour, and over the years, the researchers at Esotouric unearth new material and locations in which to educate and excite...continued

Was interesting but the bus left late and stopped too long in the park.
Another feature that could have been done without was a lady who sang with a yukelali and was annoying.
The crime stuff was interesting.

Do NOT go on this tour. Nope. Don't do it. I should have listened to the other negative reviews. They were all spot on. What a frustrating waste of one of my few vacation days in LA.

There are two tour guides, a husband-wife team. The man does...continued

Our tour guides we're quite the characters themselves! They are very passionate about their job and very informed. In fact, they're such knowledgeable L.A. historians that they tend to go off on some awesome tangents but are really good about...continued

If you're a Black Dahlia obsessive, you'll love this tour. Filled with little known information presented in an interesting manner.

Great event! They did a great job and as an Angeleno, it was fun to see areas in downtown and Hollywood in a whole new light.

I really enjoyed this tour and learned a lot. The Tour Guides put in a lot of work and research and are very well versed in vintage Los Angeles and Hollywood History. There was a small glitch with the DVD Player which threw them off slightly but...continued

The tour was around the West Adams area of Los Angeles and we went to different locations and learned of true crimes that were committed there, generally during the early part of the 20th century. The husband and wife team are very passionate and...continued

The tour was somewhat interesting, but I was disappointed. It was easy to hear on the bus b/c the speakers had microphones, but it was very difficult to hear when we were not on the bus b/c the speakers had no microphones, and in some cases there...continued

You go on a bus (air conditioned thank God) and drive around LA while they tell you about the last days of Elizabeth Short's life before she was killed by the mad doctor and his Austrian girlfriend.

So interesting and very informative. The houses along the tour are charming and beautiful and its sad that so many have been replaced by modern buildings. I was impressed by the guides' obsession with keeping everyone hydrated. LOL.

This was my first time on the Esotouric bus. I found the Esotouric people personable, knowledgeable, and passionate about their subject, but I also felt that this passion got in the way of their message. They state clearly that the tour is not...continued

The tour was excellent, all due to the leaders of it. Richard and Kim's enthusiasm shone through as they provided a quirky, knowledgeable and fun way to explore Raymond Chandler's LA. I'm guessing that all of their tours are good.

Wonderful event, my friends and I really enjoyed it. This was my second trip with Esotouric and there was very little overlap with the prior trip. I'd go again. The only problem is one of the windows on the tour bus is damaged and you can't see...continued
