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

This event definitely had a LOT of work behind it, from the research they had done looking through old newspapers to find the events, to mapping it out, to showing slides of newspaper photos on the bus screens, they thoughtfully used a huge bus...continued

I enjoyed it and the information provided was thorough and fun. As a bit of an architecture geek, however, I would have loved to hear more about the buildings and neighborhoods we stopped at as well as the crime stories. Also, the tour...continued

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

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.

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 The houses along the tour are charming and beautiful and its sad that so many have been replaced by modern buildings.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.

Some of the stories were interesting, but it was a very long 4 hours. Although the tour was supposed to concentrate on older stories, we heard a lengthy account of the murder of Marvin Gaye in 1984. We also stopped by several locations where there...continued

This is the second tour I've been on. It's a fun four hours of cool sites and information about the sometimes not-so-pleasant history of L.A.

Wish that more of the sites had the structure where the crime took place. It was not very interesting to look at a vacant lot or parking lot while listening to the narration. Tour guides appeared to be disorganized at times. Coffee was lukewarm.
