We definitely felt safe with him walking along the streets with him. He was always aware and kept informing people to please respect us and leave us alone. He was well informed of the history and the major deaths of the city. I would definitely request him again and his tour.

Expectations were not only met, but they were exceeded by this 2 hour historical tour of Downtown Los Angeles. Dark and dirty secrets were revealed from the history of the Pico House, LA's first graveyard to mysterious disappearances at the Hotel Cecil and Biltmore Hotel. Our guide was not only incredibly knowledgeable but an incredible story teller. Would do it again!
