Learn about several unexplained and downright creepy encounters that have taken place here over these last one hundred years.

Find out where Marilyn Monroe still makes an appearance or two, or how a grisly murder led to the haunting of the world’s most famous theater courtyard.

What draws the otherworldly to Los Angeles?

As the second-largest city in the United States, plenty of people have made their way through to the City of Angels and failed to see their dreams come true. In a town that glorifies make-believe, separating reality from the glitzy façade can be extremely difficult. Our tour offers you an uncompromising look at what makes Los Angeles such a haunted location.

Loss and disappointment are common themes in these stories; it’s easy to understand how Los Angeles has become such a hotbed for paranormal activity. Even as big corporate investors are revitalizing the area, remnants of a seedy past, full of failures peek through the cracks, whether through a grand bank building, or an abandoned studio theater, one of the largest ever built in the United States.

Sure, you can read about the ghosts of Hollywood, but experiencing the tragedy and failure that underlies the city of angel’s smiling exterior, in person, and at night will make you feel like you are a part of the city’s strange and ghostly history.

Reserve your tour today and experience the side of Los Angeles that Hollywood does not want you to know about!

The movies are where the magic is made, and the magicians who create the movies all admire real-life magicians. The LA Ghosts tour passes by one of the most revered places for many magicians to visit. It’s a strictly members-only institution where an invitation is as hard to find as a rabbit in a hat.

Originally the exotic-looking château style home of industrialist Rollin B. Lane, the 1909 structure is now The Magic Castle. An exclusive club for magicians and illusionists to show their routines to the most discerning crowd in the world – other magicians.

With so much magic around, it’s a shame they have been unable to protect themselves from being haunted. A ghostly presence backstage has verbally intimidated several performers, causing one heading on to the stage in the late 80s to tear apart the green room looking for the source of the cruel taunts he heard before his show.

The ghost of Rollin B. Lane also still roams the halls, he might know something about another mysterious presence in the basement. The basement is also home to the specter of a young girl. The Magic Castle will share more of its tricks with you on the LA Ghosts Tour.

Many guests on our tour have experienced unexplained events. We invite you to become one them.

LA Ghosts Tour takes you through 8 or 12 different sites around the Hollywood Boulevard area, each one ratcheting up the tension. Meet your experienced tour guide outside of the El Capitan Theatre, 6838 Hollywood Blvd , at least 15 minutes before your tour’s scheduled departure time. The standard tour takes about an hour and walks you through several landmark locations in the area. If you select the extended tour, you will get another 40 minutes of chilling stories and historical locations!

The LA Ghosts walking tour is a great way to see the amazing sites of Hollywood Boulevard while also getting your fill of the ghostly atmosphere of the city’s most haunted locations. This tour is perfect for first-time visitors to Los Angeles and seasoned locals alike!

Our Los Angeles Ghost Tour is a family-friendly attraction, and it is suitable for everyone, so bring your kids, friends, or a date! We’ll make sure that you have an informative, memorable, and slightly terrifying night. Keep in mind that tours fill up quickly, so reserve your spot early through our website.

With so many tours and activities to choose from LA Ghosts, how do you choose which ones to book?

5 reasons to book your la ghosts tour right now.

You want to immerse yourself in the spooky history of Tinsel Town

Reasons

Soak up some fascinating history on your tour as well as hearing about the deplorable side of the City of Angels.  In a town where everyone’s got a story, sticking to the facts takes dedication and perseverance. Our tour is painstakingly researched and based on facts from the history books and recorded first person accounts of hauntings and ghostly sightings.

Los Angeles, like so much of southern California, was initially settled by Spanish Mexico, later absorbed into the United States after the Mexican War. The small city of Los Angeles struggled initially and focused on selling the sunshine of California as a health tonic to the pale, sickly workers of the East Coast (or so they were depicted).  The movie industry came later, and really got going with the arrival of Cecil B. DeMille. Weak Unions and plentiful labor with cheap space for studios made it a small rival for the established studios in the North East US.

The 40s and 50s with the Hollywood Red Scare, and the Golden age of the studio system established Hollywood’s reputation and opened the floodgates of people seeking fame and fortune, but the ghosts were already here.

The Hollywood sign even has its own hauntings and spooky stories. In 1930 the sign was still in its original form, reading ‘HOLLYWOODLAND’ it promoted a new housing development. Aspiring actress Peg Entwistle tasted fame, following the time-honored tradition of an ‘and’ career Actress ‘and’ stage bit player, she also went to parties with Hollywood’s royalty hoping to be noticed. The strategy worked, she appeared in one film, Thirteen Women (1932), but then she hit a dead end. Drinking, drugs, and depression ensued, and after one heavy night of drinking, she scaled all 50 feet of the first ‘H’ and plunged to her death.

Since then several sightings by hikers and even motorists have kept the story of Peg Entwistle alive and her spirit haunting the H in Hollywood.

You are looking to get to know the LA story

LA has the movies, but it’s still a city like any other, and even LA felt the effects of the Great Depression. The beautiful Hollywood First National building opened as a mixed-use building as high as was possible at the time, with ‘ultra-modern fixtures’ it was, for a while, a desirable location.

Then disaster struck, the Great Depression affected the owners. The building ran into trouble and became run down with the economic difficulties affecting many of the tenants, this led to one tense showdown where a tenant on the upper floors kidnapped his secretary and threatened her with a gun. The police attempted a daring raid, but it backfired and the gunman was tackled just after he had killed the secretary, and in the struggle he tried to shoot himself, maiming his face.

To this day a mutilated ghost patrols the building, which is perhaps why it remains empty and haunted.

Our tour is full of detailed insights into the lives, loves, and losses of the characters who helped build Hollywood and its storied legend.

You need something to do with the whole family

Hollywood is a family-friendly area today, our tour of LA’s Ghosts continues in this vein. We welcome people of all ages on the tour and offer entertainment and history for everyone. Our stories are scary, but we aim just short of terrifying, leaving most of the gore and guts to the imagination.

Some of the stories we tell are of benevolent hauntings, some might even be downright cute! Ghosts come in as many guises are there are living spirits to create them.

For example, the ghost that hoovers up the popcorn littered rows of The Egyptian Theatre has never been seen, but rumor has it the creature snuffles a lot like a pig, and if you drop your glasses and come face to face with it, you’ll only hear it, and see the seats move as it scurries away, startled. But bear in mind this has been going on for years…

You are looking for a new angle on the same old Hollywood Stories

Everyone knows the one in a million Hollywood stories that end in fame and fortune, with a career on the silver screen being adored by millions. But Hollywood has a different side. A darker side. Some stories don’t have a happy ever after, these are the Hollywood that most people experience, and we proudly present their stories for your entertainment, shock and awe!

Let us tell you about the misdeeds, mishaps, and miscreants that haunt Tinsel Town today and are, in our opinion better stories than most of what you will see at the movies today.

Take for instance the intrepid reporter convinced that the infamous Hollywood Wax Museum ® was not haunted despite all the tales and first-hand accounts to the contrary.

He decided to sleep inside the museum one night, with the agreement of the staff. The next morning the staff opened the doors, the journalist was in one piece, but pale and visibly shaken by what he saw. But what did he see?

Well, join the tour and we will tell you everything he saw that night.  You won’t find it in any newspaper though, he said he could not explain what he saw, and would not write about it until he could explain it.

You don’t care where today's celebrities live!

The ghost stories on LA Ghosts features the stars of every era of the silver screen. But you won’t see any celebrity houses on our tour. You’ll see the theatres that have seen the grandest openings, the glitziest premiers, and more collective Oscars than Katherine Hepburn (with a lifetime total of four, still the most ever!). What you will see is the struggle, the desire, and the passion that has made this town a mecca for the spirits that just can’t let go and haunt the places they remain attached to.

Hollywood has a special feel, we will reveal a new layer to the story for you, for your family, for your date, even for your next staycation. Everyone on an LA Ghosts tour will learn something new about the ghosts of LA.

We’ve rounded up the best haunted houses in Los Angeles, along with some other spooky attractions across the city

Michael Juliano

What’s Halloween without a few good scares? The best haunted houses in Los Angeles run the gamut from homegrown horrors to big-budget amusement park productions—unsurprisingly, the home of Hollywood horror films takes its Halloween events   very seriously. Whatever thrills you, whether it’s a hayride in Griffith Park  or immersive theater at an old estate in Pomona (or perhaps some real-life haunted places ), we’ve got it in this year’s list of the city’s best haunted houses in L.A.

You’ll be able to navigate multiple scare zones and mazes, including ones based on The Last of Us ,  Stranger Things ,  Evil Dead Rise , The Purge , The Exorcist: Believer ,  Chucky and more. Go early in the season to cut down on wait times, or—if you can afford it—consider an express pass.

Delusion

  • Interactive
  • Nov 19, 2023

Its past installments have found attendees stealthing their way through a Victorian home and embarking on a  Blade Runner -esque bounty hunt. And now this event—part interactive theater, part narrative-based haunted house—heads back a nearly 150-year-old mansion in Pomona for an anthology of tales centered around the Author, a mysterious figure who made all previous Delusion installments a reality—and though he’s gone missing, his ghastly creations haven’t. You can also float between rooms of the mansion, and even get a peek behind the scenes with a VIP ticket.

Knott’s Scary Farm

Los Angeles Haunted Hayride

Los Angeles Haunted Hayride

Far from those kid-friendly rides through a pumpkin patch, this hayride unleashes all sorts of demons and bogeys on Griffith Park. Like so many pop culture horror experiences recently, this year’s Haunted Hayride once again rewinds the action to the mid-’80s in the ficticious town of Midnight Falls. The event—which this year promises new wagons and scenes and updated effects—will be centered around the jack-o’-lantern–filled Midnight Falls Town Square, with a creaky old funeral parlor set up in the Midnight Mortuary Haunted House as well as axe throwing, water balloon-based paintball and the Hellbilly Halloween maze.

Shaqtoberfest

Shaqtoberfest

He’s a Lakers legend, an NBA commentator, a rapper, a DJ and a mid-’90s movie genie, and now you can add haunted house MC to that list: Shaquille O’Neal will once again attach his name to this family-friendly carnival and assembly of haunted houses on the grounds of the Queen Mary. We’ve specifically added it to this list now that the oceanliner is open again; as a result, this year’s event will include a search for spirits in the belly of the ship (à la the former Dark Harbor ).

The Ultimate Haunted Hollywood Tour

Do you believe in ghosts? The Ultimate Haunted Hollywood Tour is our freakiest and most popular haunted sightseeing tour in Los Angeles and honestly if nothing else will convince you, maybe this tour just might. On this tour, you will be transported from your local point of origin to the most freaky places in Los Angeles.

The tour begins as we swing by for a little visit to Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Memorial Park & Mortuary. This cemetery and mortuary is located in the Westwood Village area of Los Angeles. The cemetery was originally established as Sunset Cemetery in 1905, but had been used for burials since the 1880s. In 1926 the name was officially changed to Westwood Memorial Park and was later changed again to Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Memorial Park & Mortuary. Lots of different names are resting here too.

Although it is the final resting place of some of the entertainment industry’s greatest names, it also contains the graves of many uncelebrated people. For example, when Marilyn Monroe died in 1962, Joe DiMaggio, responsible for Monroe’s arrangements, chose Westwood not because of its celebrities but because it was the resting place of her mother’s friend, Grace Goddard, and Goddard’s aunt, Ana Lower, both of whom had cared for Monroe as a child. Some notable resters include Rodney Dangerfield, Carl Wilson from The Beach Boys, Dean Martin, Jack Lemon, Walter Matthau, Hugh Hefner and this list goes on and on.

Next, we drive past the The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills where there is no longer a room #434. Well, there was. Due to a huge demand for the storied room, it was retired as a place of rest for curious guests. In February of 2012, singer Whitney Houston was found dead in the bathtub of suite #434.

We will also the visit the site where one of the most gruesome, infamous and notorious murders of our time was committed on AUGUST 8th, 1969 when Charles Manson’s “Family” descended on Roman Polanski’s residence on Cielo Drive in Beverly Hills and brutally murdered 5 people including Polanski’s wife, actress Sharon Tate. While the original house no longer exists, filmmaker David Oman built his house a mere 150 feet from the site where the grisly murders took place.

Oman, who lives a couple houses down the street, is convinced that the murder victims still haunt his residence to this day. And he is not the only one. Paranormal experts and psychics from the world over have visited Oman’s residence and have dubbed it “The Mount Everest of haunted houses” and “The Disneyland for the Dead” for the amount of paranormal activity that occurs there. Oman’s house has also been featured on “Ghost Hunters,” “My Ghost Story,” “Paranormal Witness,” “Haunted History” and “Ghost Adventures” and has rated the #1 most viewed episode for each of the programs. The release of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and the 50th anniversary of the murders that occurred near the home has created a huge upswing in interest in Sharon Tate and this uniquely designed house of ghosts steps away.

After a creepy drive past the Oman House and Manson murder location, we drive by the Hollywood Forever Cemetery which is both a world famous landmark cemetery in the heart of Hollywood and an important cultural event center in Los Angeles. The cemetery features outdoor classic film screenings, concerts, literature events, lectures, and also the largest Dia de Los Muertos event in the United States.

Other freaky places that are included (time permitting includes the home where Michael Jackson died in Beverly Hills, The Chateau Marmont where John Belushi died, Cedar Sinai Hospital (where the stars go to live and die), The Viper Room where River Pheonix died of a drug overdose, and more.

This private tour is expertly guided and round trip transportation from your point of origin is included throughout. Enjoy as you are entertained by your knowledgeable, friendly, and fun tour guide, a hospitality professional of the highest degree. This tour is an exquisite, private guided experience of the back stories and ghosts that you will not hear elsewhere.

So what are you waiting for? Book your Los Angeles ghost tour today! WHY IS LOS ANGELES SO HAUNTED? Los Angeles is the home of the American Dream. People flock to LA aspiring to make it on the big screen. But before Hollywood was the center of the world, it was a lush desert inhabited by the Tongva and Chumash tribes. The Spanish claimed the region in the 1540s as part of the colony of New Spain. The area was inhabited mainly by Spanish missionaries and rancheros for centuries. When New Spain achieved independence from Spain, Los Angeles became the capital of Alta California. California became an American territory after the Mexican-American War, and railroad lines were extended to the city shortly afterward. Petroleum was discovered in California in the late 1800s, which led to rapid growth at the turn of the century. This put pressure on the city's water supply, marking the beginning of the still hotly contested problem of California's water rights. At the same time, the film industry was rapidly growing in Hollywood, which merged with Los Angeles in 1910. After World War II, suburbanization led to massive sprawl. Development spread into the nearby San Fernando Valley and gave birth to LA's infamous car culture. Racial tensions also intensified as the city saw major riots in the 1960s and 1990s. Today, Los Angles is still the film capital of the world, as well as a hub for music, culture, and technological innovation. But sunny Los Angeles has a dark underbelly, one ruled by ghosts! The haunts are abound in LA, with spooky stories at every turn. The gruesome Black Dahlia Murder remains one of the city's most notorious unsolved murders. The killing has become Hollywood folklore, with rumors and speculations still swirling to this day. The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel is said to host the spirit of Marylin Monroe, who's been spotted in her old suite, as well as several other famous ghosts. Patrons of the Comedy Store claim to hear bloodcurdling screams, gunfire, and cries for help coming from the lower floors. But there's no comedy without tragedy!

13 Insanely Haunted Places to Visit in Los Angeles

Looking for the most haunted places to visit in Los Angeles?

You’ve come to the right place.

Los Angeles is one of America’s shining jewels.

Home to history, high finance, and of course Hollywood, there’s so much to see and do in the City of Angels.

With the region’s story spanning back hundreds of years to the time of the Spanish missionaries, it’s only natural that Los Angeles would also be the site of more paranormal activity than almost any other place in the United States.

1) Wonderland Murders House

Photo credit: flickr/leavetheguntakethecannoli

This was the site of a grisly murder committed by porn star John Holmes.

The story goes he used a lead pipe to murder four drug dealers here.

The act of vigilante justice (or was it?) inspired the Val Kilmer movie Wonderland and along the way created one of the most haunted locales to check out in Los Angeles.

The ghosts here are angry, and will sometimes push and pull at visitors, especially at night.

Get too close to the TV, and the supernatural activity intensifies.

Don’t change the channel, they’re watching it.

It’s all they’ve got anymore.

Address: 8763 Wonderland Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90046

2) “The Entity” House

Photo credit: roadtrippers.com

Some haunted places to check out in Los Angeles aren’t all fun and games.

They’re truly terrifying!

Such is the case with this house formerly owned by Doris Bither.

She was the victim of incredibly violent spectral assaults by poltergeists.

They would throw objects around and physically attack her, to the point that she and her family fled.

The poltergeists followed them, to their extreme dismay.

The events at this cursed home were so shocking that they inspired a horror movie.

The Entity , released in 1981 and 2012, dramatizes the events as Hollywood does.

However, there is a horrifying core of truth to the tale.

A recent visitor who consulted  telephone psychics , prior to visiting, was advised to stay away from this home.

She chose to do otherwise and since that day reports problems with severe nightmares.

Address: 11547 Braddock Drive Culver City , CA 90230

3) The Old Zoo, Griffith Park

Photo credit: flickr/disneykrayzie

No longer operational as a zoo, this is now a cute picnic area where you can see the caves and pens once inhabited by tigers and lions and bears.

At least, that’s during the day.

At night, the Old Zoo is among the little-known haunted places to spend time at in Los Angeles.

The animal spirits are active here, and their chitters and cries are downright unnerving.

Spirits can impart emotions on the living, and a feeling of fear and panic permeates the zoo.

Turn on the recorder and you might catch an EVP of wolf howls.

Address: 4730 Crystal Springs Dr. Los Angeles, CA 90027

4) Silent Movie Theatre

Photo credit: stageandcinema.com

This historic theatre has stood since 1942.

Although silent films were long dead and gone by that time, the theatre was intended to celebrate their history.

A later owner of the building, actor Lawrence Austen, was shot and killed by his boyfriend who worked as a projectionist.

The girl working the concession counter was left for dead in the shooting, but she survived and was a great help to the police.

It’s become one of LA’s great scary places to tour.

Ever since that day, Lawrence has appeared to young women in the theatre on occasion.

They say he’s looking for the one who was present at his murder, perhaps to thank her for bringing the projectionist to justice.

Address: 611 N. Fairfax Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90036

5) Beverly Hills Bermuda Triangle

Photo credit: Dearly Departed Tours

Something is weird about this spot in Beverly Hills.

It’s definitely one of the strangest paranormal places to visit in LA, but the forces at work here go beyond ghosts and spirits.

It’s just bad luck, this place.

Howard Hughes crashed a plane here.

Bugsy Siegel was murdered here.

Jan & Dean almost died in a truly bizarre car accident.

A successful publicist was killed here in a seemingly random drive-by shooting.

A few spiritual advisors, who normally give psychic readings online , visited the area in-person and reported intense feelings of anger and confusion.

Clairvoyants often experience jumbled visions of pain and suffering.

The stories go on and on and they won’t stop.

What is going on here?

Some parts of the world act as loci for supernatural forces, and it appears that Los Angeles is home to such a place.

Address: N. Linden Dr. and N. Whittier Dr. Beverly Hills, CA 90210

6) Hollywood Wax Museum

Photo credit: flickr/pawoodhead

This staple of the Hollywood tourism scene also happens to be a great haunted place to see in Los Angeles.

Although the figures here are all wax replicas, it seems even some ghosts can’t tell the difference by looking.

A woman has been seen praying on a bench before the representation of The Last Supper.

She’s typically seen in the early morning before the museum opens, or late at night.

When approached by security guards, she simply disappears.

They say she never appears on camera, even though multiple people swear they have seen her.

Her identity is unknown.

Address: 6767 Hollywood Blvd. Hollywood, CA 90028

7) Hollywood Pacific Theatre

Photo credit: flickr/specialagent

The Hollywood Pacific Theatre is historic, swanky, famous, and one of the very scary places to check out in Los Angeles.

The place suffers under an actual curse, cast by one of the Warner Bros. of all people.

Sam Warner was so upset that construction didn’t finish in time for the premiere of The Jazz Singer in 1928 that he cursed the place.

It seems to have backfired, as he died of a freak cerebral hemorrhage the day before the New York premiere of the film.

Today, his ghost has been seen all over the theatre, especially in the lobby and offices.

Address: 6433 Hollywood Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90028

8) Hollywood Forever Cemetery

Photo credit: flickr/khrkhr

As the final resting spot of luminaries like Alfred Hitchcock and Dee Dee Ramone, it’s no wonder that this graveyard is one of LA’s most ghost-infested spots.

If you dare to visit, you may see more than you bargain for.

There are numerous ghosts here, from a weeping woman who appears by a lake (it’s said that she is the spirit of Virginia Rappe), to groups of people dressed in period clothing.

The identity of these people are unknown.

They’re not movie stars.

Could they be cemetery visitors from yesteryear, reenacting the rituals of their old lives?

Whoever they are, they’re ephemeral.

Graveyard staff reports seeing them walk through walls.

Address: 6000 Santa Monica Boulevard Los Angeles, CA 90038

9) Thriller House

Photo credit: flickr/pjraval

Not exactly qualifying as one of the haunted places to visit in the City of Angels, this is still a real treat for the paranormal enthusiast.

This old Victorian style house in Angelino Heights was featured in Michael Jackson’s Thriller video.

Yes, this is the house those zombies pounded on after Mikey and his girlfriend ran for what seemed like years.

The house is in a bit better shape than depicted in the video, but will still send a thrill down your spine, no pun intended!

For a little extra fun, head two doors down to see the house from TV’s Charmed .

Address: 1345 Carroll Avenue Los Angeles, CA 90026

10) Linda Vista Hospital

Photo credit: flickr/neilarmstrong2

Absolutely one of the scariest haunted places in Los Angeles, the Linda Vista Hospital has a long and storied history.

The place was downright infamous for its multitude of strong and malevolent spirits who loved to toy with hapless visitors and determined ghost hunters alike.

The hospital closed in 1991, and stood abandoned for years.

Today, the location has been renovated as senior housing.

The ghosts are still there, though, and certain hallways and especially the former boiler room are avoided by the staff and residents.

Address: 610-30 S. St. Louis St. Los Angeles, CA 90023

11) Boris Karloff’s Rose Garden

Famous horror actor of yesteryear Boris Karloff ( Frankenstein, Curse of the Crimson Altar ) was an avid gardener in his time.

His gardens were so beautiful that some of his friends made a highly unusual request.

They wished for their ashes to be scattered amongst the roses, so that they could enjoy them for all eternity.

As a good friend and the possessor of somewhat macabre taste, Boris obliged.

By doing so, he created one of L.A.’s most haunted places to tour.

Visitors to the gardens today can very clearly feel the presence of Karloff’s friends.

They’re peaceful, and most agree the haunting enhances the ambience of the gardens.

It’s still pretty creepy.

Address: 2320 Bowmont Dr. Beverly Hills, CA 90210

12) Bela Lugosi’s Apartment

Photo credit: flickr/matthh

Another luminary of the old horror movie industry, Bela Lugosi is most famous as the man who gave life to Dracula .

Bela loved his fine cigars, and made a daily trek on foot to a nearby cigar shop.

The tall man died of a heart attack in 1956, to the mourning of the horror-loving nation.

His spirit gave one last spooky farewell to his fans, cementing his apartment as one of Los Angeles’s greatest haunted places to tour.

As the hearse carrying his body passed the apartment, it started driving itself, to the driver’s shock.

The hearse kept going on its stately journey, but made a slight detour.

It went right past Lugosi’s favorite cigar shop, at which point the driver regained control.

Address: 5620 Harold Way Los Angeles, CA 90027

13) American Horror Story House

Photo credit: flickr/fatalblades

The filming location of the first season of American Horror Story , the Rosenheim Mansion easily tops the list of the most haunted places to visit in Los Angeles.

There’s something just downright creepy about this place.

You can feel it.

Although the murders depicted in the TV show didn’t occur here, it’s impossible not to wonder what did go down here.

Psychic sensitives have issues entering the house.

Their abilities go haywire, overloading them with information, and some have been known to suffer from migraines or pounding headaches.

Ghosts and spirits have been seen here for years, which was a large factor in the house’s selection as the so-called “murder house”.

They’re indistinct, but incredibly numerous.

People often feel crowded and suffocated in the house, especially in the grand dining room.

Address: 1120 Westchester Place Los Angeles, CA 90019

We did The Real Hollywood tour & loved it! The tour was at a great pace & the guide (Vicky) was very knowledgeable & made the tour fun. Thank you!

Stuart was so knowledgeable & was worth the day with him. I had been to LA multiple times before but this is the first time I had taken a tour – so thrilled to have this experience with my mom & sister. I would recommend this tour again & again.

Lucrezia Scamarcio

We had an amazing DTLA Murder Mystery Ghost tour with Damien & Dante… thank you very much from the Italian girls… very interesting & funny… absolutely recommended!

This tour was awesome! Stuart is very knowledgeable, likeable & fun. The stops on the tour were very interesting & I learned a lot. I’ve been on quite a few tours of this nature & this was one of my favorites – highly recommend!

Did a walking tour of LA (LA in a Day). Vicky started us off with the Hollywood tour & Damien (who is also the owner) was our guide for the rest of the day. The entire day was awesome, I suggest this tour. There isn’t that much walking, to be honest. It’s very fun!

Michelle B.

My boyfriend & I took the DTLA Murder Mystery Ghost tour with Stuart as our guide & had the most amazing time! We had experiences we will never forget! We were able to see parts & people of Los Angeles that we never would have without Stuart. I give this 10/10. If we visit again, this will be at the top of our to do list!

Sara Pozueta

Absolutely amazing! Highly recommend taking both The Real Hollywood Tour & the Central Downtown LA tour! Our time in LA wouldn’t have been the same. Great way to learn about the city, see it from a different angle, explore the local life & learn about its history & filming industry. Damien our guide was fantastic!

Sylvie was our host & was fantastic. She had a lot of local knowledge & gave her unique perspective as someone who had moved to the area many years ago, so she had an outsider’s as well as an insider’s perspective. The tour gave us a great overview of Santa Monica & Venice & set us up for a great rest of the day.

Paula Lindgren

We took 2 tours, the Santa Monica & Venice Bike tour (with Sylvie) & the Real Hollywood tour (with Damien). Both were great & highly recommended. Sylvie & Damien were informative, knowledgeable & easy to talk to. They were like you were with friends. We were traveling as a family of 4 with 2 boys (15 & 12). We all enjoyed the tours.

DTLA Murder Mystery Ghost Tour

youtube-video-thumbnail

$50 / pp Free / ghost (any age)

2 miles An easy walking distance

6pm – 9pm (3 hours) Saturday

On our DTLA Murder Mystery Ghost tour we go on an investigation of the noir underbelly of Los Angeles – and enjoy cocktails in a couple of haunted bars.

First we visit the Biltmore Hotel, the last place the tragic Black Dahlia, Elizabeth Short, was seen alive. Next we stop at Clifton’s and learn about the anti-corruption drive of its Christian founder (who had a few secrets of his own). After that we move to the dreaded Hotel Cecil, which has a hellish history of murders, suicides and killers (including the Night Stalker). From there our DTLA Murder Mystery Ghost tour moves to the once grand Alexandria Hotel, where Rudolph Valentino’s ghost still haunts his old penthouse, then the Barclay Hotel, home to two serial killers – and also the scene of some of their most brutal murders. We visit the site of the Chinatown Massacre of 1871 (still the largest mass lynching in US history), before the tour finishes at the Halls of Justice, the site of many dramatic trials, including those of Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel (twice) and the infamous Charles Manson. Join our DTLA Murder Mystery Ghost tour and have sleepless nights for weeks!

List of Services

The Formosa Café was founded by 1920s prize-fighter Jimmy Bernstein in 1925, and in the decades that followed it build up a loyal clientele. The Samuel Goldwyn movie studio used to sit opposite the cafe, and stars including James Dean, Clark Gable, and Humphrey Bogart are among the famous names to have regularly enjoyed a drink and a meal here. Read more on this iconic Hollywood cafe in our Haunting of the Formosa Café blog.

This 100-acre cemetery is the final resting place for some of the brightest lights of stage and screen. It opened at the turn of the 19th century, and over the years parts of the grounds have been sold off – most notably 40 acres went to Paramount Studios. Famous stars including Mickey Rooney, Dee Dee Ramone, and Cecil B. DeMille are all interred here, and you can check out our blog for more info.

The story of LA itself begins here, a corner of the landscape that the invading Spanish forces first saw from the sea in the 1700s. To keep the area now known as California out of the clutches of the Russian Empire –  who had already claimed Alaska as their own – the Spanish sent 11 families from the Sinaloa region of Mexico to settle here in 1781. The Mexican marketplace on Olvera Street is enduring proof of the social and cultural mark that was made here. 

The Ávila Adobe was constructed in 1818 by Don Francisco Jose Ávila, a wealthy ranchero and mayor of the pueblo of Los Angeles in the early 19th century. It’s the oldest residence in the entire city, and takes pride of place by historic Olvera Street.

This historic house was LA’s first Mexican restaurant, and first opened its doors on April 30, 1930, for the opening night party of Olvera Street. The cafe brought traditional Mexican flavors to the neighborhood, along with lively mariachi bands and colorful dancers. More recently, the cafe is said to be haunted by the ghost of La Golondrina – a figure usually seen moving around the upper floors.  

Construction began on Pico House in 1869, with the goal of creating the most luxurious hotel west of the Mississippi River. The man behind the building was a successful businessman by the name of Don Pío de Jesús Pico – the last governor of California under Mexican rule. In its heyday the hotel was a fine and well respected establishment, but its location at the site of the bloodiest riot in Los Angeles history meant it wasn’t all plain sailing.

This impressive bas-relief military memorial is the largest of its kind in the entire US, and stands in remembrance of the Mormon Battalion, the U.S. 1st Dragoons, and the New York Volunteers – who raised the American flag over the fort on July 4, 1847. And underneath the hill, less than a century later, a geological engineer thought he could find gold there as well as an ancient race of lizard people? You have to hear this story!

The Cecil Hotel is widely thought to be among the world’s most haunted hotels, with a string of unexplained accidents, deaths, murders, and suicides to its name. Perhaps the most famous is the story of 21-year-old Canadian student Elisa Lam, whose body was discovered in the hotel’s water tank, two weeks after her planned check-out. 

Once the pride of Los Angeles, the Biltmore Hotel has a markedly troubled past – it's the site of some of LA’s most gruesome murders and unexplained hauntings. Few have captured the public’s imagination more than the story of Elizabeth Short – better known as ‘the Black Dahlia’. She headed out for an evening at the Biltmore in 1947, and was discovered the next morning in a field outside town, her torso sliced in half and drained of blood. The case remains unsolved to this day.

The Hollywood Tower Hotel is said to be the inspiration behind the popular Disney theme park ride, The Tower of Terror. The tower's colorful reputation includes gangsters throwing their enemies from the high windows, Los Angeles Mafia connections, disgruntled mob bosses, and illicit murder-for-hire deals.

Mystery surrounds this impressive old hotel, built in 1929 and opened as the Hollywood Knickerbocker Hotel. Over the decades famous faces came and went including Laurel and Hardy, Frances Farmer, and even Elvis Presley – who stayed in room 1016 during filming of 'Love Me Tender’ (1956). Renowned Hollywood costume designer Irene Lentz notoriously committed suicide here by leaping from her 11th-floor room window, though the hotel’s backstory isn’t all bad... This is the place where Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio would sneak to during their secret affair. Following their marriage, they even returned to the Knickerbocker to celebrate their honeymoon.

The annual Academy Awards ceremony regularly ticks over the 3-hour mark these days, but in its early years it lasted 15 minutes, and took place here at the Roosevelt. The hotel was built by Louis B. Meyer, Sid Grauman, Douglas Fairbanks, and Mary Pickford - the latter two being Hollywood’s first power couple. Stories of hauntings here include guests splashing around in the apparently empty swimming pool, the swing and crack of ball-player and ex-resident Babe Ruth in training on the rooftop, and the ghostly reflection of Marilyn Monroe in her own bedroom mirror. 

Once just a lemon grove, the land that the Charlie Chaplin Studios sits on was bought by the actor in the earliest days of Hollywood’s rising fame and fortune. From 1917 to 1953 the studios produced classics including ‘The Kid’ (1921), though today the property is owned by Jim Henson Studios. Keen-eyed visitors will spot Kermit the Frog atop the studio tower, dressed in Chaplin’s famously ill-fitting suit as a fond nod to the original owner.
