Crime Bus Tours

Once or twice a month, we lead guided luxury Crime Bus Tours to scenes of mayhem and weirdness in the L.A. area. Past tours include Pasadena Confidential, Nightmares of Bunker Hill (downtown/Chinatown) and Black Dahlia Days, with new tours being developed regularly.

Want to be alerted when new Crime Bus Tours are scheduled? Contact us to get on our email list.  We can also prepare special tours for small groups, or visits from Crimebo the Crime Clown, who comes bearing tales of all the awful things that happened on your birthday or anniversary, headless balloon dogs and his own particular charm.
