Hollywood is a one-of-a-kind experience. Whether you live here or are just visiting, you'll never forget this city. It's home to over 85,000 people, all with a story to tell...or sell, depending on who you're talking to. It's rich in history, gossip, and scandal. It's known for celebrities, though most now-a-days don't even live here...well... those of the living variety anyway.
"Hollywood is a place where they'll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and fifty cents for your soul.” ― Marilyn Monroe
So what exactly happens on this tour?
The basics are this: We meet in a haunted Hollywood bar, where we will have a small meet and greet. We then go over all of the equipment that you will use; what each piece does and how to use it. Next, we will begin the ghost hunting experience with attempting to communicate with spirits, while consuming some Spirits*.
From this first location, we will then proceed out of the bar and down The Hollywood Walk of Fame; visiting numerous locations, while trying to make contact with some of the ghosts that haunt this famous sidewalk.
Having extensive knowledge of all the locations that you will visit, along with Hollywood in general, your resident ghost hunter Linda, also provides a bit of history along the way. You'll hear about old Hollywood and some of the stories of those who have long since passed, but still wander through their favorite haunts.
This tour takes approximately two hours.
*Consuming alcoholic beverages is not required. Please don't feel pressured to do so.
On this tour you will learn the fundamentals of ghost hunting and one of the most important keys to this is the equipment. This is the ONLY tour in Los Angeles that uses actual ghost hunting equipment! All of the tools you will use are just like the ones you may have seen in paranormal television shows.
This is a list of some of the equipment you will get to use:
K2 Meter / EMF Detectors
Spirit Box / Ghost Box
EVP Voice Recorders
Infrared Thermal Cameras
And much more!
The K-2 meter reads electromagnetic frequencies. This allows the ghost hunter to better figure out where a spirit could be in a room or building. The higher the reading, the stronger the energy present; the more likely a spirit is around.
Frequently Asked Questions
1. Can you really find ghosts on Hollywood Blvd?
If I couldn't, I'd be out of business.
2. Do you have to be over 21?
For most of the tours...yes. We start and end the tour at bars. You will be carded.
3. Is there a tour for people under 21?
Yes! However, it is 'upon request' and is typically only done when no other tours are booked for the night. But please feel free to reach out!
4. Why is the age limit 18 for special requests?
I've had younger kids attend, and frankly, they get scared. The last thing I want to do is scare a kid.
5. But my kid is special. They watch all of the ghost shows and love it! Will you make an exception?
6. Does the tour accommodate people with disabilities?
As much as I possibly can. All of the locations we enter are wheelchair accessible and allow service animals. However, we are going to be traveling down one of the most crowded sidewalks in LA, please keep that in mind. Also, some of the things that can be experienced on the tour could be difficult for those with sight or hearing difficulties.
7. Do I need to buy alcohol on the tour?
No. It is not a requirement. However, the bars we go to would appreciate the business.
8. Am I guaranteed to have a paranormal experience?
Like life, there are no guarantees. Sorry, but as much as I wish I could, I have no control over the dead. However, we will be going to places that I've had experiences before.
9. Is the tour rain or shine?
Unfortunately not. The equipment is very water and temperature sensitive. But this is LA, so the likelihood of a freezing rain-out is minimal. However, if such a random occurrence were to happen, I will be very happy to reschedule at your convenience or issue a refund.
10. Are skeptics allowed?
Sure. However, all I ask is that you come with an open mind. We all want to have a great tour and a fun time.
11. Does this mean there is a 'jerk clause'?
