Our guide Austin was so friendly, knowledgeable and interesting. His tour was fun as well as informative. We had a small group which made it even better as we were able to ask lots of questions as we toured. Definitely recommend this your of you're looking for something different to do on an evening in Hollywood! Thankfully we didn't actually see any Ghosts on the tour!
