Absolutely fantastic tour, highly recommend. If you are visiting L.A. you must go on this tour. It was booked by my wife who grew up with hip hop/ rap music, my son is really into it too. I’m more of of Motown Town fan and wasn’t sure this would be my ‘thing’. Originally I was going on the tour for them and as I didn’t really know what to expect I wasn’t overly excited by it. However, the music is only part of the culture, the tour takes you around the hood and you see, and experience, the life there first hand. Our guide, Big Mike, is fantastic, he is absolutely fascinating, I was never done asking him questions. Mike was born in the hood, he grew up there and still lives in Compton. He knows everyone. He has led a remarkable life, he’s 65 now so he’s seen, and done, a lot. He is very open and honest, just being able to meet him was worth the price of the trip alone. This was a private tour, me, my wife and my son, spent 3 hours with Mike driving around all the different places, stopping to take photos and learning all about the neighbourhoods. Being with Mike felt 100% safe, it’s clear he’s really respected in the area. We travelled to America from the UK and spent a fortnight in L.A., San Francisco & New York. It was a busy holiday, we did a lot. Out of all the places we went and things we did this Hood Life tour was by far the best experience. I hope to keep in touch with Mike and one day return to L.A., if I do I will be booking the Hood Life tour again - it was brilliant. Thanks Big Homie.

This tour was AMAZING! Big Mike is the absolute best. He has some amazing stories that really bring these locations to life. He fun and patient. This far exceeded my expectations. 10000/10, I advise anyone visiting LA to take this tour. It definitely shed new light on the famous streets of LA. It’s a lengthy tour and worth every moment! Oh yea, leave Big Mike a tip.

The hood life tour was the best tour I’ve taken in LA. Big Mike was awesome! It’s definitely a must do if you’re interested in learning about LA.

Microphone didn’t work half the time, went a hour late from scheduled time, got a funny feeling that it was made up about certain houses, took pictures of the addresses to look up after none of them were real celebrities houses! Scam scam scam
