The L.A. Hood Life Tour is a must for anyone who comes to LA! And I'm not even a huge hip-hop fan. I did the tour with Big Mike yesterday and I think it's the best day tour I've ever done. He had so many incredible stories, I could have sat and listened to him for hours without even driving anywhere!

Did this tour with my mrs, and three kids. 12, 7 and 18 months. If you find rap and street gang life interesting or if you just want to experience something different then this is the tour for you!

Great to see some of the great rappers homes from around compton, visiting the projects and seeing the watts towers.

Our guide was mike.
Beyond knowledgable, this guy lived and breathed the hood life so everything that came out of his mouth was fascinating to me, no fakeness and no playing up and lying. He kept it totally real and gave us a raw insight into the neighbourhoods and his own life.

I wont spoil it by filling you guys in with too much info, but for me, this was a highlight of my two week vacation for not only me but my wife and son. Make sure you grab yourself a souvenir and a 40 from da liquor store next door!! Ha

Book with Hodari, you will not be dissapointed,
Thank you guys
