The Haunt

Private Los Angeles Ghost Tours

Private SF Ghost Tours

Private ghost hunting adventures in Los Angeles

The perfect event for team outings, birthdays and funerals.

The Haunt is a hands-on ghost adventure through the streets of Chinatown, Los Angeles. Time travel to Chinatown as it looked in the 1930’s, seeking out evidence of the paranormal and hearing unforgettable tales from the city’s haunted past.

Everyone will get to carry their own EMF detector during the tour, and your guide will bring other modern ghost hunting tools, which will be used throughout the tour.

We think of this as more than “just a ghost tour,” with a perfect blend of haunted history, engaging storytelling, stunning architecture, and real ghost hunting.


Tour Overview

For private tours, we recommend kicking off at a nearby bar like Songbird Cafe or General Lee’s, then walking over to meet us at Broadway Cuisine (or having dinner there!).

Your tour guide will outfit everyone with EMF meters that you’ll use throughout the paranormal investigation, and explain the types of hauntings and ghosts that we encounter in Los Angeles.

From there we’ll enter the old neighborhood, hearing about the forgotten graves buried beneath us.

We’ll visit the Chinatown metro station, and hear of the cemeteries discovered as the metro was being constructed. Nearby is an old milling warehouse that may be haunted by the ghosts of two employees whose tragic deaths 100 years ago still linger.

In Chinatown’s Central Plaza, discover stunning architecture and learn of the communities that were here before, including early Italian and French communities.

At any point, we might detect EMF activity, and we’ll investigate further using tools such as dowsing rods and a Spirit Box.

We’ll end the investigation with a ceremony to honor whatever spirits joined us, with music, a candle, and a few rituals to ensure that nothing follows you home.

After the tour, we recommend you visit the nearby bars, so you can end your evening with one last spirit.

What’s Included 


We meet and end near Chinatown Central Plaza.

We can meet your group at a nearby bar (Songbird Cafe and General Lee’s are our top bets) to kick things off, and walk you to a nearby bar to continue the evening.

We end right next to General Lee’s, which is a great post-tour spot for drinks 🙂

We currently cannot customize the route or content beyond this.

In our experience, this doesn’t quite work! The 1.75 hour tour turns into a 4 hour event, and our tour guides are usually booked with back-to-back events.

Instead, we suggest meeting for a drink before the tour, then heading off to another watering hole once you survive the journey.

Now that’s a lot of spirits!

We think so! The tour does include some talk of violence and the macabre, but is generally considered family-friendly.

There are no shock/scare moments.

Explore Chinatown! We recommend:

  • Drinks – General Lee’s and Melody Lounge for cocktails and DJ’s
  • Food – Suehiro Mini (ramen), Full Moon House (Chinese)

Yes, the tour is wheelchair- and stroller-friendly.

We regularly stir up energies and interact with spirits.

The tour ventures through some of the oldest and most haunted streets of Los Angeles, where residual ghost impressions are felt, poltergeists heard, and after death after consciousnesses are witnessed.

Using our ghost hunting tools, this tour attempts to contact spirits and invite apparitions.

We’ve had guests report strange sensations (dizziness, feeling pinched, tapped or grabbed), hear shrill sounds and voices, see apparitions, and document unexplainable images in photographs from the tour.

  • Are there bathrooms? Nope, please do this before the tour.
  • Can we drink? This ain’t New Orleans! We will remove guests who are noticeably drunk and disruptive.
  • Is this the best ghost tour ever? Probably.
