Frequently Asked Questions

We regularly stir up energies and interact with spirits.

The tour ventures through some of the oldest and most haunted streets of Chinatown, 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.

  • Generally no — our tours are led even in rain, unless it is unsafe to do so.

    We will cancel if the air is unhealthy according to the air quality index, due to California wildfire smoke.

Meet us in the heart of Chinatown, a gorgeous neighborhood teeming with stunning architecture and old Hollywood secrets.

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.
