Dedicated to “saving lives, creating jobs, rebuilding communities,” LA Gang Tours provides a first-hand encounter of the history of high-profile gang areas and the top crime-scene locations in Los Angeles’s South Central area.

Each bus tour features a guide, from South Central, who has hands-on knowledge and experience of the inner-city lifestyle. Tour stops include the birthplace of the Black Panther Party and Crips Gang; the Los Angeles River Bed; Firestone Sheriff Station and Metropolitan Detention Center.

Thanks to gunfire-free safety zones established by participating gangs, allowing the tour company to operate in their areas, incentive travel groups are guaranteed safe passage.

To that end, LA Gang Tours have predetermined routes and times that are honoured by the participating gangs.

Additionally, the tour company gives profits back to these areas, to foster economic development.
