The best tour of our trip!

Everyone in our family (ages 78 to 13) loved, loved this tour. This is the must tour while in Hollywood. Professional, fascinating and so much better than any other activity we did there - and we did a lot. Richard was a great guide = funny, entertaining and just down right wonderful. Seemed like individual, personalized service. If you don't do anything else, do this tour.

The Tour was comprehensive, interesting and fun. The car was air conditioned and very comfortable -- a real treat on a hot summer day. We all recommend the tour highly.

Great fun! Wish more focus on 70s to present..

A lot of fun!! Great guide. I wish the material focused more on the more recent celebrities (e.g., River Phoenix, John Belushi) instead of early 1900s actresses. Stories like the Black Dahlia which are very famous are good too.

We fully enjoyed the tour. Our tour guide Richard was very knowledgeable and also quite entertaining. Had a friend with us who is an LA resident and he learned some new and interesting facts that he had never known. Would recommend this tour and we intend to take the other tours that Dearly Departed offers over the next few months!

I took my Grandparents on this Tour and they LOVED it!! Past and present history was presented, our Tour Guide (Brian) was totally cool and he had an awesome sense of humor..he knew how to get everyone to interact with him and not be shy. There is so much history in Hollywood I HIGHLY recommend this Tour! Also it is in a van with AC so fotunately my grandparents did not have to deal with the Summer heat and sun.

Most entertaining tour taken!

Our guide, Brian, was so passionate about the tour and his job and this is what made the tour so enjoyable. It was obvious that he was not just repeating a script that he had been given. I can highly reccomend this tour, you see Hollywood while learning about its history and we had the personal, local touch of Brian. 5 stars!

Fascinating tour!

I really enjoyed this tour! I went alone because my companion wasn't free midday. I was hesitant about going alone, but decided to go anyway. I'm glad I did. It was fascinating! If you are thinking of going on this tour, do it! You won't be disappointed. I went on three different Hollywood tours while I was there. This one was the best!

Brian Donnelly rocked!

We had such a great time! Could have stayed on the tour all day - and I bet Brian could have kept giving us interesting new info/facts all day! We had a 9 year old with us who had a fantastic time - the tour is interesting but some subject matter might not be suited for other 9 year olds. Brian did a fantastic job making sure she was okay. I can wait to check out the other tours offered (Helter Skelter and DD2). If you do one tour - this is the one and Brian is your guy!
