My husband and I really enjoyed the tour. Scott didn't just show us the sites, he explained each site, the event and history of it. He has a great sense of humor and personallity for this job. He truely made this a memorable outting for us. His driving around the city made me feel comfortable, he is a very good driver in traffic. I hope to go on more of his tours soon. Thanks

More than just dearly departed...

We found the brochure at the Kodak theatre, and then booked in for the next day. The tour was great! Scott, the driver extraordinaire, had an amazing wealth of information in his head. The tour was not just about the dark side of Hollywood, we also saw where some stars live, and other points of interest. I would have to say the Dearly Departed tour was a good value for the money, and thanks for having extremely clean windows in the van, as I got some great pics too!

The dearly departed tour was very entertaining. We all enjoyed the ride around hollywood and loved seeing all the historical memories and some recent events. Our group felt it was worth every penny. We liked it so much that we will be going on another tour soon. (The Helter Skelter tour)... I rate this tour Highly recommended!!!

I was so happy with everything... we were running late and I called - the tour guide waited for us and let me grab some water before we left. I went to work and told everyone about it and totally reccommended it! Ive lived locally all of my life and never got the view of hollywood like that! I really hope that there are more tours like that in the works! thanks again

Awesome TIme!

This tour exceeded our expectations by being so much more than just a tour of "haunted" sites. We got to see stars' homes, crime scenes, and obscure things, like the bushes Ms. Lohan ran into on one of her drunken excursions. Scott was an awesome tour guide and is a true fountain of knowledge. We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone. Keep up the good work.

Dearly Departed and More

My husband, my 14 year old daughter and I went on the Dearly Departed Tour and all of us enjoyed it. The name suggests the subject of most of the tour but along with the names and places of many tragic events, participants also see other interesting places and learn many interesting things about the area that the tour encompasses. The guide is very approachable and friendly and really seems to love what he does.

death becomes them

My mother (71) and I attended this tour for a second time, although we enjoyed it thoroughly, we were slightly disappointed that it lacked the humor and campiness of original tour we took in the early 90s. The tour is fascinating and the tour guide, Scott is an endless wealth of knowledge...Scott really knows how to keep his passengers engrossed.

Great way to explore Los Angeles!

This is a must for anyone with friends visiting Los Angeles. You can show them all the fun sites without having to drive them around yourself. Scott is awesome as a tour guide. He really knows his stuff. The three hours will just FLY BY! Loved it!
