Loved the tour guide; didn't love the van

Loved our tour guide. My only negative is with the van. It was hard to see things on the opposite side of the van. I would prefer an open top van.

Brian was funny and really informative. We had a blast. Much more interesting than those "homes of the stars tours." Although our knowledgeable tour guide gave us that information too!

Good tour for a different flair of LA

I am local but brought family on this tour. I have been on several other Hollywood tours and this was one of the best. Not only did the tour driver point out some interesting places where tragic things took place, but he also pointed out many other interesting places and facts along the way. The tour driver, Brian, was very informative and interesting with a good dose of humor.

Murder and scandal have never been so much fun

The tour was funny, smart, interesting and absolutely fascinating. While the spots were great, and the original tour full of great tidbits, our tour guide had so much knowledge on every Hollywood subject that I could have listened for hours more. Well worth the money, and something I will recommend to locals and tourists alike.

The tour was great - not only did we get to see where many famous people had died, but we also got so much information about the history of Hollywood from our tour guide, Brian. He knew so much about Hollywood, the stars, and the history that he was able to roll with the questions and interests of our group. While he was at times scattered in his delivery, the tour was overall an awesome way to see LA without having to drive, a funny and irreverent look at the ridiculousness that is Hollywood and its characters, and, not to overthink it, but also provided an opportunity to reflect on our society's obsession with fame, death, and the place where they intersect. Certainly worth the $40!

We had the best time on this tour. Brian is a wealth of knowledge and made the whole experience so much fun. I've already referred the tour to other people and want to go again. Even after living in LA for 30+ years, there were so many new things I learned.

If you like the history of Hollywood and all of its lurid details, this is for you! With great enthusiasm and knowledge, the Dearly Departed tour gives you fascinating details of past and present celebs, not only where they might've passed away but where they lived, along with some famous movie sites and trivia. This tour is for the young and old and should not be missed!
