We heard about this review through Mark and Brian on the radio, and knew we had to check it out. Scott was the nicest man, and he accommodated the tour to what ever we were interested in. he was so knowledgeable about the area and answered most of our questions before they were even asked! I cant wait to try all of his tours!

I've done this tour twice and I highly recommend it. This time I took a friend from London to show him an overview of Hollywood/West side and show him some good movie spots. He had a great time! The tour guide is very personable and has great stories to tell. The conversation throughout the tour is great and there is not a single slow moment in the 3 hours.

Great Tour

The tour was very comprehensive as we traveled through Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and surrounding cities. We were able to see many homes of famous personalities such as Lucille Ball, Frank Sinatra, Melanie Griffith and so many others. We visited many infamous sites as well like the Labianca home made infamous by Charles Manson, and the Black Dahlia murder told in gruesome detail. What was special about this tour was the very knowledgeable guide. It seemed as though he knew something special about every street we passed. My husband enjoyed the tour and recommend it to all, those looking for the glamorous side of tinsel town as well as the dark.

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.
