We had a very good time and was very intrigued by the amount of information that the guide had to deliver. You will not be disappointed if you choose this tour. I highly recommend this to everyone...

Good tour

I enjoyed the knowledge my tour guide Brian provided. Had hoped for a few other sites on the tour that we didn't get to see. Would have enjoyed leaving the area a bit and heading out to a few of the other communities.

My son planned this for a mothers day celebration.
Sun, May 12, 13   1:00 PM rebelyell Female 60-69 Local Family With Children
It was one of the best and out of the norm Mothers Day I have had in 30 years. I would highly recommend this day of adventure for all. My son planned the entire outing and I could not think of any other way I would have rather spent it. I was raised in San Marino and never took the "Hollywood Tours"....what I missed in all these years. Richard and Jane were the best hosts....definately a must to come back. I have taught Jazzercise (yes it is still around) for 38 years and I announced to my class of 50 plus the fabulous time we had. There was so much information packed into the 3 hours I could not remember half of what we experienced. I just know and will always remember what an experience we had. Thank you.... still talking about it. Karen and her son Cristian. San Juan Capistrano, CA home of the Swallows.( the birds of love)

Awesome tour with exceptional hosts

The tour was great and our host Richard had exceptional knowledge of Hollywood and its history. Our son loves the Doors and not only did Scott speak with our son about how cool he thought this was, Richard detoured of the tour to show us some sights of the Doors. This was the third time my wife had taken the tour and the second time I had and it was absolutely fantastic. Our kids loved this and we would absolutely recommend anyone who goes to LA not miss this tour. Thanks for an awesome time

Highly Recommended!--Hollywood Movie Tours

Highlight of our trip to LA. Equally enjoyed by 53 year old me and my 17 year old son. Good mix of relatively recent (last couple of decades) and classic (50's-60's) movie selections. Seeing the actual clips of the movie scenes as you stop--the van actually stops (although you don't get out) at the locations and doesn't just drive by--at each location adds immensely to the experience. You also see a few stars' homes in addition. A fringe benefit of taking the tour is seeing beautiful LA residential neighborhoods--e.g., Hancock Park, Los Feliz--that you might otherwise miss, where the houses aren't behind hedges or gates. A bathroom break is provided mid-way through the trip, but that is actually the only negative thing I have to say about the tour. The break is at a McDonald's whose restroom facilities are poorly maintained and apparently frequented by street people. Suggestion to tour operator: please find another place for the bathroom break.

Brian our tour guide is amazing !!!! He made it so special. Parking is easy, which alone is great in LA. The tour itself is so much fun. I've lived in LA a long time and found out things I never knew. We recomend it !!!

Dearly Departed is not all inclusive on this tour!
Wed, Mar 6, 13   1:00 PM cciminelli Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
After the tour, I told the guide that they should change their name as the tour includes so much more about Californnia history than just a tour of events about dead people. You will also see some historic landmarks and many little known trivia facts about the area. Most of the tour encompases the Beverly Hills area, which is mostly hidden from anyone viewing the area. Everybody wants to see Rodeo Drive and such, but there is so much more to see in tthe background. I am a trivia buff and a movie buff, and I still learned more than I knew on this tour and that was important to me!

Cool Tour for a former Los Angelino
Sun, Feb 17, 13   1:00 PM DGonz69 Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
Growing up in LA you assume you've been there done that. Currently living in Temecula, on a whim my wife and I (along with our 16 yr old son) took the Tragical History Tour. Not only was it entertaining, it was actually very informative about the history of the area. A city like Hollywood has no shortage of dark, tragic, and sometimes funny stories... this tour will definitely entertain and enlighten you, and I highly recommend it!

Just do it.

Make sure you leave yourself enough time to view the artifacts in their shop either before or after the tour. The tour is informative, sad, shocking and funny. It's amazing the history of Hollywood and Beverly Hills with so much history in such a small area. Take your camera. Full marks to the driver and tour guide. I believe his name was Richard. Highly recommended.

Fun for those over 50

My spouse and I had a great time on the tour, but our teen and young adult children didn't know many of the people who the tour guides were talking about. It would have been more enjoyable for them to learn more about contemporary pop culture figures and the places of their scandals in addition to the other locales and people.

The highlight of my holiday no question.very Comfortable transportation.scott michaels is a fasinating chap and also a most entertaining tour guide,our party age range was 14 to 45 and this tour was equally enjoyed by us all.The only thing I can think of that could make this tour better would be moving hollywood nearer to my hometown in the uk then i could do this tour again and again and again........................................
