Wow! There was SO much information given to us!

My friends and I were SO impressed with the Dearly Departed Tour which we (timely) took the day before Halloween 2011! There were SO many tidbits of fun-and some mysterious-facts! We saw dozens and dozens of homes and businesses which were famous... or infamous as it were. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour-all 2 1/2 hours of it!! We were even given a souvenir of "someone's" arrest report!! I'll leave some "mystery" to you readers as to whose arrest report it was! Thanks for a fabulous time and the wonderful memories!

Exciting and fun, but too much info for 2.5 hrs
Sun, Oct 30, 11   1:00 PM wayman Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
The tour was very interesting and exciting. We learned a lot of facts that we never knew before. The only problem with the tour is that there is just too much information crammed into too short of a period of time. It is rushed the whole tour and hard to keep up with at times. If they could add another half hour and slow down the pace of the information coming at you, it would make it a perfect and enjoyable experience. It left me wanting to learn more on the Black Dalhia as the story had to be split into two different parts and I could not retain the entire recounting. Looks like I will have to look it up on the internet or read the book. The tour guide was great and so knowledgable. He has a great sense of humor and made our day a very enjoyable experience. Please just add a little more time and the tour will be perfect.

I am a third generation Los Angeles resident and I absolutely love this tour! I have taken the Historical Tragedy Tour, The Manson Tour, and The Film Location Tour and have really enjoyed all of them. The knowledge and enthusiasm of the tour guides is the finishing touch on a great experience!

Informitive - Morbid - Interesting. Who does'nt like Tootsie Rolls? I thought we would see the lot where the Black Dahlia body was found.

Fabulous Fun!

Brian is a hoot!!! He knows so much about Hollywood. It's more than just where someone passed, he's also very knowledgeable about architecture. And it helps he knows celebrity houses (OK, that's for me). We had a great time listening to his stories. I would definitely recommend this to anyone thinking about going on a tour through Hollywood. I would even do it again! Amazing value for the price of the ticket!

Does exactly what it says on the tin - and more!

Highly recommended tour that lived up to expectations, and then some! Great 'Death Hag' tour guide, full of enthusiasm and passion. Loved hearing of the historical facts and various other interesting snippets of info about Hollywood. Loved the intimacy of the smaller group as opposed to larger bus tours. Bus was comfortable, air conditioned and the tour guide was kind enough to drop me off at the metro station as I was running late. Can't wait to visit Hollywood again so I can do the tour all over again!! :-)

Just came back from the Dearly Departed Tour hosted by Brian and it was the best time imaginable! The tour itself was fun, quirky, morbid and highly entertaining and it was made all the more wonderful by our guide Brian. He is knowledgeable, friendly, engaing and full of energy. He is a walking trivia guide! The tour bus was totally comfortable and we visited great sites! I can't wait to take this tour again and hope they create a DD2 tour! I recommend this tour to anyone who wants something just a bit out of the ordinary! Thanks Brian for making our day (and my birthday) so special!....Love from Pumpkin II

Awesome Tour!

I had such an amazing time on this tour! Between the video footage and hearing details of what took place while sitting right in front of the buildings they took place in I was "in the moment" and got chills! Scott does such a great job of organizing this and is very knowledgeable and is willing to answer any questions and makes it fun!! It was so much fun re-living these moments in time. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and I highly recommend this to anyone that is interested in going. You won't be disappointed!! I will definitely be going on another tour in the future. Thanks again, Scott for the tour! One of the best experiences of my life! : D T'Lesa Ann

My friend found this tour through a travel book and we read a few online reviews and decided to take the plunge. It was our one super touristy thing to do. We were not disappointed, it was worth every penny. Brian is such a wonderful guide, he is very funny and is full of so much information it's crazy. He is very personable and if you have something that you really want to learn more about he will make sure that you do. Of course it's a morbid subject but it is so interesting. Our tour was very thorough and full of facts, it was great! If you are looking for something unique this is totally worth the time and money!

This is the second tour we have taken with Dearly Departed Tours and this one was just as much fun as the first tour. Brian, the tour guide is very knowledgeable of Hollywood History. The bus is comfortable and I was thankful for the air conditioning.

Excellent way to see the city

We took the dearly departed tour on a beautiful California day. Our guide, Richard, was exceptionally knowledgeable about the area, pointing out all kinds of interesting facts along the way. He was very funny and patient as we asked a hundred questions!! We didn't want to take a tradiional stars homes tour, and thought this would a more fun way to see the city. We were correct, I would recommend this tour to anyone I knew who was visiting the area!!

Loved It!

Not a dull moment! Guide was enthusiastic and we caught his Hollywood fever! Around every corner we turned was a an enthralling bit of juicy Hollywood gossip. It felt like a quick 2 1/2 tour. I suppose all fun things pass too quickly! Talked about the tour with friends for days. A tip at the end of the tour is optional but it ought to be at least 25%!

Such a Great Time!

I lived in LA till I was 30, and just came back for a visit. I never took a sightseeing tour before, but I thought my friend would enjoy it. We both had a blast!

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.
