Arrived at the pick up point which is the shop and that by itself was fantastic lot's of things to see and the lady there [sorry can't remember name] had loads of information she was great .Our tour guide on the bus [sorry can't remember he's name not good with names] was one of the best tour guides we have had he really love's his job and you can tell he really enjoys telling everyone everything he no's. I have already been telling everyone I no they need to go on this tour and if you go to hollywood and don't do it you are really missing out

Absolutely loved this tour!

I cannot recommend this tour highly enough, it was just that good! We had the most amazing, friendly, funny tour guide, Brian, who knew everything there is to know about Hollywood's dearly departed and this made for a great couple of hours. We saw where Janis Joplin, James Belushi, Michael Jackson and River Phoenix (just to name a few) died and had a bit of a celebrity homes tour also as we went through Hollywood and Beverly Hills. During the tour you are played audio and read through a folder provided, giving details about each crime etc that occurred in the location you are looking at. We had such a great time on this tour that if I am ever in Hollywood again, I will be doing this tour again! If you are thinking about it - stop! Just book it - you won't be disappointed! A great, great tour and if Brian is your guide, you are in for a funny, funny couple of hours! Just loved it!

Both the owner and our tour guide were super friendly and knowledgeable. There's a cool display of memorabilia in the office to peruse while waiting for the tour to start. Our tour guide has been giving and training tours for many years, so is very entertaining, knowledgeable and the entire experience was a lot of fun. I was very glad I went and would recommend this tour to all.

Very atmospheric and well informed. The Guide (Scott) knew his stuff, and the sixties music added authenticity. A truly memorable experience that I would highly recommend.

Lots of extra content, a very well rounded tour.
Mon, Mar 31  1:00 PM buntingdog Female 30-39 International Tourist(s) Other
We were given so much more information than we ever expected on this tour! At every twist and turn we were told about the history of Hollywood, famous filming locations, and shown celebrity houses. We had expected this tour to be strictly about local deaths, but it was so much more. At first our tour guide was a little speedy on the delivery, but he quickly got into a pace that everyone was able to follow. The books they provide you with for extra information and the audio content really helps bring the stories to life, so to speak. I would definitely recommend this tour to other people.

The Helter Skelter Tragical tour despite the dark history of the subject is an interesting and highly entertaining tour, the multimedia presentation interlaced with Scott's amazing knowledge of the case and hollywood history in general, you even see all the subcultures of LA whilst on it. Willy Wonka in his purple Willy Wonka car, tranny prostitute and a guy walking the streets with a matic (trench Digging tool). Looking forward to going on his other tours on my next trip to LA

Excellent Entertainment - This is a "must do" !!
Wed, Mar 26  1:00 PM ALUNGRIFFITH Male 40-49 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Thoroughly enjoyed this tour - we started off the tour in the Dearly Departed offices, where we greeted by the owner and immediately felt this was going to a more personalized tour than the normal LA "Home of the Stars" type tour !! Our tour guide Brian was really good - very knowledgable, interacted well with his tour party, indeed the whole tour was thought provoking as well as entertaining !! This tour was the highlight of our stay in LA, indeed when we return to LA we will certainly be checking out some of the other tours that Dearly Departed run ...

In a word, awesome!

I absolutely loved this tour. It's a great alternative to doing a regular star tour, and you get to see a lot of the Hollywood/Beverly Hills area as well as hearing some realy interesting things about crimes and deaths. I would 100% recommend this tour. Probably not suitable for children though.

This tour is fantastic.

The tour was well researched and organised. Our guide Brian kept it fun and fascinating considering the subject matter. Brian also took the time to show us more than death scenes and death houses even though that's why we went. The tour is not morbid or depressing, just incredibly interesting like any tour with a history angle for history buffs. Thanks Scott and Brian. Good job.

Very enjoyable and fact-filled, Scott is an excellent tour guide and kept us informed and interested at all times, no mean feat for a tour that needs over 3 hours to do the subject justice. Pitched at the right level for Manson experts as well as those less familar with the story.Highly recommended, and we hope to be back!

We had a great tour with Bryan - he was super enthusiastic and gave us tons of information about not only dead celebrities but architecture, history and even toured us around some celebrity homes. Great tour overall and highly recommended!

So much happening in LA
Wed, Dec 4, 13   1:00 PM lou_brad Female 50-59 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
I totally enjoyed the tour with Brian as our tour lead. Brian's Knowledge of the Hollywood 'underbelly' is fantastic, and really enjoyed his 'opinions'. There has been so much happening in Hollywood and Beverly Hills with the movie stars and other characters that the tour was jam-packed with such interesting tales.
