Great Hollywood History!

I had been waiting to hop on one of these tours for years. I was disappointed I missed the Helter Skelter tour but thoroughly pleased with the history and fun of the dearly departed tour. I felt I got excellent value for money as the tour was lengthy and I was given a complimentary beverage at the start of the tour. I enjoyed chatting with the staff in the shop and viewing all the cool souvenirs and collectibles before and after the tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgable, enthusiastic and entertaining. Highly recommend and I'd love to do it again!

Can't say enough good things about this tour! Brian (tour guide) was funny, friendly, highly entertaining and a font of knowledge. Scott was also friendly, informative and has some great stuff on display in the shop. I would definitely recommend this, especially if you are looking for something a little bit different!

Fun with Alison

It's always a lot of fun meeting Alison "Nasty Nellie from Little House" Arngrim. She is a very funny and humorous person and growing up in Hollywood she can tell a lot of interesting stories and show a lot of interesting places.

Great tour led by interesting and informative star

Fantastic tour presented by someone who grew up in Hollywood in its heyday. Alison was so much fun and had so much to share. It was funny, informative and highly entertaining from start to finish. Helps if you are a fan of LHOP but there was so much more to this tour than just that.

No refund option.

Myself and my wife booked a movie tour but due to something that came up, we knew two days in advance that we could not participate. Unfortunately the tour company does not issue refunds so we were basically out $90+. I'm not overly bothered about it because what happened was unavoidable, but maybe having some sort of advance refund option might be something to consider.

Better and cheaper than the TMZ tour

Saw a lot of the same sights that the TMZ tour takes you on, and a lot that it doesn't. Provides a very intimate look into the Hollywood area.

A bit of everything

It was a tour devoted to visiting sites where people had died but it also was good for where people lived and other places of interest in LA great guide would recommend.

Salacious & bloody gossip driven around in a comfortable bus. Be warned pit stop is no longer George michaels loo but all in all two thumbs up.

Loved it!
Tue, Aug 6, 13   1:00 PM HelenW17 Female 40-49 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
If you are into the macabre, this is absolutely the tour for you! We thoroughly enjoyed it and it was excellent value for money. The tour lasted over two and a half hours and we saw sites related to the black dahlia murders, the house where the Menendez brothers killed their parents, the house where Michael Jackson died, the Viper Room etc etc. As well as the seeing the sites related to the tour, it was a great way to see the sights of San Francisco. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and there was a great little 'black' museum for us to look around before the tour started. During the tour there were some great little sound bites played; the one with Judy Garland talking about Marlene Dietrich had us howling with laughter. Great fun but I wouldn't recommend taking young children as there are some gruesome details related!

Do not know what to write !!!!!

Ok am going to send my review about DD Tours. I booked 2 The Tragical Hollywood and Helter Skelter. Enjoyed both of them. Could it be possible to include the location where the body of Elizabeth Short was found, it would be a feather in your cap.By the way if interested, on internet it is possible to download the autopsy photos of her body and other police info.. I love true crime and these 2 tours a good. The documents seen on the H.S. is very interesting. Love seeing the home where the Manson kids washed themselves after the murder. Hope the hose is still the sameone.

Better than standard tour
Sat, Jul 27, 13   1:15 PM Slystone Female 50-59 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We were not interested in taking the Hollywood "stars live Here" tour, so we decided to take this one instead. It was interesting and our guide was very knowledgeable. Be prepared for only one bathroom stop and bring water (available at their office) as it gets warm in the van, even with the air conditioning on. People in the back row of the van complained non-stop about being too hot.

Great Tour with knowledgable tour guide

This was such a great tour and learnt so much about LA that i would not have by looking around on my own, even things not relating to the tour itself just general information. Brian was such a great tour guide and even helped us Aussies better understand some things that we may not be aware of as we are not from the US.

Fantastic tour and knowledgable guide!
Mon, Jul 8, 13   1:00 PM raewilson Female 20-29 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
I wanted to do a celebrity tour while in Hollywood and my husband made a booking with Dearly Departed - not really what I was expecting. Our driver talked non-stop during the entire tour, talking us through celebrity mishaps, murders and mysteries. I was intrigued! I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone wanting to do something a little different.
