Awesome Tour!!!

Our tour guide was Brian Donnelly and you can tell how much he loves his job. He was full of detail about all of the many places we visited and you could tell he enjoyed it as much as the first time vistors! We saw countless homes where new and old movies were filmed. I would highly recommend taking this tour. You get to see much of the city and it will be hard to find a tour guide that is enjoyable as Brian.

Fantastic Tour

I have been on a couple of Dearly Departed tours with Brian Donnelly and he has always done a fantastic job so while in town with the family thought we would try the movie tours. We were certainly not disappointed as we went to many sites where clips of movies some famous and some not so famous were filmed. I can't imagine anyone putting more effort into his touring work than Brian does with his knowledge of the subjects being covered. I would like to see a "Dearly Departed 2 tour" sometime in the future with new topics and sites.

Scott was the best! This was a great tour that was done with respect shown to the victims and their families. Scott was very informative and a great guide. He was open to all questions and comments. Highly Recommended!!!

I dragged half my family with me to take this tour because I had heard about it on tv. Not only did I love it but my whole group had an amazing time. Our tour guide Brian was enthusiatic and fun and really knows his stuff. Best tour we went on while we were visiting Hollywood and would have taken it ten more times if we had stayed longer. My family and myself are now telling everyone that the Dearly Departed tour is the tour to take it!! DO IT!!!

We had a fantastic time on the DD tour and would readily recommend it to others. Scott and Brian are both extremely knowledgeable about the subject matter, and clearly love their jobs. The tour was worth every penny, and I will go again when I return to LA!

I thought the tour was very good. It was very informative, although I wish it would have included some other famous death spots (such as Marilyn Monroe house, or Tate-LaBianca houses) although I understand there is a time limit on the tour, Marilyn Monroe should be one of the top ones I would think. The only complaint I had is that on Dearly Departed Facebook Page I was told that I could use a code to get $5 off and if I called instead of booked online I would get an additional $8 off. That did not happen. When I called to make the reservation, I was told that they cannot take off an additional $8. Overall the tour was good, I would recommend it to others.

If you a good Hollywood gore story then this is the tour for you. Give the celeb tours a go but I am sure you will prefer this, from George Michaels loogate to the black dahlia what more could you ask for in sunny LA. Next time we go to LA will for sure do the Charles Mason tour.

Dearly Departed

I highly recommend the Dearly Departed tour. The tour offers a most unique look at LA, while also showcasing the more usual sites and interests. The 2.5 hour tour actually lasted closer to 3 hours and the additional time was most appreciated. Founder Scott Michaels has compiled a detailed history into the underbelly of LA and our tour guide Brian Donnelly was most knowledgeable and highly entertaining adding his own rich and historic perspectives. The ordering process on Zerve was flawless.

This was a team building trip to L.A. for my staff; can't imagine a better time than this! The entire group had a great time, saw plenty of things they'd never seen in L.A., AND had an entertaining tour guide. This group is the best! My third tour with them...and there will be more!

Fun and quirky. Definitely more interesting than an average Hollywood tour. Lots of history. Brian was a terrific tour guide.
