BEYOND FABULOUS!

I am a Los Angeles local & I needed something to do with an out of town guest. The Dearly Departed Tour certainly filled the bill on all levels. I was totally entertained the entire time. Our tour guide was wonderful & was full of all kind of interesting stories & facts. The tour was fun from the time of checking in at the office - make sure you tour the "museum" there until the very end. I would highly recommend it to all!

My husband and I enjoyed our tour, and especially our tour guide Brian. He was very animated and knowledgeable. I especially appreciate that extra stop you made. Thanks again, Brian! Would definitely recommend this tour!!!!

Just a little about myself before I go into the review....I took this tour on 7/31/13. I am 31, from NY and was out in LA with four other friends my age also from NY. We all enjoyed the tour immensely! Brian, our driver and tour guide, was outstanding! His wealth of knowledge about the subject matters covered on the tour were outstanding and impressive. His stories and great sense of humor made the tour even more enjoyable. The "tragic" side of LA was covered in-depth and I saw/heard just about everything I wanted to. I had high expectations for this tour based on reviews I've read, as well as frequenting Scott's Findadeath site before. My expectations were surpassed! I will recommend this tour to anyone who asks. Next time I am in LA, I will definetly look into taking one of the other tours offered by Dearly Departed. Scott and Brian, keep up the fine work!

unique look at local history

This tour is hard to book and is almost always sold out. I got fortunate and was able to get on board. The tour was fantastic and "Richard" the guide was very knowledgeable. I would recommend this tour to anyone who likes the seedy and sorid side of history. LA is filled with these tales of woe. It was a fun day and would do it again.

More fun than a date with Divine Brown!

Remember that name, it will be on your Dearly Departed Final Exam. I live in L.A. and had been wanting to take this tour forever. Not getting any younger, I thought I should do it before I join the Dearly Departed myself. Our tour guide was Brian, and it's downright scary how much he knows about Hollywood scandals, deaths and sleaze. But scary in a GOOD way! Also, free Tootsie Rolls! Enthusiastically recommended for everyone except the squeamish and small children...unless you parental units want to be explaining terms like "autoerotic asphyxiation" to Buddy and Sis.

Not Worth the Money
Sun, Sep 11, 11   1:00 PM mike87 Unspecified 20-29 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
I really don't recommend this in any way. 40$ is too, TOO much for a simple bus tour. And the fact that 10 minutes into it they are already advertising for other tours is offensive. The tour guide was very sweet, and I liked the pictures included in the tour's booklet, but as a whole I left feeling like a wasted my money and afternoon.

Informative / Interesting

It's not a morbid / death filled tour.It's mixed with alot celebrity info. and interesting stories.Even if you don't care about celebrities,you will enjoy seeing the homes in Beverly Hills,Bell Aire,Hollywood Etc..Scott your guide is very personable ,and has a good sense of humor.It's worth the money.All he needs to do to improve it is add one more pit stop.

Good tour guide, got more than our money's worth

Brian D is a good tour guide. Some of the info is mythical, which was definitely OK with us. Also, we felt like he gave us much more than we paid for, and broadened the scope of the tour, which we thoroughly enjoyed. His live of movies and music provided us with a wonderful afternoon.

BEST WAY TO SEE LA!!!

I really enjoyed my tour with Brian, this was the best tour I have ever been on! I am a massive crime buff, so i managed to get my fix of true crime, history and even some fun facts/trivia! Be sure to go on this tour! I "dragged" my two sceptical friends with me on the tour and by the end they were ravving about how much they loved it!!!

Fantastic Alternative to usual LA tours
Fri, Oct 2, 09   1:00 PM michelleayer Female 30-39 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
WHat a fantastic time we had on this tour. Scott not only knows the ins and outs of what are considered some of the most tragic events in LA, he is also an avid film buff adding an authenticity and personal aspect to the tour. IT out does any of the other tours we went on. Thanks Scott! I Highly recommend this to anyone who wants more than the usual movies stars homes tour...
