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.

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

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...

FANTASTIC

Went on this tour again, because my husband heard me talk about how much I liked it when I had been on it. Brian was great (as one suspects he always is) and made the tour interesting for those of us who had seen it before and for those who had never been on it. Highly recommend for anyone interested in LA history and lore. Brian knows where all the dead bodies are as well as fascinating tidbits about famous people you've seen on tv and movies.

Loved seeing all of the locations where movies were shot, loved the background and history as well. Brian was a great tour guide, he really knows his stuff! Super-duper comfortable, A/C vehicle. Very much recommend!

Why should tourists have all the fun? I had heard about this tour and was interested to find out more about local history. Our guide Brian, was wildly funny and imparted information in a fun and interactive manner. This is obviously someone who loves his job. The van was very comfortable in terms of seating and cooling (it was a hot day out). Can't say enough about how much fun this was. Highly recommend!

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!!

Good but needs more sights
Sat, Nov 14, 09   1:30 PM MHGitlin Female 40-49 Local Couple on a Date
Our tour guide was Richard Sebastian. He was great. Not easy to keep people entertained for 3+ hrs but he did! I took the tour when it was graveline tours. I thought my boyfriend would enjoy it too which he did. However, I was disappointed we did not see more tragic death locations like where George Reeves died, where Nicole Simpson died or the Tate murders. I am sure that is because of the Helter Skelter Tour but it was disappointing. Or where Sal Mineo died?! I do think the tour needs more murder sites, and maybe less home locations of dead actors. I also think it was slightly too long. Maybe a half hour less. However the price was right. A lot of tour for the price for sure. Thanks!

A Must Do while visiting LA

just an unreal tour. I read previous reviews before signing up and thought this could not be as good as the reviews I was reading. Get to visit things revolving around movie locations, celebrity homes, murder scenes and plenty more. Such a great intimate setting within the tour bus with easy access to ask questions and create dialogue about different events, etc.... Scott was our tour guide and he is just a great guy. very considerate, polite, and very easy to talk to and on top of that...HE KNOWS HIS STUFF about a wide range of topics. I could go on and on..sorry...please do this tour..you will not be disappointed. It is Mature in nature so keep that in mind. DO IT!!! Thank you again Scott. Your hospitality and knowledge are second to none! Mike and Sally San Jose, CA

We've been wanting to take this tour for sometime and we finally did it. Brian was our tour guide and he gives the tour with so much vigor and gusto. He also provided little known tidbits of tinseltown. The tour was approximatley 2.5 hours, when it was over, we wanted more! Kudos to Scott and Brian!

the enclosed coach limited view of many of the sites - would have enjoyed it more with an open air van, or at least one with higher windows

Scott's a great guide!

Absurdly fun, filled with morbid trivia, ghoulish gossip and great company. If you love the dark side and fascinating facts about celebrity murders, Scott's your man. Look up the alley where Sal Mineo's murder took place; see graphic photos of the Black Dahlia's corpse; rubberneck up Madonna's driveway. Two and a half hours of sightseeing fun!
