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.

This tour is so full of interesting information! Me and seven friends enjoyed every bit of it! Our tour guide not only told us facts about the dearly departed, but we learned many things about old Hollywood and saw so many sites, it was awesome! I highly recommend this tour. It's something different and very cool.

I admit that I am not someone who ever takes a tour, but this was the most entertaining 3 hours I've had in a long time. Brian is really hilarious and has a brain packed with more knowledge, history, and wacky morbid humor than anyone I've run across in LA.

Been looking forward to going on this tour. It was very informative and it was great to meet Scott. . If you are into the dark history of Hollywood, this is a tour you don't want to miss.

I'm a huge fan of the findadeath website and of course have seen the specials on E! and follow the facebook etc. so once we planned a trip to LA I knew we'd have to go on this tour. I just love stuff like this and my husband had fun too. I highly recommend this tour. I can't wait to go back to LA one day just to go on the other tours, especially hopefully the helter skelter one, someday.

Lots of extra content, a very well rounded tour.

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.

Amazing and Informational Tour
Sat, Mar 29  9:00 AM deedeeF Female 20-29 Domestic Tourist(s) Unspecified
This tour was a blast. It was extremely informational. My tour guide was the very same guy that made the movie/documentary "Six Degrees of Helter Skelter." He was awesome and kept the entire tour interesting, there was not one dull moment. He was very knowledgeable and backed up his facts. I am not a Manson follower but went on the tour because these murders were widely publicized tragic events and caught my attention. I received much more information about these tragic events from our tour guide that was not mentioned in the book "Helter Skelter," and it is a different experience to actually be at these very locations of where these murders occurred. I also like the fact that part of the ticket sales goes to a good cause which is explained on the website. I was glad I went on this tour.
