A great tour

We really enjoyed the enthusiasm and commentary of our tour guide. He also went off track at the request of a customer which led us to a whole other dimension of the tour. Nothing seemed too much trouble Thankyou dearly departed tours

A definite "to do" in the Hollywood area

We had so much fun doing this tour. Richard, our guide, was so enthusiastic and full of fun facts. We arrived early and the girl that greeted us in the museum (can't remember her name, Laura?) was so much fun to talk to. The museum was interesting too. If you possess fascination in the general history of Hollywood along with a touch of morbid curiosity then you won't be disappointed. I wish we could have met Scott Michaels. This tour pairs so perfectly with his website. A+++++

Best Day Ever

This was the best day on the planet. From Joni Mitchell's paved paradise to the cursed bungalows, you wouldn't believe me if I told you how great this tour is!

Best Hollywood Tour!

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!

Most Entertaining & Informative....

This is the most Entertaining & Informative tour around. They truly are passionate about their subject matter. And, they genuinely love entertaining the group while maintaining integrity of the facts. Well done! I would do it again and recommend it to others.

Worth every penny!

Even if you never watched an episode of Little House in your life, quite frankly Richard & Alison are just awesome tour guides! The fact that you're hanging out with "Nellie Oleson" is merely an added (and awesome) bonus.

It's Great

My college aged daughter and I took this tour and had the best time ever.. Richard is awesome. He has so much knowledge and information on the history of Hollywood .. He was funny and entertaining .. Never a dull moment .. This tour was so fun .. Very much worth the price .. We were running late because of the traffic and we called and they waited for us .. Who does that ? Richard does! He's great ! The tours great ! We're planning on going to the Helter Skelter tour next .. Can't wait !!

Very informative

I was familiar with the Manson murders, but I realized after this tour that I really didn't know much. Scott (our tour guide) really was so informative and I liked his sense of humor. Plus, we saw a lot of Los Angeles that I had never seen before....and I'm a local. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Must not miss this tour

Scott was well informed on the events that took place during the Mason Family murders. I learned new facts with regards to the murders and never realized how close I live to them. My 13 year old nephew was completely blown away and bought himself a copy of Helter Skelter.

Interesting Tour

This tour was an interesting combination of Hollywood tragedies and L.A. history. It was very informative, and it was cool to see the actual locations where various celebrities have died. Brian Donnelly, our guide, was entertaining, and you could tell he loved to give this tour. He had quite a wealth of knowledge and trivia about L.A. The only complaints I have were that I didn't know a lot of the people he was talking about and you only get off the bus once for a restroom break. The tour would certainly be improved if there were other stops along the way. Overall, it was a fun tour and a good value. On an eery side note, while we were on the tour we learned that Ray Manzarek from The Doors had died which was apropos for the occasion of this tour.

Alison has great stories
Sat, Apr 27, 13   4:30 PM danayoung35 Female 60-69 Local Other
Alison Arngrim has great stories of growing up in Hollywood, although many of them are also in her book. She is very personable and accessible, with a terrific sense of humor. Since you basically just drive around (except for the stop for photos near the Hollywood sign) listening to her talk, it seems a little pricey. Since I'm local, perhaps I didn't appreciate seeing the "sights" as much as someone from out of town would.

good for a view of the LA that is not so apparent

I had lived in Southern Calif for a while during college, but did not have time for touring. I now go back frequently with exchange students and this tour was good to give added dimension to the more obvious glitz. The younger kids don't recognize many of the names but still enjoyed the tour, but for the older bunch brought back memories
