Brian, the tour guide, not only pointed out the "death places," but he has a thorough knowledge of the area, so he pointed out many other areas of interest. We got even more than what we expected. It was very reasonably priced and the 2 1/2 hours went very fast.

This tour was amazing! So informational, extremely interesting and so much fun! Our tour guide, Scott, was funny and provided us with all the information we needed and wanted to know. You can tell he is so passionate about it, and the guests definitely feed off of his energy. I was very pleased with the amount of places that we looked out and loved the combination of music, video, and talking that was incorporated. I would definitely recommend this tour to my friends and I can't wait to go on another Dearly Departed tour!!!!

This was a very interesting tour. Some history I didn't know about the crimes was learned and some of the history about the crimes supports some of my views on the crime. I wouldn't call it fun as such but had a great time! Great tour guide. Thanks Scott

Brian was our guide...what a character. He has so much Hollywood trivia in his head, it is hard to get it all in . Great energy, interesting stories, loved it! My sister and I brought our adult kids (18 and 23)....we all had a great time. Bus is comfy, great big picture windows....highly recommend..even for us locals acting like tourists for the day. Dinner after the tour at Pink Taco, which is on the same street as the tour office. Go early to check in...they have lots of Hollywood memorabilia to explore before the tour.

My mother bought us tickets for my birthday, we had a great time. Brian was funny and very informative. We both enjoyed the tour greatly and I will be going back for the other tours Dearly Departed offers.

This was the best tours yet! (way better than TMZ). We did this as a team building work activity and we all loved it. Brian (our guide) showed us not just the ...bad and the ugly, but the good too! He is super knowledgeable about the area and very personable. This tour did not focus on the morbid, it emphasize the history of the area and memorialized those who have passed. It also set straight many of those urban legends about how and where people actually died. Can't wait to take my visiting guest on this tour! Thanks for a great afternoon!!!

I live in the area and took a friend on the sight-seeing trip. I learned so much about my neighborhood that I didn't know. Our guide and driver, Brian, was knowledgeable and funny. It was a hoot!

My teen-age daughter (very involved with music) LOVED the tour. My teen-age son (interested in gore to the extent we abide that sort of thing) really liked a few moments. He's a teen-age boy, and this tour was booked primarily to address my daughter's interests (we did a separate "race" tour for which my son flipped "Fantastic Race"). Scott was responsive to questions and tailored the experience to our group - he offers an amazing base of knowledge, maintains professionalism while avoiding stuffy-ness, and is as dynamic and engaging a tour leader as I've ever seen.

For a morbid subject, Dearly Departed definitely knows how to make for an interesting tour. With a mix of audio and soundtracks played at the opportune moments, a very knowledgeable guide and great storyteller, the tour was informative, interesting, and fascinating at the same time. As far as LA/Hollywood tours go, I'd definitely recommend!

I've been meaning to try this tour for awhile and I'm sure glad I finally went this past Sunday. Alison Arngrim is the most sweet, hilarious, smart, and generous tour guide! If you're a fan of Little House on the Prairie you will LOVE hanging with Alison for an afternoon hearing the greatest stories about the cast of the show and the years making it. She is open to any questions about the show or her life and career, you'll get a picture taken with her under the Hollywood sign, and you will be able to choose an 8x10 to have autographed after the tour as well. She even baked pumpkin muffins for all of us on the tour! I had a blast and it's made me even more a fan of hers. Thank you, Alison-- you're the best! Mark

Amazing tour for locals

Having been born and raised in Los Angeles, I've never taken, nor considered taking a tour. I've been a fan of for years and am SO HAPPY I took this tour! Hollywood is much more seedy than it appears and its so engaging to hear it and see it with guidance from such knowledgeable staff. Highly recommended for the L.A. history novice, or the history buff looking to test their knowledge.

The wife wanted to go on the tour for her birthday. Learned a lot about LA's underbelly and they even pointed out a few living celebrity homes. Good stuff.
