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!

The van is very comfortable and clean, the tour guide is the actually star of the document "6 degrees of helter skelter" and he is such a great host. There is so much history and strange irony that weI learned in this tour. We really liked that they play sound bites of the music of that era, and you get to see actually news footage as it really happened. There is so much to say about this very intriguing tour. Also you feel so welcomed when you enter their establishment. They really make you feel very appreciated as a guest in their house, so to speak. Thank you Dearly Departed Tours and all 4 of our group feel the same way. A++

Took the tour on Oct. 6th, and had a great time! Our guide was amazing, and the museum is very informative. I would definitely take the tour again, and I recommend it to anyone. I will be going back to the museum & check out the upstairs, seeing as I had a ghostly encounter.

New look at Los Angeles
Sat, Sep 28, 13   1:00 PM Rchanon Female 70+ Local Group of Friends
The tour was very comprehensive. It not only covered some of the grisly events that took place here involving celebrities, but also provided interesting facts about Los Angeles and its neighboring cities of Beverly Hills and West Hollywood. The guide was very knowledgeable with a great sense of humor. He obviously did an enormous amount of research. The only down side was not being in an air conditioned van.

I've taken this tour twice. Both times with guests from out of town. I loved it just as much the second time. Brian is really great at his job and just at being a nice person. We'll be back next time we have out-of-towners. Love these guys. :)

At first I wasn't sure if I was going to like the Helter Skelter tour, as I was going for a friend's bachelorette party and knew very little about the La Bianca/Sharon Tate/etc... murders. I can't even begin to tell you how informative and FUN this tour was! Our tour guide was Scott who was not only highly educated on the subject but made the tour more than just visiting the places where the murders took place and the paths the manson family took to get to them. I can't wait to come back and take this tour again with my mom. Highly, highly recommended! I couldn't stop talking about the tour (and still can't!).

The Dearly Departed Tour people were so friendly and kind, they greeted us right when we came through the door. I felt so welcomed. The museum in the little building was very interesting. The van was very comfortable and the temperature was perfect in the van on a hot summers day. The tour itself was so interesting and our guide made it exciting. He threw in comedy at the right times. I loved this tour and will go on to take the Helter Skelter Tour, and the Nastly Nellie tour. I highly recommend this fun event. Oh and the star of the video "6 degrees of Helter Skelter "was there and nicely talking with and greeting everyone!

A very informative tour about the Manson Murders
Sat, Sep 7, 13   9:00 AM Psychobilly8 Male 30-39 Local Group of Friends
My friends and I really enjoyed the tour for the most part. Our guide was very informative and knowledgeable about the subject, and even provided additional information about the background and whereabouts of the victims just prior to their untimely deaths. The only somewhat unfortunate things about the tour were that the air conditioning on the tour bus could have been a lot better on such a hot day, and that some information, such as where Charles "Tex" Watson's gun landed - or where the Tate house victims' last meal was - tended to be a tad excessive. Other than those very minor things - the tour was a lot of fun, and I'd highly recommend it to anyone who has an interest in the Manson Murders.

Amazing Tour w/ very funny and knowledgeable guide

So much fun. Went on this tour with my sister and bf from out of town. They loved it and I did too. Even from living in LA, there are so many little facts that are unknown and this 2.5 hour tour felt like 30 min. Professional staff, clean bus, and small group. Highly Recommend for tourists or locals wanting to do something different. A++++

Even though I've grown up in Hollywood, it was amazing finding out history about places I constantly drive by! Made me love my city just that much more and would most definitely recommend it to others!

Really enjoyed the tour! Everyone was friendly, knew their Hollywood history, and even took us by a couple of extra places since the traffic was light that day. The only negative i could say was, the van was very hot inside. And it was a very warm day. But we didn't let that stop us from having a good time!! Thanks!

This is my second time taking this tour and I would HIGHLY recommend it to locals and out of towners alike! Scott and his top notch staff of entertaining tour guides give you a glimpse of the dark side of Tinsel Town and Bubbly Hills on this 2.5 hour tour. Additionally, The vans are clean and well maintained and the office (tours depart from) on Sunset Boulevard is easy to find with lots of street parking in the neighborhood! Next time I will take the Nasty Nellie tour....I hear Alison is a riot!
