Sitting in front with the guide, I could see perfectly. I was able to take great photos. This tour was my main reason to take my vacation in L.A. and I was not disappointed at all. Following the case for twenty years, it was really awesome for me to see these places up close and in person. Coming away with a piece of the Tate fireplace as a souvenir was definitely worth the ticket. Thank you.

Best Tour Ever

If you would like a fun and informative tour of Los Angeles, this is for you! Dearly Departed Tours once again delivers the goods with this historic ride through the mad and macabre world of the Tate/La Bianca Murders. The tragic events of August 9th and 10th of 1969 are brought to life with the dignity of the victims always in the foreground. Scott Michaels is an amazing tourguide! Not only does he know his Manson history, but his personable nature and sense of humour make for a very pleasant 3 hour tour. I have been fascinated with the events surrounding the death of Sharon Tate and friends, and the La Biancas since about 1977, and Scott made it come to life for me. I got so much out of it that I will probably take this tour again some day.

I highly recommend this tour

I highly recommend this tour to anyone that has any interest in this case, even if you don't know much about it. And if you think you already know as much as there is to know, you will learn many new things. Scott is such a great tour guide and he encourages questions and interaction from his guests. You will see so many places that you would never have been able to see on your own, and you will be thinking about this tour for days, even weeks after attending.

Scott is a very enthusiastic guide - especially worth noting as he's had to have given hundreds if not thousands of tours by now!

Scott is very accomodating, and makes sure that everyone has a good time, that they get their photo ops, etc.

Highly recommended and you get to see areas of L.A. that you may not be familiar with as well!

Spooky & Mezmerizing L.A. Experience

There's a lot of lost and forgotten history in the City of Angels, and Dearly Departed Tours is a reservoir of historical anecdote. Take advantage of it too; the corporate takeover of Hollywood is endangering the unique preservation of Hollyweird's memory. During this tour, the past was brought right to our passenger windows, and all of LA's dark magic shimmered for us to glimpse at, even if for an instant. Whether you're a Manson buff or someone who just heard of Helter Skelter yesterday, this tour is sure to knock your socks off.
