Great, Campy & Interesting Fun!

Our tour guide Scott was wonderful. He was a wealth of knowledge and so nice.

We had a great time and highly recommend his tours. They are fun and campy.

And we will most definitely try to go on another of his tours. We are in L.A. quite a

bit and this was one of the most fun and interesting things we have done. Clean

tour van and a really good value. A Dearly Departed Tour is a must!

Great - really good value for how much you see and how long it lasts (3.5 hours!). Also, it's not just murders and death - it works well as a tour of the stars homes too.

Full of Facts and Fun

Scott (our tour guide) was what my friend described as a 'true-believer". His love of Los Angeles was apparent throughout the tour. His knowledge of true crime as well as other L.A. fun facts makes this tour extremely worthwhile. For locals or visiting friends this is a great way to spend the afternoon.

Scott is a fountain of knowledge!

We (me/mom/aunt/, daughter 14 and niece 18) took this tour in June and enjoyed every minute of it! Scott does a fine job of providing bizarre tidbits of knowledge/juicy gossip mixed with a tour of stars' homes/death scenes/crime scenes. He also gives info regarding other areas of interest and, most impressively, is passionate about preserving Hollywood history.

He's spent a lot of time researching the subject and Hollywood--seems to know everything about the area. Hard to believe he's not a native Californian.

He's also very lively and fun to listen to.

Anyone who's interested in Hollywood history, stars of today and notorious events of the past will love Scott's tour.

My family and I all enjoyed the tour very much. There was alot of information about everthing we seen. If we had questions Scott had answers. When we go back to California we will definately take the tour again it was great. Greatly appreciated greatly enjoyed....

Tragical History Tour - Juicy and enjoyable
Thu, Jun 5, 08   1:00 PM Delaine Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
My husband and I enjoyed the Tragical History Tour very much. It was great being driven around for over 3 hours in air conditioned luxury. We loved the special touch of the "soundtrack" he put together... it contained songs, actual 911 calls and other unique sound bites that corresponded to the tour. The other special touch was the binder of photos that matched up with the sights along the way. It was interesting to compare houses - then vs. now using the photos. The guide had a very pleasant, professional voice. There were many great stories and I learned a lot of great gossip. My husband wasn't sure about doing this tour but afterward he gave it very high marks. It was fun stopping at the infamous George Michaels restroom. We even got a photo of the urinal.

I would recommend even a few more relevant songs to fill the down time during the drive. I wish I could've done the Manson Tour as well!

Loved everything about the tour. Thought it was excellent. Already told people about it and gave information.

You should put it on the Orange County Employees' Association so more people in Orange County know about it. It's an association for the employees of Orange County and this is their union. They give discounts to certain events. I think this would be excellent
