FABULOUS

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

Second Time Around

This is my second DDT. It was just as good as the first one I took nearly a year ago. It was recommended to me by someone else that took it on a trip to LA. Scott has put a lot of thought and effort into the tour. He shows a real passion for the history of Hollywood and is making great pains to try and preserve what he can even if the place doesn't exist any longer due to the tear downs going on in LA right now. So big kudos to Scott. I look forward to trying his new tour when it's ready and I recommend this tour as a great Hollywood overview for anyone visiting LA especially for the first time. People should not be turned off by the macabre title and perceived themes. It really covers more than just tragical history even if that is the main component.

Highly recommended!!!

What a great tour. Although we went on the tour to see the darker side of LA, it also incorporates other sites of interest to most visitors to the city. Scot is a fantastic guide who is informative and fun and unlike other tours is happy to make changes at the request of his guests. What a great way to see LA!

I thought that this tour was a lot of fun. Our tour guide was humorous and knew a lot so whenever anyone had any questions he was able to answer quickly and honestly. I had a great time, I had never taken a tour through Hollywood before and I felt that this one gave a lot of perspective and history on the city. We got to see a lot of touristy spots as well as learn about a lot of Hollywood's more mysterious side. Me and my friend had a great time and I would recommend anyone go on this tour. It was a lot of fun!

IT WAS VERY INTERESTING

MY HUSBAND AND I WERE THE ONLY TWO ON THE TOUR THAT DAY. iT WAS GREAT BECAUSE WE HAD THE TOUR GUIDE TO OURSELVES AND COULD SEE EVERYTHING. THE PRESENTATION OF THE SITES WITH BACKUP MUSIC OR TAPED AUDIO SET THE STAGE FOR EACH SITING. IT WAS INTERESTING AND INFORMATIVE.

WE HAD A GREAT TIME!

I loved this tour. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and everything was saw was interesting. I was pleasantly surprised by the mix of people on the tour (all ages) but although the tour is focused on the more macabre parts of Hollywood history, it was still a great general tour and not too gory or requiring of any special knowledge. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tour.

great, informative, entertaining tour. scott is very enthusiastic about the tour he gives and

encourages comments and questions from everyone. also, he was very attentive to my 80 year old dad (who has some trouble with his eyesight) which we both really appreciated. highly recommended--more like having a friend take you on a tour as opposed to having a bored, robotic tour guide.

Being a transplant to LA, I found this tour to be fascinating and educational. It reflected on magical tales of the city along with its gory past. I took my parents and we all enjoyed it thoroughly.

Awesome memories of the past

We live in El Segundo near LAX. We were the only locals on the tour. What a great experience! Just driving through areas and where crime scences happened was an awesome experience. Our tour guide Scott was very informative and entertaining. What a great day we had and I would highly recommend this to any one visiting Hollywood and even locals. We had a blast ! I have recommended this tour to many of my friends, and I would love to do it again. Thanks Scott for a great and historical day. Love, Marilyn @ Jeff Sollee.

The Dearly Departed Tour was outstanding. This was our 2nd time on this tour because we were so impressed the first time. The tour promptly departed at 1:00 and returned around 4:30. Scott was a knowledgable tour guide and shared a wealth of interesting information. The van was comfortable and it was relaxing to be chauffered around the areas of Bel Air, Beverly Hills, and Hollywood. I highly recommend the tour to anyone who in interested in Hollywood history.
