AN ENTERTAINING TOUR OF HOLLYWOOD HISTORY!

MY FAMILY AND I ATTENDED THE DEARLY DEPARTED TOUR RECENTLY AND IT WAS THE MOST ENTERTAINING TOUR THAT WE HAVE BEEN ON. IT WAS EXCITING TO LEARN ALL OF THE WELL-KNOWN STORIES AND OBSCURE SCANDALS THAT HAVE BECOME APART OF HOLLYWOOD. IT WAS ALSO GREAT TO SEE MOVIE LOCATIONS AND HOMES OF THE STARS, AS WELL. OUR TOUR GUIDE RICHARD WAS A BLAST. HE WAS KIND, FUNNY, AND GAVE ALL A GREAT TOUR, HE WAS ALSO VERY ACCOMODATING TO ALL OF US. THIS IS AN AMAZING TOUR OF HOLLYWOOD AND I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE VISITING THE LOS ANGELES AREA. THANK YOU DEARLY DEPARTED TOURS FOR A GREAT TIME!

i had a very good time taking the dearly departed tour. I was very excited, counting down the days til the tour. I was over all pleased, yet my friends were some what disappointed. i do agree with them in some aspects. i wanted to see the OJ , Phil spector, marvin gaye, judith barsi homes,along where the black dalias body was found, rather than the house she was tortured in, but sadly they were not on the tour. overall it was quite fun and i did enjoy and would take it again!

Good but not great....

The tour guide NEEDS to keep dialoge going all during the tour. There was too much quite time when he could have bantered throughout the tour. There are always things to talk about in Hollywood - the homes, the folklore, the rumors, the celebrities. He should take other tours to see how they keep the guests enthralled. He was very nice but much too quiet. Also, I expected more on old Hollywood and the deceased. My biggest disappointment was the fact that we drove right by the cemetary and never drove in! The tape telling me who was buried there didn't do the trick!

Cool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We felt like this was the highlight of our trip. I like to hear macabre things but my husband is a bit hesitant to. This tour had a mixture of things we both enjoyed. It wasn't your typical boring monotone tour. The guide we had obviously put a lot of time and effort into this. He takes this very seriously. He supplied a great time for us and was a very nice and jovial guy. I didn't want it to end. I will highly recommend it to everyone!

Day of Death

If you want to experience the underside of Hollywood and hear all the juicy gossip about celebrities' deaths, then the Dearly Departed Tour is for you. River Phoenix, Elizabeth Short and Sharon Tate are just a few of Hollywood's victims that you will learn about on this fascinating tour with Host Scott Michaels, our resident expert on death.

I'm so glad we decided to take this tour. Scott added a great sense of humor to the tour and made it fun and interesting. I would recommend this tour to anyone that would like to learn about more than just the lights and glamour of Hollywood.

The tour guide kept all of the participants involved. He was wonderful. He was masterful on the streets, because we know that drivers can be aassholes. It was a real diversion for what we came for. Andre Watts at the hollywood bowl. He cancelled. This tour was our high light.

The tour was full of large and little details - never a boring lapse. The guide was extremely knowledgable and shared with all of us.
