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.

Fun Friday

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.

so much fun, if you like that sort of thing
Thu, May 15, 08   1:00 PM ottawa2 Female 50-59 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
i read find a death almost every day so when we decided to go to LA i booked our dearly departed tour first thing. i was more excited to meet scott than anything and i was not disappointed. scott is friendly and funny and is loaded with information about hollywood, old and new. scott is interested in preserving what is left of old classic hollywood, something i think is important even though i don't live there and probably will not have the opportunity to return. my husband had little interest in the dearly departed tour but was delighted he took it. i highly recommend this tour to anyone who visits hollywood, you learn lots of interesting info and have fun.

WOULD NEVER PLAN A TRIP TO CALIFORNIA WITHOUT GOING ON THE "DEARLY DEPARTED TOUR" - this was our third time and we absolutely enjoyed it just as much as the first time. Scott is so informative - he knows every piece of Hollywood trivia - Would recommend this tour to anyone!!!

Do this!

Scott is an excellent tour guide. He knows his LA stuff and encourages conversation among his customers, always seeking more knowledge about the Dearly Departed locally and nationwide. We were morbidly fascinated, appalled and disgusted by his stories, but he was able to have us laughing moments later. Enjoy your tour!

Fun tour off-the-beaten path

The guide was very nice and knowledgeable. We went off-the-beaten path for the average LA bus tour. We appreciate all the trivia about our home city. It was a fun family afternoon.

Must do tour
Tue, Apr 21  12:00 PM damienzoomer Male 40-49 International Tourist(s) Family With Children
We had a really great time on this tour. This was the only tour we had time for in LA and we left extremely happy. It gave us a small taste of LA - but with the addition of the tragic and darker side of Hollywood.

This is a must do tour!

Something different
Fri, Apr 3  12:00 PM deboom Male 50-59 International Tourist(s) Family With Children
We really enjoyed this tour and thought if was something a bit different and a bit more off the wall than the 'tourist trap' tours being touted on Hollywood Blvd. We liked the 'death' angle and the emphasis on both the golden age and more recent music and movies. The stop off at Westwood Cemetery represented what would otherwise been an undiscovered gem. Brian our guide was very energetic, funny, well-informed and passionate about his subject. A really great tour.

DARK AND INTERESTING
Tue, Mar 31  12:00 PM peachnut Female 50-59 International Tourist(s) Family With Children
This tour is a little different to the usual tours available on Hollywood/Sunset Blvd. It deals with the darker side of Hollywood. Unsolved crimes, murders, film locations, 911 calls and much much more, this holds your interest from beginning to end. Richard is very knowledgeable. I enjoyed listening to the stories and anecdotes, as well as getting to see some of the houses and places of interest around Beverly Hills and Hollywood. I can thoroughly recommend it.

If you miss this tour...you've missed the best
Fri, Jan 2  1:00 PM thedee13 Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Scott was an excellent tour guide. We learned and saw more than we'd ever imagined. He is so passionate about his craft and his business it's contagious. We came home a couple days after our tour and immediately watched Hollywood Death Trip on YouTube. He is the tour guide/narrator of the program. It will give you an example of what the tour is and if you will like him. If you're especially interested in someone's death be sure to let him know. He will make every effort to take you to that spot if at all possible. His tour is legit unlike most of the tours in LA/Hollywood. I so enjoyed it and my 15 year old had a fantastic time too. Even my husband was so glad that he went. Like my heading says, if you miss this one you've missed the best most interesting tour.
