Definitely Do Dearly Departed

If you like history mixed with passion and comedy, I highly recommend the Dearly Departed Tour. Our guide, Richard, had a great sense of humor and a great passion for Hollywood history, both the common and obscure. The tour is lighthearted and the 3 hours goes by fast. If you want to laugh as well as learn, this is a tour you should take. The only drawback for me was my seat position in the tour van. I was unable to take any pictures of great quality. As much as a I hate the open air bus, I think it would be more conducive for this tour than the van.

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.

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.

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.

Brian was a great tour guide! He had so much knowledge of everything related to the tour and some great personal stories to share. I thought this would be something different to do for my birthday and we all had such a great time! I would highly recommend this tour to everyone! Thanks!

BEYOND FABULOUS!

I am a Los Angeles local & I needed something to do with an out of town guest. The Dearly Departed Tour certainly filled the bill on all levels. I was totally entertained the entire time. Our tour guide was wonderful & was full of all kind of interesting stories & facts. The tour was fun from the time of checking in at the office - make sure you tour the "museum" there until the very end. I would highly recommend it to all!

Just a little about myself before I go into the review....I took this tour on 7/31/13. I am 31, from NY and was out in LA with four other friends my age also from NY. We all enjoyed the tour immensely! Brian, our driver and tour guide, was outstanding! His wealth of knowledge about the subject matters covered on the tour were outstanding and impressive. His stories and great sense of humor made the tour even more enjoyable. The "tragic" side of LA was covered in-depth and I saw/heard just about everything I wanted to. I had high expectations for this tour based on reviews I've read, as well as frequenting Scott's Findadeath site before. My expectations were surpassed! I will recommend this tour to anyone who asks. Next time I am in LA, I will definetly look into taking one of the other tours offered by Dearly Departed. Scott and Brian, keep up the fine work!

unique look at local history

This tour is hard to book and is almost always sold out. I got fortunate and was able to get on board. The tour was fantastic and "Richard" the guide was very knowledgeable. I would recommend this tour to anyone who likes the seedy and sorid side of history. LA is filled with these tales of woe. It was a fun day and would do it again.
