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!

The Helter Skelter tour was amazing!! Scott Michael's knowledge of the events surrounding the case are endless! Combine that with his engaging personality and you have an entertaining as well as informative tour!! There is music of the era as well as photos and video clips used during the tour. Scott also points out along the way interesting facts and locations that are part of LA history. I would not recommend this for young children. If you have not purchased Scott's DVD Six Degrees of Helter Skelter please do!!! It is fascinating and ends with a visit to Barker Ranch in Death Valley where Manson was arrested for the murders. It is a must see!! Thank you Scott and staff for a wonderful tour!!!!!!

If you are at all interested in the "Hollywood Babylon" side of things, you should definitely go on this tour. Our guide, Brian Donnelly, was great. Very informative, no lapses of silence, keeping the guests totally engaged. Funny, poignant, and also informative about things not "dark" in between official tour locales. For instance, between "tragic sites" he pointed out the recording studio in which the Beach Boys recorded "Pet Sounds." See what I mean? A really enjoyable afternoon. We got to the storefront a little early and Scott Michaels showed us some of the unique items he has there. You can get cold drinks for the ride from him. The tour stopped midway at the Farmers Market for a "pit stop" and Brian said not to worry if were not back in the specified 10 minutes exactly, he would wait as he has never lost a guest yet. By all means make this a "must" on your Hollywood schedule.

We enjoyed the information from two people who were well informed. It's amazing how the 'others' live.

Thank you.

Brian, the guide, made all the difference in the experience with his enthusiasm and vast knowledge. Three generations-mother, son, and grandson all enjoyed the content and manner in which it was presented.

If you're interested in the "dark side" of Hollywood, then this tour is for you. We saw some interesting places and heard information that only the tour guide would know. If in the Los Angeles area take the time and do this tour. You will not regret it.

Brian, the tour guide, not only pointed out the "death places," but he has a thorough knowledge of the area, so he pointed out many other areas of interest. We got even more than what we expected. It was very reasonably priced and the 2 1/2 hours went very fast.

This was a very interesting tour. Some history I didn't know about the crimes was learned and some of the history about the crimes supports some of my views on the crime. I wouldn't call it fun as such but had a great time!

Great tour guide. Thanks Scott

Brian was our guide...what a character. He has so much Hollywood trivia in his head, it is hard to get it all in . Great energy, interesting stories, loved it! My sister and I brought our adult kids (18 and 23)....we all had a great time. Bus is comfy, great big picture windows....highly recommend..even for us locals acting like tourists for the day. Dinner after the tour at Pink Taco, which is on the same street as the tour office. Go early to check in...they have lots of Hollywood memorabilia to explore before the tour.

I live in the area and took a friend on the sight-seeing trip. I learned so much about my neighborhood that I didn't know. Our guide and driver, Brian, was knowledgeable and funny. It was a hoot!
