We saw things we would never known on our own. We will back for a different tour in the future.

If you are looking for respectful tributes to your favourite Hollywood stars, this is not the tour for you!

This is a wild good-taste-be-damned romp through the seamy underside of Tinsel Town.

What a Way To Go!

This is an entertaining and informative way to spend your time. And if you have a curiosity about where the famous lost thier lives this is the way to find out. They are enthusiastic and very engaging. We had time to stroll through Hollywood Cemetary with a map to the location of Marilyn Monroe and other celebs who we have lost. It is also a great tour of much of the Hollywood and Bevery Hills area. The ride is very comfortable and the tour is just plain fun!! I highly recommend this tour and the two gents who run it. We had a really great time!!! Come on, you know you want to know...... here's where you'll find out!!!!

Ride was comfortable and easy for viewing. Learned quite a bit through several neighborhoods I somewhat knew. Brian (?) the guide was enthusiastic, eager to accommodate and full of fun antidotes.

My third nasty Nellie Oleson Tour; that should say
Sun, Aug 23, 15   3:00 PM BCWilliams Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Individual
One reason the tour was wonderful for me is that Alison Arngrim is a wonderful person who gives. This includes thinking of each audience, big or small (small in this case) as a new set of people she can interact with. She couldn't dive a canned performance if she wanted to. This was my third tour, and of course there are some things covered that were in earlier tours. Bur there was a surprising amount of new material, and definitely her communications with the group were not the same...see above. Great tour guide and driver too.

A Tour with Grave Consequences
Mon, Jul 27, 15   12:00 PM ibeckerman Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Other
A regular mulligan stew of a tour, definitely on the dark side, but presented with humor and good will. Hollywood behaving badly, with a dose of tragedy, and lots of dead people. All in all a tell all to please most (dark) tastes, and likely would have been Ed Wood's next movie had he stuck around. Note to the Fatty Arbuckle set - this is not your tour; most of the subjects are fresher.

2nd time evenbetter than the first

took this tour about four years ago and again it is great. Brian talked for an hour more than he was supposed to. He knew everything about every home we pasted. He knew where the spot on the sidewalk was that every one died on.. We were all over Hollywood, Bev. Hills... parts of LA it was great. and I would definately go again and recommend it.

Some Unknown Hollywood Facts

Took my sister, an occult aficionado, who was visiting from out of town and it fit the bill perfectly. We learned a lot of previously unknown facts and it was fun to see where things had happened. Brian, our tour guide, was very personable and loads of fun.

Fun and Interesting Tour - "The Dearly Departed"
Sun, Apr 12, 15   12:00 PM DonnaReels Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Other
Took the "Dearly Departed Tour" on Sunday 4/12, led by the most entertaining tour guide imaginable: Brian Donnelly. He and his driver took us to some great sights, not only of places where stars died but also of other sights of interest in the vicinity of the "death sights". There were so many that I can't recall them all. I highly recommend this tour to others looking for a look at the underbelly of LA! All round fun tour! Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Enjoyed the tour. It was definitely worth our time. We would do this again ! The tour's campy funkiness made it enjoyable, fun. We would never have been able to find these sights on our own. There was perhaps more of an emphasis on paparazzi than classic Hollywood (our metier) but the economics of this kind of thing dictate that you market to the common denominator and we're certainly not that. I especially liked our driver's editorial repartee and gatling gun delivery.

Friday 13th! Wonderful way to spend with a group of strangers that felt like friends. This tour was amazing. Tour guide, Brian, explained everything in a creative and factual way. There was a lot of positive energy even in the most tragic circumstances of the events he discussed. I would highly recommend this tour and hope to go back to do another of their tours. Well worth the cost
