Dearly Departed is a Hollywood Gem!

Scott Michaels is knowledgeable, funny and always entertaining. He adds depth and intrigue to a city that we thought we already knew. I've taken his tour twice, and will continue to recommend it to friends, both near and afar. It's so nice to be able to share an afternoon with someone who is so passionate about his interests.

So much fun

My high school friends and I get together four times a year to check out off-beat activities we wouldn't normally experience. Scott did a fantastic job of making hollywood history come to life, up close and personal. The hours flew by and not only did we learn some fascinating details about hollywood, we got more ideas about things we can do on future trips! Thanks Scott - we really enjoyed it!

Scott does an awesome job! I was on graveline 3 times and he has improved on the formula. There are sound clips and pictures to go along with amazing stories and overall incredible knowledge of Hollywood. You can tell this is his passion and it makes the tour so much more enjoyable. It is not all macabe (not that I mind) and he seasoned it with some cool "undead" spots. Worth the money and the time. I would do it as a first stop in LA this way you know spots you may want to revist.

This tour is among the Best in LA

I cant stop thinking about what I saw and how much I enjoyed this tour. Not only is it packed with places I could never find by myself, but its guide (scott) is really into what he does. Its a tour I plan on taking every time I come out to LA. The guide scott is a very witty and a fun guy to listen to. He encouraged questions and really gave me a sense on what its like to live in LA (Hollywood) also. The places he takes you and the things he points out was right up my alley. A nice mixture of movie shooting locations and shooting locations. Very interesting and a must for any Hollywood visitor. Makes all the other guided tour (and I took them) boring and longer than they need to be!

Enjoyed the tour very much. The tour guide Scott really knows his stuff. Well versed on the history of Hollywood and locations. Really knew his way around town and seemed to really enjoy his job.

Would advise anybody to go. We are ready to take another one of his tours.

Great time by all!

Amazing and FUN!!!

The 3 1/2 hour went by soooo fast. It was informative, amazing and often hilarious. I thought we were going to just see some grave sites. It's much more!!! We didn't want it to end. We would recommend it more than any other tour. You will be pleasantly surprised.

This is the most fun Star Tour in LA

Scott, the tour guide is absolutely great. He has the best and most current gossip along with music or testimony to accompany each site we visited, that along with the pictures of the past made it the most fun.

This was a very interesting, well presented and very funny tour. Scott showed some great sights, both popular and lesser known. It isnt all death and tragedy tho, lots of humour thrown in. I would do this tour again.

Everything I expected and more

I enjoyed the Dearly Departed tour immensely. Its a fantastic way to see the underbelly of LA. I loved the multimedia angle as well, with Scott having photos and playing 911 calls relevant to the sites we were visiting. Scott is a magnificent guide, seeming to have boundless amounts of information, definately the kind of person you'd love to have a few beers with! My only disappointment is that i can't go on Scott's other tours any time soon! Dearly Departed was actually the main reason i was in LA, and i wasn't disappointed!

We had such a great time. I've lived in SoCal for 25 years and never experienced anything like this. It will now definitely be included on the "must see" list of things for friends and family that come visit. Thank you for your enthusiasm!

Not what I expected

This activity (tour) was poorly represented. The expectation of visiting places where well known people met their demise was not met. This was just another Hollywood tour of celebrity homes & places of note.....The guide was not amusing or engaging. I was very disappointed.

Scott, is an excellent tour guide. Has real knowledge of the tour.

Very interesting (Second time) we have taken this Tour.

Note: Scott, Your the "BEST" ran two blocks to return my camera, inwhich I left on the Bus...

Highly Reccommended!

Will see you again soon.....Waiting for the new tour to open

Best tour I've ever been on
Sun, Jul 6, 08   1:00 PM skywyze Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Most tours of the L.A. area take you to see the "stars" homes. You end up seeing gates, doors and hedges the "stars" use to keep away prying eyes. This tour takes you through the history that made the area. Most interesting history has to do with scandal and crime, this is the tour that walks you through it. It is very tastefully done, no blood and gore, just facts and locations. Highly recommended for anyone interested in walking through history and seeing what made L.A. great.
