Great tour but not what I expected

Our tour guide was great and the tour was very well structured but I didn't know many of the people we talked about so it was a little bit more boring than I expected. Im not sure if I didn't read the tour description accurately but I think it should be specified that the tour was about older cases and older Hollywood.

Wanted to be wowed but wasn't

I really wanted to love this tour, I chose it because i was unable to attend the Helter Skelter tour which was booked out. But unfortunately despite having a great host and a comfortable ride, the tour content was fairly uninspiring.

This might be because actually seeing the phone booth used to call 911 out the front of the Viper room where River phoenix died in reality is about as exciting as watching a person sleep. Reality can be very boring. Even playing 911 calls placed for the murders and deaths mentioned you can access on the internet so nothing really blew my mind.

one of the best things we did while in the US!

I'd been looking forward to this tour for quite a while and wasn't disappointed. I took my husband, who honestly was not particularly interested in going. We saw so much in just a few hours, it was a great mix of stuff that is virtually pop culture folklore, some that maybe you'd forgotten about over time, and some that I had just never heard about. It's interesting every step of the way and our tour guide was so knowledgeable and entertaining. It's tragic, creepy, sad, unnerving, and a touch macabre, but it's also so much fun! It really changed the way we saw parts of LA during our time there and it was amazing to see so many places that are part of the darker side of pop culture. This was definitely one of the best things I did while in LA, certainly more interesting than a studio tour! Even my husband admitted he found it more entertaining than he was expecting. I understand it's not everyone's cup of tea, but if you have even the slightest interest in the darker side of life, you'll love this tour.

This was a very fun, entertaining tour! I highly recommend n our tour guide was super funny and kept the tour fun, and he is so knowledgeable about celebrities and the places he took us plus more! We've done other tours before but this is by far the best tour we've done so far. I'm looking forward to attending other tours they offer!!

One of the advertised activities of this tour was to visit the cemetary where Marilyn Munroe and other Hollywood

celebrities were laid to rest. We pulled up to the gate just to be told there was a private event taking place and

Fun and Interesting Tour - "The Dearly Departed"
Sun, Apr 12  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.

Brian was the most AMAZING tour guide!!! He loves his job so much! The dearly departed tour is not just your standard tour of "and if you look to your look to your right..." Brian knows the history and goes into great detail about the story. Best tour I've been on! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Everyone knows about the murders but on this tour you learn about the way that both victim and suspect lives intertwined leading up to the murders.

I highly recommend this tour

I highly recommend this tour to anyone that has any interest in this case, even if you don't know much about it. And if you think you already know as much as there is to know, you will learn many new things. Scott is such a great tour guide and he encourages questions and interaction from his guests. You will see so many places that you would never have been able to see on your own, and you will be thinking about this tour for days, even weeks after attending.

The tour guide was awesome! He was incredibly knowledgeable about Hollywood History.

It was even a fun to check out the shop while we were waiting for the tour to start. The guy running it was also filled with lots of fun details about Hollywood history.

The van was comfortable and air conditioned. I can't recommend this place highly enough!
