My daughter and I had a marvelous time with tour guide Brian. Learning about Hollywood history was such an unusual twist to our other activities. We highly recommend this for anyone 16 and above.

One of the best tours in LA!

This is the second time I've done the Helter Skelter tour and probably won't be the last. Scott has done an amazing job on bringing this tragic event to life - not to glorify it - but to remember it and chronicle it as a piece of history that has had far-reaching affects on society.

Retracing the steps of the victims and the killers on those two nights in August of '69 is something that can't be described - it must be experienced. Not only is Scott (and I'm sure the other tour guides as well) is very knowledgable about the case but also about Hollywood history and points out other significant landmarks of that 60's era.

I took my partner who had no knowledge of the case and she hasn't slept in two days since! Haha! Great stuff. Highly recommend it.

Brian is an extremely energetic tour guide. He gave us great detail in all information provided. Some gruesome photos were provided to accompany the dialogue.

The tour was really great!! The tour guide has a passion for crime history and knows so much about the area it was fascinating to listen to him. Great experience and would go back again!

I went on this tour not knowing a whole lot about the Tate/LaBianca murders but this sort of thing is right up my ally. I also happened to be in town on the 45th anniversary which was cool. Scott was a great tour guide very knowledgable on the murders. I learned a lot!

Dearly Departed Tours never disappoints! This is my 4th tour and I always learn something new each time. Tour has something for everyone and isn't just about tragic Hollywood. Scott Michael's tours are second to none, always amazed at how much Scott and his tour guides know. THANKS AGAIN, we enjoyed immensely !!

Tour is way more than you expect.

This was really fun. Brian was our tour guide and he is great. This tour is way more than just visiting death sites. It was a great way to see Hollywood and the general areas. Brian also pointed out other interesting places and facts as we went along. The group was small and the van was comfortable. We liked it so much, we are planning another trip out to CA and specifically planning it to be in town during one of the Helter Skelter tour dates.

Definitey designed for tourists
Sat, Jul 26, 14   1:15 PM Corovan1010 Female 40-49 Local Group of Friends
The name of the tour is mesleading - this is designed for tourists, not for locals. more than half of the toru was sightseeing.

Really turned off by our driving getting frustrated when the car behind us starting beeping it's horn and our driver stopped short and hits the breaks hard.
