What a great tour! Our tour guide was enthusiastic and informative. We would totally join his tour of celebrity estates.

Fabulous tour!

When you have a guest coming to town, you want to ensure that you show them the best time and, therefore, pick the best tour for your guest. So, I was a bit overwhelmed with the array of options in the endless sea of choices for tours. But I am certain that I chose the best one. The Tragical History Tour was everything that I wanted and so much more! There were so many things that we loved. We loved the tremendous energy that the guide brought to the tour and the incredible arsenal of knowledge that he was armed with. We loved his silly humor and wacky opinions about random things. We loved that every second of the, almost 3 hours, was filled with facts and fun. We loved the fact that the bus was cozy and covered, which was amazing in the LA sun and not common among the other tours. And I loved that although I am an LA local and a huge fan of all things LA and Hollywood and was still very pleasantly surprised to hear so many great things that I wasn't aware of. I especially loved the perfectly timed Cemetery break. All in all, it was a tour that I would highly recommend to anyone.

DARK AND INTERESTING
Tue, Mar 31  12:00 PM peachnut Female 50-59 International Tourist(s) Family With Children
This tour is a little different to the usual tours available on Hollywood/Sunset Blvd. It deals with the darker side of Hollywood. Unsolved crimes, murders, film locations, 911 calls and much much more, this holds your interest from beginning to end. Richard is very knowledgeable. I enjoyed listening to the stories and anecdotes, as well as getting to see some of the houses and places of interest around Beverly Hills and Hollywood. I can thoroughly recommend 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.

Enjoyed The Extra Stuff

I had done the Manson tour before, and I was excited to take part in this particular tour. I enjoyed all of the information that I learned about the city where I live. I enjoyed the extra pieces of information unrelated to death and tragedy as well. It made the tour seem lighter than I had anticipated. I would highly recommend the tour. Brian was a fantastic tour guide as well!

Amazing tour!

If you are into the side of Hollywood that is different and more real, this is a great tour! Brian was an amazing guide and had tons of knowledge about the dark and lighter side of Hollywood. I also got to meet Scott who was very friendly and down to earth. Scott's collection is at the meeting place for this tour and you too can own a piece of the tragical history of Hollywood!

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

Great tour! The museum in the store is amazing!

Great tour of many notable famous spots and people. Hard to get good pictures from inside the van, if you are not seated on the correct side of the van to view the location being passed. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in older celebrities, not just current ones.

THIS WAS THE HIGHLIGHT OF OUR TRIP TO LA!!!!!
Sat, Feb 7  1:00 PM Maureenpk Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Other
My 24 year old daughter and I went on this tour, as part of our 5 day stay in LA. The owner and the driver/guide were amazing! Very friendly, helpful, and FULL of LA and Hollywood stories and trivia that we would have never known. The van was very comfortable and every seat provided a good view. I was relieved to find that I am not the only one who is obsessed with details about celebrity deaths! Money WELL SPENT and we will definitely do another tour the next time we are in LA!

This is the third time I've taken a dearly departed tour and I can honestly say it's one of my favorite things to do in Los Angeles. This is the second time I've taken the tragical history tour and I still learned new information. They are always revamping and adding new tidbits of information. I'll definitely be back! If you're in LA, you gotta go!

BEST TOUR EVER!!!
Fri, Jan 23  1:00 PM kjdaggie Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
This was by far the best tour that we've ever been on. EVER. First, I do not really care to leave reviews that often but this company more than deserves it. The owner is very proud of the accuracy and flow of his tour, and it definitely shows. The tour is super informative, educational, and historical while being non-stop entertainment the entire time. Our tour guide was absolutely hysterical and made the in-between stops time a blast! We learned so many things about LA that had nothing to do with the "deadly departed" but that were fascinating. And of course, the "deadly departed" part was wonderfully morbid and super interesting. Disclaimer- if you have a weak stomach or are super conservative, this tour may not be for you. However, the rest of us adventurous/fun people will take up all the seats for you! We can't wait to get back to LA so we can take the other tours this company offers! A++!!!
