I am a Los Angeles local & I needed something to do with an out of town guest. The Dearly Departed Tour certainly filled the bill on all levels. I was totally entertained the entire time. Our tour guide was wonderful & was full of all kind of interesting stories & facts. The tour was fun from the time of checking in at the office - make sure you tour the "museum" there until the very end. I would highly recommend it to all!

My friend was visiting from out of town and insisted on taking this tour- I'm glad she did. We had great discussions on the topic afterwards. Odd how this gruesome event can still stir up emotions from such a long time ago.

Very good tour and the tour guide was so knowledgable and fun! Wish there would have been more people signed up for the the Hollywood Movie Tour. Bet that would have been good too.

I love tours. I didnt love this one. it was all right--the driver's patter was by rote. nothing alive in it but hey, i suppose its tough to say the same thing a billion times. ask any good stage actor.

our tour had locals and out of towners. tour guide was a good driver, but rawther arrogant. i know, funny, right? tour driver arrogance. i did attempt to engage though, and asked a question abt a celeb death. "not on this tour," he said sharply. i wasnt sure if that meant i didnt pay for the info or..?

but within moments he was saying to an overly silent van, "feel free to ask any questions!"

funny, no one did. why would they when the one questioner was quashed?

driver also said, in an oh-so rehearsed way, "hey we hv a little extra time, wanna see some places not on reg tour?" because, u know, that leads him to the later request for tips.

49. a ticket plus a tip? um, no.

there are def interesting factoids and places--most of it is really dated though. some of the celebs talked abt are not even known any more. there is almost nothing abt celebs from the last 20 years.

i didnt see anyone tip the tour guide at the end if tour as he waited next to van step.

Lots of extra content, a very well rounded tour.

We were given so much more information than we ever expected on this tour! At every twist and turn we were told about the history of Hollywood, famous filming locations, and shown celebrity houses. We had expected this tour to be strictly about local deaths, but it was so much more. At first our tour guide was a little speedy on the delivery, but he quickly got into a pace that everyone was able to follow. The books they provide you with for extra information and the audio content really helps bring the stories to life, so to speak. I would definitely recommend this tour to other people.

Definately Dearly Departed

We had an awesome time on the Dearly Departed Tour. As a couple of teachers in for a conference, this was just the humorously wonderful way to see Hollywood. The tour guide was fantastic. Very knowledgeable about everything, not just the dark side. The little museum inside was fantastic and they had some really nifty stuff. We were able to stop and get some great photos (although we couldn't possibly have had time to get out of the vehicle). The tour came complete with a binder of info to look at at various stops along the way (can't keep the binder). I highly recommend this tour!!

The tour was fun, informative and just a blast. Our tour guide was a hoot. He kept us laughing the whole time. I learned a lot. Scott is a wealth of information. I look forward to doing the tour aging when we come back to LA and would recommend it to anyone. Not really for kids but a great time.

We had a great tour with Bryan - he was super enthusiastic and gave us tons of information about not only dead celebrities but architecture, history and even toured us around some celebrity homes. Great tour overall and highly recommended!

This was the best tours yet! (way better than TMZ). We did this as a team building work activity and we all loved it. Brian (our guide) showed us not just the ...bad and the ugly, but the good too! He is super knowledgeable about the area and very personable. This tour did not focus on the morbid, it emphasize the history of the area and memorialized those who have passed. It also set straight many of those urban legends about how and where people actually died. Can't wait to take my visiting guest on this tour! Thanks for a great afternoon!!!

I live in the area and took a friend on the sight-seeing trip. I learned so much about my neighborhood that I didn't know. Our guide and driver, Brian, was knowledgeable and funny. It was a hoot!
