OMG!! Best tour EVER!!! I am star struck and ghoulish (I stare at the pages they warn you about, thinking "what the hell??"....of course I wouldn't recognize a celebrity on the street it he/she bit me, and I guess with dead people that's really not a concern, but I love this stuff!! Brian was the best tour guide I have EVER had and I've taken many tours in the area. He's fun, funny, informative and he knows his ghoulish shhtuff!! Coming back in a couple weeks with my sister for ther birthday, my daughter, her daugher and our other "sister"....a better time cannot be had!!!! Except maybe on the Helter Skelter tour....haven't done that one yet and I have my theories!!

Richard was a great tour guide and the 2 1/2 hour tour flew by, there was so much information and was presented in an entertaining way. There was a lot more to the tour than just "Tragical" events. I certainly plan to bring out of town guests on the tour.

Hollywood's Awesome Hidden Treasure

The tour was awesome - what can I say? My friend told me about it and since then, I was so excited about going on it. I was not disappointed in the least. I especially liked Richard the tour guide who kept us laughing and entertained by both sharing his knowledge, as well as his iPod full of facts, news stories and "scary music" - you will see what I mean.

Thanks Richard and Deadly Departed Tours. I will eagerly await future tours!

I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting LA. It was so much fun and our tour guide was exceptional and lots of fun. Great to see the houses of some of the most well known celebrities past and present.

bryan does an outstanding job with his insight and knowledge of the hollywood area.what i really liked was how he would take us to a spot where a scene from a movie was filmed and the actual movie scene would be playing on the tv screen inside the bus.

highly recommended.

The guide was great and we saw many homes and locations (like the actual bungalow where John Belushi passed away) we did not expect too see. Thank you. :)

Brian was brilliant!

Ivy and Tom showed up for our morning tour and we were the only ones there but Brian showed up all smiles and espressing enthusiasim for having us on this little private tour. Brian was such fun and his passion for Hollywood history is easily apparent. Brian also made the experience interactive which was really fun. You occasionally see people in this life that are doing what they were meant to do and Brian is one of those people as his love for history and also people comes across. I know I have written a lot about Brian but I think it is noteworthy as Ivy and myself walked away feeling our $85 investment for this tour was well worth the price due to Brian's fun personality and passion for his city. I would most definately recommend any of my friends to take this tour especially if they have the same fascination that I have in some of the crazy wild history that surrounds us all. Strangely enough my favorite part was not want I expected. I was really taken by seeing the run down apartment that Bela Lugosa lived his final years in and died on the couch in. Weeks after the tour I looked his history up on line and learned so much about him and I was really struck with the image of Lugosa walking that neighbourhood old, alone and addicted to pain killers. He was a world icon and I thought I would love to spend a night in that apartment. So give Brian a raise or a big brass wrestlers type belt that has blazoned upon it "Best Crazy Dead People Tour Guide 2011" and he could wear it on the tours, well, no actually, his brilliant personality is enough, just give him a bonus or raise.

The high point of our "vacation"
Wed, Sep 3, 08   1:00 PM tommoran Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
You should understand that I have a severe attention deficient disorder and would rather stick a needle my eye than go on a tour bus. But I have been married for 28 years to the same woman and she has put up with me (and my mental problems), so it is only right that I make some compromises. From beginning to end, I would spellbound by Scott. He is an incredible source of information. He is a very interesting and dynamic individual. It was a small group in his van (six of us... it might have been eight). Each story and each stop was fascinating. Some of the images in his booklets (not meant for children) left me speechless. I was miserable the entire vacation except for the 3 hours and 20 minutes we spent in Scott's van. I understand he is planning a "Hollywood Movie Tour" .... if my wife drags me on another "vacation" I hope to get it included.

The Helter Skelter Tragical tour despite the dark history of the subject is an interesting and highly entertaining tour, the multimedia presentation interlaced with Scott's amazing knowledge of the case and hollywood history in general, you even see all the subcultures of LA whilst on it. Willy Wonka in his purple Willy Wonka car, tranny prostitute and a guy walking the streets with a matic (trench Digging tool). Looking forward to going on his other tours on my next trip to LA

The departed and much much more.

Brian knows L.A. and its history and obviously works hard to be good at his job. He is! He delivers a tour that's not just about the departed, but includes a lot of other fascinating L.A. information. I'm recommending this tour to all my friends who go to L.A. I've been going to L.A. for years and finally decided to do a tour. I couldn't have picked a better one. Thanks for a great time!

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!!

We had a great time on the tour. Scott is very knowledgeable on Helter Skelter and does a great job on the presentation. I would recommend the tour for anyone.
