Trip was really interesting. Brian was fantastic as our driver and guide and included lots of interesting commentary - not just about the dearly departed! We did the trip on Halloween (and visiting from England), it was so much fun to see all the effort taken to decorate the houses and gardens and Brian included an additional 'homes of the Stars' bit. The trip was full at 16 people which gave it a friendly, informal feel.
Well worth doing - and a bit different from the usual trips on offer. Make sure you arrive early and have a good look around at all the collected memorabilia in the mini-museum!!
Absolutely loved this tour. I loved the gallery prior to our tour. I was thrilled to meet Scott and chat with him about Rocky Horror etc (I have been following his site since Girls Next Door) Our guide was Brian and he is absolutely hilarious and informative. I cant praise this tour enough thank you
Our tour guide, Brian, was so much fun! He was so knowledgeable and gave us information not only about the tour itself but other interesting items about Los Angeles. Well worth the time and money and would definitely take another one of their tours again!!
This tour was extremely enjoyable. Richard our tour guide was funny, very friendly, extremely knowledgeable and explained everything in great detail. Definitely one of the best tours in LA. Dearly Departed is a must do!
The tour guide was fantastic, the tour was interesting. I liked the fact that other points of interests were shown and talked about on the tour and the book was a good guide.
We loved the tour and the information the guide gave was incredible. The one complaint we have is that the van did not have large enough windows to see the sites. Anyone sitting on an inside seat, or in the middle of the last row could not see the buildings that were being pointed out.
A great tour. Well worth doing if you're in los Angeles and wanting something a bit different. Recommend!
If you are looking to do something different that's a lot of fun this is the perfect tour. Brian is an amazing guide with lots of great information and a wonderful sense of humor.
This tour was amazing! Our tour guide Brian was fantastic, full of personality, humour and enthusiasm. Brian had an amazing knowledge of the seedier side of Hollywood, and even managed to keep our pre-teen boys entertained throughout the tour. The tour was heartbreaking, and fascinating. Having been a murder 'buff' for many years, I really 'enjoyed' seeing all the places I had read about. Would highly recommend doing this tour to anyone interested in something different, interesting and entertaining.
The tour was excellent and the guide was superbly knowledgeable! I would definitely do this again.
Loved this! Bring back the George Michael toilet stop and send me the arrest report!
Go on this this, it's absolutely brilliant. Meeting point is a shop on Sunset, quite near to Amoeba Music, so pretty easy to find.
On arrival, we were greeted By Scott, who showed us around the shop's collection of curiosities. Give yourself time for this. Then it was of on our minibus with our guide Brian Donnelly, who has a real passion and enthusiasm for all things morbid and curious, all done in a very interesting and entertaining style, which really made this tour an absolute pleasure. Amongst other things we saw, The Chateau Marmot, The Viper Rooms, crime scenes of the Black Dahlia, where Michael Jackson passed away and it's relation to Elvis's LA place. Do it!
Brian our guide was Awesome. Funny, interesting and extremely knowledgeable about the area. Definitely worth doing
