What a great tour!!!
We booked this just to do something different as we had been to LA several times before. It was fantastic, and covers all the sights you want to see and more.
They also open the office for you to wait if you arrive early, and you can view all their memorabilia
This tour was my fav! Cant recommend Brian enough.. (he even took us past a few movie star homes!)
really quirky tongue in cheek tour,guide was really knowledgable and funny, we got sweets if we got the answer right!!
This covers a bit of everything in LA, from the Hollywood sign, history and film stars homes and their exploits! So if you only have a short window to do it all in LA this is a must. It's a 4D experience and uses all the senses within a smaller bus which is more private and you get a sense of everything, as you hear and see the stories. Highly organised, highly researched, brilliant way to see LA. Would do it again!!
LA has 31days of rain (So brian our tour manager told us) we had 3 of them the 5 days we visited LA even with the very bad weither this tour was informative ,great fun and well put together BRILLIANT TOUR we can say no more but BRILLIANT
This tour is fantastic. Having been to LA many times I wasn't sure what to expect on this tour. But it was an absolute blast! Our guide was so enthusiastic you could feel his passion for the history of the Hollywood scandals. I highly recommend this tour whether it's your first time to LA or if you're a local.
Wonderful guide, very informed and interesting - my 3 daughters took the trip while I worked (16,17 and 20 years of age) - they loved it.
Very good. A lot of information and very interesting. I would recommend this tour very highly.
This is a small bus tour which takes in homes and notorious sites where good, bad and ugly things have happened. It is made interesting by the tour guide as he has a way of presenting the information that is very interesting, humorous and enjoyable. One of the best tours around!
I sent my mother and aunt on this tour to give me some peace and quiet. They came back raving about it and were very impressed.
The tour was great! The guide (Brian) was a pro at Hollywood history. He knew all the sites and had stories to back it up. The van was comfortable, clean, and air conditioned. I was worried about getting car sick but that didn't happen. The guide even offered the front seat. I took my family on the trip and they were all thanking me.
Excellent day. Mr. Donnelly the tour guide made the trip! I would recommend to my friends. His knowledge of the area and its past added so much more than your usual tour.
GREAT TOUR!!!!!! Backed up by photos! This guy knows his stuff!
Brian is an excellent tour guide and was very knowlegeable and gave us interesting facts about the various sites. A highlight of our trip to the States, loved every minute of this tour. Can't wait to come back and do another tour next time!
The best tour we took in LA. Booked it for Friday 13th May. The guide (Brian) was fantastic, had us laughing so much. Cant wait to return hopefully dearly departed part 2 be ready by then!!!
I have lived in SoCal for 55 years. Thought I'd seen it all. This tour went above and beyond my highest expectations. Brian kept us amazed for two hours. This tour is a must for anyone who enjoys the scandalous side of Hollywood. I could not recommend any tour more highly.
Really enjoyable - learned about all the old school stars which is the era I love and also some of the new ones. Our guide took us on an impromptu visit of some of the stars houses. It was really well done, interesting, macabre and funny.
Brilliant Brilliant Brilliant
Brian was excellent tour guide. Really enjoyed the tour and learnt so many things about LA.
Very knowledgeable tour guide, small tour group numbers, a great overview of the underbelly of LA and a free general sightseeing trip thrown in as part of the tour! Highly recommended.
Was a very good tour.The tour guide was funny,knew his info and gave us plenty of time to enable us to get our cameras ready for a picture.We went with another tour group later that we didn't book with Viator-no where near as good as Dearly Departed.
Great trip, great fun and great value, which certainly tells you all kinds of things about Hollywood you'd never get on standard tours. How guide Brian keeps all that stuff in his head, god knows, but he keeps going for around three hours and is always entertaining. My only problem is, having taken pictures of nearly all the places he took us to, I'm having a job remembering which was which! Nick + Ethel London UK
