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.

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

Extremely entertaining and informative. It might not be the best tour for Brits, as they make a lot of references to stars only famous in the US. Some parts were particularly gruesome, but if you have a fascination with such things, you'll love it!

I loved Brian and I loved the vehicle being a small bus, closer contact with driver to ask questions, whoop out show biz answers, etc. I'm telling all my NZ movie buff friends about this tour. Brian showed such passion to 'the cause', and I appreciated this. Great to see 'Angel' location house, and Pete Duel's house.

Very entertaining and educational. Guide had a vast personal knowledge of history and area in addition to standard tour material.

Really intriguing tour of Hollywood area. Well planned with great tour guide. It's amazing to see how much happens in such a relatively small area - it's almost jinxed - or perhaps it something to do with the weird people who live there !! Throughly recommend it.

We would rate this as the best of several tours we did whilst in Los Angeles. Brian, our coach driver guide was full of anecdotes and fun and joined in with the passengers to make the whole experience a fun and interesting afternoon. We would certainly recommend the tour to anyone looking for something just a little different.

The tour was great. We had to change dates, and the tour operator was very accommodating. He let us change the dates. He had great stories and spots to stop and take pictures. It was a well thought out tour rather than just the generic Hollywood Homes. The binder to look at during the tour also was helpful as it let us step back in time.

We had a great time! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable & took us to lots of places! It was well worth the price.
TJ T USA
I really enjoyed this tour! I will definitely take more people to this as they come from out of town! Very comfortable vehicle, great information, interesting and fun! thanks!
My husband and I booked your dearly departed tour this past November and had a great time. The gentleman that directed our tour was well informed and kept us interested every blood curdling minute.
