This tour was exactly what we wanted. Before setting off, we were asked if there were any places we wanted to visit specifically then we loaded into the minibus and off we went on the Dearly Departed tour. Three hours seems short but there at the end of the tour we were exhausted. The small group numbers encouraged discussion and the guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining in a dark sense. I recommend this to everyone visiting LA. The one place we forgot to request was to visit the site of the wonderland murders, maybe next time.
If there were more stars, I'd add them! This was a FANTASTIC tour! Our guide was awesome, and the tour was so much more than we even expected! DO NOT MISS THIS TOUR!!!!
This was a totally enjoyable tour - the tour guide know his stuff and is very passionate. The books and photos to authenticate was fantastic.
Great. The guide really knew his stuff and made the tour come to life. If I go back, this will be a must-do again.
I did a couple of these star spotting type tours and this WAS the best one. Great guide and got to see heaps of star attractions over the three hours of the tour, very well run. Would definitely do again.
Great tour. Much better than the standard Hollywood homes tour. Guide was fantastic. Worth every penny!!!
Everyone should do this tour. If you enjoy hearing about the tragic stories behind LA, this tour is for you. The guide was absolutely amazing and knew his stuff. He made the tour very interesting.
I would rate this as the best trip I did in Los Angeles. It was the most interesting and entertaining, and the driver was funny and very knowledgeable about all sorts of things. It's nice that it's a small bus because it makes it a more personal experience. As soon as I get a chance, I'll be back to do the new movie location tour that the company is starting up shortly.
Excellent tour! Tour guide was very informative and passionate about sharing information. I would recommend this to anyone who has an interest in "old" and "new" Hollywood!
I cannot fault this tour. It is an absolute must if you are visiting Los Angeles. The guide really knew his stuff. The content of the tour had obviously been planned to a high degree. Just make sure you take it!
We wanted to do a tour of LA but were not really interested in visiting all the 'homes of the stars' however after finding the reviews on this site, decided this had to be worth a go. We were so glad we chose this trip as the tour guide really knew his stuff. His recommendations for dinner that evening were also spot on! If you are interested in the darker history of LA then this is the trip for you, and if you're not then you'll still enjoy it!
We had a fantastic guide, full of witty and interesting facts. It is a MUST DO when in Los Angeles!
Excellent! The guide really knew his stuff and was a born entertainer! I also loved the additional touches like the musical interludes, the police report, and the fridge magnet. A must do for anyone visiting Los Angeles.
Great tour. Our guide was a wonderful host. I can't imagine getting that much out of any other tour.
