Do you have a fascination with famous scandals? Are you enthralled by stories of celebrity deaths? This is the perfect tour, crafted to satisfy all of your twisted curiosities! Come along in the “Tomb Buggy” on Hollywood's Tragical History Tour as you enjoy a revealing ride through the seedy underbelly of the City of Angels!


Your Director of Undertakings will guide you through decades of death, murder and just plain fun. Once your tour um... departs, you will be treated to the most tickling tales of tinsel town tragedies, in the cool comfort of the luxurious Tomb Buggy.

In two and a half hours, you will be escorted to such infamous locations such as:
  • The Last Breath Locations of Michael Jackson, River Phoenix, Bela Lugosi
  • The Murders of Rebecca Schaeffer, Sal Mineo and the Black Dahlia
  • Where Janis Joplin and John Belushi’s spent their final moments
  • Where Sharon Tate had her last supper
  • The Bizarre deaths of Diane Linkletter, Albert Dekker and Robert Lees
No city in the world has a more colorful and sordid history than Hollywood and nowhere else have so many famous (and infamous) met their maker. There are approximately 100 locations you'll be guided to on this thoroughly entertaining and fascinating tour.

There is one restroom break, appropriately where George Michael was caught red handed. A complimentary copy of George’s arrest report will be provided to all guests.

On top of that you’ll walk away with a list of infamous addresses the tour isn't able to cover – so you can make a day of it!

All in all, almost 100 sites are crammed into 2.5 hours, making it the best bang for your buck!

As seen on E! 20 Most Horrifying Hollywood Murders, Anderson Cooper 360, Getaway! and The Girls Next Door and has also been voted one of the 1,000 Things to do Before You Die.

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
