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!!!Reviewed by: Amanda M, June 2011
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.Reviewed by: Chris M, May 2011
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.Reviewed by: Madalyn L, United Kingdom, May 2011
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.Reviewed by: Agnieszka Z, November 2010
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.Reviewed by: Leeann F, October 2010
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 UKReviewed by: Nick R, October 2010
i loved the tour!!!Reviewed by: Betty j A, September 2010
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!Reviewed by: Rebecca B, United Kingdom, August 2010
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.Reviewed by: Lorraine W, New Zealand, August 2010
