Dearly Departed, Dearly Loved
From the moment we stepped through the door of Dearly Departed Tours we were welcomed by Scott (creator) and Brian (tour leader) and we were instantly fascinated by their stories and passion for the intriguing and morbid history of Hollywood.
The tour (Tragically History Tour) was a great mix of facts, humour and seriousness touching on many of the scandels and murders that make Hollywood so famously unique. There really is history on every corner!
This is a tour that is well planned and well thought out to every detail by Dearly Departed. We learnt stories and saw significant sites involving the Black Dahlia, Sharon Tate, George Burns, River Phoenix, John Belushi, Marilyn Munroe, and even Simon Cowell to name a few. Even the site of the toilet break had a scandalous past! Hollywood homes were also shown.
The tour was the mixture of story telling by Brian, audio recordings by Scott, recordings of 911 calls of actual events and written material.
We had done the hollywoods homes tour with another larger company and would suggest bypassing these larger operators and go with dearly departed tours for a more engaging and entertaining tour operator who takes care of their customer.
When I am back in Hollywood I will be booking with them again so I can do the Hollywood movie tour - a tour no other company offers.
