DEARLY DEPARTED TOURS
CELEBRITY DEATH & SCANDAL
Dearly Departed Tours’ founder Scott Michaels is the authority on the Dark Side of Hollywood. Our standard Dearly Departed Tour is a multimedia Hollywood bus tour like no other. Explore cases like Manson, Janis, Whitney and Michael, and lesser-known celebrities with even more spectacular exits. You’ll also see the final resting places of Marilyn, Natalie, Farrah and more. Peppered with crime scene photographs and audio clips (including 911 calls), the tour has earned its consistent 5-star ratings.
DEARLY DEPARTED TOURS & ARTIFACT MUSEUM
We’ve been featured on the E! Show Hollywood Death Trip, Anthony Bourdain’s The Layover, Ghost Adventures and dozens more, and the FX’s American Horror Story even paid tribute to the tour. Scott Michaels’ one-of-a-kind collection of celebrity death memorabilia now on display (with an upgraded ticket) in our Museum that includes Rock Hudson’s deathbed, a piece of the fireplace from the Sharon Tate house and now Jayne Mansfield’s Death Car.
We take you to the homes and locations through Los Angeles and the Sunset Strip where your favorite celebrities lived and died. From the restaurant where Sharon Tate had her “Last Supper” to the pay phone in front of The Viper Room used for the River Phoenix 911 call.
In this multi-media tour we reconstruct the lives of both killers and victims in the hours leading up to these horrific crimes, details of which are told by the killers themselves. We’ll discuss the myths and motivations for this legendary case that brought an end to the Decade of LOVE.
