Hollywood Celebrity Tours


Tragical History Tour

On this Hollywood celebrity tour, 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.


Helter Skelter Tour

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. Hosted by Scott Michaels – creator of the documentary The Six Degrees of Helter Skelter. Scott also worked directly with Quentin Tarantino as consultant on the film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019).


Hollywood’s History & Haunts

Join Dearly Departed Tours’ Brian Donnelly as he gathers bodies as the sun goes down… and Hollywood’s dark side comes to LIFE! Follow him as he leads the brave souls on foot down the Notorious Walk of Fame… and infamy! Headsets and wireless receivers for all to make sure you don’t miss a word of the weirdness!


Homicide True Crime Tour

Dearly Departed Tours’ curator Scott Michaels has personally assembled a collection of True Crime stories around LA that are so very gruesome, so “out-there”, they deserve their own tour. Decapitation, strangulation, a chainsaw, arson, call-girl/prostitution murders, spree and serial killers and a PLANE CRASH all around the Hollywood and West Hollywood area. Not for the faint of heart or the prissy, this is our grisliest tour yet!

Saturdays & Sundays

Behind the Boulevard Tour

Join the Best Guide in LA (LA Magazine) Brian Donnelly as you explore a part of Hollywood that most folks never get to see. Brian lives and breathes Hollywood and he personally has assembled this 90-minute walking tour of lesser known yet legendary landmarks. From movie locations, Rock n’ Roll, Infamous Murders and Scandals, this walk is a little more than a mile. From old Hollywood of the Golden Age to recent years, this is an untapped neighborhood with colorful stories, rich history, and elbow-room – and in Dearly Departed style, DIRT and dish.
