Took the Horror movie tour just before Halloween. It was absolutely awesome. Plus we had our favourite tour guide Brian so that made it even better. Saw lots of sites from our favourite movies and loved the bit where Brian dressed up as Michael Myers. This is by far my favourite tour company. Hoping to get to do the Helter... More

Much more interesting than your typical movie homes tour, learn where famous people died. Just watch out for your host's lousy death jokes.

Terrific tour of the sordid side of the movie business, chock full of tragic tales and interesting insights. Brian and Scott do such a great job as tour guides/ hosts. Highly recommended.

I highly enjoyed the regular Dearly Departed Tour made famous by Anthony Bourdain and Ghost Adventurers. Also their haunted tour is really really good. Great history and the stories that most aren't familiar with. I highly recommend and can't wait to do another tour with them.

We did this tour because we like things that are a little off beat. It's not that we don't enjoy the juicy Hollywood gossip every now and then but driving by the Kardashian's or hearing about Justin Bieber's melt downs didn't really appeal to us. This tour was so much more interesting and fun.

Very informative. Have taken the standard tours in LA and Hollywood but was interested in the underbelly side of it. Couldn't have been to a better place.

Our guide was Brian, who was out of this world, funny, cynical and very knowledgable. He mixed the macabre with the ridiculous things that go on in LA. The winner for me was the viper room and Westwood cemetery, so I could pay homage to the poltergeist kids. Brian Connelly was funny, witty, warm and three hours went so fast.... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
