It’s a light-hearted look at the dark side of Hollywood.

Dearly Departed Tours
Hollywood is where stars are born. It's also where many stars meet their maker. Dearly Departed Tours makes a business of the macabre, taking visitors on a slew of off-beat tours that commemorate death and showbiz.
Founder Scott Michaels is an authority on the subject and has been curating tours that explore crime scenes and celebrity deaths since 2005. In fact, his twisted tours have been featured on E!, The Layover with Anthony Bourdain, and American Horror Story.
Each walking tour or multimedia bus tour offers something a little different. The Tragical History Tour, for instance, focuses on the homes and locations where celebrities passed away, from Michael Jackson's mansion to the scene of River Phoenix's overdose at the notorious Viper Room. The Helter Skelter tour, meanwhile, zeroes in on the Manson family murders, re-imagining the lives of both the killers and victims. Others explore the ghosts and ghouls that haunt Hollywood and the agents who would kill to represent them.
