No city in the world has a more colorful and sordid history than Los Angeles, and nowhere else have so many famous (and infamous) icons met their maker. Gain insight into the darker side of Hollywood on this afternoon tour departing from Sunset Boulevard. This gruesome but entertaining excursion is popular with both visitors and locals, and inspired the ‘Eternal Darkness Tour’ episode on American Horror Story.

Your Director of Undertakings will guide you through decades' worth of death, murder and just plain fun. Once your tour, um . . . departs, hear tales of tinseltown tragedies in the cool comfort of your luxurious bus, aka the Tomb Buggy.

Cover more than 75 sites of interest in just 2.5 hours. While the itinerary may change from day to day, here are some of the places and juicy stories you can expect to encounter:

  • The last-breath locations of Michael Jackson, River Phoenix, Whitney Houston and Bela Lugosi

  • The murders of Rebecca Schaeffer, Sal Mineo, Dominique Dunne and Bugsy Siegel

  • The hotels where Janis Joplin and John Belushi ‘checked out’
  • The scene of Sharon Tate’s last supper
  • The scandals of Halle Berry, Chris Brown and Rihanna, and Hugh Grant
During the tour, you’re exposed to crime-scene photographs, 911 recordings and paperwork that the public-at-large normally don’t get to see about their favorite celebrities.

Visit a small cemetery where Marilyn Monroe, Natalie Wood, Farah Fawcett and other high-profile legends are buried. Walk through the stars’ final resting place and read their poignant and pithy epitaphs.

Your tour concludes back at the departure point. Spend some time browsing through the Dearly Departed Gallery. Check out unusual memorabilia connected to dead celebrities, including tiles from the pool where Rolling Stones drummer, Brian Jones, drowned, and Rock Hudson’s Rolodex listing Elizabeth Taylor’s phone number.

While you cruise the canals of Venice and along Santa Monica Beach, you choose if you want to pedal traditionally or use the electric power. It’s a bike tour with a twist that will allow you to see the best of Santa Monica and Venice Beach.

"WOW!" will likely be your first word when you turn on your electric bike during this bicycle tour of Santa Monica and Venice Beach. With the flick of a switch, you can turn your colorful Pedego beach cruiser into a more relaxing mode of transportation. It’s an alternative biking experience that allows you to see the best of Los Angeles, where you’ll want to be outside, enjoying the sunshine and warm temperatures, not touring in a car or bus.

From the comfortable seat of your bike, you’ll ride along Santa Monica's world-famous beach to the Marion Davies Guesthouse, past the Santa Monica Pier and through Venice to its picturesque canals. While you soak up the sun, sand, surf and ocean breezes, you'll be accompanied by a story-telling guide full of interesting information about the local art, architecture and history of the area.

The bike allows you to choose traditional pedaling with six gears or using the electric motor power (with the flick of your wrist), which puts the power completely in your control. Or use a combination of both. All bikes are equipped with state-of-the-art disc brakes, lithium ion batteries and a 500-watt motor to ensure that you’ll keep up with the group. Riders MUST be comfortable riding a bike!
