Hollywood Forever Cemetery is one of the most celebrated and intriguing locales in Los Angeles. For the past ten years, historic tour guide Karie Bible has been giving official walking tours of the property. This tour has been one of the city’s best kept secrets–until now. The two-hour tour evokes the storied past and navigates the labyrinth of the present as it highlights the various historic tales, scandals and mysteries that remain a part of Hollywood lore.
Come visit legendary notables such as Cecil B. Demille, Marion Davies, Tyrone Power, Rudolph Valentino, Vampira, John Huston, Carl “Alfalfa” Switzer, William Desmond Taylor and more. The tour has been featured on Turner Classic Movies, CNN, The Reelz Channel, Los Angeles Magazine and named “Best of LA” by the LA Weekly.
