It has barely been a week since Whitney Houston passed away, but the singer has already been added to a rather unsavoury 'Dearly Departed' tour. The 2.5-hour tour costs $40 and includes guides discussing the circumstances of the deaths, while tourists sit in the 'Tomb Buggy'.

Tasteless? Voyeuristic? You tell us. Here are some of the 'sights' you can expect on the tour.

Whitney Houston passed away at The Beverly Hilton in Hollywood on 11 February, and was found in her bathtub. The Daily Mail quotes Dearly Departed's owner, Scott Michaels as saying: "When (Houston's) 911 call becomes available, we'll use that. When people hear audio in such cases, it jars them into recognition that these are genuine individuals."topThis field has been disabled for Gallery V2Whitney Houston and the Beverly Hilton hotel(©Mark Sayles_AP Images)Whitney Houston and the Beverly Hilton hotel(©Mark Sayles_AP Images)Whitney Houston and the Beverly Hilton hotel(©Mark Sayles_AP Images)Whitney Houston and the Beverly Hilton hotel(©Mark Sayles_AP Images)Whitney Houston and the Beverly Hilton hotel(©Mark Sayles_AP Images)Whitney Houston and the Beverly Hilton hotel(©Mark Sayles_AP Images)Whitney Houston and the Beverly Hilton hotel(©Mark Sayles_AP Images)Whitney Houston and the Beverly Hilton hotel(©Mark Sayles_AP Images)Whitney Houston and the Beverly Hilton hotel(©Mark Sayles_AP Images)Whitney Houston and the Beverly Hilton hotel(©Mark Sayles_AP Images)Whitney Houston and the Beverly Hilton hotel(©Mark Sayles_AP Images)Whitney Houston and the Beverly Hilton hotel(©Mark Sayles_AP Images)Whitney Houston and the Beverly Hilton hotel(©Mark Sayles_AP Images)Whitney Houston and the Beverly Hilton hotel(©Mark Sayles_AP Images)Whitney Houston and the Beverly Hilton hotel(©Mark Sayles_AP Images)Michael Jackson's house in North Carolwood DriveMichael Jackson passed away from an overdose of propofol on 25 June 2009.
