Celebrity Sightings in Hollywood and Beverly Hills

It’s Los Angeles after all, so we get asked all the time where are the best celebrity sighting locations in Hollywood and Beverly Hills?!  Our solid answer is EVERYWHERE. Just about everyday during our celebrity homes tours of Beverly Hills and Bel Air, our guides are able to point out celebrities driving, walking the dog, and collecting their mail…just like everyone else.  As always, we never publish these sightings for anyone at or near their homes. However, we’re happy to discuss any celebrity that’s in a public place (other than a hotel we work with which thrives on privacy), that can include restaurants, bars, nightclubs, movie theaters, house parties, dry cleaners, etc. Is it an invasion of privacy?   Good

There are countless summer things to do in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica.  It’s only April 23rd, and it actually feels like summer at a cozy 84 degrees.  Come July, August and September, look for spikes in heat up to 100F or 38C.  Keep this in mind when planning out your days.  If it helps, it’s usually a dry desert heat, as opposed to a humid sticky kind of hot.

Book Your Los Angeles Summer Vacations Now

It’s that time of year when Glitterati Tours reminds potential visitors to book their Los Angeles summer vacations NOW! As mentioned in previous posts, tourism across the United States, as of now, is very hard to predict.  Analysts have noted noticeable cancelations or a slow-down in pre-bookings from some of our biggest markets, including Canada, the United Kingdom, and Australia.  In some cases, this also coincides with a strong dollar, with other world-wide destinations offering up a bigger bang for the buck for travelers. There’s no way to know what summer will bring? It has certainly been an erratic calendar since November.  Even this last month, we had the opposite in scheduling as March came in like a lamb and

Oscar Parties in Hollywood and Beverly Hills

It’s that time of year when actors and actresses survive on a lima bean per day to look their best for the Academy Awards and the many Oscar parties in Hollywood and Beverly Hills.  The actual ceremony is on Sunday, February 26, 2017, but look for events all week long. Slim to none, you’ll get close to your favorite stars on Hollywood Blvd, as seating in the bleachers for the red carpet arrivals is already maxed out with their online lottery to fill approximately 700 seats. Security is extremely tight in the general area of the Dolby Theatre, with road closures blocks away on each side of the venue.  Because the Governors Ball takes place just above the Dolby, this
