Hollywood Walk of Fame Upcoming Ceremonies

We often say celebrity sightings in Hollywood and Beverly Hills can be very hit and miss.  Some may see a dozen A-listers within 5 hours of being in our city, while others could be here a week and not see a single celeb.  A guaranteed celebrity sighting is always at the Hollywood Walk of Fame upcoming ceremonies.  Not only do you get the recipient of this honor, but you also get the many movie and TV stars showing up to honor the Walk of Fame recipient. Here’s a HUGE upcoming ceremony: Thursday, January 19th, 2017 Producer/ Directer Brett Ratner will receive the 2,599th star on the Walk of Fame, at 1130AM in the Motion Pictures category at 6801 Hollywood Boulevard

L.A. Tours Departing from Anaheim and Long Beach

*For a brief period Glitterati Tours offered pickups and drop offs in areas like Anaheim and Long Beach.  We suspended Anaheim and Long Beach service as of September 1st, 2015.  See Below. From our Glitterati Tours FAQ page: *Glitterati Tours restricts their pick up areas to Beverly Hills, Hollywood/West Hollywood, Downtown L.A. and LAX. We can also pick up at locations in Venice Beach and Santa Monica. We never travel outside of these areas due to the unpredictability of freeway traffic. Rather than pay hourly tour rates, it’s much more economical for a visitor to take alternative transportation into the heart of Hollywood to start their tour. Plus, there’s very few talking points along the freeway system between Los Angeles

Hollywood Hills and Celebrity Homes Tours

We Angelenos sometimes take our hills and mountains for granted.  It’s when visitors taking a tour of Los Angeles comment on their beauty that we’re reminded that we live in a truly unique city.  Los Angeles is basically cut in half by The Santa Monica Mountain Range.  It stretches from the coast along Malibu, and winds down through exclusive communities like Santa Monica, Pacific Palisades, Brentwood, Bel Air, Beverly Hills and into Hollywood. It’s this spectacular range that includes the famous Hollywood Hills.  It’s prime real estate that affords its residents outstanding views of the city.  Neighborhoods and canyons that make up this area include, Laurel Canyon, Beachwood, Hollywoodland, Outpost and Whitley Heights.  (If one takes a hike in Runyon
