Hotel Pickups for Los Angeles and Beverly Hills Tours

The advantage of a private tour is the flexibility for the visitor.  Glitterati Tours can pick up guests directly at their hotel in the Beverly Hills, LAX, Hollywood, West Hollywood, Santa Monica, Venice Beach, or Downtown L.A. areas.  We can also pick you up after your local Hollywood or Beverly Hills experience, whether it’s Universal Studios, Warner Bros., a restaurant, or museum. We often get requests for pickups in Long Beach, Anaheim, Newport Beach and Pasadena, and unfortunately, these areas are just too far out (and with traffic, highly unpredictable) for us to accommodate transportation.  We remind potential guests that it’s far more economical to get alternative transportation into the heart of the city.  We’ve laid out more on this

Private Tour Company in Los Angeles Booking Now for March

While tourism is on an upswing overall in Los Angeles, it can still be feast or famine during certain times of the year for hotels, a private tour company, amusement parks and museums.  Typically February can be a bit quieter, for it’s award season, and most of the people in town are industry related preparing for their big night(s).  We can also see a bit of a lull in June before the summer crush of tourists, and in November before the holidays. We are coming up on a very busy season.  With daylight savings in early March and a staggered spring break, L.A. should be full of visitors throughout March and April.   In addition, we’ll see many folks from

Celebrity Sightings in Hollywood and Beverly Hills

Celebrity Sightings in West Hollywood and Beverly Hills During our private tours of Hollywood and Beverly Hills, most visitors ask if we actually see celebrities out and about.  Our response…. EVERYDAY!   More times than not, our guests catch a glimpse during our celebrity homes tour of their favorite celeb, walking, driving, exercising, riding a bike, eating at a cafe, etc. On our blog, we only report our celebrity sightings when they take place in a public space.  While we often see them at their homes, or in a medical office, pharmacy, a place of worship, or other expected private locations, we won’t put it in print. That being said, here’s a handful of recent Hollywood celebrity sightings: -Don Rickles,

TripAdvisor Guests Recommended Tour Company in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills

We thank our guests that have made us a highly recommended tour company in Los Angeles across the internet, including the amazing sites such as TripAdvisor and Yelp. Here’s just a few of the recent reviews: We only had a couple days in LA, and wanted to see the sights and leave the driving to someone else. Also we needed to get to our hotel in Santa Monica afterwards and couldn’t check in until 3pm, so this made real efficient use of our time and got our mini vacation going right away. After reading the reviews I contacted Glitterati Tours. I got a speedy reply followed with a phone conversation from Jimmie. He asked what things were important to us,

Tours of Hollywood and Beverly Hills Celebrity Homes

For decades, fans have been coming to Los Angeles to view Beverly Hills celebrity homes.  Even Lucille Ball did it on an episode of “I Love Lucy.”  One can find literally hundreds of Beverly Hills celebrity homes tours being offered up along Hollywood Boulevard.  Some seem better than others, but since we’ve never taken one of these open bus, limo, or van tours, we are unable to comment on their accuracy.  Often, and we see it during our tours, some drivers/guides pick the most visible homes and “tag” it to someone famous.  The unsuspecting visitor gets great photos of a visible home, but the information isn’t always correct.  They go home and show their family and friends an amazing photograph

Recent Celebrity Sightings in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills

We are perfectly centered in the Hollywood and Beverly Hills communities.  One of the main questions we get during our tours is “Do you really see celebrities during your tours?”  It can be very hit and miss, but when it rains, it pours!  As always, we respect the expected privacy of newsworthy individuals.  So while we do celebrity homes tours, we will never publish when we see celebrities at their homes or enjoying private time with their children.  That being said, some of our recent celebrity sightings in Los Angeles: Rob Dyrdek enjoying lunch at a sidewalk cafe at Sunset Plaza. Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman traveling towards Santa Monica Blvd. in their open top SUV. Lisa Vanderpump and Ken
