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

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

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,
