Booking Los Angeles and Beverly Hills Tours For Summer

We remind guests all the time to book Los Angeles and Beverly Hills tours early, and prior to getting to our city.  Typically, June can be a little slower before the rush of July and August summer vacationers, but not this year.  We exit June with a full calendar–it’s been pretty solid for the last 3 weeks.  We’ve seen guests from India, the U.K., Australia, Sweden, Belgium, Brazil, Spain, Nigeria, China, Japan, Russia, and of course the United States, taking advantage of our slightly cooler (June Gloom) temperatures. We are a smaller Los Angeles private tour company, and intend to keep it that way.  We can focus on what we do best, and specialize in the details that make Glitterati
