Summer Tours in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills

LAX Los Angeles Tour Departures During Busy Holiday Periods

Glitterati Tours is thrilled to be one of the few private charter tour companies with LAX Los Angeles tour access.  Our access to pickup guests at LAX requires special permits and a security clearance via transponders on all of our vehicles.
