Private L.A. Tours Departing from LAX or Hotels

When guests inquire about private L.A. tours, they always ask whether their guide can pick them up at their local hotel.  The answer is YES!  Because every tour we do is private, Glitterati Tours can pick up guests anywhere in Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, Venice Beach, or Downtown L.A.  We also have been granted special permission to pick up guests directly at their terminal at LAX Los Angeles International Airport. We remind guests that pickups outside of the general vicinity of Hollywood/Beverly Hills can add approximately 1-hour to their tour time.  We’ve laid out 2 time tables on the Glitterati Tours “Rates” page on our website.   This would include the beach communities of Santa Monica & Venice,

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
