Now Offering Private Tours of Hollywood and Beverly Hills

Like most businesses temporarily shuttered due to Covid-19, Glitterati Tours is excited to resume operations.  For us, the changes won’t be that dramatic, for we’ve always detailed each and every vehicle for our private sightseeing excursions of Hollywood, Los Angeles and Beverly Hills. However, we will follow additional guidelines in making sure our SUV’s are completely sanitized to protect you and your family or friends. This will include everything from the seats, door handles, and arm rests…to controls and lap belts.  Furthermore, your guide will be required to wear a mask at all times. We will provide each guest with a personal cellophane bag containing a mask, a mini hand sanitizer, snacks and water. Remember, this is not a bus

Tours of Hollywood and Beverly Hills

Gosh.  We really hoped to have more to say at this point, but Al Pacino said it best in The Godfather with, “Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.” We keep (wishfully) thinking that we will be past COVID-19 by a specific date, but the calendar keeps rolling by with more cases and more closures. Just today, California reached a milestone in cases.  Some may say we’re shooting ourselves (and local businesses) in the foot, by repeating information.  Better that than having our beloved tourism market suffer further by promoting anything other than the numbers presented by local and state authorities.  There are no conspiracy theories here.  Instead, tens of thousands of amazing hard-working individuals

The Safest Tours in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills

Here we go again. All dressed up and nowhere to go!?  That’s our current position as a small business here in Los Angeles.  We’ve pushed our start date back a half dozen times due to the uncertainty of Covid-19…April 1st, May 1st, June 1st, July 1st, July 12th, to the absolute unknown date down the line. Just today, the California governor re-ordered the closure of many businesses.  Some of these had lifted restrictions for a short period of time.  The following will be closed in 30 counties around California, which covers about 80% of the population: -Bars, Movie Theaters, Gyms, Barbershops, Nail Salons, Zoos, Museums, Cardrooms, Family Entertainment Centers, Malls, and Indoor Dining at Restaurants (restaurants with outdoor patios will

An Update on Los Angeles Tourism

Somewhat of a misleading headline, because there isn’t too much by way of an official “getting back to business” date.  However, do know that the cities of Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica and West Hollywood are ready to go the minute they get the okay from state/federal health departments and local government. We’ve been in constant contact with the best in the hospitality industry.  This includes other tour operators, restaurants, hotel concierges (members of the prestigious Le Clef D’or), sports franchises, representatives from theme parks and museums, and others.  Bottomline, none of us are going anywhere, and we’re doubling down on providing the best in customer service and experiences.  Yes, some things will certainly be different when venues re-open.

A Love Letter to Los Angeles and Beverly Hills

A Love Letter to Los Angeles and Beverly Hills Of course, this is actually sending love to the entire world right now during these unprecedented times.  It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and sadly, we all won the lottery. Tourism in Los Angeles has taken a hit several times in recent years, whether it’s the nearby fires, flight bans, or an earthquake or two.  But there’s never been anything quite like CoVID-19.  Hospitality industries have taken the early brunt of this, whether you work with airlines, travel agencies, tourism, nightclubs, hotels, music venues, restaurants, or bars.  But truly, it has trickled down to each and every one of us. Hats off to those still working in deliveries, the medical field (nurses should
