Tour Companies in Los Angeles: Open top versus enclosed vehicles

If you’ve ever been to Los Angeles, particularly the Hollywood area, you’ll see dozens of open top vans and buses used for sightseeing tours.  In the summertime, there are literally hundreds of them making their way down the Sunset Strip.  Some guests love them, while others don’t like being exposed to the elements.  While they do provide incredible views, you’ll often see visitors draped in blankets in the winter or lathered in sunscreen in the summer.  At Glitterati Tours, we only use enclosed SUV’s and luxury custom vans for our private Los Angeles tours.  We feel, and our guests agree, that this is truly the most comfortable and discreet way to tour Hollywood and Beverly Hills.
