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.
