Looking for a Private Tour Company in Los Angeles?

Looking for a private tour company in Los Angeles? With the holidays over, and most locals back in town and back to work, there’s a few more cars on the streets, but famous landmarks are less-crowded.  January and February tend to be the slower tourism months in Los Angeles, before it all starts up again with Spring Break. This allows visitors a more relaxed environment when sightseeing, dining, and shopping.  We’ll start to see a staggered flow of increased business beginning the first few weeks in March, through the end of April. If you’re coming to Los Angeles for the first time, or never really had the opportunity to explore the area, let Glitterati Tours provide a first-class private sightseeing

Rose Bowl Welcomes Oregon and Wisconsin

Rose Bowl Welcomes Oregon and Wisconsin! On Wednesday, January 1st, the Oregon Ducks take on the Wisconsin Badgers at the 90K+ seat Rose Bowl in Pasadena.  Pre-game activities, including tailgating, start at 1PM. Of course this game takes place after the 131st Rose Parade takes their 5 ½ mile journey down Colorado Boulevard.  As always, look for marching bands, amazing floral floats, equestrian units, and celebrities.  This years Grand Marshal’s for the “Power of Hope” theme will be Rita Moreno, Gina Torres, and Laurie Hernandez. With hundreds of thousands of people lining the streets, avoid driving into the area.  Plus, parking will be a nightmare and very expensive.  Instead, look into the Metro Gold Line that can get you within

What Are The Most Popular Tours in Hollywood?

What are the most popular tours in Hollywood?  It really depends on what you’re looking to get out of the city.  Remember, L.A. is a gigantic spread out city and popular destinations can be separated by quite a distance.  Just in the radius around Hollywood, you’ve got Downtown L.A. to the east about ½ hour away, and Santa Monica to the west about 40 minutes away.  In between, you’ve got popular communities or cities like West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Century City and Westwood.  Once down at the beach in Santa Monica, you can travel south to Venice Beach, or north up the coast to Malibu. Before deciding on where you want to stay, truly pull up a map and look

New Beverly Cinema

NEW BEVERLY CINEMA For every film fan who likes to spend their Los Angeles trip visiting sites from their favorite films, The New Beverly Cinema may be your next stop.

Tucked into a small venue on Beverly Boulevard you will find The New Beverly Cinema. The theatre was built in the 1920’s and brings
