Los Angeles and Beverly Hills Real Estate Tour

A big part of our job at Glitterati Tours is keeping up to date on real estate.  It’s a must for our wildly popular celebrity homes tours as well as our “Underbelly LA” scandals tour.  Our research delves into the history of particular homes, their well-known owners, and the listing and selling prices. But, we can’t possibly know the ins and outs of every aspect of the ever-changing real estate market for potential buyers interested in purchasing homes in the general Los Angeles area. Because of this, we’ve teamed up with a professional real estate agent name Frank Andriolo.  He works with Sotheby’s, which is one of the most respected and prestigious real estate companies in the country.  Frank has

Vintage Vibe Festival Los Angeles

While Los Angeles is a city full of trends, there are certain things that never go out of style – and ironically right now, trendy meets the past with the current wave of vintage obsessions. Whether in media with shows like “Stranger Things,” music, or clothing, people love their vintage and love bragging about the diamonds in the rough they found digging through a second-hand store. The love of vintage doesn’t stop with film and clothes though.  Vintage games, and even drink recipes are popping up all over Los Angeles (and let’s be real, the world). L.A. finally found a way to bring all of this vintage love together by putting together something else the city loves: a festival! This

CELEBRITY HOMES TOURS AND SIGHTINGS IN BEVERLY HILLS AND HOLLYWOOD _______________________________________ When traveling to different cities and countries, everyone has their own personal bucket list to check off.  In Italy, it may be the canals of Venice, that leaning tower in Pisa, the statue of David, the Coliseum, or dining on great pizza and wine…among 1000’s of other amazing experiences and venues throughout the country. We’re in Los Angeles, and so much of what we do focuses around the celebrity history that helped build our city. It could be the legendary studios where they worked, the homes where they lived, the places they frequent for partying and dining, the locations they died, and ultimately—the places where they are laid to rest.

Los Angeles Summer Things to Do

Los Angeles Summer Things to Do, Including the Areas of Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica ________________ In just about a week when we hit the U.S. holiday of Memorial Day, summer officially starts in the minds of many.  Temperatures will start to rise, and everyone will seek the comfort of pools, dips in the ocean, outdoor restaurants with a cross-breeze, and air-conditioning. Summer temps in Los Angeles usually hover around the 80’s or 90’s, but we typically get short term heatwaves in July, August and September that could hit about 105F (41C).  At least it’s normally a dry heat with very low humidity, unlike places such as Hawaii, Florida or New York, where you can dry off from a
