The Perfect Time Of Year To Tour and Visit Los Angeles

   The weather this last month has been phenomenal in Los Angeles.  Sure, we’ve had a few days of rain, but otherwise we’ve had blue skies, and unbelievable views from the Hollywood Hills and Beverly Hills during our tours of Los Angeles.  It’s this time of year when one can see ships on the ocean outside Santa Monica from the vista point under the Hollywood Sign, or the entire San Fernando Valley, visible from the Mulholland Drive overlook above Universal Studios.  It’s days like this that the city sells itself and why we love showing off our home when guests visit Los Angeles.

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.

Sam Nazarian and his SBE Group have another amazing property in Los Angeles.  The Redbury Hotel opened recently near the corner of Hollywood and Vine.  Last night, I had a tour of this 57-room property from their general manager.  Super cool rooms!  I viewed a two-bedroom suite.  It had a kitchen, two bathrooms, a washer and dryer, hip décor and a phonograph player with a nice selection of vinyl records. All their rooms have a balcony, and this particular room had a view of the Hollywood Sign, The Walk of Fame, and Capitol Records.   Downstairs, they have their popular restaurant, Cleo.  Everything Nazarian touches turns to gold.  His group also has four Katsuya restaurants, Hyde Lounge, The SLS Hotel with
