Glitterati Booking Now For Summer Tours of L.A.

We all are taking a sigh of relief having completed a very busy Spring Break conducting tours of L.A. and Beverly Hills.  We will now stay moderately busy through May and June, and then the flood gates will open with visitors during July and August.  Every year at this time, we remind any potential visitor coming to Los Angeles, to book their hotels, private tours, museums, shows, rental vehicles and dinners way in advance.  It’s great to be spontaneous, but one really wants to take advantage of all that Los Angeles has to offer.  Look into calendars now for The Hollywood Bowl.  Especially around the 4th of July for their fireworks spectacular after their headliner.  Also, check out The Pantages Theatre, Greek Theater, The Forum, Staples Center, and The Hollywood Palladium, for events during your stay.

And whether it’s with Glitterati Tours or another private tour company, book your tours of L.A. weeks or months in advance.  Even as a small company, there were many days last summer when we turned down dozen(s) of requests for last-minute tours.

The Guides from Glitterati Tours of L.A.

What should you book?  — We often suggest booking a city tour, like our “Essential LA” tour.  It covers the must-see sights in Hollywood, West Hollywood and Beverly Hills.  Been here before and seen the touristy stuff? — Look at our “Underbelly LA” tour or “Just the Hills,” which both cover the nitty gritty up in the hills of Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Bel Air.

Should you book a beach tour during July or August? —We have our “Coastal Access” tour which covers Santa Monica, Malibu and Venice Beach.  We like to be very upfront about expectations.  Any other time of the year, the answer would be yes.    Due to the overwhelming amount of visitors to this area in the summer though, we might suggest doing this on your own (self-guided).  This makes it a much more leisurely day, and one isn’t  paying hourly tour rates to sit in traffic — especially along Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu.  Once a guest can park their own vehicle or taxi to the Santa Monica area, so much is walkable.  One can stroll the Santa Monica Pier, The 3rd Street Promenade, and even walk or bike down to the eclectic Venice Beach.
