Book Your Los Angeles and Beverly Hills Tours Now for Summer

Glitterati Tours just finished up a record breaking Spring Break for Beverly Hills tours and private excursions around Los Angeles.  As a smaller tour company with a #1 rating on TripAdvisor for Activities and Tours, we were swamped with requests.  There was many days in March that we weren’t able to accommodate the large number of last minute requests for private Beverly Hills tours.  A reminder that we work not only with guest referrals, but also VIP agents, travel agents, and of course, our LACA (Los Angeles Concierge Association).  Quite a few bookings come from these 5-star hotels throughout Hollywood, West Hollywood and Beverly Hills, as well as several beach properties down in Santa Monica. While this post is somewhat

What and Where is Hancock Park, Los Angeles

Most people only hear about Hancock Park because of President Obama’s frequent trips to this extremely affluent community.  As Obama lands today in L.A. to tape The Ellen Show, his motorcade will then make its way over the hill (we’re hoping he takes the Marine One helicopter and lands it at The Wilshire Country Club) and off to producer Danny Rose’s party for a fundraiser. Danny Rose is the Executive Producer for the TV show “Scorpion.”   Even John Legend is expected to perform. In the past, Obama has been to this same neighborhood for a party thrown by Shonda Rhimes (producer of Gray’s Anatomy, and Scandal), John Wells (producer of E.R. and West Wing), and the home of the

Super Bowl Sunday in Los Angeles

For many international guests, Super Bowl Sunday is as foreign as a championship cricket game is to Americans.  Super Bowl Sunday really is a national holiday.  We eat and drink so much on this day, that it can easily compare to our Thanksgiving…only not as healthy.  We indulge on beer, pizza, chicken wings, potato chips and shots of booze. We high-five, gamble, scream, tailgate, and barbecue, as two teams take to the field. This year, the Carolina Panthers will take on the Denver Broncos in Santa Clara, California at the Levi’s Stadium.  British group, Coldplay, will headline the half-time show, with expected appearances with Beyonce and Bruno Mars.  The anticipated commercials will be dominated by Budweiser and Doritos.
