BOLD SUMMER in Beverly Hills

Yes, the daytime highs have been taking their toll.  Most days so far in July and August have been in the high 80’s, 90’s, and even some have topped out at over a 100.  However, there’s few things better than summer nights in Los Angeles. Once that sun dips down over the Santa Monica Mountain Range and drops lower on the horizon in the Pacific Ocean, it’s near perfect.  Plus, there’s no pesky bugs! One still has 2 more weeks to enjoy BOLD in Beverly Hills.  The annual event has businesses open with extended hours throughout the 90210.  Most of this event takes place on Rodeo Drive, but look for much more in the entire Golden Triangle of shopping and dining.

Summer Things to do in Los Angeles

There are countless summer things to do in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica.  It’s only April 23rd, and it actually feels like summer at a cozy 84 degrees.  Come July, August and September, look for spikes in heat up to 100F or 38C.  Keep this in mind when planning out your days.  If it helps, it’s usually a dry desert heat, as opposed to a humid sticky kind of hot. Here’s a handful of ideas, both inside and outside for summer things to do in Los Angeles: Take a Hike:  Yes, this can be done in summer.  It’s actually a very popular time to take in the outdoors.  Just bring plenty of water, and sunscreen…and keep you eyes

Summer Tours in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills

Summer tours in Los Angeles are up and running.  This year, the season started early with a blockbuster June, and it’s continued right through July.  The busiest period will actually be coming up within the next week and continue through August and into the first week of September when many holidays end here in the U.S.  That being said, we can’t stress enough to book summer tours in Los Angeles prior to arrival. Just this week alone, Glitterati Tours was fully booked up 5 out of the 7 days.  This is fantastic for us, but unfortunate for the dozens of guests looking for a last-minute private tour of Beverly Hills and L.A. Not sure if a private tour is right

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

Booking Los Angeles and Beverly Hills Tours For Summer

We remind guests all the time to book Los Angeles and Beverly Hills tours early, and prior to getting to our city.  Typically, June can be a little slower before the rush of July and August summer vacationers, but not this year.  We exit June with a full calendar–it’s been pretty solid for the last 3 weeks.  We’ve seen guests from India, the U.K., Australia, Sweden, Belgium, Brazil, Spain, Nigeria, China, Japan, Russia, and of course the United States, taking advantage of our slightly cooler (June Gloom) temperatures. We are a smaller Los Angeles private tour company, and intend to keep it that way.  We can focus on what we do best, and specialize in the details that make Glitterati
