One of the best to enjoy? Cinespia at Hollywood Forever Cemetery.

Visit the Friendly Cities of L.A. and Beverly Hills

Visit the friendly cities of L.A. and Beverly Hills! Certainly, this has been one of the oddest summer holiday travel seasons on record for Los Angeles.  We’ve been in the business as Glitterati Tours for just over a decade, and in the industry for closer to 20 years.  Not since the early 90’s with the riots in L.A., the much-televised O.J. Simpson trial, and the Northridge earthquake, have we seen such an impact on tourism in the city. Normally, we’d be sold out every single day during July and August, however, this 2019 is very hit and miss.  Some days tours trickle in, and other days we turn down about a dozen tours. We’ve heard from hotels, car rental companies, and

Don’t worry. Remember it’s “surreality” so no YouTuber is harmed in real life. But you can see some of the most
