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

L.A. Tours Departing from Anaheim and Long Beach

*For a brief period Glitterati Tours offered pickups and drop offs in areas like Anaheim and Long Beach.  We suspended Anaheim and Long Beach service as of September 1st, 2015.  See Below. From our Glitterati Tours FAQ page: *Glitterati Tours restricts their pick up areas to Beverly Hills, Hollywood/West Hollywood, Downtown L.A. and LAX. We can also pick up at locations in Venice Beach and Santa Monica. We never travel outside of these areas due to the unpredictability of freeway traffic. Rather than pay hourly tour rates, it’s much more economical for a visitor to take alternative transportation into the heart of Hollywood to start their tour. Plus, there’s very few talking points along the freeway system between Los Angeles
