Our hotel (L'Ermitage Beverly Hills) recommended this group highly. And they did not disappoint! We were greeted by our tour guide Brian in the lobby of the hotel, and he made us feel comfortable and welcomed immediately. He was friendly, fun and knowledgeable. We booked the Glitterati group for a morning excursion one day and an afternoon excursion the next... More

Jimmy did a great job! We where lucking to get him since he had a cancellation the day after July 4. We booked about a 2.5 hour tour to hit the high spots of W. Hollywood and Beverly Hills. Jimmy showed up on time and even had special cup cakes for the kids. Vehicle was great...clean and he kept the... More

Thanks for your review. We work with a phenomenal group on concierges in L.A., but for those without a concierge desk at their hotel or for guests during a very short stay, we become concierges on wheels! It's our job to keep up on the hottest spots and the best dining experiences that L.A. has to offer. We really hope... More

We booked a VERY last minute tour with Jimmy and truly lucked out that he had a cancelation on the morning of July 5th. We only had a half day slot but Jimmy made the most of every minute and I felt we saw more in that 4 hours than we would have seen on our own all weekend. We... More

Jimmy was fantastic and very knowledgeable on the specific areas we wanted to see, West Hollywood, Hills, Beverly Hills. Had a great 4 hour tour in his black SUV so were up high and could see everything. Thanks for the memories and hope to see you in Noosa one day. Kathy, Kris & Belle xxx

One of the best things about providing tours is getting to meet visitors from around the world. We get to introduce our guests to our city, and in return, we learn a little bit about their city/state/country. Noosa looks amazing! It's now on my radar for when I visit Australia. Thanks so much for utilizing our services, and for the... More

We returned to LA for a second time, we had taken the tour with Frank the first time and our experience was more than we could have dreamed. This year we had Bryan, and had just as wonderful of an experience! Thank you for the In-and-out burger, you were absolutely right about it!

Thanks for your review here on TripAdvisor for Glitterati Private Tours of Los Angeles. There are two really great reasons to tour L.A. and you mentioned one of them: SHORT ON TIME --- for years, Los Angeles was thought of as a layover city, with most guests never venturing out of LAX.

David was a wonderful tour guide. His knowledge and the iPad to show pictures was a great combination. The touring vehicle (Tahoe or Yukon I think) was clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting a nice overview of the ritz of Hollywood, Beverly Hills etc.
