We took the "Essential Los Angeles" Tour and had David as our driver. He was quite simply fantastic, as was the tour itself. We were picked up on time as promised and never felt rushed at all. I won't list all of the stops and places we saw as they are listed on Glitterati's website. David did offer to stop... More

As part of a West Coast trip we had one full day in LA and wanted to make the most of our time. Having done private tours in cities before we knew that although more expensive than other tours getting a private arrangement is the best way to see everything and this tour was no exception. We booked the day... More

One day in L.A. to soak up the city? --- a private tour is the only way to go. We're honored you chose Glitterati Private Tours to make your short time here a special one. As you mentioned, it's the individual service that's near impossible on the larger group tours. I'm happy we found the fancy car you desired to... More

My husband and I took the Celebrity Homes Hills Tour with David and had a terrific time.

They can certainly be less expensive, but more often, customizable options are worth their weight in gold to... More
