Thanks for utilizing Glitterati Private Tours for your recent Los Angeles excursion. Timeliness, cleanliness, and customization are always perks one should expect from a private tour. We're glad you enjoyed our LA scandals tour. Unfortunately, especially on or around Sunset Boulevard, every corner has some sort of major scandal----so it's an easy tour to conduct with so many talking points!... More

Your review is appreciated here on TripAdvisor. We're happy you and your daughter got to experience the hot spots around our city. I just wish we could control our traffic, especially around LAX. It's one of the reasons our 405 Freeway was nicknamed "Carmageddon." Thanks again for taking your L.A. and Beverly Hills tour with Glitterati Private Tours, and for... More

Jimmy at Glitterati could not have been more helpful. My flight was cancelled not once but twice. Jimmy accommodated myself and my Daughter brilliantly with his driver called Colin who was brilliant. Service great. Car great and they even dropped us at our next destination at Shutters on the Beach! How is that for Service!

Back in 2012, my husband and I attempted to tour Beverly Hills star homes on our own. We basically spent 3 hours driving around, getting lost and not seeing much of anything On this trip we had our three children - ages 9-14-15 with us - we booked the 2 hour "just the hills tour" to see the stars homes...

You covered all the benefits of a private tour of the celebrity homes vs. trying it on one's own or taking a bus / van tour. From the days of Pickford and Fairbanks, visitors have been fascinated with the area surrounding Beverly Hills and its celebrity stock. Star maps are sold all over the city. Some can be outdated or... More

Let me just state from the outset, the tours that Glitterati conducts are OUTSTANDING. As I told the owner, Jimmy, if there were any water in LA, they would be walking on it. (Really sorry about the water problem though; feel so sorry for those folks.) I dealt with Jimmy to arrange all my tour sights in advance. Given I... More

Awesome review. Thank you so much! Such a large part of our service for visitors to Los Angeles, is making sure they have as many options as possible when travel planning and booking tours.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
