Can't say enough great things about this tour company! Jimmy was more than helpful getting everything arranged for our tour of 7 and even offered many helpful suggestions for our trip to LA. David, our tour guide, was wonderful! He was knowledgeable, patient, professional and friendly. We would request him again if we come back to tour again. The vehicle... 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. A private tour can certainly be costlier than a group tour, so we take pride in advising guests how to get the biggest bang for their... More

Our guide, David Bauman, picked us up right on time at our hotel. It truly was a private tour for the three of us. His sparkling clean black SUV rolled through the Hollywood Hills and Beverly Hills for three hours, just like one of the neighbors! He pulled right in front of the homes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Keanu Reeves, Johnny... More

Your kind review shares that a private tour of Los Angeles allows guests to fully customize their time, and should have something for everyone. By mentioning that Glitterati Private Tours touched off on the current, as well as the gone-but-not-forgotten stars of yesterday, you proved this point perfectly. I'm so happy you and your mother enjoyed your tour and found... More

My wife and her entire family are LA and Orange County natives, but I wanted to show them parts of LA that they have never seen that would blow their minds (I'm the only one not from LA).

If you are heading towards Los Angeles either for a holiday or have a few hours to spare between flights then may I suggest you fill this time wisely and book yourself a tour of LA.

My 13yo daughter and I had a 2 hour tour of stars/celebrity homes. This was by far the best tour we've ever experienced. Our tour guide Dave was knowledgeable and a great host ! We were able to request particular stars my daughter was interested in-- it was awesome! I can't rave enough. Thank you !!!

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.
