Booked a tour focusing on Old Hollywood for my mother who just celebrated her 80th bday. Covered so much territory and appreciated having special requests incorporated. David was our tour guide and was a virtual encyclopedia of information as well as the consummate professional and expert driver. One of the highlights of our trip!

Our tour guide was David. Loved him. So knowledgeable of the area. We could never have seen all the areas we saw by ourselves. Car was first class. They provided water and snacks. Really enjoyed it. A little pricey for a girl from the Midwest...$149 per hour, but we thought it was a good value for our money, considering all... More

For a first-time (or only time) visitor, a private tour truly is the best way to get a wonderful perspective of the massively laid-out Los Angeles. We've perfected tours of L.A. that can showcase the must-see sights in Hollywood and Beverly Hills in a short timeframe, and also specialize in customizing special interests along the way. Our price-point may not... More

If you're looking for a tour of the iconic sights in Beverly Hills and Hollywood, Glitterati Tours is the only way to go.

We booked a 2hr private tour in an SUV. The tour guide was so knowledgeable and took us to all the best spots (minus the hoards of tourists!). He picked us up from our hotel and dropped us off to go shopping afterwards. First class service would highly recommend.

While it's nearly impossible to avoid the throngs of tourists at popular spots like Rodeo Drive, Griffith Park Observatory and Grauman's Chinese Theater, we pride ourselves on knowing the best spots off the beaten path during our private custom Los Angeles tours. We feel that we have the perfect combination of must-see sights as well as local favorites. After all,... More

Tod picked us up for our private 3 hour tour in a neat suv packed with water bottles and snacks. He was very knowledgeable with LA's history and answered all our questions. Tod was cool, well cultured and respectful. Highly recommend this company (especially Tod)!

Wow. That was an awesome tour of Hollywood, Beverly Hills and the celebrity homes!!! We were picked up in a new, airconditioned SUV (important, as it was 100 deg F today) stacked with water and snacks, and then taken on a tour that was completely personalised for our family and what interested us! This is our first visit to LA,... More

Because of the size of L.A., a tour really is the best way to hit the ground running in our city and get one's bearings. Also, for a visitor not familiar with our Hollywood Hills, Beverly Hills and Bel Air, driving and navigating can be tough. Our late September weather has been brutally warm, so our SUV's have been cranking... More

We were picked up from our hotel at the time requested by Tod. He arrived in a comfortable Lincoln Navigator SUV. There was water and snacks if you required them. Our tour was four hours which was enough to take in the city, from Downtown to Hollywood and Beverly Hills. The tour is quite expensive however we believe with the... More

We just finished a tour with Tod Macofsky, of Glitterati Tours. He was excellent! He was on time, very knowledgeable, professional, and very accommodating. We didn't have a lot of time in L.A., but with Tod, we have a good overview of L.A., Hollywood, and the beaches! A & L from Alabama

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
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.
