David our driver and guide was outstanding. SO fun, SO knowledgable. We booked Glitterati last while staying at the Montage (I was there for the People's choice awards with my daughter) - the first trip out was so fun (celeb houses, iPad pics of famous crime scenes to go along with the stories and the homes we were viewing which was fascinating) that we then booked them again to do the Hollywood sign, UCLA, Griffith Observatory and then out to Malibu. David is WONDERFUL and is just as fun and great with kids (my daughter is 10) as he is with adults. The SUV was also immaculate and well stocked with yummy snacks! Absolutely recommend!!!

Glitterati Tours appreciates the repeat business and for the extra kind review here on TripAdvisor for our Los Angeles tour company. We do believe we have something for everyone, and glad that we impressed your daughter as much as the visiting adults. That's just one of the many benefits with a smaller private SUV tour. Maybe we'll see you all a third time, but it sounds like you've now got the city fully covered! Continued safe travels. - J

I can only add my thanks to Jimmy and the team, in this case, Dave. My initial emails were answered promptly (the opposition failed by not responding to my email) and a follow up phone call cemented our tour, which we began almost fresh off the plane from Australia.
How's this for service: when I turned on my phone upon landing I was greeted with a text from Jimmy along the lines of: "I see you have landed a bit early. Please get in touch if you want to start earlier, otherwise we'll leave the arrangements as is"
I picked the tour after reading reviews here. We wanted to see LA and didn't want to drive or organise anything after a long flight. So into the SUV it was, for our customised tour.
Most things on the "to do" list for LA were covered. We also had a fun celebrity spotting at the end of a windy road where the usual type tour buses couldn't go. We were being shown the Ipad photographs of said celebrity in his car when, as if on cue, the exact same car drove past us and up to the front gate. A silly guilty pleasure.
The strangest things excited me: the cameras in hedges and trees, the small block of "San Francisco" type houses (you may have to ask), even the Hollywood sign.
We were dropped off at the Getty Museum at Jimmy's suggestion. What an amazing place. Thanks Jimmy and Dave. Jimmy had even left a map with his suggestions of the best places to go and things to do at the museum.
Overall a really wonderful experience and I cannot speak more highly of the service and tour. It goes without saying that the vehicle was spotless and Dave polite and helpful to a fault.
Don't hesitate people....do it!

We know we've done our job right when we can showcase the city to guests just coming off a long flight, especially from Australia! Your gusto is impressive. I appreciate all the kind words regarding our level of service and your review of the guide's commitment and passion. Plus, it's wonderful when our guests get to have an A-list celebrity sighting while taking a tour of Hollywood & Beverly Hills. It always adds credibility to the time and research we put into staying as current as possible on every aspect of showing off Los Angeles. Happy to hear the Getty didn't disappoint----it never does! All the best and continued safe travels.

We absolutely loved and enjoyed our tour of Beverly Hills on Friday! Dan, our tour guide, made it spectacular! We probably saw 50 stars homes! He was so knowledgeable and so funny, we felt like stars being driven around in a nice black SUV! We came all the way from Utah to see the city and for this tour and are beyond pleased! Also saw amazing views of LA from the hills! Was such a perfect day! Definitely recommended this tour company and ask for Dan! Well worth the money!!

Love it! Dan is awesome, and we're so happy that you enjoyed his tour of Beverly Hills celebrity homes in one of our luxury SUV's. We agree that a private tour is well worth the money, since our guests are welcome to fully customize their excursion. Thanks a million for your amazing review here on Viator/TripAdvisor for all of our future guests that may utilize this platform. We're grateful!

We spent the day touring LA, Santa Monica and Malibu with Brian. It was our first time to this area and Glitterati came HIGHLY recommended by our hotel concierge. Brian was promptly waiting for us at 9am to start our day off. We told him this was our first time in LA and we wanted to see more sights than "homes of the stars". He understood and took us on our way. We drove thru the Farmer's Market, some beautiful neighborhoods then on to the Walk of Stars and the surrounding area. We got out of the comfortable and fully-stocked SUV when we got to the Walk of Fame and meandered the streets for a couple of minutes. Then it was back into the vehicle and off to drive by Santa Monica Pier on the way to our outrageous lunch in Malibu. Glitterati gave us several choices for lunch stops and we picked Geoffrey's in Malibu. Brian dropped us off and returned promptly when we called him after our meal was finished. Brian was a delight with his humor, wit, knowledge of the area and even some historical facts accompanied by pictures on his iPad to describe what we were seeing. Our only regret is our fault. We didn't ask him to stop and let us out so that we could explore. The tour was mainly driving in an SUV and looking at everything. Luckily, we had one more day in LA so we went on our own back to the Farmer's Market and Santa Monica Pier. I would recommend Glitterati because of their vehicles and Brian's personality, but I would caution that you need to be in control of your tour and speak up if you want the driver to stop and wait while you expereince your surroundings. Again, this misunderstanding was our fault and not that of Brian's or the tour company.

We really appreciate your review here on TripAdvisor. Thanks for all the wonderful accolades regarding your guide, the vehicle, the promptness, and our overall level of service. Glitterati Tours works with many of the major hotels in Hollywood and Beverly Hills, and we're happy to hear that your concierge recommended our tour company. Your review will assist future potential guests in determining whether we're the perfect fit for their Los Angeles visit. Glitterati Private Tours reminds visitors that we're right in line with other private tour companies, and can be higher in price than the many group tours available in Hollywood. Also, because our tours are always private, guests are welcome to fully customize their time with extra stops, photo ops, etc. Thanks again, and continued safe travels!

Thrilled you reached out to Glitterati Tours for providing you and your family a private tour, and that we exceeded all expectations for your L.A. sightseeing. You truly get what you pay for on both ends of the spectrum. Because we realize we may not be for everyone, we're always the first to let guests know there's plenty of competition out there, especially along the tourist streets. At the same time, we do believe you get a much bigger bang for the buck when you are welcome to fully customize your time by your interests...in an air-conditioned luxury SUV with amenities! Thank you so much.

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, and Tod M (our driver) was professional, informative, and very knowledgeable. The iPad with additional background and photos was a great bonus. For me, it was so nice to be able to actually look at the sights instead of navigating and driving. Highly recommended.

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 up the air-conditioning, which makes a huge difference in closed vehicles, as opposed to an open-top tour van. We appreciate you recommending Glitterati Tours of Beverly Hills to future guests visiting our page here on TripAdvisor. Thank you!

From start to finish I could not have wished for a better tour for our party 2 adults and 2 girls (20yo) . From the absolute start Jimmy McGill and I shared a couple of emails about the tour , what , when , where and I could tell that this was already great customer service.
We booked the 3 hour Essentials LA tour with a pick up from the Getty Centre and a drop off at the Farmers Market - David was our driver and he was simple fantastic - he took us to a whole heap of celeb properties in Beverly Hills, Hollywood and the Burbs. What was great was that being in the SUV you could easily see so much more than the bigger buses and it was our choice where to go!. The SUV was fantastic - air conditioned with water and snacks for the tour and David had an IPAD with pictures of many of the houses we stopped by - essential when you only get to see the outside!.
David was highly knowledgeable about LA as well so was able to give us some history local details. We got to a excellent viewing spot for the Hollywood sign and we stopped off at the Hollywood Bowl for a photo opportunity.

You may think that the tour is expensive - Its not - think of it as your personal tour of LA.

We already have the Underbelly Tour in mind for our next visit.

I will say it again - GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE - GREAT TOUR !

I can remember responding to our 50th and 100th review here on TripAdvisor. Now, 150 reviews are another fantastic milestone for our L.A. tour company. We take pride in our level of customer service from the very first inquiry, until the end of the tour, as well as any follow ups requested by our guests. Our goal is to make sure everyone booking our private tours, is comfortable in their decision, and that our advice can help visitors get the most out of their stay. We mention it often --- there are many options here in Hollywood for tours, and we're happy you utilized our services, as well as sharing your review. We'll see you next time around for your scandals tour of Beverly Hills.

Yesterday we had a fantastic tour with Tod; we highly recommend him: he is extremely knowledgeable, warm and funny. Our tour was the Golden Age and we saw terrific sites from old Hollywood and environs to new Hollywood and environs. We've lived here for thirteen years and Tod showed us areas throughout Beverly Hills, the Sunset Strip, and Hollywood that we did not know about; it was very informative. We were joined by my sister and brother-in-law from the east cost. It was their last day in LA and it was a fantastic ending to their trip. Jimmy was extremely helpful in arranging this tour with one day's notice. This is a wonderful experience and highly recommended.

We would HIGHLY recommend Glitterati Tours. You definitely want to ask for Tod who was a great guide. He really knows LA. He intimately knows not just the easy to find sites but the neat, unmarked ones and their related stories (with an ipad to show interiors of many celebrity and historic homes we passed by). We saw so much in 4 hours and there is no way we could have done that all ourselves. Tod is also really nice and again just knows LA and the entertainment business so well to make it a perfect experience.....we could have kept going with him to see more! We would recommend Tod and Glitterati without any reservation and are so happy to have taken his tour!

We appreciate recommending our tour company, Glitterati Tours, for travelers coming to L.A. We're fortunate that all of our private tour guides are somehow related to the entertainment industry, so it's a plus for special insights into what we do in touring our amazing city. I've shared your wonderful review with Tod, and we're both so happy that you enjoyed your excursion and the city in general!

We booked a tour starting with a pick up from LAX. The traffic was slow even at noon on a weekday. We asked to see stars' homes. We visited , Hollywood Hills, Beverly Hills and Bel Air. We rode around Rodeo Drive and some hot spots noted for star sightings. The 3 hour tour was approx $500 including tax. A luxury amount, but personalized and convenient.

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 mentioning the convenience of a custom tour.
