Showed us some Hollywood homes with internal shots on his iPad. His knowledge of the area was very extensive and really interesting pointing out locations used on my favourite... More

We only had one evening to see the sights in Beverly Hills and Hollywood, and Todd's tour was the perfect way to go. After a long flight from the East Coast, we were tired, but Todd picked us up at LAX and brought us to the perfect place for a snack (loved the blood orange lemonade) before the tour. Then,... More

Glitterati Tours is proud to be one of the few private tour companies with access to LAX for roundtrip sightseeing tours of our city. It can give a visitor a wonderful perspective of Los Angeles, Hollywood and Beverly Hills during their extended layovers or hotel ending destinations.

Due to only having a small amount of time in LA decided to book the whirlwind tour. Todd was a wonderful guide tailoring the tour to fit in with what we wanted to see without repeating what we'd already seen. Loved all the snippets of information that Todd had and his iPad pictures gave us another dimension. He was super... More

Thanks for your amazing review here on TripAdvisor and I'll be sure to share it with your L.A. tour guide Paul. We decided years ago that sticking with an all SUV fleet was the best way to tour Hollywood and Beverly Hills. There are many areas that forbid the larger buses and vans, and we thrive on providing customized tours... More

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.
