Exciting day with Peter who swooped into Lowes and off we drove to the Hollywood sign up and around the different celebrity homes.

We wanted a good feel for LA so we did the 3hr tour with our driver Dan. He was very personable and was very knowledgeable about the area. He showed us a few celeb homes and we even saw Mathew Perry. Lots of fun. Highly recommend!

Forget the tours from Hollywood blv in the open air bus these guys do a great personalised experience. We did Hollywood sign, and Hollywood hills scandals. (Includes some celebrity homes) Being in an SUV (with water and snacks provided) you can get to places other tours can't go. Our guide was knowledgable and we had a 2nd guide in training... More

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!

Truly, the Golden Age of Hollywood is one of Glitterati Tours favorite tours to conduct. So many names nowadays come and go, but names like Crawford, Davis, Pickford, Chaplin, and Fairbanks really built our city, and they never go away.

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.

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

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.

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.
