“So Good & not cheesy like so many...”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

Wife and I did the "Essential LA" tour on our first day in town and couldn't have had a better time. Fantastic, informative & informal. They even tweaked our route to suit a few of our requests. Them having Ipad on board is a big plus so you can "see behind the gates". Driver (40+ years in LA) had great ideas on where to eat / go out based on our preferences.

We appreciate the review and are so happy that you and your wife chose Glitterati Private Tours of Beverly Hills to showcase the city of Los Angeles. As natives, or longtime locals, the guides at Glitterati Tours have had the pleasure of dining at most of the restaurants in town, or exploring the many gems, and we always enjoy recommending our favorites to our VIP's. Thanks again, and we're thrilled you enjoyed the city!

“And the Oscar Goes To "Glitterati" ABSOLUTELY THE BEST”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Wow! Glitterati Private Tours can and will make your dreams come true! I mean you are in tinsel town where everyone knows a star, is a star, and the Glitterati has first hand knowledge on the history, the hype, the IT places, and the IT people, and they know a shortcut to ANY desired location. Jimmy wowed us from the moment he pulled up in his spotless Denali. We had the best time with this very professional, knowledgable, jovial, and a man of many voices...he made the Tour make sense along with sharing stories as we passed each landmark. Jimmy is also a wonderful photographer and really cares about his customers. THIS IS THE TOUR YOU NEED TO BOOK, in just a few hours you will be so enlightened by their knowledge and ability to share it all while you have a front row seat. I will be back for another tour this time with my mom, she loves old Hollywood and I know Glitterati will be the BEST choice. Look no further, you found the perfect tour company, NO MORE HESITATION GO AHEAD AND BOOK,,,the memories and pics will stay with you a lifetime! Jimmy thank you thank you thank you, these South Floridians learned so much from you, your personality, your expressions, timing, inside knowledge and track, you gave us a tour of a lifetime, we are forever greatful and appreciative. We used Glitterati and are better for it!

Award season is officially over in Los Angeles, but we appreciate the special statuette you've awarded to Glitterati Tours. Thanks also for the shout out regarding my other "artistic" skills. We all wear many different hats, for Los Angeles is such a creative city. It helps explain why we're so passionate about showing it off to visitors. Such a pleasure meeting the two of you, and I look forward to meeting your mother in the near future for our Golden Age of Hollywood tour around Los Angeles and Beverly Hills. All the best, and continued safe travels!

“Great way to see LA”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

At first glance you may think this is quite a bit of money. Not so when you can customize the trip and see what you and your group are most interested in. Jimmy is the contact when you email and he should really be named the Ambassador of LA. He does a great job of welcoming you to the city before you even leave home and he ensures all goes smoothly with your planned excursion. This was a highlight to our trip of to LA and we highly recommend that if you want a guaranteed tour, no gimmicks, take this one. Fabulous!!

I'll gladly add "ambassador of Los Angeles" to my other unofficial title, "mayor of West Hollywood" that was pegged to me by a group of colleagues. I'm very happy I got to meet you both briefly before your tour with one of the amazing Glitterati guides. You said it well concerning the cost of our tours of Los Angeles & Beverly Hills -- certainly more expensive than the group tours offered around Hollywood -- but a value for the traveler that wants to customize their time, and enjoy a private vehicle. We hope you soaked up a bunch of our California sun before heading back to Canada! Thanks so much for leaving your Trip Advisor review of our tour company.

“Private tour of Hollywood and surrounding area”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

My wife and I had limited time in LA before our flight and wanted to tour the Hollywood area. We contacted many companies prior to this and tried to fit in with their itineraries without success. When I spoke to Jimmy it became obvious that he would do everything to accommodate our wishes in a really pleasant, helpful and professional manner.
David our driver arrived at the hotel on time in a spotless modern car and provided us with an individually tailored tour to meet our needs. He was so informative and personable that we left with a wealth of knowledge and information and saw far more of the area than we ever dreamed of. The personal service didn't end there, we received a phone call in our hotel room prior to the pick up to welcome us to LA and confirm our driver would meet us at the alloted time and also an email to welcome us home. A very professional company throughout - Well done.

“Tour company in Beverly Hills gets our A+ rating!”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

We called several tour companies in Los Angeles for our Beverly Hills and Hollywood excursion. From the minute Jim picked up the phone for our reservation, we knew we found the right tour company. His tone was pleasant, courteous, and never once did we feel we were getting the "pitch." In fact, my wife read the website wrong and was ready to book a 4 hour tour. Jim advised that the tour was actually only 3 hours. Love that honesty! We had a great guide that tailored the tour to our family's different requests. The guide left us with a fantastic first impression of LA. Wonderful job Glitterati, and we'll definitely be recommending the outstanding service you provide. Thanks, James and family.

We appreciate the kind words and the glowing review here on Trip Advisor. Thanks for choosing Glitterati Tours for your recent Los Angeles and Beverly Hills tour. As mentioned before, travelers often take risks in booking with a company that is foreign to them. From the emails, to the phone calls, to the tour itself, we want guests to feel confident and secure that they're dealing with a tour company that believes in great customer service and integrity. It's the foundation of our success. Happy future travels, and thanks again for putting your faith into our services.
