Hollywood and LA aren't the safest areas, especially when traveling with children. Bryan was the perfect tour guide. He really paid attention to the children and what our needs were. Loved all the little tidbits of info he passed along. Worth the money.

This tour was awesome!!! We were able to see and do all the Hollywood highlights without having to worry with all the traffic or finding these locations. This is the second time we have used this company and especially this tour guide, Bryan!! He never rushed us or even interrupted us. His focus was on us the entire time. Very cool!

This is a DIAMOND review, for it marks our 75th guest recommendation here on TripAdvisor. We appreciate you utilizing Glitterati Private Tours...TWICE! This is a tough city to navigate because of its size, and we are very happy you let Bryan take the wheel and showcase all that L.A. has to offer. All the best to you and your family!

Did a toe hour tour with Bryan who was an excellent guide and driver. He took me around many of the interesting neighborhoods of LA including Sunset, Beverly Hills, Rodeo Drive and Melrose as well as a drive up to the Hollywood Hills. Bryan was very informative and responsive to my questions. He provided me some great advice for shopping and local restaurants and also recommended some places to visit in Palm Springs where I am traveling next. Overall an excellent experience, highly recommended, far better than the generic bus tours that are touted along Hollywood Blvd. Five stars!!

Thanks a million for the 5-Star review of Glitterati Private Tours here on TripAdvisor. (You have a very impressive travel profile, by the way). Bryan and the team work hard at providing outstanding service and once again, I'm very happy that we exceeded our guests' expectations. Regarding the van and bus tours -- we know we have a lot of competition in this city, and we thank you for choosing a private tour. Continued safe travels!

Not being a "tour" type family, I was a little nervous about booking a tour for our 11 and 16 year olds whilst in LA on Saturday - especially with the Oscars on Sunday. However, from the first inquiry until the gracious drop off at two points, Jimmy exceeded all expectations. He was responsive, intelligent, and thoughtful (treats in the car!). His tour hit all the right notes to make the afternoon memorable, and he was ready with a well organized iPad that showed just how much lies behind the hedges and walls. He was early for pick up, texted regularly in advance and upon location, and displayed more than enough "inside" knowledge to make the two hours (in the pouring rain!) fly by. Clean, safe SUV offering good views from every seat. Both kids had a great time, and he made payment a breeze at the end. Highly recommended - thank you, Jimmy, from the Big Apple!

I still can't believe you've hit rain BOTH times you've been to Los Angeles! It NEVER rains here, nor does it hail! That being said, I'm very happy that you all enjoyed your tour and your time here in L.A. Thanks so much for the review and for choosing Glitterati Tours. May you have a wonderful spring in New York.

I took my daughter and her best friend to LA this weekend to see the sights and Hollywood. We only had one true day to do all this, as we only came in for the weekend and basically spent two days traveling. Bryan was our guide and he was " FAB" as my two teens would say. He helped them get all their pics and went wherever they wanted to go, and we just had an all around great experience! There is no possible way we could have seen everything we wanted to see in such a short period of time without Glitterati Tours. Thanks so much!

Thanks for the review here on TripAdvisor! All of us at Glitterati Tours love hearing from our guests. We're happy you got the most out of Los Angeles during your short stay. We agree that a private tour is the best way to take advantage of a city the size of L.A., and we hope that you come back, kick off your shoes, and spend more time when back on the West Coast. All the best, and thanks again!
