Fabulous tour with our Friendly guide Paul. Booked from home in the U.K. With details confirmed via email we were able to request our desires for the perfect tour. Pleased to say we saw it all and more! Plus we were so lucky to have Paul who is an actor himself. (Cruising around Hollywood with a real actor #socool )
A sucker for all things in the movie world it was so exciting to see celeb homes, hangouts and movie locations. Paul was also happy to answer questions and take pics of us. Paul's knowledge of the area took us to some really cool places we never would of seen or stopped at on a big hot overloaded tour bus.
It wasn't cheap but money well spent, so glad we chose this option, it was a great way to make a memory.

Awesome how international visitors can find a private tour company in Beverly Hills via sites like TripAdvisor. We're happy you chose Glitterati and that Paul provided a fantastic L.A. excursion. Paul, like all the guides, are connected to the entertainment industry, which really helps in understanding what makes this city tick. Pleased that you felt you got a big bang for your buck in choosing a private tour and that we were able to customize your sightseeing interests. P.S. - Thanks for the great photos!

We had Dan as our guide for the Essentials Tour. He was professional, prompt, approachable and knowledgeable. Black Navigator SUV impeccably clean. Dan was open and flexible to each of the family members preferences, no question was left unaddressed. Kids said it was the favorite part of the trip to LA...so that was huge! Not cheap, but what in LA is, and felt it was money well spent for the short time we were there to get the maximum LA exposure and experience. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

When competing with arcades, museums, piers, amusement parks, beaches and hotel pools, the best compliment we can get is when kids enjoy their tour as much as their parents. We're thrilled to be part of your short stay here in Los Angeles, and happy that we maximized your sightseeing excursion with our private Glitterati tour. All the best!

We went on a tour with Jimmy. He's a good guy. Very enthusiastic which is great. You can say what you want to see and he'll takes you there. The guide takes you also to beautiful places where are nearly no touristst. When you are in Hollywood, don't book a tour in a full tourbus. Pay a little more and go private!!! It is worth it.

Huge compliment coming from you two since you're from one of the most incredible cities -- Amsterdam! We're happy you enjoyed your time in Los Angeles and chose Glitterati Tours for your sightseeing excursion. As you mentioned, private tours can definitely afford a visitor the opportunity to customize their time, and really get off the beaten path of some of the more touristy locations. Continued safe travels!

Tod was one of the most engaging and knowledgable tour guides we have ever come across. We did the Stars Home tours and it was fantastic. We saw all areas of the Beverly Hills and Los Angeles star homes and even though some of them you only saw the front gate Tod has a iPad that showed the houses so you were able to see the extent and beauty of these houses. Tod was obliging and anything we asked to see he was more than happy to help us. I would recommend Glitterati Tours to all who want a private tour that is fun, entertaining, engaging and knowledgable.

Thank you for recommending our Beverly Hills and L.A. tour company to TripAdvisor users. The entire Glitterati Tours team works hard at keeping up to date, especially in the celebrity homes arena. Things change daily! We're currently adding about a dozen recent purchases to our iPad presentation...not to mention a $250M dollar home and its upscale neighbor in Bel Air that will hit the market at half a billion. Oh, La La Land. Thanks again!

We were recently fortunate enough to do the Essential Los Angeles tour with Glitterati. Wow, what a fabulous experience! Colin was a fantastic guide, and gave us an informative and entertaining overview of all the places of interest, from Rodeo Drive, the Hollywood sign, Paramount Pictures, the Walk of Fame, the Chinese and Dolby Theaters, Sunset Strip, many of the mansions of Beverly Hills and the stars homes. We also got a couple of surprises based on our interests, which was great. The vehicle was so comfortable and luxurious, and was loaded with goodies to snack on. This was a 'big ticket' item on our holiday budget, but worth every cent. We felt so special being driven around privately, and away from the big tourist groups. Highly recommended. Thank you Colin, Jimmy and the team!

So glad you enjoyed your private Los Angeles sightseeing tour with Colin. We were excited putting this together, because of your unique wishlist, and happy that the surprises paid off for the two of you. Obviously private tours will be more expensive than larger L.A. group tours, but a visitor may only get to see a city once. Happy that you chose Glitterati Tours as your guide to our amazing home, and that you recommended our services to other travelers here on TripAdvisor. All the best!
