After doing a tour I have a good feel for what the city has to offer. Never a dull moment! So many great stories about some of the more famous land marks. Tour guides also go out of their way to give you some insight on the hidden gems of LA as well. The 3 hour whirlwind tour gave me a good overview of both the history of the industry as well as the city of LA!

Happy New Year! We appreciate you utilizing our services for your recent sightseeing excursion here in Hollywood and Beverly Hills. We may be partial, but we believe that a private tour truly is the best way to see a city as large as Los Angeles. You get to fully customize your time and interests, or just give us the reins. Either way, it's what we do and love! Thanks for the review here on TripAdvisor.

If you're visiting Los Angeles for the first time you must reserve a tour with Glitterati! They have an impeccable staff with a plethora of knowledge. They escort you around the city in a luxury vehicle jam packed with snacks and refreshments. They personalize the tour based on your preferences. This tour allows for photo opps and on and off opportunities. They even take you to an exclusive view of the Hollywood sign that is only known to locals. Avoid the cheesy Hollywood tours and treat yourself to this upgrade. We had the pleasure of touring with Todd and he was outstanding. This VIP option will truly give you the insight on LA you're looking for. Thank you Glitterati!
