We loved our guide, Todd, from the moment we met. He was warm and funny, worked to learn our interests and find common interests in theatre. Todd is also an actor and singer so had great insider stories to share. The whole booking process was a delight to tailor a tour to our interests. The car was huge and very... More

Fantastic review of our Los Angeles tour company, and we thank you!

After hearing the horror stories of large group tours, we (two adults and two teenage girls) were referred to Glitterati for a personalized experience.

Jimmy set us up with a private t our for the Essential Hollywood on October30 2016 . 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!

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!

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.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood 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.
