We say it all the time, but a private tour is truly the best way to get the most out of a city the size of Los Angeles in a limited amount of time. Guests with Glitterati Tours can pick their start time, what they want to see, and customize their tour along the way. We're very pleased that you... More

We had only one day in LA and wanted to see all the hot spots. Jimmy was so thoughtful in preparing our trip for us, and Dan was an excellent driver and tour guide. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip and saw everything we wanted to. I would highly recommend Glitterati Tours!

The hours we spent with David were the best possible use of our time and money in LA. He treated us like old friends and went way above and beyond to get us to all the places we wanted to see - and many we didn't know we wanted to see. He even knew the best places to take pictures... More

We are in LA for a family vacation and wanted to do the bus tour thing. We went with a private tour and it was an amazing time. Our 12 yr old still talks about how great our guide Paul Nygro was.

We are the first to remind visitors that we may not be for everybody, but we also believe there's a big bang for the buck with our price point. We often say that a private tour can show you more in 2 to 3 hours, than a larger coach can show guests in double or triple the time. It's because... More
