Head to Los Angeles at the tail-end of February in time for the Academy Awards; the city is buzzing with anticipation as the red carpet unfurls and the biggest names in Hollywood arrive dressed up to the nines. Whilst the ceremony itself is an exclusive affair, there are always exciting fringe events open to the public – everything from open-air screenings to champagne-fuelled parties. Let A&K whisk you off to some of the best late-night hotspots to party amidst the glitz, glam and glitterati. Your name may not be among the nominees, but it’ll certainly be on the VIP list.
An indisputable icon of San Francisco’s skyline, the Golden Gate Bridge straddles the vast strait of its namesake. A visit to the ‘City by the Bay’ would be incomplete without crossing the bridge at least once. You could simply drive, or even cycle, but for a truly unique experience, board one of San Francisco’s vintage cable cars. These electric-powered trams have a long and fascinating history, and are typically bustling with tourists. Afford yourself the luxury of a private cable car tour, arranged by us, to see this city in style.
