“Exceeded our Expectations! What a great way to see LA.”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

While on vacation in California we wanted a day tour of LA to see all we needed to see. We came up with RastaBus and booked tickets on line. It turned out to be a fab day for my wife and I with our very knowledgable driver/ guide called Matt in the RastaBus. It was scheduled for 5hours which went so quickly indicative that we were kept occupied and entertained. Some of the tours available are a bit cheesy in that you get the feeling ( from others we have seen the day before driving by) they would be starting a singalong ( which we would absolutely NOT want) . The Rasta Bus tour was very informative, and humourous while being very relaxed with lots of stops to get out and stretch your legs / toilet stops etc. There were many highlights and no low lights on this tour and at $65 each for the day we felt was good value for money when compared to others. We saw all the key sights you would expect to see in LA which included a 1 hour stop at the LA Farmers Market and Grove Shopping Centre which was excellent for lunch ( cost of lunch not included). I would definately recommend this trip to anyone looking for a tour when visiting LA.

“Fab day”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

As we were only in LA for two and a half days we decided to do the VIP tour of universal. That was the best decision! We entered the park about 1 1/2 hours before it opened and after a continental breakfast were introduced to our guide donna, who equipped us with ponchos for the wet rides and plenty of water to take with us. The studio tour was great, being able to get off and walk through prop departments and working sets was brilliant. We went straight to the front of queue on all rides, as many times as we liked and got great seats in the shows. Added to this we had a fantastic lunch, discount in the shops and a fantastic guide. The whole day was superb and well worth it

“Great way to have an overview of Los Angeles.”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

A perfect tour! This is a humorous and enlightening overview of the Los Angeles area. Comfortable small buses transport you through beautiful neighborhoods and various parts of Los Angeles. Stops at several locations with ample time to explore. Highly recommend this full day excursion.

“Great Tour”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

The Rastabus was Great! They had water/coffee and doughnuts before we started our day. Aaron was our tour guide and Paul was the driver. Nice guys and they had a great song playlist throughout the day---LA/California themed songs. Customer service is A+. Aaron had a slight problem with the microphone on the bus...it was not a big issue...when it went out he simply talked louder. However, he obviosuly reported it to the office during the day because before the end of the tour, I had received an email from the owner apologizing for the issue. Not necessary, but a nice touch. Great tour....Great company.

“A must for first timers in LA!”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

This tour was the best part of my trip. I am a regular traveler and this was my very first tour. Brian, the tour guy, was great! My twin daughters absolutely loved his personality~ he was very knowledgeable and honest. Me and the twins were always the last to arrive back to the bus after a sight...he was patient. Thanks Brian. Can't wait to do the Rustabus tour again (with friends).
