“This is the Tour You've Been Looking For”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

After checking all of the TripAdvisor and Yelp reviews, we decided to book with A Day in LA. It had consistently high marks among all the other tours and the RastaBus looked like it was really going to be fun. We made the right choice.

The website was easy to use and was running a special on tickets the week we arrived in LA. I also called the office to confirm that the bus would pick us up at our hotel. No problem at all.
The company is relatively new and the staff seems eager to please it's customers. That's a real plus these days.

The guide on our trip was Brian and the driver was Eddie. It was Friday before Veteran's Day and traffic around the city was heavy (as usual). Made me appreciate having someone like Eddie at the wheel to navigate through the city for 8 1/2 hours.

Brian was enthusiastic and entertaining throughout the whole day. You all know that it's the tour guide who either "makes or breaks" the day. He delivers!

The RastaBus stands out from all the other tour groups and draws a lot of attention. It plays "island" music throughout the day and keeps everyone in a fun mood. There were numerous stops during the tour and the bus was easy to spot and conveniently parked for us to get back on board.

I will not list the numerous destinations on the trip since they are all listed on the website and in other TripAdvisor reviews. We hit every one of them before the day ended without feeling rushed or shortchanged.

Don't pass this trip up if you're looking for a great day out!

“it was like a froend showing you around”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

our tour was not full (maybe 14 people) and it really felt like your best friend was just showing you around town. My family and i couldn't have asked for a better time. The tour is the full day but goes by very quickly. 100% recommended.

“A Day in LA”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

Thanks to our excellent guide, Brian, and his super driver, Matt, for showing us a great time in LA. Brian's commentary was such fun. We enjoyed sitting back and enjoying the sights, with plenty of time to get off the RastaBus and stretch our legs. We would recommend this tour to everyone who would appreciate an interesting, leisurely time in LA.

“LA made easy and entertaining!”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

What a wonderful packed full day. Derwin and Brian are the best. Brian was chocked filled of information. I and my BFFs rate your tour a 5! I definitely would recommend this tour to my friends, near and far. The soundtrack was apropos for the tour, and the tour is priced right. The RastaBus was easy to find in the sea of ordinary, helpful for the weary eyes. I could not find any low lights!

“Wonderful LA Tour!!!”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

This tour is the best in town. It is small, personal, only about 20 people on the Rastabus. We had Brian as our tour guide and he was very entertaining and also knew his buisness!! Got to see alot more of LA than we would have without this tour. I think this is a new small business that is getting it right, price is decent and you are treated with respect the whole day. Made alot of good stops, had a great lunch at the Grove. Saw several star homes which I really enjoyed. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. Don't go on those big 2 story buses, go the Rasta way with qualified tour guides and you will not be disappointed!!!
