Raul made the Rasta Bus such a good time! The tour started in Santa Monica and then we went to Malibu, Pacific Palisades, Rodeo, the Farmers Market and Grove, Hollywood, Griffith Observatory, and Sunset Strip. At each major destination, we got off the bus for about 20-30 minutes, with the exception of lunch (1.5hrs). That gave us enough time to check out some highlights and move on to the next cool place.

Raul was down to earth, super friendly, funny, and had some great recommendations for places to visit and eat at. I had very little time in LA and this tour basically gave me everything I wanted and took me everywhere that I wanted to see. The water and fresh fruit in the morning and throughout the day was also a really nice touch.

Let someone else do the driving and talking while you sit back and enjoy the sites. A day in LA tours is the best company to book with!!!

Thanks to tripadvisor, we had an awesome time!
Raul was our guide and man, he is so good, he has the gift of the gab and what we thought to be a boring tour in a rickety bus turned to be a day in a comedy club on wheels! In fact he is so knowledgeable of the city that we have made a list of 22 more things to do in LA the next time we come there. unforgetable tour! Only thing is they could have given us more time to spend at the Hollywood Boulevard and the observatory instead of a 1.5 r lunch break.
Awesome guys!

"A day in LA Tours" is the tour to take! It is so organized, fun, informational and worth the time/money. When we arrived in LA, our son was sick (and in the ER) so we had to change our tour date. They were so helpful and made sure we were placed on the tour a few days later. We loved seeing Santa Monica, the Grove for lunch (we had a Mario Lopez sighting there), Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, the Hollywood sign, and Griffith Park. Thanks for a fun day!

On our recent trip we only had a couple of days in LA but it's huge and we wanted to see everything. We ended up picking the day on the Rasta Bus because it got such good reviews and I'm so glad we did. It was a brilliant day. Our driver and guide Joseph was really great. Because it's only a small bus (there's more than one) we were able to get around places that bigger buses couldn't. It also meant that you got a great view when driving about. We saw other tours that were open top, some with sun shades, but to be honest it's better to have the air con!

During the day we got to see so many things and had enough time out of the bus at each of the stops to get a good look around, take pics and decide what we wanted to come back and spend longer at. I recommended the trip to my sister who was travelling after us and her family loved it too.

Before we travelled, people had told us to skip LA altogether but we actually really enjoyed our time there and I think it was mostly due to having such a good time on the Rasta Bus.

My friend and i had a great time with rasta bus. Brett took us all over LA and had plenty of interesting anecdotes about each place. There was a wide mix of people on our bus- families, younger couples, older couples. I would recommend it for anyone who would like to see a guided tour of a wide mix of LA landmarks.
