“A Truly Excellent One Day in LA”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

Reading the reviews made me wonder - could it really be this good. Then I saw a picture of the Rasta Bus and wondered whether this was for us (a mid-aged couple). We had a one day layover in LA, staying near LAX and they offered 8:30 hotel pickup, tour from 9:45 to after 5pm, and return hotel dropoff - making it very easy to join the tour. So we went for it. And it was excellent. Our guide Brett was enthusiastic and knowledgable - and a native of LA! Yes the bus was colourfully painted, and it had a great vibe and "attitude" to match the very young and vibrant CEO of this great venture. We filled in the day on City Tour 1 visiting Malibu, Bevelly Hills, Hollywood, Griffith Observatory, Sunset Strip, Rodeo Drive, and more. It was actually a lot of fun, thanks to Brett, and I have no reservations at all recommending this to anyone of any age - a great way to spend a day in LA! I noticed the other passengers were as happy to tip the guide/driver as we were at the end of the day.

“Bill Cosby Sighting and More!”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

"A DAY IN LA TOURS" is definitely a five star tour. We were pleasantly surprised during our tour through the Hollywood Hills residential area, to get an up close and personal star sighting of Bill Cosby.
Our tour guide was in the middle of his patter, when the passenger side door of a grey pick-up opened, and out popped Mr. Cosby!
When we all began to shout, upon seeing Bill just a few feet away from our tour bus, walking leisurely toward his front door, our tour guide interrupted his spiel, to stop and stare right along with us.
As he explained later, it is not completely unusual to have a star sighting during their tours, but it is highly unusual to have a star sighting within a few feet of the tour bus!
But such was our luck, and it made our day. Along with the fresh fruit and bottles of water provided by the tour too, of course.
Also, the fact that every half hour or so we stopped at a destination, such as Rodeo Drive, or Venice Beach, and were able to get off and stretch our legs, made a big difference as far as I was concerned. It kept us fresh and eager for the next destination. The tour is also set-up so that if nature calls a public washroom is always just 15 minutes away. I was travelling solo, so the tour worked out quite well for me, in that I easily made friends with my fellow passengers, and had someone to hang out with during our walkabouts.

We also stopped for a tasty mid-day meal at the famous Farmer`s Market to energize us before our afternoon delight of bus touring. The price is quite reasonable as well. If you only have one day to see the city sights of LA, then this is the tour for you. Well done "A DAY IN LA TOURS" !!! I`ll be back again!!!

“Amazing Segway Tour”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

Took a 2 hour private Segway tour of Santa Monica and Venice with this guys and had the most amazing time! The tour guide was incredibly nice and knowledgeable. He trained us to ride the segways in a few minutes and it was easy riding after that! We saw all the sights and had an awesome time riding. Highly recommended.

“Great day out”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

This was a great day. Raoul our guide was very informative and had lots of little anecdotes to tell us. The trip round Beverley Hills to see some of the stars houses was made more exciting by spotting Bill Cosby getting out of a car and going into his house. The Farmers Market was a great place to stop for lunch with lots of choice. The views from Griffith Park were superb and it was good to end up in Hollywood and see the Chinese Theatre and all the stars autographs. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tour to anyone and will probably go on the trip around LA downtown next time I am over.
