"We went on the LA tour with Rastabus and thoroughly enjoyed it. The bus was not jam packed like others ive been on so everyone talked to each other. The guide was knowledgeable and constantly kept us informed on where we were going and info about the place - he also answered any questions anyone had. We pretty much covered all the spots that everyone wanted to see and our driver did ask if there was anything in particular we wanted to see then to just let him know, so that was good. We stopped at each place for just the right amount of time, not too long to get bored but just long enough to see what was needed. The trip lasted the whole day and i would definitely recommend if you are visiting LA."

Jenny - Los Angeles Tour Review
My husband and I were staying in Palm Springs for a week and decided to take a day trip out to LA to see the main sites. Having only one day in LA, we decided to look for a tour that would show us the most sites. This tour did that and a lot more! Jake was an amazing tour guide!! Very funny and entertaining and played amazing music the whole time (we regret not asking him for his playlist afterwards!). He showed us everything we could've wanted to see and also had so many stories to share about his own personal experiences with stars in the area. His knowledge of the area was also very helpful when we had to take detours due to traffic. He always kept the bus moving and got us everywhere quickly. It was fun to hear some of crazy hollywood stories about the stars and see sites that most tours woudn't tell you about ("this is where Lindsey Lohan crashed her car", "this is where Mel Gibson was arrested for drunk driving"!). Even though it was an action packed day, nothing felt rushed. We had sufficient time to explore Rodeo Drive, Hollywood Blvd and Griffith Park on our own. I still can't believe how cheap this tour is as we would've paid a lot more for it! Even though we only had the one day in LA, we really feel like we saw everything there. I will recommend this tour to anyone going to LA. Thanks for a fantastic day Jake!!

Great bargain and excellent tour. I cannot think of any must-see stops in greater LA that were missed. Our guide, Aron, was patient, knowledgeable and entertaining. He made adjustments to the schedule to personally accommodate the desires of our group. Ours was a very international group representing England, New Zealand and Canada. If you are looking for a quiet tour without interacting with others, this isn't for you. But if you don't take yourself seriously, enjoy a laugh, and don't mind people staring as you drive around in this colorful bus you couldn't make a better choice.
Since we were staying out of town we arranged to drive in and meet up in Santa Monica. We were able to park directly across the street in a covered parking lot (next to the police station) where the cost for the entire day was only $9.00. Traffic was its usual gridlock when we returned in the afternoon so we took advantage of wandering the downtown area. There's an upscale mall with a food court and great view on the 3rd floor right down the street. A couple of blocks one direction gets you to the water and the pier. Go the other direction and there are numerous restaurants and shops. Enough to keep you busy for several hours.
All in all a most wonderful experience.
Tooling around LA on the Rastabus is a great way to be introduced to LA in a short amount of time. Our guide Matt was a whole lot of fun, and very knowledgeable about the city. You get to see all the main tourist destinations, and some gossip on some of the celebrities who live there. The Farmer's Market is a great place to stop and have lunch, and it is great to start the day in beautiful Santa Monica. If you are only in LA for a short time, this is a really good way to make sure you don't miss anything.

Tammy - "This is how tours are suppose to be!"
We had a blast! Kimiko was our guide and she was perfect. She blended knowledge of the area with great humor! She was born for this type of career. The tour is a great value! You get to do so much for so little. We even had a date mix up for our day. The company was so professional and handled it perfectly. You owe it to yourself to see this beautiful area with theses amazing people. The bus is comfortable, the destinations are just what you want, and the price is more than right! ( You will get to see that too!)
"My girlfriend and I had the best time ... She's from Mexico and it was her first time in LA. I didn't have a car and didn't know exactly what to do to get to all the cool / must see places.. I am from here originally and i know Los Angeles is huge.. She only had a couple of days here and they pretty much covered most of what she wanted to see. She wanted to stay a tad longer on Rodeo Dr. (i'm glad we didn't, save some $$) -- but besides that i give 'em a thumbs up."
KC - Los Angeles Tour Review
I've lived in LA my whole life and saw things on the tour I never knew where here. The tour had such a great atmosphere, really a fun relaxing time. I would recommend this to anyone visiting LA and even for those who live here.
