See the real LA!

  • Did a full day walking tour of LA. Our tour guide Damien was very knowledgeable and passionate about giving us all information in a clear and concise way. The tour was very well planned and organised and was not tiring.

  • Angela took us inside some beautiful Broadway theaters, told us about LA history and was very enthusiastic about her city. The great thing was that she actually took us inside the buildings. Plus after the tour we went for the 35cent cocktails! Great tour and great guide!

What a way to start the day

When you decided to visit Los Angeles, probably at the top of your list of things to do here was checking out the beaches. But how are you going to do it? Why not let us do the work by joining our Santa Monica and Venice Bike Tour, letting you relax and enjoy the quintessential L.A. pastime, cycling the area on a Beach Cruiser. That way you can experience the famous boardwalk and canals, go to some hidden spots that only locals like us know of and learn about the history of the famous neighborhoods you’re passing through.

We’ll have your bicycles ready when you arrive for the Santa Monica and Venice Bike tour, then we’ll head down to the beach. The tour passes by famous Santa Monica Pier, before heading south towards Venice. We briefly stop on Venice Boardwalk, at Muscle Beach, and then continue past Venice Beach Pier to the beautiful canals. There’s a stop on hip Abbot Kinney Boulevard for juice or coffee (depends how healthy you want it to be!), before we head north up Main St, with its great collection of independent shops, cafes and bars, pausing to take in Santa Monica City Hall and the lovely Tongva Park. Your Santa Monica and Venice Bike Tour then ends back in the heart of Santa Monica – the perfect place to get lunch or head into downtown Los Angeles for our Central Downtown LA tour.

Our tours can sell out. If you cannot make a booking email us at [email protected], telling us when you want to do the tour and how many guests are in your party, and if we can squeeze you in we’ll let you know.
