Some friends and I recently went on this tour of Santa Monica and Venice Beach and I have to say it was Spectacular! So much fun zipping around on the electric bike and we had the Fabulous Barb telling us lots of fun facts about this iconic place. I highly recommend it!

Perfect way to start the day. Took the morning ride. Our guide took us through the whole tour with ease and grace. It was great to ride along the beach - beautiful, scenic tour. Nice balance of riding and information. Also great ride for experienced or non-experienced riders.

We so enjoyed our afternoon of biking with our tour guide, Barb. We called her an hour or two before the tour reserve a spot on the 2pm ride and were told that no one had signed up, so there was no tour. Barb quickly said that she wasn't at the office but could be there in 20 minutes, and... More

I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who is looking at doing a bike tour of Santa Monica. Barb was our guide and my fiancé and I had a heap of fun riding through Santa Monica and Venice. Barb made the entire trip a heap of fun and she has a wealth of knowledge of Santa Monica.

We had a great time seeing Santa Monica and Venice on bikes with our great tour guide Barb. She provided a great balance of fun and history up and down the coast to provide a great orientation for the rest of our visit. We especially loved seeing "Ike" at Muscle Beach in Venice! We would have missed the Venice Canals... More

We have 3 teenagers and enjoy active sightseeing. This trip was great for the whole family. We rode along the bike path from Santa Monica to Venice Beach and then through the city of Venice to see the canals. At one point, the tour guide let us see "how fast the bikes can go" which was fun. Not having to... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
