I'd been to LA before but never down to Santa Monica or Venice Beach. Glad I did this tour as it was the perfect way to see this area. Was a beautiful day and Stephen my tour guide was very knowledgable and made it a great day. I'd done a hike the day before so the legs were a little... More

My wife and I did this tour and it is worth your time and the small fee. You get a terrific tour and a little exercise (if you want it). The name says it all "Pedal...Or Not". You can pedal you bike and get a little work out with your tour, or if you are not quite in shape, use... More

We absolutely loved our biking or, should I say (for some of my family members--pedal optional) trip through Santa Monica and Venice Beach! It was our first day in California and wow-what a great tour! Barb was enthusiastic and fun! What a beautiful sunny day to tour around the boardwalk. Definitely a must for anyone wanting to get exercise (or... More

Our family group ranged from a 21 year old athlete to 60 year olds. Our grandaughter & son pedaled all the way while my husband, daughter in law and I kept up their pace using the electric as needed. It was absolutely amazing! Stephen was very accommodating to our group in planning the outing as well as patient & helpful... More

Our group ranged with children from age 12-22. The option of pedal or power was great as our group could easily stay together. After a lesson on how to use the bikes, we were off. Barb took time to show us all the local sites. Everyone in our group enjoyed it quite a bit and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend... More

Excellent outing for my husband and I! The bikes are easy to use and no one knows if you are pedalling or not. There was a good balance between riding and stopping at points of interest. Our tour guide, Barb, did a great job of providing a variety of information from trivia to history. She answered all of our questions... More

This was an EXCELLENT tour! In our 1 week in LA we took a Hollywood Tour, Paramount Studios Tour and a Dodger Stadium tour. Our last day was saved for the beach and no better way to see it than on a bike, especially one you don't have to pedal!. We got there early to find a parking spot and... More

We had a great day together pedaling (or not) with Barb. The sun and sights were glorious. We had such a great time, everyone was all smiles. The option to use the electric motor was a perfect way to let everyone keep the same pace as well as have energy left over to do further sightseeing. We just created our... More
