Had lots of fun doing a Segway ride along the Santa Monica beach. We arrived late for the organized ride, so ended up going by ourselves. Lots of fun, except one of the Segway was stuck on the 'turtle speed', and we did not really know what was happening until the end.

We had a fabulous family outing along Santa Monica and Venice Beaches, and to the end of Venice Pier, with Nick, our very knowledgeable local guide. A wonderful experience. Allow plenty of time to get there though if you're not staying in Santa Monica itself. The traffic has to be experienced to be believed!

Third experience on a Segway tour and about the most fun you can have on one of these things. My wife and I have discovered that we love Segway tours. This one took us from Santa Monica Beach, near the pier, to the Venice Beach Pier and back. Had a wonderful time. Our guide pointed out the fun sights along... More

We went on this tour to explore Venice beach. It takes you around the winding sidewalk area starting from near the Santa Monica pier all the way to the Venice pier, and then back. It was a nice way to see the beach. The only thing I didn't like was the 15 minute break we took to explore the area... More

Our guide Nick was great, nice way to see the beach and Venice beach without walking. Segways are easy to learn and a lot of fun once you feel comfortable

This tour between Santa Monica and Venice beaches is a great activity for those who do not want to walk or bike. Segways are a great way to cruise between the beaches. Segway LA offers both tours and rentals. After having done the tour, I suggest that one would go for a rental and not take the tour. Check out... More

Kendall was a terrific guide and instructor for this Segway tour. He took the time to demonstrate how to use the Segway to 2 senior citizens. We got the hang of this In no time. Kendall made just the right amount of stops on this 2 hr tour of Santa Monica and Venice beaches. He gave us some pretty interesting... More

i have to especially thank Nick for looking after me on our day, I can barely ride a bicycle so was really worried about the Segway. He and Kevin are excellent instructors and Nick really took the time to show us about and keep us straight. It's a great experience, very highly recommended. Great way to see the beach if... More

This was my first time on a Segway and Nick, our tour guide, made it so easy to LEARN how to ride. We did the Santa Monica / Venice Beach tour. It was a GREAT way to experience both beaches!!! We stopped several times (skateboard 'park', pier!) to enjoy the variety of the beaches -sights, sounds, and more! A MUST... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood 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.
