We covered so much territory, got some exercise, but when a hill came up we turned on the pedal assist and sped right up with no effort at all. Brody was our very charming and knowledgeable guide. The route was just perfect taking us past the zoo to Butterfly Beach, through Montecito, back along East and West beaches and up the hill to City College for some stunning views, then out to the Mission via State Street, and the back to the shop via the Funk Zone. It wasn’t much more expensive than renting e-bikes on our own and so much fun to have a local’s perspective on Santa Barbara and to get oriented on places we were able to revisit later in our visit.

The Mrs and I booked a private electric bicycle tour from this organization and glad we did. Or tour guide, Sergio, was a very knowledgeable and personable guide, and, was very clear on the instructions throughout the tour which was about 2.5 hours. Very well worth the $95 per person that we paid. We ended up going to the mission, the presidio, the city college, the beach, and several other locations. Sergio also provided his recommendations, being a lifelong resident of Santa barbara, of good restaurants and other attractions to visit while we were here.. I highly recommend this tour operator, and especially Sergio, should you have the opportunity to do so while in Santa barbara.

What a awesome adventure we had seeing some great beaches that we never new existed in Santa Barbra. I grew up in the area and usually come back once or twice a year and I always wanted to do this but this was the first time we did. I will plan to do it again.
Cooper our guide was awesome he asked up front what we wanted to see and we told him the ocean and beaches and he did just that.
The Electric bikes were great I felt like I was cheering because it was so easy and what a great advantage going up hills .
If you have time you need to do this tour.

Was a great way to see a lot of Santa Barbara. We booked a 10:00 am private tour so the weather was cool and our tour guide, Elias was very knowledgeable and friendly. The bikes are maintained and in great shape. It appeared that they sanitized then between rides. I would highly recommend this company and Elias to everyone.
We road about 15 miles and went up some pretty steep hills but with these bikes it was a breeze.

Cai is an excellent guide. We told him we had already walked around the State St area and would prefer to see more of the natural beauty of Santa Barbara so he took us up into the hills of Montecito. Neither of us have been on an electric bike and Cai was very patient with that and made us feel comfortable while riding. Cai is an SB native so knows tons about the history and also gave us some great recommendations for restaurants. I would highly recommend Cal Coast Adventures, their bikes are in good condition and I would request Cai as your guide.

We went on this private tour and our tour guide was Connor. He was terrific! He was very knowledgeable about Santa Barbara and the surrounding areas. He took us to some of the very best locations in the area and shared lots of history about various buildings, streets and residence. Oh, and my bike was fantastic! I was so happy to be on an electric bike. I was able to ride up the hill with ease as Connor surprised us at the end of our tour with a top notch location site with a beautiful view of the ocean and the Santa Barbara, Montecito mountains. I highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to enjoy a nice adventure while getting a little history of Santa Barbara.

My wife and I enjoyed a private ebike tour of Santa Barbara with Kai as our guide. We recently purchased two ebikes, but had not yet ridden them because of wintry weather at home. The tour with Kai was a great way to get familiar and comfortable with ebikes (they even provided us the exact same Rad bikes as we had purchased!) in a laidback approach to city riding. Kai was energetic, engaging and informative. Even though we already had poked around Santa Barbara ourselves, Kai was able to take us to new places we would have missed, and he gave fun insight and information to places we already had seen. All-in-all a great experience and one we highly recommend to others so inclined to this type activity.

Highly recommend this tour! Ideally you would take this on the first day of your trip to get the lay of the land and decide how you want to spend your time in Santa Barbara. Our guide Brody was great, providing info, answering questions and giving us options for routes. This was the first time any of our family of five (three teens) had been on electric bikes and they were awesome. You can ride all over town without breaking a sweat. Totally worth the money and a highlight of our trip!

Hey there! Sounds like Brody showed you just about everything you wanted to see on your Electric Bike Tour of Santa Barbara. I personally LOVE our electric bikes, and the EBike tours are such a blast for the whole family. I even took a dog along for a tour the other day! We can't wait to see you next time! Take care,

One of the most fun things we have ever done! We booked the 10am private tour and Connor was our guide. Right off the bat he was just so warm, fun and energetic. He tailored the trip to see the things we asked, switched it up effortlessly when we threw in a few curve balls and made us feel so special! He made it feel like he was guiding you to hidden treasure with every stop. 2.5 hours just wasn’t enough, we could of cruised all day. We highly recommend this tour and Connor as a guide!
