We did the 17 mile e-bike tour today and it was great! Our guide was Flo and he gave us a perfect mix of history, knowledge, activity and cruising! We did this as a family of 4 including 2 discerning teens (13 and 17) 5 stars. Highly recommend. Ps...bundle up! It's windy and brisk but well worth it!

We did the 17 mile scenic drive on e-bikes tour and it was amazing! The Monterey coast is so beautiful and there is no better way to explore it than by e-bike. Our tour guide was Flo and he was awesome! You could tell he really loves his job. There were only two other couples on our tour, so a small group. We were really disappointed that nobody else tipped the tour guide at the end. Please, if you do this tour, please tip the guides!!

Wow! Just amazing! Seriously, book it now, you won’t regret it. We lucked into like the warmest and sunniest June day ever. Zane was an amazing tour guide and had all kinds of fun facts and stories for us. He also very easily managed our large group of kids, parents and grandparents, most completely unfamiliar with e-bikes. Our boys loved taking turns riding backwards on the orange rad wagon, and holding onto the bike handles on the white rad wagon. The grandparents enjoyed the blue bike that had the backrest (can’t remember the name of that one). I would recommend bringing a jacket and wearing pants because in general it is very cold on the coast, especially when speeding along on the bike. We didn’t need ours though. We saw all kinds of amazing sea life, including otters and harbor seals. We also saw lots of deer, including babies, keep your eyes peeled! Tip- don’t forget to bring your wallet on the tour. I left mine in the car and we stopped at the shops at Pebble Beach for a few and I was wishing I hadn’t left my wallet behind. 🤦‍♀️

What a great way to explore this beautiful coastline! It was a truly memorable ride and everyone in our group (ranging from 34 to 70) really enjoyed it. The bikes make it attainable for all fitness levels and are very fun to ride. We were very fortunate to have Flo as our guide. He was knowledgeable, fun, and shared such a diverse range of information - we learned so much!!
