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

After an overnight rain, the conditions were a little damp in the morning but he did not affect a great ride along the beach and through Venice. This was a wonderful and not too strenuous way to be outside along the beach. Barb gave great insights into the history and special points along the way. I would recommend this for... 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.
