Great day out and tour with Barb! They let you try the bikes out and get used to them first then take you on a guided tour. Must do when in santa monica.

While staying in Santa Monica my sister and I had the opportunity to go on one of Barb's guided tours. The afternoon was spent zooming around the area experiencing many of the most famous attractions like Venice beach, muscle beach, and the Santa Monica Pier. At each stop, Barb had an immense amount of interesting facts and stories. She was... More

I was a solo traveler in transit who only had one day in town; I love the beach there so thought this tour would be a great way to ride along the beach while getting to know the area some more.

My 21 year old son and I booked this tour as a relaxing and guided way to see the beach and it was just that! Barbara was our guide and she lead us through a very well planned path. The bikes were fantastic since we choose to pedal or not. We were well instructed on how to ride from the... More

To see the Sunshine State at the sea, was so atmospheric, with the sea breeze and the sand under your feet, with Barbara who was so knowledgeable and friendly. This was an pleasurable and incredible experience, which you would not get the full benefit by car. My fourteen year old daughter loved this experience during our stay in Santa Monica.... 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.
