“Fun, fun, fun!!!!”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Amazing experience! Barb was a fantastic and knowledgeable guide. I am not a confident cyclist but felt like a real pro on the electric bike. Tried to pedal most of the time but being able to use the extra power was a real bonus. Wonderful way to discover Santa Monica and Venice Beach.
DO NOT MISS OUT ON THIS EXPERIENCE!!! It was one of the highlights of an amazing trip to California.

“Great way to see Santa Monica”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. We looked at bike tours so that we could see a little of the area, This one was great, as the electric bikes meant that you could literally, pedal or not. They were easy to master and you could pick up quite a speed. and Barbara took us around town and onto the beach in Santa Monica and down to Venice. We rode along the beach cycle path and stopped by the funfair and Marion Davies' guest house. Barbara was very knowledgeable about the history of the area, we saw the beachfront homes, including that of Donald Sutherland. And it was great to hear about the development and decline of the Venice canals. Very safety conscious, helmets required and a little warm up ride on the sidewalk before setting off. Some road use, but Barbara ensured we were all quite safe, would definitely recommend.

“Interesting and just plain fun!”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

Barb was the perfect guide. It was a great way for us to see Santa Monica and Venice Beach. I hadn't been on a bike in years and I was worried. The electric bike let me keep up with my 19 year old daughter- sometimes I pedaled and sometimes I didn't. We both had a great time. The electric bike let me enjoy the scenery, the sometimes exercise and the interesting local information. Barb, thanks for the memories.

“Highlight of Our Visit to Santa Monica”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

As a travel professional I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Santa Monica. My family took this tour on a recent visit and it was a great way to discover the city and made us feel like locals rather than tourists. The electric bikes make the tour a lot more fun than and a normal pedal bike and allow you to see a lot of the city in 4 hours. Our guide was very informative about the history and famous characters of the city while showing us the many interesting sights which included the Venice canals and Muscle beach.

Being in very small groups makes the whole experience very individual and everyone who takes this tour will find it fun and a very memorable experience. Of all the things we did while in Santa Monica this was the best.
