Full description
Your local guide will meet you in a central location in Newport Beach, excited to help you enjoy a great night out. California sunsets are something to behold, so before the night closes in you’ll head to the end of the pier for a mesmerizing sunset over the Pacific Ocean.

It will then be time to start the beer tasting. Your first stop will be a locally-loved dive bar, before you then move on to a charming microbrewery where you can taste different flavors of their beers. You will be invited to try one of their locally brewed IPAs, or the famous Chihuahua Cerveza.

Next, take an Uber to the ferry terminal and catch a boat out to lively Balboa Island. Enjoy a stroll around the neighborhood and then enjoy a drink in a popular local inn that boasts regular live music sessions with local artists. Your tour will end there, but your guide will be very happy to make recommendations for further exploring Balboa Island that evening, and Orange County the next day.
