Very accommodating business. We had a strict timeline and they went above and beyond to get us out 1 hour earlier than out scheduled appointment. The employees that we encountered were super friendly, especially Andre who visited with us until our guide Dale arrived. Dale was fantastic! He knows the city well and was full of information. He made sure that we were always safe while cycling and kept us informed of anticipated turns well in advance. He took us to Montecito at one end, to the centre of town and then to the Mission on the other side. A highlight in town was the Court House where the bell tower recently reopened and the view from there was amazing. Best day of our holiday thanks to Dale of Cal Coast Adventures.

What an amazing tour! We thoroughly enjoyed our 2.5 hrs with Sergio, our tour guide. The route was fun and interesting; we also felt very safe on the roads/cycle paths. The tour gave us a great overview of the city plus we got fabulous restaurant/cafe recommendations.

Highly recommend! SO fun, and a great way to see all the hidden gems of the city up close. Our guide Dale was amazing! His knowledge of Santa Barbara is extensive and is only surpassed by his love for the community. He went above and beyond making sure that we were safe and comfortable ( he even had extra windbreakers for us!). We absolutely loved everything about this tour! Do it!!!!
