This tour was a lot of fun! Our tour guide Chad was sporty, funny and above all pleasant. He was very good at explaining the highlights and details. The day before our tour it had rained very hard which made it more difficult to cycle. Despite this, Chad managed to lead the tour on better roads. We would do this tour all over again. Thank you Chad for this great experience!!!

The ride was great. Our guide Barb gave us enough info throughout the ride to keep it interesting, but just checking out the general scene along the route makes it worthwhile. I bike all the time, but the e-bikes made it so even the least fit in our group had no problems enjoying the ride. I would highly recommend.

Fun way to explore the Santa Monica/Venice Beach ocean front. Bikes are nice, well maintained and everything is low key and simple. Definitely recommend traveling with this company. Our guide was a delight and A great navigator through busy Venice Beach. The 3 hours flew by.

My husband and I were only in the area for a day so wanted to see everything and I felt like we did. Sean was our guide and we was wonderful! So knowledgeable and made sure we were ok. Gave us all good information and stops along the tour. We had a great time!

The bike ride was awesome. Barb is an amazing guide. Very fun. Enjoyed it soo much. Will definitely have to do it again.
