Really interesting, small group tour. San Juan Capistrano was fascinating and Laguna Beach was lovely, We saw sea lions and dolphins from the headland.
A small tour with a very informative guide. A great way to see the coastline and get a feel for life in the OC. The mission was fantastic and a real highlight of the tour
wow! What an amazing and informative day! great fun meeting the patients at the pacific marine mammal center and learning all aspects of marine life on the beach with our excellent guide ceri! We were well looked after and had such a fun afternoon. Will definitely recommend this tour to our friends and will be back soon!
I have visited southern California several times but never before seen the places we went to on this tour. The breathtaking views of Laguna Beach and Dana Point were well worth the trip. Our tour guide took us down secret little side streets that gave us access to some of the most beautiful beachfront scenery. The tour gave us time to walk leisurely at each location which enabled us to really appreciate what we saw. I highly recommend this tour for anyone new or unfamiliar with this part of the southern California coast.
great trip good value for money, had a great driver called Brendan who gave us loads of interesting info nice harbour cruise included to see the stars homes
It was a very good tour. We spent the right amount of time at each place. It was something different to experience from Anaheim. The bus driver was South African and made the tour with his jokes.
Una gran experiencia. Bellisimos paisajes y si no hubiera sido por este tour, no hubiésemos conocido esos bellos lugares. La guía muy gentil.
We loved Newport Beach and the boat trip round the harbor. This was the reason for us to take the trip as we had never heard of the program O.C. We would have preferred more time at Newport Beach at lunchtime and less time at Fashion Island.
I loved Newport beach and the harbour cruise. I wanted more time at the beach and less time at Fashion Island- 3 hours there was way too long.
I think this trip is worth while for two reasons: 1) there is a palm reader down by the water where you catch the boat who's pretty cool, and 2) going to Fashion Show Mall. The boat ride is cool, seeing all the houses and who the belonged to, but there's not much to do with the OC show, just a few locations. It could use some more OC content that's for sure.
The Tour Operator I think oversold this tour, not much sightseeing the bus driver is your commentator on a 20 yr old bus with a poor sound system. Tour is a trip to south coast mall and that's it.
The boat trip was short and sweet.
No OC Experience here.
Although we had a terrific driver for this tour it certainly did not offer the O.C. Experience as per the US TV show which all of the passengers on tour were expecting. The driver was informative as far as real estate and information on Orange County itself as he was a local but you can imagine the disappointment of our 15 year old daughter, an absolute avid OC fan, and her newfound friends from Canada and Australia on the tour. The driver didn't even know what a Balboa Bar was for goodness sake! Anyone and everyone who has watched the OC knows what a Balboa Bar is! Needless to say the drive now knows, so we managed to educate a local on what the stars of the show rave about and offer to visitors of the OC e.g. Ryan to Teresa in Season 1. The saving grace was meeting a couple of terrific families which made the day enjoyable. For anyone looking to book this tour save yourself the time and money and spend an extra day at Disneyland or other LA activities.
