Recent Photos of this Tour
From the comfortable seat of your bike, you’ll ride along Santa Monica's world-famous beach to the Marion Davies Guesthouse, past the Santa Monica Pier and through Venice to its picturesque canals. While you soak up the sun, sand, surf and ocean breezes, you'll be accompanied by a story-telling guide full of interesting information about the local art, architecture and history of the area.
The bike allows you to choose traditional pedaling with six gears or using the electric motor power (with the flick of your wrist), which puts the power completely in your control. Or use a combination of both. All bikes are equipped with state-of-the-art disc brakes, lithium ion batteries and a 500-watt motor to ensure that you’ll keep up with the group.

The day started with us stuck in terrible traffic. I called to ask if they wanted to move us to a later time and Steve said that they would wait for us. We got a late start but Barbara, our guide, asked if we had time to extend the ending time since we got a late start. We were thrilled that we didn't have to miss anything. We rode through Santa Monica, along the bike path of Santa Monica Beach and then through Venice Beach and the canals. Barbara had us make several stops so that she could explain the history of sights along the way as well as some pop culture. She also took several pictures of us. The bikes were great! They were easy to handle and we loved having the option of using the electric setting to help get us up some of the steeper inclines. We had a fantastic time!

The tour was an excellent and fun way to see Santa Monica and Venice. Loved the electric bikes - easy to use, heaps of fun and you really don't have to pedal if you don't want so fitness is not an issue. Barb was very knowledgeable and kept the pace so that you really could have a look around, enjoy the sights and feel the sun on your face. It was a pleasant way to spend an afternoon. The office is also conveniently located near public transport and the local shopping centre so we stayed on after the tour and checked these out too.
