What You Can Expect

Santa Monica and Venice Beach Tour from Los Angeles

Los Angeles Coast Tour to Santa Monica and Venice Beach

Your 3-hour beach tour will begin in central Los Angeles, where your guide will join you. Hop in your coach and head to the famous Santa Monica Pier, the point which marks the end of the old Route 66.

Stroll around the sunny waterfront as your guide provides historical background on the amusement rides. Continue by foot to the open-air district of the Third Street Promenade, where you can window shop as you pass boutiques and popular stores.

Afterward, you’ll hop back in the car and drive to the Venice Beach Boardwalk. This celebrated area is truly a treat for the senses, as you pass street performers and eccentric shops and bars while the Pacific Ocean sparkles in the background. Learn about the celebrities who have frequented these offbeat streets, such as Jim Morrison, who resided here during the heart of the counterculture.

You’ll then pass through Marina del Rey and the trendy seaside residences of the Pacific Palisades. Soak up stunning views of the ocean and enjoy complimentary chips and bottled water on board. Your tour will conclude at your original departure point.

Zack was great! We had a beautiful day and were able to get out and walk all around both Venice Beach and the Santa Monica Pier. Zack didn't rush us yet we had plenty of time to enjoy the day! Thanks, Zack!

This tour was absolutely amazing. Hal was very friendly and knowledgeable. We were lucky enough to meet the owner of a historic shop on the pier, and we even caught sight of a seal or sea lion, I'm not sure. I had an extraordinary time. I plan to try another one of their tours the next time I'm in LA.
