Highlights

What to expect
  • Cruise the sun-drenched landscape of the California coast during this guided Segway tour of Santa Monica and Venice Beach. These personal transport devices allow you to move quickly across a wide area, allowing you to take in much more than you might see on a typical walking tour. Start your Segway excursion from the Hotel Casa Del Mar along the Pacific Ocean, leaving at your chosen departure time with your guide. The trip kicks off with a quick safety orientation on proper Segway-riding technique. These personal transport devices are relatively simple to get the hang of, allowing you to start your exploration quickly. Zoom along the surface of the Santa Monica Pier, taking a few moments to absorb the atmosphere of its street performers, many retail storefronts, restaurants, and amusement park rides. During your ride along the Pier, you can also see the Aquarium and Pacific Park. Proceed next to the California Heritage Museum, situated along Santa Monica’s Main Street, admiring the area’s luxurious homes while en route. Move on to Venice, a unique coastal community designed by developer Abbot Kinney to resemble the canals of its Italian namesake. Today the town plays host to a cutting edge arts scene, vibrant beach culture, and plenty of bohemian atmosphere. Stop by the Venice Beach Boardwalk, where you can observe the famous weightlifters of ‘Muscle Beach,’ check out some of the numerous skate and surf shops and enjoy the colorful street art that lines the boardwalk’s many façades.  As you ride, listen for anecdotes and commentary from your guide. Hear a variety of insights about Santa Monica and Venice’s history, culture and residents. When you get hungry, dig into your complimentary chips and bottled water. You should also feel free to stop for photos at any time. Finish your Segway ride back at your starting point.

UNIQUE AND FUN TOUR!
Definite highlight of our visit!!! Our tour guide Matt was AWESOME! Initially we were a little nervous about handling a Segway, but with Matt’s calm guidance and a few spins around a parking lot, we were ready for adventure! Matt made the whole experience so fun and interesting. We started by going to the famous Santa Monica Pier and learning a bit about its history. Then we headed back along the bike path that runs beside the beach towards Venice. Matt would pull us over periodically to describe an event, an interesting a tidbit, something humorous, making the whole outing come alive. It was a trip through time as we learned about efforts to make Venice Beach a destination which welcomes all no matter what race, age, or background. Muscle beach, celebrities, wall murals, graffiti art, skateboarders extraordinaire and beginners, music, the canals of LA’s Venice...it is all there. The time flew! Thanks Matt for such a great experience!!! We highly recommend this tour for something unique and a ton of fun!!

A great way to tour Venice Beach
My wife always tells me that I don’t plan enough fun things when we go on vacation. I booked this excursion for us and our son and we will all be talking about it for a long time. Venice Beach is a one of a kind must see and this was a great way to see it. I would do it again.

After I booked this tour, I found some cheaper segaway tours around the Santa Monica area. But after I took this tour, I am so glad I didn’t cancel it just because of the price. This tour was so fun. I had a great time, especially around the Venice area. Joel and Micah are very friendly and fun. Love them both and love this tour. Thank you very much for a great experience!

We did the best tour 2 Mums with 2 15 year olds. Segway through Santa Monica and onto Venice Beach. Mica and Joel were amazing. We saw parts of LA that we never expected to see. Thanks so much. Highly recommended.

Best day in LA so far
Mica & Joel hosted our tour today from Santa Monica to Venice beach on segways. We were travelling with 2x 15yo boys and we couldn’t have picked a better activity.
Mica and Joel were friendly, informative and such fun. Highlight for our boys was definitely adding their mark spray painting.
Thanks boys for a great couple of hours. Highly recommended way to spend an afternoon.

Brilliant tour, great guide
We booked the Santa Monica to Venice tour. It was great as we were the only 4 people on the tour so it was a very personal experience. Our guide (Micah) was spot on. Just the right amount of stops and chat. I struggled a bit with confidence with the Segway and he ended up towing me for most of it and was more than happy to do so for which I was very thankful. The extra touches such as the water and snacks plus the stops he threw in (I won’t spoil them) were great and he didn’t rush us once. It’s relatively expensive but all of us thought it was worth every single cent. By far the best way to see the Santa Monica and Venice coastline and HIGHLY recommended.

Dear Darren, We specialize in providing personal experiences just like yours, so I'm glad we lived up to your expectations! I think everyone should try a Segway at least once, and it's absolutely normal not to be comfortable with them right off the bat. You tried something new! I'm very glad that you had a good time despite the machine trouble and that Micah was a great host. I hope we get a chance to host you again in the future on another one of our tours. Sincerely, Kenneth

Segways were so much fun and the tour was great
Kenny the owner had suggested early morning so we did that and it was great. Not crowded at all. Micah our tour guide was terrific and made the tour really fun. We saw everything we wanted to see. The piers, the canals, muscle beach, volleyball and more. Our two teenagers loved it too. Highly recommend!

I am so glad that you took me up on the early morning suggestion for your experience and that had such a great time exploring with Micah -- We would be happy to welcome you back on "another" fun experience anytime....maybe next time at our office in San Diego. Thanks so much for sharing your experience with the world of travelers here on TripAdvisor and for booking with us! I hope that you have a fabulous rest of your Summer and safe travels too!

Venice Beach by Segway is a must do!
Jul 2019 • Family
We absolutely loved our segway tour of the Santa Monica Pier and Venice Beach. We were able to see so much on the segway that we just would not have had time for on foot - and our tour guide, Micah, was super knowledgeable about the area, the history and customized our tour to suit our interests. We visited landmarks we might otherwise have missed - including the local venice canals, the piers, souvenir shopping and more. This was my first segway tour and I would definitely do it again. Hands down a highlight of our time in L.A.

Thank you so much for this absolutely awesome review. Segway-ing at the beach is like driving a Rolls Royce on the boardwalk and we get to see all the best sights between Santa Monica and Venice Beach. It is like nowhere else on planet earth! You cannot beat how much fun it is to explore and we are so happy that you chose to tour with us. Micah is such a huge asset to our company and he is one of the best tour guides here. I am thrilled at your feedback about him and in no way surprised. Thanks again for taking the time to share your experience with the world of travelers here on Facebook. It was our honor and pleasure to host you. We look forward to hosting you on "another" fun adventure back here in LA or down at our office in San Diego. All The Best, Kenneth

Seems like this USA holiday we’ve been Segwaying loads! It truly is an excellent way to see many attractions in a limited amount of time and this tour was no exception.
We had an awesome glide with Micah through Santa Monica and Venice Beach where there was so much going on during the Public Holiday. Thank you so very much.
You’re a fantastic guide with so much of local knowledge and it was awesome Segway-ing with you.
Loads of fun!!

He is an absolutely wonderful person and an excellent tour guide too. We would love to show you around other unique parts of the city next time you visit or even down at our office in San Diego. Take care and we look forward to hosting you on "another" adventure soon! Kenneth L.
