Our E-Bike tour was the best part of our vacation. Barb was so entertaining and enjoyable to talk with and even modified our tour to allow us to enjoy the architecture and art close to the bike trail. If you are ever in the Santa Monica/Venice Beach area we highly recommend her tour. Her knowledge she shares along the way of all the sights just adds so much more to the tour than just cruising up and down the beach. Thanks Barb for such a fun adventure! We can't wait to see the photos.

I highly recommend the electric bike tour. Firstly, the bikes are amazing and so easy to ride. It was a fabulous afternoon enjoying Santa Monica and Venice Beach made even better by our tour guide - Barb. Barb is a well known local, who gives you all the fun facts about the local area and glides through the streets like a true pro. She made it fun, interesting and informative.

The bike tour of Santa Monica and Venice Beach was one of the most fun things we did on our vacation to LA. Barb, our tour guide, was very professional and safety oriented. The electric bikes were awesome - you could ride as normal or fire up the electric battery for an easy ride (no pedaling required)! She also had stops during the tour where she gave us some historical and fun facts about places on our route. Highly recommended!

We loved our tour of Santa Monica and Venice beaches. Mollie was a great guide and it was a good mix of riding and stops for information on the history and the area. Although we pedaled most of the ride, we also liked having the electric bikes for some extra boosts here and there. :)

The pace was perfect. Barb did a great job of preparing us for the ride on the electric bikes and then leading us up and down the beach. Lots of great information about the history of the beach and homes along the beach. Well timed bathroom breaks were very helpful. Plenty of opportunities to stop to take memorable pictures and she took pictures of us as well. Stories about celebrities, tv shows and movies were fun. Would recommend it highly for those who can ride a bike.

My wife and I had a great time on this bike tour. Barb made sure we were up to speed and comfortable with the bikes, then Molly took us out for the tour, going up and down Santa Monica beach and Venice Beach, stopping regularly to give us information and fun history lessons.
She also took some great photos of us on our phones and kept the whole tour fun, interesting, safe and enjoyable.
I would highly recommend this tour to anybody who wants to learn more about the area whilst also enjoying a relaxing bike ride.

Our work team met in Santa Monica for the week, and we were looking for an outdoor activity for a couple of hours to get people out of the meeting room— and Barb's tour ended up being one of the highlights of the week!

She worked with our group to personalize the tour based on our local times; she made sure all the people in the group felt comfortable on the bikes, and provided a great experience overall. We loved every minute of it, and I highly recommend her tour as a team-building activity. Thanks again, Barb!

We had a great time. Chris was a terrific guide. We got some great anecdotes about Santa Monica and Venice. Without a guide, we probably wouldn’t have found the scenic canal parts of Venice. The e-bikes were great for getting over the bridges and towards the end of the trip when we were starting to tire.

We did the small group tour along the boardwalk from Santa Monica to Venice Beach and the Venice canals. Barb was great and frequently stopped to point out different buildings/locations and share a bit of LA’s history. The bikes are easy and fun to ride - would definitely recommend!

Weekday morning ride, there aren’t as many people out. The weather was cool and there was marine fog. Thank goodness bikes are motorized cause I used that feature almost the entire time. It was easy to use and you do get a hands on tutorial before you leave. Bikes have saddle bags for your personal belongings. Many different characters seen throughout the ride. Santa Monica is cleaner and prettier than Venice. Seeing canals was coolest part. Thought we were going to spend a little more time at the Santa Monica Pier. This is a general introduction tour to the area, if you want more time at certain spots you will have to go back. Barb and tour guide (sorry forgot your name) are patient, easy to speak with and knowledgeable. Update to parking: it is $8.00.
