    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.

    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

    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

    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

    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.

    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

    There's nowhere in Los Angeles quite like Santa Monica and Venice Beach! We are beyond delighted to hear you had a wonderful experience touring the area with Micah. 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.
