Your beach tour begins in central Los Angeles, where your guide joins 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, 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.

The trip was ok and we enjoyed the ride. The best part was that 2 of us were the only ones on the ride, so it felt like a private tour. The person who was with us was very knowledgeable and courteous and funny.

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.
