Saturday at the Beach - Our family had a fantastic experience riding along the boardwalk and canals with the very personable Stephan last weekend. He shares his passion and great depth of knowledge of the Venice area with really fun stories, personal insights and little-known interesting facts. We’ve done many bike tours and I’d say this overall ride was nice / quite easy and the bikes are super comfy.

The best bike tour of Venice - We did this tour as a family of 2 adults and 2 daughters age 12 and 14. Our tour guide Stef knew more about Venice Beach than most locals, being a local himself. He was absolutely brilliant. We went for miles, here there and everywhere, stopping to listen to little nuggets of information of all sorts from local artists to the history of Venice. It was a fascinating tour, the last thing we did on our 2 week tour of California and it was easily up there as one of the main highlights. There are many bikes for rent along the beach, but I doubt there are better guides than Stef!

A perfect choice for tour around Venice city! - A perfect choice that I made! Anthony made the perfect 1st day of my entire travels starting with explanation of the history of Venice and optimized services with kindness! His warm kindness dissolved my fear of traveling a new country alone and provided me a chance to enjoy the cities with an open mind! This bicycle tour not only is fun, energetic, and informative but also let you enjoy the beauty of the Venice city with breeze!

A lovely bike ride tour exploring Venice Beach - A fantastic way to explore Venice Beach. Anthony knew so much about the history and took us to all the cool places. My kids (13 and 11) and husband loved shooting a few hoops on the Venice Beach courts, watching the skaters at the famous skate park, and biking to Santa Monica Pier and around Venice. A great way to explore a new place. Anthony was a fab tour guide and it was great getting to know him. He knew so much about the beach and had great stories to tell along the way. My kids said they would like to take the tour again one day.
