“I was the only traveller booked on the Night Life experience in Santiago. Spending the evening with Nikolas was great fun. We went to places I never would have found by myself, nor had the courage to enter alone. Nikolas taught me a lot about local culture, was great company and found me a safe taxi at the end of the night. PS. The "volcano" drink was brutal!”

Your local guide will meet you at the lifeguard tower, which is like something out of that iconic 90s TV show — Baywatch! 

After a brief introduction to this truly stunning corner of California, we’ll take a stroll through the downtown district of Laguna Beach and stop to admire some incredible street art, produced by a well-known local artist. 

The USA is famous the world over for its iconic candy bars, so next up, were going to take you to a popular Californian candy store that is certain to take you back in time, stocking all sorts of weird, wonderful and world-famous candy. This is a great place to taste a small slice of Americana and pick up souvenirs and gifts that your friends and family will LOVE! 

As our sugar high kicks in, we will loop back to the beach and admire pretty murals and street art along the beach path. Feeling thirsty? Time for a coffee or tea stop at a local café, housed inside an art gallery. 

After that, we’ll hop on local transport for a 15-minute bus ride to the stunning beach cottages of Crystal Cove’s historic district, built as a seaside colony between the 1920s and 1940s. Crystal Cove’s story started out like a Hollywood movie, literally, as it began in 1918 as a movie set! We will wander around in awe until we get to a famous Californian diner where we will stop to enjoy a real SoCal treat: The Best. Milkshake. Ever.! 

Then we’ll hop back to Laguna Beach on the bus and end the tour where we started. Before you go, don’t forget to ask your guide for tips on what else to see, do and eat in this beautiful part of California!
