“Lulu, our guide for the trip, did a great job showing us around Kyoto. The bikes were well maintained and the course was very enjoyable. We would have missed out on a lot of interesting facts and places had we tried to visit these locations on our own. After the tour she showed us a great ramen restaurant and gave us some advise for our plans after the tour.”

“Tomasz was awesome and supper enthusiastic. You could tell he really had a love for San Sebastian's food and people. Great tour with good food and drinks.”

Your local guide will meet you in a central location in Newport Beach, excited to help you enjoy a great night out.  

California sunsets are something to behold, so before the night closes in we’ll head to the end of the Pier for a mesmerizing sunset over the Pacific Ocean.    

Then it’s time to start getting the rounds in! We’ll take you to one of our favorite local dive bars and then on to a charming microbrewery where you can taste different flavors of their beers. Try one of their locally brewed IPAs or the famous Chihuahua Cerveza — we think you’ll be happy with the results. 

Drunk on Californian hospitality, we’ll Uber our way over to the ferry terminal and catch a boat out to lively Balboa Island. We’ll take a stroll around the neighborhood and then enjoy a drink in a popular local inn that boasts regular live music sessions with local artists. 

Your tour will end here, but your guide will be very happy to make recommendations for further exploring Balboa Island tonight and Orange County tomorrow — please just ask!
