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.

Santa Monica Pier (Pass By)

The iconic Santa Monica Pier is a 100 year old entertainment center on the water. It contains a family amusement park, several restaurants, fair-themed food booths, an arcade, and is always busy with public concert, movies, and events.

Muscle Beach Venice (Pass By)

Muscle Beach started in 1934, primarily with gymnastics, and has evolved in to the current outdoor weightlifting gym. It is considered one of the key contributors in attracting professional bodybuilders and strength lifters.

It was brilliant. Once you accept there will be feedback from the runners, cyclists and walkers - you know you can just Segway past without any effort. Stand tall and enjoy the experience.

Best fun I've had in tears. It's too bad the Segway's are having a hard time on the beach area as they can be used, and enjoyed by people who can't walk a lot like myself. Took tour with my granddaughter age 14, and enjoyed every minute and I'm 70.
