    • The best of the ‘Birthplace of California’

      Bike to the best sights the ‘Birthplace of California’ has to offer on a guided day tour of spectacular San Diego, with the added flexibility of bike rental! This 2.5 hour cycle around ‘America’s Finest City’ perfectly captures the exuberance of sun-kissed San Diego, leading you on a leisurely journey of discovery from the gregarious Gaslamp Quarter to the blissful Balboa Park. Your electric bike takes the effort out of the adventure, so you can be ‘at one’ with the ‘Beach Paradise’!

      Your engaging electric bike tour gets going in the Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego, a dynamic downtown neighborhood alive with the charisma of its cocktail lounges, effervescent nightlife, and lively young crowds. Listen to your guide as they recount the rich history of this quirky quarter, home to the Spreckels and Balboa Theaters, as well as Horton Plaza Park, where locals sip their coffees under swaying palm shadows or by the interactive fountain.

      Biking on to the Embarcadero, discover a breathtaking view of San Diego’s mesmerizing marina district. Here, the sunlight sparkles off the yachts as they move serenely around their moorings. Home to the Seaport Village, Headquarters, and Waterfront Park, the Embarcadero is not only a bustling cruise-ship hub, but also a location to dine out, sun-bathe, and sightsee in opulent surroundings.

      You’ll discover the USS Midway Museum on a pedal to the Navy Pier, where the Midway aircraft carrier is on display. The longest-serving US aircraft carrier of the 20th century, the Midway played a crucial role in the Cold War. Just a short ride away is the Greatest Generation Walk, a series of statues and monuments dedicated to San Diego’s military and tuna fishing history. You’ll further your appreciation for San Diego’s heritage as you pedal to the Tuna Pier via Billionaire Row.

      Your bicycle tour takes you on to Balboa Park, an unmissable, ever-changing urban oasis of fascinating flora, from the tropical Palm Canyon to the exotic Alcazar Garden. Watch as the shadows of towering palm fronds disappear beneath your bike wheels as you pedal past koi carp ponds, bubbling streams, and beautiful butterfly havens. You’ll enjoy the blissful serenity of the Japanese Friendship Garden, honoring the friendship between San Diego and its sister city, Yokohama.

      Here, within Balboa, your e-bike tour reaches its flamboyant finale as you encounter the Casa del Prado, a collection of resplendent reconstructed buildings, each boasting exquisitely ornate exteriors. Their gleaming facades, regal against the California sky, and shaded by palm trees, offer an unforgettable final stop on your scintillating San Diego day tour.

        Great way to start our vacation in San Diego!

        · Best of San Diego E-Bike Tour

        From the moment we walked up until the tour was over the staff was super friendly and gave us an engaging tour! The e-bikes were an amazing way to experience the city and our guide was super helpful and knowledgeable about the city! He gave us great recommendations for things to do and see. With two teen girls with us you never know how it’s going to go, but the both had a great time! My husband even said that it was the best tour he has ever been on and trust me when I say we have been on a lot of tours all around the IS and abroad!

        Great Tour to Overview a great city.

        · Best of San Diego E-Bike Tour

        The tour provides a great overview of San Diego - this should be the first thing you do when you arrive in SD to be able to orient yourself within the City. The tour covers a lot of ground and places that and will help you organize your time for the balance of the visit. If this is the only thing you do in SD - you will have seen up close the best that San Diege has to offer in 2.5 hours or so.

        Our guide Zach was great and very knowledgeable.

        Amazing way to see San Diego

        A great way to start off a vacation. We got an overview of San Diego then picked what we wanted to spend more time on another day. Lots of history to learn about on your. We highly recommend. You don’t need to be a bike enthusiast. The bike does all the work.
