      This private guided tour includes bike rental and is designed to prioritize your preferences while offering a unique, local insight into life in Santa Barbara. The city is renowned for breathtaking landscapes and you may wish to spend a few hours on this day tour riding along the area's splendid sandy beaches and the rolling hills of Montecito. Thanks to Santa Barbara's Mediterranean-like climate, you'll be able to enjoy rich landscapes and clement weather whatever season you take your bicycle tour.

      Visitors to Santa Barbara are often struck by its surprisingly European feel, thanks to the Spanish colonial architecture that prevails. Despite the old grandeur of many of its buildings, much of the city was rebuilt following a devastating earthquake in 1925. If you're interested in the city's architecture and history, your guide can arrange a stop at the Santa Barbara Mission, established in 1786 and still standing as a popular sightseeing spot. The building served as an agricultural and religious center for the area during the Spanish colonization of California, and today, its whitewashed buildings house a friary, a retreat, and a museum.

      Cycling along Stearns Wharf is a steadfast sightseeing highlight in Santa Barbara. It was first constructed in the 19th century and re-imagined as a recreational pier in the 1980s. Today, Stearns Wharf offers boat cruises, the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History Sea Center, and plenty of shops and galleries. Alternatively, if you're indulging in gourmet dining and retail therapy during your trip, cycle along State Street on this city tour to soak up the atmosphere of this downtown hub and to get your guide's insider recommendations. In short, the city of Santa Barbara offers no end of sightseeing opportunities to be explored on this family-friendly day tour.
