The Ultimate Land & Sea Excursion!

Our Coastal Tour gives you a rich historical overview of our sun-drenched county and fabulous coastline of the California Riveria as you travel along the coast. We will cruise the Pacific Coast Highway making our first stop at Crystal Cove, one of Orange County’s original and most pristine coastal communities. We continue north to Surf City USA, Huntington Beach. Here you will get to stroll along Main Street, the classic pier or along the avenues with surf monuments and surf shops. Next, you will enjoy Newport Beach with its multi-million dollar homes and yachts while discovering Balboa Island and enjoying lunch at one of its many boutique cafes. Heading back down PCH we make our way to the gem of Orange County, Laguna Beach. Here you will have a chance to wander and explore this lovely seaside village best known for its white-sand beaches, world-renowned art galleries, and an iconic downtown full of chic boutiques and locally-owned restaurants. We end the day in Dana Point Harbor where you will hop on a whale-watching vessel and enjoy an afternoon on the water getting to view some of the most beautiful sea creatures!

Orange County/PCH Tour + Whale Watching

Excellent experience and tour! Michael was our guide and he had a vast knowledge of Orange County and the history. We visited many places around Orange Country and got to experience "can't miss" sights. This is a great option for anyone who wants to see Orange Country and explore. I felt as if I learned and saw so much.

Joe was very knowledgeable and even personalized the tour a little. We had a smashing day visiting Laguna Beach, Crystal Cove, Marina Del Rey and others all of which enhanced our holiday no end. On the way back, Joe was flexible enough to take us to a lovely spot to spend the evening at Newport Beach rather than a return to our hotel.

Orange County Beach Tour/LA Tour

We toured both LA and Orange County beaches with Best Coast Tours last week. Joe and Michael are outstanding hosts providing historical information regarding the sites along with just the right mix of pop culture. Not only are the extremely knowledgeable about the area, they are fun! We are so glad to have picked Best Coast Tours to introduce us to California.
