What people are saying about Malibu

I booked this tour as a birthday present for my boyfriend. We had such a fun time. I highly recommend. Although the listing says that this tour could be with up to 6 people, we were the only 2 people on our tour with two surf instructors/organizers. They picked us up at our Airbnb and drove us out to a couple view points along the Malibu coast, including a walk out on the Malibu pier where we were able to grab a coffee. Since we are very much beginners, we headed to a quieter surf spot farther up the coast where the hosts gave us some surf tips and gave us wetsuits and surfboards. We had about 2 hours of surfing before lunch (hot dogs, chips, soda/water). They kindly were even able to accommodate my dietary restrictions (gluten free) and also had vegetarian options if needed. We were able to shower off at the beach and then headed back to our Airbnb in Venice. It was such a unique experience (we loved the van) and we had so much fun!

Vino and vintage VWs - how could you go wrong! The tour around Malibu was amazing and I enjoyed the wine tasting. For me as a solo traveler it was important that everyone was friendly - the atmosphere was nice and the vibes were chill. Stephen, our guide, went above and beyond to make sure we were taking care of and we definitely had the time of our life. So far this tour was the best thing I’ve done in LA!

What an awesome tour of Malibu! Our guide, Alexy, was great! He took us to very beautiful and iconic spots. The wine tasting at Rosenthal’s was a nice experience complete with music, and cool ambiance. Being in the 1972 Volkswagen van, we were a tourist attraction ourselves. What a fun trip. Highly recommended!
