Why Us?

Save Time.
Today there is a a lot of online information about places to see and things to eat. These thousands of voices often contradict each other. We know this town, we've eaten here for decades and we save you precious time by going to the places that matter and avoiding the ones that are just hype.

We Are Not Touristy.
If you want to see more of Santa Cruz than the Boardwalk and the Wharf come along with us. We don't visit the crowded tourist spots. We take you off the beaten path and experience food, history and architecture only locals know about. We are not corny or touristy. If you typically avoid tours, this tour is for you.

A Proven Track Record.
We are laser focused on great Santa Cruz experiences and have been for seven years. Almost every tour has a return guest who brought a friend along. Our guests have given us the highest possible rating on TripAdvisor and Yelp.

Local & Knowledgeable Guides.
Our guides have lived here for three decades and they love local food and history. Why wander around the tourist spots by yourself when you can meet up with us? There's really no better way to live like a local than joining one of our tours.

Enhance Your Stay After Your Tour.
We'll take you to the places you may not find on your own. Tour with us early in your visit and you will know exactly where to go and what eateries to go back to for the rest of your stay.
