Coastal Cities Tour: Visiting Southern California

When visiting Southern California for the first time, it is easy to get caught up in the destruction of Hollywood, Disneyland, and Universal Studios. These attractions possess many touristic qualities and do not highlight the plethora of fun, and entertaining family activities that southern California has to offer. The true natural beauty of southern California beach cities lies within an arm’s length of Los Angeles.

Newport Beach and Laguna Beach

Newport Beach

Newport Beach is the perfect Coastal Cities Tour to spend your day with your friends, family, or significant other.

This area features countless delightful quaint shops and upscale dining options. Possibly the most charming of what Newport Beach has to offer is the Balboa Peninsula. This thin body of land arches out from the mainland bordering the Pacific Ocean, creating its own natural harbor in addition to seven small, man-made islands.

The ambiance of Newport Beach is reminiscent of a never-ending summer day in the coastal 1950s. Children run around freely while the adults lay back, recharge, and escape from the stresses of everyday life. Newport Beach’s air of relaxation is contagious. Spending a few days in the area can do wonders for a stressed and overwhelmed spirit.

Newport Beach and Laguna Beach

Classic Experiences will provide a knowledgeable and captivating tour guide to lead you in the exploration of all that Newport Beach has to offer. This includes the tranquil and serene Balboa Peninsula and Balboa Island. Guests will instantly feel a sense of immersion in the iconic “Cali” atmosphere while exploring what the island has to offer.

Laguna Beach

Laguna Beach is a laid-back coastal city tour adorned with lush landscapes, tide pools, and a scenic coastline worthy of a postcard or magazine. The beach community consists of nine square miles of land and is sandwiched between the Great Pacific and Laguna Canyon.

Newport Beach and Laguna Beach

Laguna Beach is positioned at the peak of a cliffside bluff, offering a beautiful view of the ocean-hugging paths and park below. The park features strategically placed beaches, admirable sculptures, and works of art, and brilliant artists who create custom portraits along the pathway.

Itinerary

After traveling along the Pacific Coast, we will get off the highway to have access to Newport Beach, Balboa Island, and Laguna Beach. These destinations can be best described as relaxing and idyllic beach towns that will immediately submerge you in the laid-back “Cali” atmosphere.

Balboa Peninsula

The Balboa Peninsula off the coast of Balboa Beach pays homage to a perfect view of the shoreline, surfers, and sunbathers spanning for miles. The Balboa Pavilion, situated on Main Street, is world renowned for its Big Band jazz musicians such as Count Basie and Benny Goodman who were particularly famous in the 1930s and 1940s.

Newport Beach and Laguna Beach

Balboa Peninsula Ferry may be used for a convenient and scenic five-minute ride across the water to the wonderful Balboa Island. This island is a one-of-a-kind, man-made landmark home to the delicious frozen banana dessert. Frozen bananas are tasty treats typically dipped in a variety of toppings such as chocolate, nuts, and sprinkles. Frozen bananas and frozen banana stands have been iconic stables of Balboa Island for almost 75 years.

Corona del Mar

Corona del Mar is a gorgeous, tranquil beach often featured in books, magazines, television, and movies. The beach and its natural landscapes have been included in episodes of Gilligan’s Island along with Disney television productions. In addition to its beautiful landscape, Corona del Mar is home to windy roads, a scenic lookout point, and breathtaking sunsets.Newport Beach and Laguna Beach

Fashion Island

Fashion Island is a magnificent place that rings true to its name. The ritzy boutiques, cafes, and restaurants fuse elegant Italian style with cool Californian fashion. Fashion Island embodies the sophisticated luxury and coastal chic culture of Newport Beach. Fashion Island offers more than just shopping. The island is home to items and experiences that are completely unique to Newport Beach and cannot be found anywhere else. Newport Beach is ready to shape and inspire your own fabulous style.

  • star ratingMy family recently went on a 3-week trip to the United States. Our experience was phenomenal and was the perfect way to conclude our trip. The itinerary of our tour included the Hollywood sign, walk of fame, the celebrity houses of Beverly Hills and many more. Our guide Alexander was incredibly informative and highly knowledgable and truly made the experience! We took 20 minutes to stroll along the walk of fame and visit the famous Hotel Roosevelt. Alongside the incredible sight-seeing experience, the car did not disappoint. We were greeted with a fabulous red Cadillac, topping off the luxury experience. When in Los Angeles, this certainly isn't an opportunity to miss!

    star ratingGeorge toured us in his Cadillac for 4 hours in L.A. to discover our sights of choice as this was our first visit to L.A. We got a great feel of the city by going to Hollywood, Grifgith park, Farmer’s market, Beverly Hills and other places. George was providing great insights as we were driving through the streets and sights, and took great pictures of us.
    Such a wonderful experience which we recommend to anyone who wants to « feel » the city!
    Thank you George and Classic Experiences for having made this day special!

    star ratingWe can’t say enough good things about Alexander and the tour he gave us around LA, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, etc. He was incredibly knowledgeable, fun, funny and friendly - and had extensive insight into everywhere we went. We did a four hour tour and extended for 90 mins more because we didn’t want it to end. If you are looking for a great tour and don’t know where to begin - look no further than here!

    star ratingWow, this is the proper LA Experience! We got so lucky to have Cameron as our trusty know all guide and driver. He picked us up in a classic Cadillac Convertible and immediately made us feel comfortable. We wanted to feel the old glamour of LA and Cameron put us right in the middle of it. He was a very funny personable guy and had the most amazing inside stories including personally knowing Oscar winners.
    we all just felt like close friends at the end of it. If you want to experience Hollywood the way it was meant to be do this tour! And ask for Cam! You will have the time of your life.

    star ratingWe very much enjoyed the tour of Beverly Hills, Bel Air and Hollywood with our knowledgeable guide Alex. He’s a safe driver and has something to say about almost every boulevard we drive along, every landmark building, knows about the properties of old and new stars, about the cinemas, music clubs and restaurants. We stopped for a photo shoot at the Hollywood sign, had time for a little break at the Beachwood Café - all very relaxed. Good thing he had a warm blanket for the passengers in the backseat, as our February Tuesday tour was blessed with great, but chilly weather. More than once, we were photographed by others - probably because of the well-kept blue 1970 Cadillac De Ville Convertible.

  • star ratingI had an unforgettable tour with classic experiences. I would definitely recommend them for out of towners or LA locals looking to discover hidden gems and experience the classic cars.

    CAR: Our tour was in a beautiful blue Cadillac Convertible (I believe the year was 1973). It had a white leather interior and wooden paneling. It was in incredible condition and very clean! If you need anything don’t worry, there will be water bottles, sunscreen and a throw blanket handy if you need them. Fellow classic car enthusiasts drove by and waved at us while we were out on our tour! This was my first time in a convertible and it was unreal.

    TOUR: There are so many places you can go on your tour! In just 2 hours we saw beautiful houses, went down Rodeo Drive and Sunset blvd, saw famous hotels like the Beverly Wilshire and the Beverly Hills Hotel, museums like the LACMA and the Oscar Museum and got some incredible photos! Incidentally, there were other tour busses and vans in the area so some of the places we visited are popular tourist areas. Other places like the "Rapunzel House" seemed to be hidden gems. My favorite spot was the Will Rogers memorial park. Our tour guide took us there so my daughters could see the turtles and ducks.

    TOUR GUIDE: our tour guide Cameron was absolutely spectacular. Such a nice down to earth person and a pleasure to spend the afternoon with. He knew where EVERYTHING cool was and has great ideas of places to go if you don't have a specific itinerary in mind.

    SERVICE: Overall, everyone I spoke with planning this tour was courteous and great to work with. I had excellent service and would absolutely encourage you to book a tour. Like I said, if you have friends in from out of town and you want to show them the real LA, this is the most impressive way.

    Thanks for hosting my tour, guys!

    star ratingMy friend and I had a one-of-a-kind experience on our tour with Classic Cars and our guide Alex! I would definitely recommend exploring LA in this special and unique way.

    I had a friend visiting me from New York and wanted to plan something different for seeing the city. Alex arrived on time with an amazing car and incredible enthusiasm. He was very flexible to tailoring the tour to what we wanted to see. Best of all, he was deeply knowledgeable about LA, the best sights and it’s history. We both had a great time and can’t wait to book another trip soon.

  • star ratingWe had such a great day with Alex, our very knowledgeable, personable and friendly driver/tour guide.
    We went to places that can be visited by anyone, but the difference is how we got to these sights, the conversation we had along the way and that our family felt like we were getting a very special experience that was private and unique.
    The tour can be tailored just for you and Alex made sure we saw what we wanted to see.
    The add on of the gorgeous car is icing on the cake. I lost count of the waves we got on our tour and it was so cool seeing so many people smile and point at the car.
    Thank you so much Alex. We had a wonderful day and this will be a very long memory for our family.
