We offer free and private paid tours of the Waterfront, Funk Zone and Old Town each lasting about 1.5 to 2 hours. Private tours are $25 per person.
We have been in business since 2017 and are the #1 walking tour in Santa Barbara. Our free public tours were inspired by the tip-based tours commonly found in Europe.
Our calendar of free public tours are shown under “Reservations”. If you don’t see a day on the calendar of our public tours that works for you, please contact us to inquire about arranging a private tour. If you do take one of our free tours, please remember that our guides rely on your generous gratuities as their compensation. We work hard to make your experience worth every penny.
All tours are easily walkable. Some seating is provided on both the Waterfront and Funk Zone tours. Tour size rarely exceeds ten people which allows for more interaction.
It is not uncommon for people to comment that our tours rank among the best they have encountered. Whether it’s learning about how our harbor was constructed, the events that ushered in the City’s unique architectural style, or the founding of Lockheed aircraft in Santa Barbara, rest assured our tours are informative, entertaining and fun. Considerable time was spent researching the content for each tour, uncovering fascinating facts that even the locals don’t know about.
