Your local guide will meet you in a central location in Newport Beach, excited to help you enjoy a great night out.

California sunsets are something to behold, so before the night closes in we head to the end of the Pier for a mesmerizing sunset over the Pacific Ocean.

Then it’s time to start getting the rounds in! We take you to one of our favorite local dive bars and then on to a charming microbrewery where you can taste different flavors of their beers. Try one of their locally brewed IPAs or the famous Chihuahua Cerveza — we think you’ll be happy with the results.

Drunk on Californian hospitality, we Uber our way over to the ferry terminal and catch a boat out to lively Balboa Island. We take a stroll around the neighborhood and then enjoy a drink in a popular local inn that boasts regular live music sessions with local artists.

Your tour ends here, but your guide will be very happy to make recommendations for further exploring Balboa Island tonight and Orange County tomorrow — please just ask!

Welcome to California!
