Full description

Join a private sightseeing tour of Malibu with a wine tasting bonus and discover it all in a 1972 vintage VW van with hippie vibes both inside and out. Visit Point Dume and other photo-worthy spots along the way. Start your trip by meeting with your tour guide at the Santa Monica Pier, where you'll be able to take cool photos with the van, jump in, and head towards Malibu.

Drive along the picturesque coastline towards the north end of the town where the celebrity homes and secluded beaches are located. Stop at a few viewpoints where everyone will be able to take pictures with the van and Malibu landscapes.

On the way, visit Point Dume with its breathtaking views of the cliffs and the ocean. After spending some time there, stop at the famous Malibu Pier to take a walk and capture these moments with your phone or camera.

From here, take advantage of uninterrupted views of the Santa Monica Mountains. It is always fun to watch the many surfers riding the breaks of Surfrider Beach. The tour ends at the Rosenthal wine tasting room where you will be offered a flight of four different local wines, along with a cheese, salami, and cracker plate.

    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!

    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!
