Spanish Twist

Tour Description

Encompassing 1200 acres, with 15 world-class museums, gorgeous gardens, and historic architecture, Balboa Park is one of the largest and oldest cultural parks in the world. Following the quiet bike paths from the north, we take in the scene and enjoy the people watching before heading into the heart of Balboa Park, site of two World’s Fairs. We’ll meander through, taking you to the best photo ops and little known gardens. You’ll see amazing sculptures, flamboyant Roccoco architecture, and learn the backstory of how the park came to be and how important it is to San Diego’s history. Balboa park is truly a treasure where it’s forever springtime, with different flowers blooming all year long, and our Spanish Twist Tour shows you the best of it!

What People Say About this Tour

“Personalized Attentive Tour of Balboa Park!”

“My Husband and I took the Spanish Twist Tour of Balboa Park in late August with Jerit and Cameron. These guys were super attentive to our needs and requests! Before the tour I highlighted in an email that my husband is a novice on the bike and a bit nervous about riding in traffic. I received both emails and proactive calls to make arrangements before the tour, ensuring our version of the tour avoided cars and open roads as much as possible. We also spent some time practicing on these bikes to get comfortable before starting the tour. I really appreciated their taking special care in making us feel safe so we could focus on the fun during the tour!
We really enjoyed learning about this huge park and getting to see so much of it without breaking a sweat on these comfy bikes! Our guides were a joy to hang out with, always asking if we needed more snacks or drinks! I’d definitely look into the La Jolla tour for our next visit to San Diego!”

“Exciting ride through Balboa Park”

We did a tour of Balboa Park on a Saturday morning, which is an excellent way to see both the scenery and the people of SoCal at their finest. Jerit was our tour guide, and after assessing our level of biking experience, took us on a great trip. We covered the park, stopping at times to walk around and check out more areas in depth. The electric bikes are amazing, especially going up hills. I didn’t want to give mine up at the end! I highly recommend this entertaining, educational, adventure.
