Are you interested in taking a tour of Los Angeles, but don’t want to sit in a stuffy bus in traffic? Take a bike or hike tour with Bikes and Hikes LA instead!
At Bikes and Hikes LA, we encourage our guests to skip the bus tours and to experience LA on our daily bike and hike tours! We have multiple options for the best sightseeing tours in Los Angeles; and they’re all outdoors.
Our motto is for guests to experience LA, rather than drive past it. We launch a number of daily hiking and bike tours, as well as infinite options for private outdoor tours, VIP LA Activities, and Los Angeles Teambuilding Events.

Here are 8 Reasons to take an Outdoor LA Tour! 

You’ll get up-close and personal with all of the most famous locations in LA, instead of driving past them.

Our daily bike and hike tours are perfect for families and independent travelers looking to get outside and explore Los Angeles. Instead of riding on a crowded bus, our tours feature guided group activities through Hollywood, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Griffith Park, and all over LA. Rather than hiding behind metal and glass on a bus, smell the gardens, soak up the sun, and spot a celeb or two in the great outdoors of Los Angeles. Our bike tours offer hop on/hop off options with plenty of stops for walking, taking photos, and soaking up the top LA attractions featured on the tours, and allow guests to get an incredible workout, rather than sitting on a bus…and of course, sitting in traffic.group posing in front of Hollywood sign

Located in the heart of Hollywood, Runyon Canyon is one of the most popular places to hike in LA, and convenient for travelers looking to explore such Hollywood destinations as the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Dolby Theatre, the Sunset Strip, and more.
