What you'll do

Host Michiel will meet you the at 7 pm at the McFadden Square Centennial Memorial 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’ll 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’ll take you to our favorite local dive bars and breweries. The first bar is already operating since 1957 and is a local legend! After we enjoyed a microbrewed beer we visit a modern brewery that gives us the opportunity to try different flavors of their signature beer, this varies from a coffee infused beer till rose beer. We think you’ll be happy with the results. Drunk on Californian hospitality, we’ll Uber our way over to the ferry terminal and catch a boat out to lively Balboa Island. We’ll 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 will end here. Your host will be very happy to make recommendations for further exploring Balboa Island tonight and Orange County tomorrow and how to return to the tour start if needed. Welcome to Southern California!
