What you'll do

San Juan Capistrano, CA has the oldest street in California! Our experience starts with exploring the historical San Juan Capistrano Mission build in 1776. After we explored the mission for 45 minutes and learned more about Saint Junípero Serra, the Swallows of San Juan and the native Americans we walk through the Los Rios Historic District. Here we will find Adobe houses dating back to 1779 and you be shown hidden gems within the district. At our last stop, we rewind and relax with a wine or a beer at one of the downtown wineries.
Other things to note
Traffic in Southern California is always very challenging, please plan enough time to meet at the start point so the host can offer the experience in time at to the best extent.
