What you'll do

[Note: Your Tour Guide, Laura, is fully covid-vaccinated].
Come along on a walking tour of Capitola-by-the-Sea where, at a relaxing pace, you’ll learn about this colorful, lively and charming town. With Laura as your Guide, you’ll see the sights missed by most visitors.....I’ll show you the hidden back streets, stairways and paths which show off our local architecture as well as the breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean.

At 4:00 p.m., we depart on our walk around the village. The walking portion will last about 1 ½ hours and is about 2 1/2 miles in length. You will see hidden streets, paths and art, typically known only to locals. And you’ll understand why people have been vacationing in Capitola for almost 150 years!

The tour finishes in the heart of the Village where there are several wine bars specializing in fine California wine, most with outdoor patios. You might want to stay and enjoy the evening by taking a sunset walk on the beach, or having dinner at a local restaurant. Overall, you’ll come away with a local’s experience and feel the friendly, surfer-vibe of Capitola.

(If you prefer a different start time, or would like to modify the tour to meet your specific interests, I’m happy to do that. Please contact me to discuss).

Our tour guide was very nice, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I knew nothing about Capitola except that it has colorful buildings and I learned a lot! It was a beautiful walk and we had a great time.

We LOVED this walking tour. Laura is a charming and knowledgeable guide. She shared stories about Capitola and its history, showed us photos to help bring history to life and took us on many interesting out of the way streets. The tour featured spectacular views and photo opportunities. After taking this walking tour I also felt more confident in exploring the town and nearby area. Laura was also very responsive. All in all, this was a wonderful experience and we can't recommend it highly enough.

I learned more about Capitola than expected. Laura also had older images of certain parts in Capitola. It was really cool to be standing in some of those same spots.

Really pleasant experience. All 4 of us--from 6 to 50 + equally enjoyed the slow storytelling walk through beautiful Capitola. Laura was great with our young children.

I am a solo traveler and this was was a great way to learn about the secrets and gems of Capitola with a local and to connect with a human being during my travels. Laura had lots of tips and information about the town's history. I didn't think it was strenuous and got about 7,500 steps while having fun. I ended up at one of the restaurants she suggested which just became of my top favorite restaurants because of its beauty and quality. Thank you for your hospitality!

We were blown away by this walking tour through Capitola with Laura. She guided us through one of the most beautiful towns I’d ever seen as if we were two lifelong friends. There’s so much to see in the densely beautiful Capitola — it packs ridiculous charm into it’s meager 1.7 square miles. On vacation I’m always searching for moments that fully immerse me in the present moment. This tour did exactly that and I would recommend it to anyone. P.S. The wine and charcuterie from the local bar were delicious — the perfect cherry on the cake.
