The Hollywood Sign Hike & COMEDY Tour
My friends JB, Elko, Jon and I are comedians and actors who have done some work on NBC, ABC, and even Jimmy Kimmel Live! We're just 3 dudes trying to make it in LA. We're gonna tell you approx 3000 jokes (some dad-related) about Los Angeles, ourselves, our experiences in LA, maybe a Justin Bieber story? Also, no one has better dad jokes than us. Not even my own dad. (Sup Dad)! This experience is great for groups, teams, and individual solo travelers. We're about becoming best FRIENDS. At the start, I’m gonna hand you the best tasting WATER in the history of water. All that and we haven even walked yet? INCREDIBLE. From there, we'll have y'all laughing so hard at our jokes and stories that you'll forget that we are hiking up a hill to the Hollywood Sign. Did we just become best friends?? WHAT ABOUT THE PICTURES? We stop at the BEST PHOTO STOPS for your own Cover Shoot. I've designed this hike for Instagram and can GUARANTEE You'll get 10+likes/photo. You’ll receive PROFESSIONAL photos of the sign, the skyline, and scenic panoramas that may break the internet with likes. Other tours take 1-2 pictures. I'll give you 75+ (Best Friend Move). We've been doing this for 5 years and love being the LA ambassadors to the world. Let us be your friend in LA and show you how LA is done by an actual local and not a "tour company."
Private Mountain Horseback ride
You will start your adventure at Stone Fox Ranch where you will meet our wonderful tribe of animals. We will connect you with a horse based on your weight, energy, and experience level. While we are getting your horse ready, feel free to hang out with our dogs and chickens. We will take a moment to fill out waivers, give you a crash course riding demonstration, and we'll get you mounted and on our way. We'll explore the gorgeous Santa Monica mountains and possibly stumble across a family of deer. The trails are endless in our local mountains with over 8,000 acres of rolling tall-grass plains, oak savannahs and dramatic peaks with an abundance of local flora and fauna. You will certainly enjoy the peacefulness of the mountains with breathtaking panorama views during a guided intimate ride with our happy horses. Other things to note Please be on time! Plan on arriving 10 minutes early and keep LA traffic in mind, we allow a 15 minute grace period. If there is a time/date that you don’t see available, send us a private message!
Sunset canyon horseback trail ride
Most evenings and each month on the full moon we ride out to enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of the Santa Monica mountains at night. It is an amazing experience! The terrain is varied so we'll travel over dry arroyos, through grassy fields and through oak groves that were devastated by the Woolsey fire last year! Depending on your level of experience, we can climb up about 700 feet to a lookout point to take in the full spectacle of the full moon or sunset or enjoy a leisurely ride on a wide, flat trail through the park. Either way the magic and fun continues in this 2 hour equestrian experience. When you first arrive at my ranch you'll have time to help groom and tack up your mount, with a riding lesson included in the experience to tune up your skills. This will give you an opportunity to get to know the horses, and give your experienced wranglers an opportunity to assess your skill level and pair you with the best mount for you! Then we ride out in a small group from my front pasture into Cheseboro Park at a slow pace to let the horses warm up. Afterward back at the ranch you'll help the wranglers unsaddle, and if the horses aren't going back out, you'll help feed and grain them, and tuck them in for a good night's rest. This is a magical experience that you won't soon forget. Other things to note My horses are not hacks. Be honest about your skill level. Helmets are mandatory not optional. In booking this ride you acknowledge that you acknowledge that although we do everything possible to keep the experience/guests safe this is a dangerous activity that could result in injury, pain or death.

I also specialize in teaching beginners but intermediates are welcome too. After surfing we'll drive up one of the most spectacular canyons in the Santa Monica Mountains. I'll take you on my favorite hike in the area to enjoy a picnic lunch. Next we'll head to our campsite. This is the real gem of the trip. I have access to private property with a jaw dropping view over the mountains and the ocean. To get there we drive the famous Mulholland highway ascending high up along the crest of the Santa Monica Mountains. When we pull into the property you get to see the vineyard and all the resident animals as we drive to the back of the property to our campsite. A short walk from the car takes us to a secluded area where you will feel like you're in a true wilderness. The sunset, sunrise, and views of the ocean and San Fernando Valley are beautiful here. We'll relax, cook dinner, star gaze and enjoy a night out in the wild. Other things to note Surf locations are subject to change.

This healing space is for anyone in need of a reset! This experience is perfect for beginners, couples, groups, great for teams, and team building!

My Tibetan Bowls & Gong will also be played around your body creating a vibrational shield grounding you, clearing and releasing energies that no longer serve you. This unique individual healing experience I have been doing over the past years with individuals and pairs is meant to help us release, reconnect back with our higher selves and, most importantly, to tap back into the healing power of nature.

You will be able to look for eggs and feed some treats to them too. After some time with those guys we will move into the barn and meet the rest of the critters. There are goats, sheep, pigs and a mini horse and mini donkey. You will have lots of opportunities to take pictures with all the critters and really hang out with animals on the farm. Are you a photographer or an artist? Would you like to use the hour taking pictures or paintings? You definitely can do that. Just let me know before you come. Would you like more of a mommy and me hour? Let me know and I can plan some age appropriate activities to educate and inspire. You will get a good hour for the experience and at the end you will receive a little gift. I hope that you will walk away with a better understanding of the nature around you and the animals we share this planet with.
