Personalized local tours for non-locals!


We love living at the beach and specialize in coastal areas of Orange County, California (Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, etc.).

We can show you more in one day then you could discover it in a week by yourself!  We serve one to five persons per tour

and each day is customized to the client’s request.  We don’t do Disneyland or other “tourist traps”.


We actually show our clients how the local beach people live.  We serve only English speaking tourists unless they wish

to provide an interpreter.  Our fee is $300 per day with a $40 referral fee paid to the travel agent or concierge for booking with

us.  The client may write the check to the travel agent directly and the agent may automatically deduct their fee.  The agent

may then forward a check for $260 to Susan Bartoletti.  Alternatively, the client may pay us directly and we will forward the

fee payment to the agent.


We request that the clients provide their own transportation (a rental car) or we can book a limousine service for them (the

usual fee rate is $ 55 per hour).  We require prepayment by check payable to Susan Bartoletti.  We may be reached

24 hours a day at (714) 381-1805.  All other expenses incurred for the day of the tour (meals, ferry fees, etc.) will be paid

by the clients.


Some of the scenarios that our clients may experience are:


      Bicycling along the beach

      Art and food festivals

      Outdoor farmer's markets & antique markets

      Fabulous restaurants – Orange County has over 8,000.

      Antique & exotic car shows

      Live theater & comedy shows

      Quaint shopping

      Nostalgic ferry rides

      Boat tours and boat parades

      Sandcastle contests

      Incredible local music festivals and musical talent

      Tours of our beautiful homes and estates

      Walking tours along the bay or ocean


We will be happy to welcome to design your personal agenda.  We are fun, outgoing, energetic, sophisticated and we

look forward to sharing our very special slice of paradise with you. 


Thank you!
