Oakland Tours and Experiences


Travel is something we all look forward to every year. Some say that it's an indulgent expense, when money spent on travel could have gone towards your home loan or "building for your future". It's not about counting the places or countries you've been to, or ticking off every item on your bucket list, but it's all about the experience, fond memories, interaction with new people, which impacts you as a person. Personally I love to travel, and when I can’t, I look for the “staycation”, which to me means doing something local either on my own, or with family and friends. I can’t say I have done all of the ideas below, but they are on my list!




Velocipede Tours

Imagine a rolling pedal party on a 14 passenger bicycle complete with custom sound system and beer. The say they offer only the Bay's best beer, customized event tours, private tours or public mixers. Sounds like a fun day!

444 Harrison Street, Oakland, CA 94607
Neighborhood: Jack London District
Phone: (925) 517-3325



City Fun Group

A good old scavenger hunt!  What a great idea. You use your smart phone, along with their guide, and head out to find 150+ items including monuments, statues, points of interest. To score points, you send in your photos, how modern. What sounds the most fun is you also perform challenges and answer trivia questions to earn additional points. It’s like living through a board game and definitely on my list.

1685 Bryant St, San Francisco, CA 94103
Neighborhood: Outside Oakland
Phone: (415) 553-8193


Gondola Servizio

If you are looking for an authentic Gondola Cruise, you have to try this out! Glide across Lake Merritt in a beautiful Venetian Gondola while being serenaded by a Gondolier.  My gondolier was a UC Berkeley student who had a gorgeous voice, especially under the echo of the bridge. I usually grab a bite to eat and a bottle of wine from Whole Foods to enjoy on the boat with my guest. The boats are from Italy!

1520 Lakeside Dr., Oakland, CA 94612
Neighborhood: Lake Merritt
Phone: (510) 663-6603
Toll-free: (866) 737-8494


Wine and Design Oakland

Wine and Design is the perfect place for a fun night out. They offer a range of affordable private and public paint and sip parties for all ages. This has become such a popular thing to do with friends. It's a 1 or 2 hour classes and you'll be provided with the glasses, canvasses, paint brushes, as a local artist guides you through the evening. No matter what your art looks like in the end, it’s a one of a kind and with it comes the fun memories of learning something new.

222 Broadway, Oakland, CA 94607
Phone: (510) 251-9463


East Bay Winery Bike Tours

Taste and learn about wine one glass at a time. They take you out in small groups and are provided with the bikes, helmets, and experienced leader and safe routes. When we called to learn more about this event, we were told lunch is provided during the 1.5 hour event and the leader will transport your wine purchases back to home base.

655 3rd Street, Oakland, CA 94607
Neighborhood: Jack London District
Phone: (510) 285-7884



The bay area continues to be a popular place to call home.
