Frequently Asked Questions

Tours and Rides:

  • Chevron down 1. What's the difference between a Tour and a Ride?
  • Great question! There are 2 main differences:

    1. Length of Time – Sightseeing Tours are much longer than Rides. Tours are 2 hours or more while Rides are one hour hour or less.
    2. Rides are mainly a driving experience. Tours combine  driving & time exploring sights outside of the vehicle. 

    Tours: To really get to know an area, you need to explore it! Our Sightseeing Tours are longer in length and allow you plenty of time to get out of your Scoot, hear information on local history and have time on your own to explore, take pictures, and walk around famous LA areas. Tours are the perfect combination of sightseeing and Scoot driving all in one!

    Rides: If you’re looking for a shorter adventure focused mainly on the fun of driving these Scoots, then a ride might be more your style. You stay in the Scoot the entire time, except to switch drivers with your guest if you want to.

  • Chevron down 2. It's my first trip to Los Angeles, what will I see?
  • ​On our Tours, you will see top tourist sights in LA such as: The Hollywood Sign, Griffith Observatory, Warner Bros. Studios, Disney Animation Studios, The LA Zoo, and many more!!

    We offer different tours and rides to meet your needs so you can choose a scooting experience that matches up with your schedule and the sights you want to see.

    ​Visit our Tour and Rides page to learn more.

    Once you’ve picked your activity, reserve your Scoot and get ready to have a great time driving these super cute mini-cars and exploring LA in the most fun way possible!

  • Chevron down 3. I live in LA, is a Tour or a Ride right for me?
  • Both options are great even for locals. 

    When you’re looking for fun things to do in LA, you’ve definitely come to the right place!

    Our tours are designed for tourists as well as locals! You will have fun and create new experiences at places that may be very familiar to you and learn hidden facts that you never knew about the area. It’s always a good time when you’re a tourist in your own town. #touristinmyowncity

    If you have less time, a lot of locals really enjoy our adventure rides. They are a simple, inviting way to experience driving in these fun vehicles. In fact, many locals find it so fun that they return for another adventure.

    Please arrive at least 10 minutes before your start time.

    Our tours and rides do depart on time.

    Make sure you allow for extra driving time to get to the meeting spot as everything you have heard about LA traffic is true, it’s sometimes really slow moving. Because of this, GPS and map program estimated driving times might not be accurate. Plan accordingly so you don’t miss your tour or ride.

  • Chevron down 9. What are your start times?
  • We offer a wide variety of start times for your convenience, from before sunrise to late afternoon.

    Refer to the online calendar below for the most accurate and up-to-date times.

     

    Private experiences are booked on a case-by-case basis. They can be arranged by calling us at (818) 687-2668.

    Adventure Rides are 1 hour rides driving on street roads, through Griffith Park, and by famous studios.

    *Note: Tour and Ride times are approximate and only estimates. They will fluctuate due to many variables, some outside of our control. Factors that may affect times include light or heavy traffic on the roads, popularity of sights we are visiting, driving speeds, etc. Therefore, please know that times listed for each activity are only estimates and may vary by 10 minutes in either direction. If you are planning something right after your scooting experience, please allow for extra time as there is a possibility we might end a little late. In addition, if all participants for the same activity arrive early and the guides can begin the training early, that’s when the experience will begin. If this occurs, your experience might end earlier than expected.*

  • Chevron down 11. Is there walking on the tours?
  • Yes, to see the sights, tours do require mild walking.

    In most cases this means walking through a flat or an uphill parking lot or sidewalk to reach the destination.

    We do park as close as we can to each sight, so there’s no need to break out your hiking boots or mountain climbing equipment for any of our activities.

    Please call us if you would like more specific details.

  • Chevron down 12. Are your activities usually crowded?
  • ​We don’t cart bus-loads of people around.

    At Sunnyday Scoot, we keep our tours and rides small and intimate so that you get the personal attention that you deserve. Typically, you are joined by a few other Scoot fans like yourself. However, depending on scheduling, you may actually have the luxury of a private tour at no additional cost to you!

    International phone number? No problem. You can provide the name, phone number, and room number of the local hotel you will be staying at. Also be sure to check the email that you provided with your booking; as that may be the only way we can reach you if you are not at your hotel.

    If you have members of your party that are under 18, a parent or their legal guardian will need to be present to sign a waiver on their behalf.

    All participants must be able to read, write, and understand the English language.

  • Chevron down 4. What is your Animal Policy?

    Scoot Tip: Much of the land we drive by and visit  is in forest fire risk zones.

Reservations and Groups:

  • Our prices vary so you can find an option that fits your level of fun.

    Joyrides = $22 per person

    Adventure Rides = $65 per person

    Tours range from $140 – $155 per person.

    Double Occupancy: Prices are based on double occupancy. Each vehicle (Scoot) fits two people. Double occupancy means that two people ride in and can drive each Scoot. Unlike other scooters that only fit one person at a time, with Sunnyday Scoot, you and your guest are both part of the experience together!

    Scoot Tip: What sets us apart from our competition is that this is a social experience. Bring your date, your best friends, your favorite group of co-workers and come have an interactive scooting adventure!

    In order for you to reserve your own Scoot, you would need to pay the double occupancy price.

    Believe us when we tell you, it’s great to bring a guest and make this a social experience, but if you want to have a Scoot of your own and drive the entire time as it IS that much fun, you are more than welcome to reserve your very own Scoot.

    Scoot Tip: Our online booking system does require passenger information when reserving your Scoot. To avoid any confusion, please type “Individual” as your guest’s name and choose “Small” for the guest helmet size preference.

  • Chevron down 5. Can you accommodate groups?
  • Yes! We love working with groups of all types and sizes including friends, families, community organizations, and businesses. We run our rides and tours with a small number of Scoots in order to keep them personal and fun, even when working with larger groups.

    Groups under 12 can choose from our normal tour and ride options by clicking here.

  • Chevron down 6. We have an odd number of people in our group. What should we do?
  • You are more than welcome to book multiple Scoots when using our online booking system. Scoots booked directly online are based on double occupancy pricing.

    *See question #4 under Reservations & Groups above on how to book a Scoot if you have an odd number in your group such as 3, 5, 7, etc.

    Depending on the size of your group and our availability, our team may be able to offer special pricing for groups with uneven participants. If this pertains to your group, feel free to call.

Driving and Safety:

  • Chevron down 1. Do I need a drivers license to drive a Scoot?
  • Yes, the State of California does require a valid drivers license to operate a moving vehicle, like a Scoot, and drivers must be at least 21 years of age.

  • Chevron down 2. Is eye protection required?
  • Eye protection is not required by law although it’s no fun to get ‘a fly in your eye’.

    So for safety, we do strongly suggest eye protection as we are driving around in open cars.

    Scoot Tip: Our favorite type of eye protection… sunglasses, as it’s almost always a Sunny Day in LA.

    .  

  • Chevron down 3. Do I have to wear a helmet? How about a seat belt?
  • Yes! Safety is always our first priority at Sunnyday Scoot!

    It’s also the law in California so helmets and seat belts must be worn on every scooting activity.

    Scoot Tip: We will provide you with helmets that are super light so you might even forget you’re wearing one. Plus, wearing a helmet will make you look super adventurous in your pictures, so get ready to show them off on Instagram!  To determine your preferred helmet size click here.

  • Chevron down 4. Are Scoots safe and street legal?
  • Yes! Safety is our top priority so we only do things that are safe and legal. Your Scoot has many safety features such as seat belts, roll bars, and turn signals. Click here for a link to our safety page and training videos.

  • Chevron down 5. Are Scoots handicapped-friendly?
  • Scoots have only hand controls so they are very user-friendly.
