Both options are great depending on your needs.When you’re looking for fun things to do in LA, you’ve definitely come to the right place! Bring your friends and come have an adventure to remember.
Scooting is the new way to experience LA!

We don’t cart bus-loads of people around. At Sunnyday Scoot, we keep our tours and adventure 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 our scheduling, you may actually have the luxury of a private tour at no additional cost to you!
Scoot Tip: If you specifically want to guarantee a private experience for yourself, family and/or friends, please contact us directly before reserving your Scoot.

Training on how to operate the Scoots
Professional, friendly, and knowledgeable guide(s)

5. What should I bring?
Yourself, your friends, and your family! Your co-workers, boss, or anyone you know that wants (or needs) to have a FUN time!

Scoot Tip #1: It’s going to be a sunny day and you’ll be ‘happy in a car without a roof,’ so if you plan on applying sunscreen, do so before you arrive.

Directions to your exact meeting location and where to park once you arrive will be emailed to you in your confirmation email at the time of booking. Meeting locations vary but are near Universal Studios, Warner Bros., and Walt Disney Studios.
Please arrive 15 minutes before your start time. Our tours and adventure 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.)
8. How long are the Tours? What about the Rides?
Joyrides are 15 minute rides with great mountain views.
Adventure Rides are 1 hour rides driving on street roads, through Griffith Park, and by famous studios.
Tours range from 2.5 to 3.5 hours and include the best sightseeing option we offer to explore and see LA’s top-rated destinations, learn the history of the area, scoot driving with many stops, and much more!
We offer a wide variety of start times for your convenience, from before sunrise to early evening. Please refer to the online calendar for the most accurate and up-to-date times.
Some experiences such as the Movie Tour, Romance Packages, and private tours are booked on a case-by-case basis. They can be arranged by calling us at 818-687-2668.
10. Is there walking on the tours?
Yes, to see the sights, our tours do require mild walking. In most cases this means walking through a flat or 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 for hiking boots or mountain climbing equipment on any tour. Please call us if you would like more specific details.

There is absolutely no smoking at all before, during, or after any activities or while with Sunnyday Scoot.
Scoot Tip:Much of the land we tour and ride by is in forest fire risk zones.
5. Does Sunnyday Scoot have a refund or cancellation policy?
We understand that life happens and sometimes you might need to cancel after you have scheduled. If you need to cancel, we offer a full refund if you notify us at least seven days prior to your reservation date. If you cancel within seven days of your reservation date, no refunds will be given.
Note: There are no refunds for no-shows or late arrivals, so please allow for plenty of driving time to get to your meeting location and time to park. Plan to arrive at least 15 minutes early as we do leave on time.

When calculating the days prior to your reservation date, the day of your tour or ride is not considered as one of the days.
We reserve the right to refuse service, and if such occurs, no refund will be given. We have never had to do this and we hope we never have to. Some examples of why we might have to refuse service would be showing up under the influence of drugs or alcohol or neither rider for the Scoot having a valid drivers license.
Reservations and Groups:
1. I can't wait to do this, how much does it cost?
Our prices vary so you can find an option that fits your level of fun.
Joyrides = $20 per person
Adventure Rides = $65 per person
Tours range from $140 – $199 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 a fun and interactive scooting adventure!
2. How do I pay?
Now that you’re ready to say yes to fun, you can reserve online using our interactive real-time calendar or call us at 818-687-2668. Payments are taken at the time you reserve your Scoot and we accept all major credit cards.
3. Can I pay the day of my tour or ride when I show up in person?
Unfortunately no. All of our scooting activities need to be prearranged and completely paid for, in advance, by either calling us or by booking online. We do not take any payments in person.
4. Can I come alone?
Scoot prices are per person, based on double occupancy. 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.
5. Can Sunnyday Scoot 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. Please visit our Group Options page for more details and contact us directly with any additional questions and to reserve!
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 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 us.
Driving and Safety:
1. Do I have to wear a helmet? How about a seat belt?
Yes! Safety is always our first priority at Sunnyday Scoot! It is 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 and brag to all your friends! To determine your preferred helmet size click here.
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: Ourfavorite type of eye protection… sunglasses, as it’s almost always a Sunny Day in LA.
3. 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.
4. I'm visiting from out of the country, can I take a ride or tour?
Yes! We love to have people join us from all over the world!! As long as you have a valid international drivers license and you’re at least 21 years of age, you can drive a Scoot. Passengers must be at least 7 years old.
6. 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.
