The driver and tour guide, “Bear”, was great. He knew the history of Catalina and shared many stories as we passed historical landmarks. Highly recommend as an overview and seeing what you may want to do later.

I just loved the scenic bus tour that My sister and I took on Thursday afternoon. Our bus driver was so knowledgeable about the history of Avalon and Catalina Island and stopped the bus several times, so we could take pictures of the panoramic views of the island below.
