Olde Riverside Heritage Tour

You’ll discover a unique, 140 year-old city rich in carefully preserved  history and tradition.  The city has a unique character with over 100 landmarks designated by the Cultural Heritage Board.  These include examples of fine architecture, places where historic events occurred, archaeological sites plus several historic districts.

Hear fascinating stories about Mt. Rubidoux, Bankers Row, Fairmount Park, the Raincross, and a lost Chinese settlement.  Learn how Riverside became the richest city in the U. S. at the turn of the 20th century.  Rediscover the Mission Inn – world famous city, state and national landmark.  See where “Gone With the Wind” was secretly previewed in Riverside.

View the Parent Navel Orange Tree that gave birth to a billion-dollar industry and take an inside guided tour of a city landmark, an 1891 Queen Anne mansion or other private home offering testimony to Riverside’s unique past.

Explore the Victoria Greenbelt, a seven-mile linear garden with citrus groves. Shade trees, shrubs and flowers line the majestic old avenue named  after the Queen of England.

Our specialized service includes experienced tour guides who will board your bus and entertain your passengers, regaling them with anecdotes and local history.  Group excursions are 4-5 hours in duration. Fee  includes lunch, guide and admissions. Minimum of 25 people per tour.
