About Us

The Best. Day. Ever. in Orange County, California.

Orange County Urban Adventures began with Michiel Stavast, a Dutch long-time tour guide, with a passion for unlocking the secrets of a city or the hinterland.

Michiel worked for more than 15 years as a tour manager for musicians travelling all over the world. In this job he found his love for helping travelers discover new and unique experiences. After moving to the United States he worked for several travel brands guiding guests from all over the world on their adventure travel in North America. After visiting all 50 USA states, nearly all Canadian and Mexican provinces, as well as many National Parks, Michiel decided to start his own Urban Adventures tour company in Orange County, CA and Seattle, WA. Both unique areas to visit along the West Coast of the United States.

The team in Orange County look forward to offering you an unforgettable experience during your stay in California.
