I had a great time. The tour was well planned, the driver was courteous, informative and professional. I would definitley recommend this tour to others.
A long day but most enjoyable. i have to say Monterey was a bit too touristy for me but I absolutely loved Carmel. In all honesty, I would have preferred longer in Carmel and less time in Monterey. The drive round 17-mile Drive was really interesting and I enjoyed our brief stop at Pebble Beach Golf Club. John was our driver and gave us all the information in an excellent commentary.
Amazing trip in a spectacular landscape, and with a nice, knowledgeable and safe driver/guide.
best day ever. It was an all day trip and we had the front seat. The driver was very informative friendly.. would go again in a heart beat.
A wonderful trip down the coast. Beautiful part of the coast finished off with a stop at Pebble Beach. A round of golf would have been nice. I knew it was a golf resort unlike some who were disapointed it was not actually a beach.
It was just what we expected. Loved the views and the comentary from our driver. Wished we had more time in Carmel. The bus had to park so far away, and the time was so limited that all we had time to do was walk down the beach and back up to the bus.
We enjoyed the tour. Beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean.
The tour guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful.
He answered all our questions.
Lovely journey South along the Pacific coast although our views were interupted by the fog, afternoon might be better time. It's a lovely journey and the aquarium at Monterey is fantastic. The 17mile drive is a must do for scenery and the fabulous houses. Carmel is a lovely little town.
great trip would recommend our driver Antonio wa great guy
The scenery is unbelievably beautiful - plenty of photo stops. The tour guide, John was friendly and knowledgeable. A wonderful day
A truly lovely day. The 17 mile drive is breath taking. I enjoyed the time spent in Carmel better then Monterey but that is my choice. Carmel was well worth staying much longer then the hour we had there.If you get the chance do this trip We had a great guide called Danny who made the day even better.
This tour is great! Beatiful landscapes and the 17 mile drive is georgous. Very organized and the tour bus was very comfortable and the driver Ray was very educate. The Aquarium is fantastic for the kids and Carmel is so cute!
KENNETH!!! The best tour guide yet!! Had all kinds of history and information about this area, and the history.
Great way to see this area when you are staying in San Francisco. All day trip with, we had Ray as a guide and he was very informative of the areas.
Great tour, we really enjoyed it. This is a local Tour and that is where you meet at their office. Not the best place, but thankfully the driver dropped us off at the cruise terminal when we finished that night.
Fabulous tour,our guide Danilo, was outstanding. Really beautiful day!
Loved the trip to Monterey. Not enough time at Carmel and we were not told where the beach was, but then again, we were only in Carmel for 30 minutes..
Great tour, very long day. Would have loved more time at the Monterey Aquarium - one of the best aquariums I have ever seen. Well worth the trip if you have limited time to see the coast.
The tour was great the coach was comfortable. We had a 2 hour stop in Monterey and a 1 1/2 hour stop in Carmel with a couple other little stops for restroom/snacks and photo opportunities. The guide narrated most of the way down to Carmel so this was interesting which we would not have got if we had hired a car and driven ourselves.
The trip was just what we needed. Our driver was so full of information which made the trip very worth while. The only down side of the trip and one that could not be avoided was in Carmel the driver was not able to drive down to the beach which some people would have liked. All and all a very long day but well worth the investment.
The the tour was excellent. The weather cooperated. The guide was excellent.
