What an amazing trip! Our driver was fantastic and very inclusive of everyone on the tour. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone
Excellent route and a very knowledgeable tour guide, John. Others on the tour were companionable and the day went very well.
Fabulous scenery - driver/tour guide very knowledgable and a good singer! Great day away from the busyness of the city.
Kenneth our driver was fantastic. Provided a running commentary with plenty of humour. Well worth doing.
Yosemite trip was great but the driver put us 8 blocks from our hotel on Powell.
Our wine tour was fantastic on Tuesday! Hotel distance was fine.
The trip to Montery/Carmel was excellent. No problems with the distance from our hotel.
Kenneth the tour guide/driver was the BEST!!! Tour guide we have ever had!!!!! He was so much fun the whole trip, he showed up awesome stops, was patient when we wanted to stop and take pictures etc!! Tour was fabulous as was he!! Thanks Kenneth!!! :)
Was my favorite tour. I loved the scenery and the 17 mile drive. My only disappointment was i didn't get to see the mission in Carmel. Not enough time. I really think you should have a tour just for the people who aren't doing the museum in Monterey. Then the time could be split more evenly between Monterey and Carmel.
Saw everything that was promised. Ken the driver was great. Highly recommend.
It was a beautiful day, and the views were fantastic! 2 hour in Monterey and 1 hour in Carmel was just about right.
It was a long drive, but the drive made stops at interesting places, and he had tons of interesting stories to share, so we were never bored. I highly recommend this trip!
It was an amazing trip. The driver was constantly entertaining us the whole time with jokes, facts etc. Must do activity in San Francisco!
kenneth was our tour guide. He made the trip fun, relaxing, and informative. my daughter and I would have enjoyed more time in Carmel. it was confusing trying to figure out which tour bus we needed to head to. It would've been helpful to have each driver holding up a sign indicating the ticket color
Very enjoyable trip. The coastal drive is beautiful and Carmel and Monterey are both lovely. Would have been nice to have more time in Carmel. The driver was excellent and very entertaining. He also gave us lots of useful information about the area. Definitely worth doing.
Your driver was excellent. Very informative and helpful. Full marks!
This was a quick, but terrific way to see the coast. We very much appreciated the knowledge and hospitality of the guide Kenneth. Extra stops at road-side bakery and fruit stand were enjoyed by all. Pick-up and drop-off at our hotel was flawless. Thank you for a great trip.
The tour was very nice,with a lot of stops to take pictures. The landscapes where beautiful inspite of the cold and bad weather.The guide was very amusing and explained everything with details and jokes. I highly recomend this trip!!!!!

First off, our tour guide Ken G was absolutely fantastic. He made this tour exceptional with his personality and professionalism and his camaraderie with the attendees. Additionally, the tour itself was also great. On time, did not feel rushed, able to take photos and stop wherever we wanted. The only issue I would have, is in the future would want to spend more time in Carmel perhaps going there earlier before Monterary because there is seemingly more to do there and by the time we got there, was a bit tired. Otherwise, great tour and tour guide.
Great day trip. Plenty of stops for pictures along the way. Some of the most breathe taking sights you will ever see. Plenty of time in Carmel to see the sights and eat lunch. Don't know if I would do the aquarium again. Driver was great.
