We had a fantastic day and it was everything we hoped it would be. Previous reviews praised our driver, Walter, and they were right as he was a perfect host ! All the arrangements went to plan and helped to make the day so special. Thanks to everyone involved.
Great trip. Our driver was a comedian im sure, fun and full of facts all the way there and back.A great day out Monterey and Carmel are both very nice places to visit.
Well worth it.
Great trip and our driver, Kenneth, was excellent ! Long day though. The trip started at 9:00am ish and we didn't get back til 8:30pm. Don't make early dinner plans back in town! lol
Fantastic and memorable tour! This was my first tour via Viator and I am now a customer for life. My tour guide/driver was funny, personable, knowledgable and a safe driver. Out of a five day stay in San Francisco this day was my favorite day! It was such a beautiful drive and a MUST SEE! A great value for your money!
An amazing day out. Good value for money - it was a full day. We were picked up from our hotel at 8:15am and it was around 9pm when we returned. Out driver John was very informative and a very patient guy. A perfect day out for one of our party's birthday
One of the best trips ever! Our tour guide was great and full of information. The scenic drive was spectacular, as were Monterey and Carmel themselves. Highly recommend this tour.

This trip was fantastic. Our driver, Ken was very knowledgeable and an excellent driver. A very memorable drive on a very interesting 17 miles. Would highly recommend this trip.
Always a beautiful scenic trip
I visit every two years and take this trip everytime.
The trip is made that much better if your lucky enough to get Kennith as your driver. Full of information and keeps you entertained the whole way
Thank you Kenneth from Australia
Beautiful and worth the expense! The amount of time spent at each location was ideal and the information provided by the driver was interesting and informative. It's a long day but well worth the time and money!
We had a good time. The views are expectacular and the tour guide was very informative. He was narrating like a professor. Thank you too for taking our pictures. I never stopped telling friends about this trip. It is worth the time and money.
Driver, Kenneth, was very interesting and knowledgeable, and could handle the bus well in tight quarters. Tour was lovely with ample time for lunch in Monterey.
We loved Monterey with its beaches and wharf and an aquarium. The Aquarium had penguins which my daughter loves,puffins, jellyfish, sea otters, eels and much more. We would have liked more time in Monterey. John Steinback the author lived there and has a street named "Cannery Row," after a book he wrote. We read some of his books. ON the 17 mile drive we seen beautiful scenery, beaches, pacific ocean, famous houses and the famous Peddle beach golf course with very expensive fees ( for the rich and famous I am sure) Carmel they took us for an hour to shop for designer clothing which we were not impressed with and would have liked to stay in Monterey longer. Clint Eastwood has a house there but no one can see it from the road. He is no longer the major of Carmel. We seen sea lions along the coast of Monterey. G;ad we took the tour.
it was a great trip, we are glad we did it. the weather was good for us. the driver I think was Adolfo he was great and gave us lots of great info. the timing was great and we got back right on time. the views were amazing and we got lots of great pic's. for sure a must do trip!!!!!
Our driver ( Kenneth) did an excellent job at stoping at the right places to inform us of the history of the area. He was entertaining and accomodating everyone.
Fantastic day trip, driver was very personable, gave great information thoughout the trip. Just enough time for enjoy the beautiful scenery
Tour was fantastic... Our driver made the drive fun and entertaining for us which made the drive go by very quick. Monterey was ok for me except for views of the bay, thoughs where stunning, Carmel is absolutely amazing such a beautiful, quaint town. The 17mile drive... No words can describe!!!
This was an excellent trip from start to finish. The tour guide was excellent.
Best trip ever! Walter was a great guide full of information. The scenic drive was spectacular, as were Monterey and Carmel themselves. Highly recommend this tour.
My tour to Monrerrey and Carmel was just amazing!! I was a solo traveller from Argentina and had a beautiful day with a very good and helpful driver and also spent nice walks and talks with group people.
This tour is a must do if you are in San Francisco.I did it on June 17th 2014
Thought our guide Walter was funny and knowledgeable about the tour. He gave us ample time to view the sites even when one of our tour buddies got lost and took about 20 minutes more than she should have at Cannery Row. He also told us about special views along the way, how much time we had at a stop and good places to eat and see. Enjoyable day trip.
