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.
We saw so many things we would have missed if we wouldn't have taken the tour. Our driver was very knowledgeable . Good day. The tour ran about 90 minutes later than we expected, but it was a good tour.
Excellent !!! coach driver was excellent, great commentary and loads of information.
beautiful part of the world...
this was a fantastic trip, well worth the money. The driver was great, he really made the trip, a real asset to the company
Very enjoyable, Wolfgang very informative and an excellent guide. Really enjoyed the day. I would do again if in San Francisco
Richard, our driver was full of historic information and made this trip well worth or 30 year wait, as we honeymooned in San Francisco July 1983 and mudslides prevented us from touring the area. It was a long day for us and also the driver, but so worth it!
This was a fantastic tour! I loved it. We could spent sufficient time at each spot. The driver -cum- tour guide was amazingly experienced. I really enjoyed his guidance.
The tour was great. The only glitch was with the pick up. It did not happen. We had to rush, find our own transportation, and get to the tour office for the departure.
it was on time.bus was comfy. driver cum guide, wolfgang was superb.... knowledgeable, great sense of humor and fed us with extra bits of info about the people and places. he is definitely the best guide I have come across. made our trip most memorable.
Breathtaking views of the ocean ,make this tour a must see. Our tour guide, john was excellent and most informative.
The views were amazing. It makes you appreciate the beauty of America. Our guide was witty and well informed. It was a pleasure enjoying this wonderful trip.
our driver whoi unfortunately cant recall the name now,was friendly,good sense of humor and very knowledgeable of the geogrphy of the area.he mad us stop at the best bakery in montrey,gave us enough time at the aquarium,stopped at the right stops to take pictures of beautiful landscape,seals and the amazing restless sea...worth the value of money and very enjoyable
This was a very good tour and our guide handled all of our questions easily. We had enough time at all of our stops to do everything we wanted and we always knew what we were doing and why. We were always told the best spot for photos and this saved us time and effort.
On our recent trip to San Francisco, after reading alot of reviews, we decided to join your tour to Monterey and Carmel. The tour was good despite the rain in the afternoon at Pebble Beach. My family enjoyed the cruise along the spectacular coastline and the lunch at Monterey. The trip was well planned and it provided sufficient time to explore Monterey town and shop at Carmel. Lots of beautiful scenery to capture.
We were driven along California's stunning coast to the beautiful seaside towns of Monterey and Carmel. The cruise along the spectacular coastline was scenic. We stop along the coast for photo shot and then continue to explore the beautiful town, had lunch and visited the aquarium. Then continued driving along the 17-Mile scenic drive which is the home to the world renowned Pebble Beach golf course and magnificient mansions belong to the American rich and famous and celebrities.
Next, though it was raining, we stop for photo at the popular Lone Cypress tree, the most photographed tree in the world.
We finish the day with a stop at the enchanting Carmel by the sea, with a charming downtown shopping, before returning to San Francisco via the famous Silicon Valley.
Highly recommended trip if you are at San Francisco.
Thoroughly enjoyed the trip the driver was excellent he let us have plenty of time at the stops would recommend this trip awesome
The tour guide was fantastic, explaining everything indepth. I was less interested in Carmel/Monterey Bay and more in the drive there which is absolutely beautiful but both towns were pretty and nice as well. Recommended
The landscape is absolutely beautiful. The resturants available were outstanding and affordable.
Really enjoyed this your, Michael our guide was fun, scenery was spectacular, if a little foggy early on. Had a delicious lunch at The Fish Hopper in Monterey. Highlight particularly for my husband was the 18th hole at Pebble Beach!
Excellent, beautiful day , excellent tour guide/driver and lots of good people on this trip. all of them were very timely and return on the times as stated by the driver. I would recommend this trip to others and would do this again.
Our driver was great. Fell in love with Carmel, wouldn't go back to Monterey, felt it was nothing but a tourist trap. 17 Mile Drive was beautiful.
Spectacular tour and a very knowledgable and entertaining guide. Be sure to get a seat on the right side of the coach for gorgeous ocean views.
Had a fantastic day out. Really enjoyed all the stops they were all great. Our driver was fantastic and kept us fully informed . For me it really was a case of saying "it did what it said on the tin".
Delivered everything we thought we had bought.
Marvelous experience. Our Tour Guide - Wolfgang, was just incredibly well versed with every bend. We learnt a lot about the local architecture, the landscapes, the local produce and points of interest, while being entertained with factoids and snippets from movie/tv show references. And the locales by themselves are well worth every penny. Loved it and would totally recommend it.
