The Monterey, Carmel Day Trip was a joy and one of the highlights of our trip to SF. Our guide, Kenneth, was so knowledgeable with history of the area along with a good sense of humor. I can't tell you how much I learned about the area that we toured. Kenneth is the primary reason we found this tour a five star.

We had a great day despite the fog...to start with, the scenery is fabulous and Kenneth our Driver looks after you very well. Monterey Cannery Row for lunch was a great stop.

We had a brilliant time at the Monterey Aquarium and Carmel. We also stopped at Pebble Beach which was nice to get some photos of. The drive down 17 mile drive was very nice as well. There were enough loo stops which was good as well. I would highly recommend this trip.

We enjoyed our tour of Monterey, Carmel, and the 17-Mile Day Trip. Our tour guide and driver, Kenneth, was very informative and amusing. Our favorite place was the coastline of Monterey; we had a nice lunch there. What a beautiful place. Carmel is more of a tourist trap with lots of expensive shops, and it's a long walk to the beach since the rich, elite types who live there don't want the tour buses near their beach. Pebble Beach was very nice too. It was a long day, but worth it.

Brilliant trip in a very comfortable coach with a knowledgable driver. Monterey and Carmel are a must see although fog obscured our view of the coastline on the journey down we still enjoyed the day very much

I thought the trip was very interesting with a variety of stops. The bus driver, Kenneth, gave a great deal of background information, which was helpful. I am glad that I did not sign up for the Aquarium tour in Monterey as the majority of the people were unhappy that they did not have enough time to tour Monterey. The trip is a bit long and you need to be prepared for that.
